Nice location on a pretty cool designed lay out with lost of native foliage. Plenty of toilets and showers for everyone and for the price you can't beat it. Solid WiFi through out the grounds. Would stay again

Nice tropical looking place with a bench next to each parking spot. The showers and toilets were kept clean. Good location - can easily walk the local shops and restaurants.

The place however feels a little neglected. Many things didn't work such as most charging ports, both toasters etc.. not sure why they are just there if they are broken? We specifically chose this place because of washing facilities but 2 of the washing machines were filled with smelly stagnant water (really gross) and the other one was for cold washes.. Also was pouring with rain whilst we were there, got very cold and damp - no inside area to warm up/dry.

Orange Sheep moter park was great...
so simple to check in....
find your spot... fill in form, put money and form in little bag and put in the honesty box..
so amazing to be in your own private little rainforest
I would recommend and definitely return.
facilities were great... just need your gumboots if it is raining as the ground by the showers and toilets flood...

Now known as “Orange Sheep”, this site relies on self check in. It is quite a big site. Affordably priced. There is wifi but it was not reliable most times. The kitchen is very basic. Toilets and showers are okay. Go early for a spot as spaces get filled quite quickly (perhaps because of the popular area but limited camping spots).

On arrival we were left to our own devices to choose a site and leave cash in a bag for someone to collect later. We had to go for a walk through the property and choose our own site then hope someone else hadn't chosen the same site. Old and broken bits of furniture in some of the sites. It didn't present well at all. We left thankfully without bothering to check in and used another park nearby.

This is a great spot for campervanners. They have really made an effort to provide all the facilities needed and put thought into each site while keeping the cost very reasonable. Much much better than what was effectively a very expensive car park with facilities in Queenstown.

Nice place. Openair kitchen (just roove, no walls). Big minus - they charge for 0 years old babies the same price as for adults (17$). Better you'll go to the neigbour camping where you get much more for less: Spa Pool, Sauna, very nice kitchen with living room. Clean BBQ place with playground. Friendly staff.
