“Definitely one of the top 3 holiday parks in NZ!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Awesome holiday park, superclean facilities, good range of sleeping options. But the best part is of course "The Barn", the common area with fully equipped and spacious kitchen, nice dining tables, sofas with blankets, big flat screen tv, board games. Very homely atmosphere and a plus is the environmental friendly policy throughout the park! Invercargill city centre is just 10 minutes drive away.

We stayed at the holiday park around March. The host of the holiday park, Gary and Karen are so lovely that they provide all of cooking utensils, free bbq etc which is so convenient for us as a backpacker. We enjoyed the bbq there so much! Besides that, the host let us get close to the farm animals, the sheeps and alpacas. It's my first time to feed the animals and i enjoyed it so much! It was a great stay for me, clean room with excellent service and reasonable price! Will definitely stay there again when I go Invercargill.

We were not expecting to find such a good holiday park in the south of the NZ mainland nor for the pleasant day and night of weather which was considerably more pleasant than further north. A big plus is that the place is very clean and well kept, though this time we used a RV van so I can not speak about the bedding and related. The facility has great hot showers with lots of pressure. There is a good laundromat room. The people are very helpful and friendly. It is not very far to visit a number of other attractions. Thumbs up for this place!

Room Tip: Excellent spot to visit travelling in a RV Camper situation.

Highly recommend this kiwi park. It is deffinately the best kiwi park in NZ! If u r looking for a place to stay in Invercargil, do not hesitate to choose it. The Barn (kitchen, tv, wc, etc.) is lovely - veeeeery clean and tidy, lovely homely feeling, everything in the kitchen is new + plenty of cups, plates, pans, u name it... The whole camping ground is well kept. Showers worked perfectly. Proper wc paper :)
We loved it.
After 3 mounths spent camping this site was like fresh air for us... everything was working! Everything was trouble free...
Lovely hosts!!!

Only stayed for one night because had to continue journey and was sorry we didn't stayed longer. Beautiful place in the morning, so calm with the barn and landscape. We came with camper vans so can't say much about the rooms provided but the camping facility is great. Hot shower, toilets, kitchen and laundry available for use. A very quiet area.

Room Tip: stay and enjoy the scene for a day.

We found this holiday park to be one of the nicest we stayed in during our 7 weeks travelling around New Zealand. The kitchen and barn were one of the nicest and cleanest. Service was fantastic! Only flaw was that the wireless Internet signal at the park is quite weak and keeps dropping off.

Room Tip: Only down side is that it in next to a main road with heavy trucks passing noisily during the early...
