Beautiful, safe, and right off the main road, this camping ground provided my 4 girlfriends and I the perfect destination for the first stop in our camping adventure. When we ran into some troubles with our camper, the owner was quick and willing to help us solve all our issues.
Showers and bathrooms were very clean and well maintained.
Highly recommend this cozy campground!

Best campground of the trip so far! Amenities were super clean and freshly painted with flowers and the showers were super hot and only cost $1 for 4 minutes! Manager was lovely and at $15 for 2 people unpowered a night it was super serenic with snow capped mountains in the background.

Lovely little camping, cheap (20 nzd/night powered, 2 people), very friendly caretaker. We stayed 2 nights with a campervan and the caretaker made sure we had the same spot both nights. Hot shower 1$ for 4 min. Lovely, friendly big cat on premises. Would recommend.

Well this was really a good place. Clean
1$ the showers 15$ unpowered for 2 persons..... maybe not the “fancy” top 10 but in my eyes much better and sympathetic.
Quiet and sometimes a train.....but even that wasn’t disturbing our night rest.
