I booked the dorm on a backpacking tour for a day hike on Coromandel. The Rocky Trial right next to the campsite is a great for 2-3 hours, but you can also do a greater hike to Thames via Tararu Tramping Track (about 6-8 hours). Facilities are rather old, but well maintained and very clean. The whole park is very... More

Thanks Neil for the great weekend. Stayed for two nights. Travelled up from Hawkes Bay for a fishing trip. Great place to fillet fish. Rooms were well looked after and heaps of space. Very affordable for the location. Well recommended accomodation for a family. Darren.

Gorgeous scenery, absolutely lovely people, helping us hopeless tourists from Aus. Spent half my time outside sitting in the gardens and near the creek, wonderful area and so relaxing. Would definitely come back again, thank you for your beautiful hospitality! X

Visited Friday 2nd September for one night, booked a powered site for a campervan. The site allocated was part of the carpark and not a proper site. We choose this park because it is part of the Kiwi Holidays Parks group, its just a pity we didn't check trip advisor first. The whole park is in urgent need of a... More

We bought the Holiday Park at the end of April and have been busily working upgrading. Where you had your campervan was not a carpark, it was a large concrete pad where we park campervans when it is wet. It is designed to comfortably accommodate 4 vans and has power outlets accordingly. Our kitchen and shower block are immaculately clean,... More

We stayed here recently as part of a sports group. We had a single bed unit. The price at $120 seemed steep for what was provided. We had no hot water for a morning shower and the unit was freezing cold as was the camp generally as it's located in a gully. We also used the oven to heat dinner... More

We have also tested the oven and it is working - other people have been using it with no problems. Im so sorry... More

This campground isn't great 'bang for bucks'. Costing a high $38 for two (powered site) per night, good facilities should be expected. Unfortunately, although maintained and clean, the toilet, shower, kitchen dining block is very tired. A rebuild seems overdue. The newer recreation/TV room is also quite a distance away, so difficult if you are wrangling young kids. On a... More

We are upgrading the park. As well as the games room, there is also a reading/tv room beside it. As well as the swimming pool there are two childrens playgrounds, mini putt, and a tennis court. We are close to the beach, and numerous bushwalks, so there is quite a bit to do in the park if one chooses. On... More

For new owners Neil seems OK but Cindy is a rude lady with a very bad attitude. When phoning her about the caravan I was wanting to purchase etc... and about the Park itself, she always had an excuse she was too busy and abruptly hung up a few times on me. She also made it sound like it is... More

It was pouring with rain when we arrived and dark so no outside lights made things slightly tricky to find power points and toilets and steps to get to them!
