An excellent park that has all the amenities that you can think of. There is a place to do a bbq, to clean fish, a dispenser for boiling hot water etc etc.
The place is quite large and the staff make sure everyone has their private space. It costs 38 NZD for a powered site, 7 NZD for 24hr WiFi (coverage everywhere). For 36 NZD (quite cheap) you can hire a bike for a day and cycle round lake Taupo, then over to Huka Falls only to soak in hot water by the river in the evening.
The place was kept very clean and we have enjoyed our stay very much.
