“Saved the best for last”
Reviewed 14 November 2013 via mobile

We are 2 days from completing our vacation in New Zealand and this is the last Top 10 we will stay in. It is a very clean, comfortable campsite and I love the drive through campsites. The facilities are first rate, modern, and well kept. Lots of trees throughout the campsite make it seem like we are in a park. The showers were great, clean, and with lots of hot water. The unisex bathrooms even have baths! Modern kitchens and good entertainment facilities. I highly recommend this site!

Stayed November 2013, travelled as a couple

Lovely title you put there, thank you very much. Great to hear you liked our large pull through sites, many of our sites also have water and waste options. We are glad you like all the trees. At the moment we have a major natural environment project on the go which is the restoration of the Waimataitai Stream, which borders the park. Over a 1000 native trees and shrubs have now been planted along the banks of the stream; once these are established, a walkway through this native bush area will be developed. The native bush has enhanced the bird life in the area and there are eels and even the occasional whitebait in the stream. Once again thank you for your review.

This is a very well-run park. The cabins and shared facilities are really clean, hosts are friendly and as helpful as possible, the big bouncy pillow keeps kids (of all ages!) amused for hours, and there's a supermarket within 5 mins walk. All good, we would definitely stay again.

Fantastic to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you for your review, we are glad you and the kids loved the jumping pillow, we also have fun bikes for the kids (of all ages) to hire and now have tickets for $1.00 OFF at the CBay swimming pool near by. We hope to see you again soon.

Stayed here for five days with a sports team of young boys. The management could not have been any more helpful, nothing seemed to much to ask. Facilities were clean and well maintained, great showers - not something you can say for many camps! Location is great with a supermarket a short walk away. Kids loved the huge bouncy thing and kept them entertained for hours.

From the moment we checked in we knew this was going to be a great place to stay. We stayed one night at a powered site and were still able to use all of the parks facilities. The communal bathrooms had heated floors, which was most appreciated during winter, and were lovely and clean. The kitchen/dining area was spotless, well lit and handy to us. The playground was well used by our children, they loved the flying fox and air pillow. Price was good for a Top 10. Would definately stay here again.

We Come to this park all the time. When we book they remember our names and which site we want, which is very important as makes you feel very welcome. The owners keep the grounds like a personal garden park, they always make out kids very welcome and always come and say hello to us. The facilities are totally immaculate and perfectly clean. The bouncy pillow and child friendly park our great to keep kids busy, nice and quiet for kids to blat around on there bikes or they have bikes you can use. We have been coming to this camp on and off for well over 25 years and it just keeps getting better all the time. It is very well priced for what it has to offer. We would like to that Gordon and the team for making our holidays very enjoyable. Ps our three kids when you ask where they want to go it is always timaru top ten . You always remember our little twins on there bikes and our seven year old as well. Thanks John and amy Crowe

Stayed in a 2-brm motel unit. Lovely cosy room and staff had turned heater on in advance of our arrival being a cold day and knowing we had an infant. Brilliant facilities (playground etc), close to supermarket & takeaways, would definitely stay again.

We stayed at Timaru which was our 5th camping site that we stayed at. I had to admit that the best thing was my daughter having a great time on the playgroud! It had great facilities. It is a good place to stay with a supermarket close by and walking distance to town. Who wants to go to Timaru again?
Well it would certanly be me!
