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.

Very nice campsite with good facilities and cheap.

Cost (2p, non-powered): $15 (+$1 per 4minute shower)
Location: Close to a road/railway line but neither is particularly busy. Nice enough views over fields but not what you'd call stunning
Facilities: Kitchen (a few facilities) with big communal dining area, showers, washer/dryer, tennis courts
Value: 10/10
Sandflies: Nah
X-Factor: Nah
Other: There's a cat which earns a bonus point from me!

Really nice campsite and caretaker, lit up with Christmas decorations - very nice wooden lodge with kitchen and clean toilets, only downside is lots of moths and cockroaches outside the bathroom at night because of the lights but they weren’t inside. Really good value for money also, $25 for 4 adults unpowered

Lovely small site. Very friendly and welcoming. The fairy lights at night meant it was easy to negotiate in the dark. Beautiful views onto open countryside, from the rear of the pitch. A very enjoyable stay. Would certainly recommend.
