Very welcoming site, with helpful, friendly management. Great location among the trees, and a good shuttle for the Alpine Crossing. Free wifi, showers, hair dryers. Large kitchen and good laundry facilities. Several walks directly from site.

OKish place. Weather was horrendous when I stayed though which gave it a bit of a damp wet vibe everywhere. Close to hikes. Facilities could do with an upgrade. The stove tops are useless. Was easier to bring my own stove in and cook.

It was our favourite campervan park on the North Island. The sites are set in lovely trees and beside a river. The hosts were really lovely and you can get burgers onsite. Everything was clean and in working order. Kitchen had utensils along with anything else you might need. It’s close to a lot of different walks. Really enjoyed it.

Wonderful place to stay, all campsites are separated for privacy, ideal for hiking, large kitchen, washer/dryer sometimes in use without pause, showers/toilets good. Spent there 2 nights. Very friendly staff. Interesting I-site, worth visiting!

I stayed before and after hiking the Tongariro Northern Circuit. I left my bags for free during the 4 day hike, and the shop had enough to add things I didn’t bring with me. I got a backpacker bed in the lodge for $28 a night, and had the whole room to myself one of the days. On weekends the place fills up so make sure to book ahead. There is a kitchen with all equipment needed, shuttles are easy to access, and a food truck with burgers, icecream, and coffee sets up outside.

Perfect location for exploring the National Park and the Taranaki Falls Track. The site is well maintained and had plentiful hot water in the showers. We had a powered site - the pitches were nicely segregated from each other but very small - not sure I’d want to stay here too many nights.

Really nice place!! Perfect for staying after climbing Tongariro. Great clean hot shower with plenty of space, no limit of hot water. Fully equiped kitchen with nice area to eat and chat. Free wifi and very big areas for vans. Also a convenient store where to buy staff. Laundry machine there perfect for cleaning after excursions! Its a bit of money but worthy after long day at Tongariro...better do reservation, as it was fully booked the night we stayed!

Don’t listen to bad reviews, this place is fabulous. They even have a bath in the ladies washroom. Lots of toilets and showers very clean. Big camp kitchen with everything you need. Nice spots to park, very private. Well set out campground with great walks everywhere. Helpful hosts.
Not cheap but worth it. $46 for 2 per night motor home.

Camper spots were tucked away slightly in some foliage, good separation between the other vans and campers. Great kitchen with dishes and pots/pans/cutlery available. Host was great!

The place is beautiful but the overall impretion is disapointing, all public facilities (WC, showers, kitchen) are dirty and smelly. And above all there is a polotical statment on the reception wall that made us feel very un-comfortable and un-wanted.
