Great place and friendly host. Bring cash (you can get cash out from Challenge service station as you pass town). It was $25 for powered site for 2 people. Kitchen has toaster, kettle, microwave etc. Shower is $1 - very clean and great pressure. Would stay again!

Very friendly hosts, nice open spaces, and good bathroom/shower facilities. We didn’t use the kitchen. Powered site has water as well, so bonus! There is a public dump station just outside the gate, so that was very convenient. This was a very nice stop for us.

Great place to stay for a night! Super clean amenities, friendly care taker, and very cheap ($30 for 3 adults powered).

Stayed here overnight to break up a long drive and what a surprise! Payed $20 for a powered site for 2 people- cheapest you’ll get! Lovely well kept place with lots of space for all! Had clean toilets, warm showers, a kitchen, and even a playground! The owners were very lovely and had a lovely little dog too

This was the cutest little campground, it is so well maintained and has great friendly spirit! Well priced, clean showers and toilets - Showers are $1 for 4 minutes (must have NZ $1 coin). The kitchen area was a bit small for amount of people needing it. Cute common area to relax. No dumb station and no cooking facilities except microwave and toaster. Surrounded by gorgeous small town and scenery.
