“Lovely setting”
Reviewed 12 January 2012

This was our first time at Larchview and the setting was lovely. The camp facilities were cleaned to a very high standard. With regards to dogs (the other review) we didn't have a dog but there were lots of other dogs at the camp ground so maybe the CM had a change of heart. while we enjoyed the location for the access to mountain biking in the forest (excellent) and the swimming dam was a fun swim for our daughter we found that the facilities were too small. We became frustrated with the lack of fridge space and the cooking and eating area was too cramped and people were sidestepping others all the time. The recreation area (a tv and chairs) was in the same small building as the cooking facilities and was unusable during peak times as you counldn't hear anything on the tv due to the noise from the cooking area and the door has been put on a spring which means everytime someone went in or out the door banged really loudly and maked it impossible to use the area for reading or relaxing. When we were there the camp ground wasn't full which made it a bit easier with the noise and lack of facilities, it would be worse a peak camping times.

On a side note - the Black Forest Cafe has delicious food and a really nice atmosphere. would def recommend it and is only a few minute walk from the camp ground

Reviewed 2 December 2011

This looked to be quite a nice tourist camp, however shortly after we arrived and had unpacked our car, the 'camp manager's' children came over to pat our 'very friendly dog' who was sitting on my wifes knee. We had previously arranged to have the dog stay. The 'CM' then arrived and started to berate his children in rather a loud and forceful manner. even though my wife tried to assure him all was ok. Having finished with them he turned his attention to us and in a loud and very rude and abusve manner, advised us of what the rules were regarding dogs staying at the camp, which I must say left us somewhat stunned.The whole camp would have heard us being berated(yelled at) "What did i tell you about the dog?" Needless to say we immediately packed up and moved on to the Ranfurly Camp where the reception was outstanding. My advice is if you have children or a dog, find somewhere else to stay. The manager needs to change the rules pertaining to dogs as he makes it almost impossible to to keep a dog in this camp.

Reviews are always welcome, bad or good. Children and Dogs are welcome at the park with prior arrangement. This this case my boys were ment to be at home doing home work and were being called back to do the same. Nothing directed at you or your dog. If I recall your dog was running about not on a lead, so you were ask politely to place your dog on one. We ask for the lead as if your dog was to mess the park you would not know we're to clean it up from.
