So relaxing! Really hospitable, looked after above and beyond. Great showers, everything needed in the kitchen area. Powered site was perfect, plenty of room so spread out in the sun on the grass. Glow worms were easy to find at night. Enjoyed a unique horse carriage ride. Also had some delicious fish and chips. The park is close to the walking trails into the national park. Definitely the place to stay!

Loved my stay at Old MacDonalds. A real Kiwi holiday park with very friendly service. Showers were awesome with good pressure. Would come back again

Much the same as other reviews, this is a little strange if super quiet as campground is about 400m from reception. Staff were brilliant and helpful though. Booked our trip into the NP and we kept our van parked at the office for the day. WiFi was good. Facilities were good too. Open shower/toilet block so a bit cold but showers were powerful and hot so can’t complain. Laundry facilities were good and kitchen. Beautiful clear sky and quiet night with wildlife. Big pitches with some hedging between spots. Recommend!

Spacious farm ground, which had excellelent amenities. Clean and well kept shower and kitchen blocks. Was a much needed hot and powerful shower after our walk. Only downside was paid WiFi...

I wouldn't recommend this campground. It is way to expensive for what it is.
You may have clean toilets but I have seen some better showers on camping arias witch weren't that expensive. They don't have the offer of free wifi anymore, you can buy wifi but the MB dissapears way to fast so in the end you pay 2$ for 10 minutes wifi! You can also wash your clothes here but only with cold water and the dryer wont make your cloths very dry. On top of it all, annoying chicken made our dinner uncomfortable. I love animals but this was to much, they ate from our plates and won't leave us alone.

Nice place. Facilities are basic for the price. And the Campervan park was a little far from main office. I found it expensive for what it offer, buy is ok.

Our luck we didn't rely on the bad ratings... Located right next to the abel tasman with clean facilities and free hot showers. The chickens around are cute and the lovely arranged plants give you some privacy. 200 MB Internet free, 10 GB (!) more just 5 dollars...
