Lounge area is clean and warm - a plus in winter ! Quiet and orderly park, showers hot and free. Has a laundromat which is handy.

This is one of the best places we have stayed on the South Island. The sites are nothing special but the facilities are excellent. Nice clean showers a large incredibly well equipped kitchen and a very reasonably priced laundry which is open 24/7. The host who is the owner is very helpful and quite friendly. The city water supply is however not very tasty so I would not suggest filling your tank.

Under new ownership.
Anete and Den have made this site special: it is spotlessly clean, the kitchen is fully equipped and the social area is comfortable. Hot showers and internet are free and internet has a strong signal throughout the site. But best of all is their warm welcome and local knowledge. Stay here if you can

Campingplatz nicht zu riesig, größtenteils Dauercamper. Alles sehr sauber, große Küchenausstattung vorhanden.

Lovely place to stay for the night. $18 to pitch my tent, clean facilities and a beautiful, cosy kitchen and dining area. The owner is a friendly, welcoming guy.

$36 for 2 on an unpowered site in winter 2017. John the owner is so friendly, gave us up to date weather info and road info during the floods and let us stay way past check out time. Great warm, clean dining area and long hot shower!
