Really friendly team, easy check in, lovely site with pretty views over the river! The friendly goat was a cute little highlight in the morning. Thank you for having us! Would definitely recommend.
We paid $16 each ($32 total) for a powered site.

Great camping facilities. Had the kitchen to ourselves and enjoyed the warmth of the lounge before retreating to the camper for the night. Owner was very pleasant.

Great spot, good facilities. Plenty of space and not too hard to find a flat spot for a tent. The kitchen can be a little cozy at peak times, but was perfectly tolerable. There are also BBQs and plenty of space outside.
Dispite being close to the highway, road noise was minimal.
With no significant roads inside the camp, I was happy for my 3yo to go between the toilet, tent, and kitchen unattended.
The river was warm and had a good swimming hole as well as areas suitable for small children to paddle. There was also a trampoline and a few other things to play on.
Take a torch, it's dark at night.

Used this spot to go see the boulders and the penguin colony.
Nice large grounds, all grass.
Very friendly welcome and no nonsense interaction.
Clean facilities, large kitchen, good WiFi.

Plus: alpacas, sheep and Angus beef to greet the kids and mentally young.

Would stay again.

I have had the pleasure of staying at this idilic holiday park. The owners are friendly and kind. You will be able to feed the hand-reared animals. Wake up to the bellbirds, tuis and other birds fluttering around singing their songs. The facilities are clean and comfortable. Breakfast by the river is magicical way to start your day. Absolute value for your dollar.
