One of the best holiday park that I've seen in the south island ! I went there during my bike trip and booked a cabin for 2 nights. It's totally in the middle of nowhere perfect to have a good rest ! All the facilities are brand new : shower, kitchen, beds.. everything is Clean, Excellent quality and easy to use.
+1 for the fresh eggs and vegies that you can get there !
Highly recommanded.

This was the best park we stayed in on the South Island. The facilities were great and clean. The kitchen well equiped and with a fire. Our hostess was very helpful. There were fresh herbs to use and the gardens were beautiful. Our adult daughter had had enough of sleeping in the van and hired a little cabin for the night which she said was very comfortable. We would definitely recommend this park.

Beautiful setting, clean facilities, great value for money and walking down to the river is a must. Freedom to choose your own camper site was great.

Loved my stay here, favourite place during my trip. Powered sites are close to amenities but still private enough with hedges between and wooden outdoor tables at most. The amenities were excellent, wood fired heater inside the fully equipped kitchen to keep cozy, lovely outdoor but enclosed tables, small charge for washer and dryer, lovely owner. If you get time go for a stroll down the back and check out the river! The rocklined river is gorgeous and worth the sandfly bite or two. Overall would highly recommend!

This a really lovely site next to the river with some lovely views. We were booked in for 2 nights but only stayed for 1 as unfortunately there was a bee infestation which meant we could not sit outside and unfortunately being stung several times whilst collecting the washing of the line.

We really enjoyed our overnight stay. The owner is very friendly. The facilities are clean and looked new. Our boys also had lots of fun playing with the resident Border Collie. :) We can highly recommend this campsite as a sleepover.

The bugs, argh the bugs! I’m sure it’s just the time of year and/or this part of the country but dive bombing bumble bees and sandflies do get frustrating. However they do have a meshed-in porch off the kitchen for bug free dining. Bugs aside, the facilities are wonderful, as are the hosts. Lots of room to pitch your tent and level private sections for campervans.

This was the best Park we stayed in on North or South Island. Location is stunning and staff and facilities top notch. It’s not in town (which is why it’s so nice) but only a short drive away you can find really good dinner and a phenomenal breakfast (try the banana and bacon pancake stack) at the Rivers Cafe.

Buy your vegetables from her garden. They were delectable! Friendly, warm and helpful service. Same price for powered and unpowered sites. Large area to camp but limited shade from trees. Good kitchen facilities. Bathroom would benefit from a bit more ventilation. Showers are on a 7-min timer but it is free. Dip in the river was an experience to remember (especially fighting those sandflies on the way back).

As good as it gets! Very clean and all of the needed facilities were there. This was our first camping since the pick-up of our motorhome in Christchurch on our way to Abel Tasman. The detour due to the earthquake highway works drove us through this place and it was perfect. A shame to have this as a basic :)

We stayed at this great park last night as a halfway spot between Blenheim and Hamner Springs. Super clean amenities, great host, stunning location. Thoroughly recommend. Thanks for the laughs Karen!
