I've toured around New Zealand now for almost 4 months, I've been all over the North Island and all over the west coast of the South Island. This place has got to be the worst Top 10 I've visited yet. It should be kicked out of the top 10 brand because it's not what you'd expect when you pay a premium for the top 10 parks. Men and Womens showers and toilets are run down. A grand total of 2 showers for the men and 2 for the women for the ENTIRE park. There's waterpipes in the toilet mended from leaks with masking tape, there's hooks broken off one of the doors of the mens shower. The other shower has two hooks on the back of the door but each hook is of a different style - everywhere you look this campsite is just a hotch potch job. The kitchen is small and has no cupboards .. there is communal frying pans and pots but since there's no cupboards this stuff is just strewn all over the place. There's only IAC internet available and for the majority of my stay it didn't work (it wasn't user error it simply didn't work .. I tried on two phones as well as a laptop AND ipad). The powered site plots around the tent grounds are very poorly marked and not level at all. Whilst staying on one rainy night we had people park between our site and the site next to us (i.e. inbetween two marked sites)... that same night another person squeezed in to the site beside us - so basically 4 separate groups of people squeezed in to 2 "marked" sites. Were they meant to be there? I don't know but I wouldn't blame them because most of the plot numbered signs are barely legible. Even thou the sites are grassy the quality of the grass is very poor - all the grass is burnt/dead so it ends up coming in to your van/tent. It gets very muddy here if it's raining. It's also pretty far (around 3-4km) from Wanaka town centre. You're much better off going to the lakeview campgrounds.. better location ,better facilities and cheaper too, even if you're a top ten member! I stupidly booked this place for 2 nights running.. waiting for our 2nd night to run out now so we can move elsewhere because this place just isn't worth it. We should have known this place was going to be a bad apple when we saw the broken down Top 10 vehicle just inside the main entrance - it looks like it hasn't moved in years. This campsite is a disgrace to the top 10 brand. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
