We arrived here , while touring N.Z. in a motorhome ,without booking and hoped we could get in, as it had good reviews. It certainly deserves the good reviews. The lovely South African owners, William and Colleen, were so friendly and helpful. William never seems to stop working to improve the site! The site has some lovely mature trees for...

We booked this last minute and the owner was exceptionally helpful. The site is very pleasant. Could do with a little modernising in areas and the road that goes passed the site can be noisy at night. The pitches further back in the site seemed to be more sheltered from the road noise. Great facilities for kids and it's not...

Stayed here for a couple of days in campervan in early January 2017. Site was clean, tidy and while very full it was not too noisy. Nice shady area to park in and very clean facilities. Out of town just far enough to be away from the hustle but not too far to go into town. Would definitely stay again....

Thank you for your kind review from your campervan stay with us. We appreciate your comments on the cleanliness and tidiness of our park. Many of our guests comment on our nearness to town while enjoying our rural setting. We did have an issue with the taps in our main kitchen and these will be replaced shortly.

Stayed in the stand alone one bedroom unit. Very neat and clean and tidy. The campground itself was not noisy or too full. It felt very relaxed. Great access to Acacia Bay and surrounds. Nice to stay out of the main town center. Very happy. would recommend and stay again!

Stayed from Dec 21st for 6 nights. Unit very spacious and well-equipped. Park was clean and tidy. Safe for kids. Bit surprised that unit wasn't serviced at all. Had to ask at the office for fresh towels after day 3 or 4. We certainly weren't expecting 5 star service but a toilet clean and fresh towels every 2 or 3...

This place is wonderful - surrounded in gum trees it has a park setting and is close to town and to Acacia Bay Beach.

Great location in terms of proximity to both Taupo town centre and Acacia Bay (canoe rental and bay). Facilities are plenty. One negative for us was the noise coming from the road, with a 100km speed limit. All tent and campervan sites are adjacent to the road an although not a state highway, still plenty of traffic passing during the...

Yes, we are very handy to the Taupo town centre and also to Acacia Bay with its wonderful swimming environment. We are located on Acacia Bay Road and a small number of our sites are adjacent to the park's front boundary fence. The remainder of the property is surrounded by farmland.
