Excellent place away from the hubbub of Rotorua. Lorraine and John went out of their way to help us rearrange accommodation for us during floods and road closures. Very clean and comfortable accommodation with marvellous bird sounds. Lovely place and people.

Beautiful lake views from the Tikitapu cabins, even better with the trampoline and swings outside the balcony. Great cabin space for kids, free kids dvds, games room and we loved the kayaking for the adults. Staff helped with all questions and we got fresh towels each day! A beautiful place to stay a short drive from Rotorua, definitely worth it...

We had 5 nights here. Lovely holiday park, spacious park, excellent common areas and across the road from the beautiful Blue Lake. Only a short drive into Rotorua. We stayed in a family unit as smaller units were not available. Very clean and well equipped, would have liked a hair dyer, otherwise everything you need. Lounge sofa in need of...

Beautiful spot, our group was accommodated so we could all be together. Staff were fantastic, not only with check in but with our car trouble & a missing child (not ours thankfully). Facilities were very clean and loved that everything we needed in kitchens was already there. Highly recommend.

Great service from Staff at checkin. Our 2 bedroom chalet was amazing. Great views over the lake and equipped with everything you would need. Afternoon wines on the balcony - beautiful. Thank you for your hospitality and great service. Would highly recommend to everyone.

As all the Top10 campsites, this one offers well equipped and very clean facilities. It is situated close to the Blue Lake and offers a lot of activities at and on the lake. Some of the campervan spots are separated by bushes which gives you a little privacy.

We stayed here for a night. It's directly at the lake. Clean toilets and showers. It's also a snack shack arround the corner to provide coffee breakfast or a snack! It's so close to the city but also so quiet. We liked it very much!

We stayed at the Blue Lakes for a couple of nights the lake is stunningly beautiful and we had lovely walk around the lake. The site was clean and tidy. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had trouble with our van and Brian could not have been more supportive in getting us back on the road.

For the most part, we enjoy staying at Top 10 parks throughout New Zealand. However, this park was not our favorite. It was the weekend and it was full. However there must have been at least twice as many small children as there were adults. Showers were always full with screaming kids and lazy parents, the toilets were rarely available...

Excellent facilities, lovely spacious powered pitches. Great views. We loved it here. Ticked all the boxes for us. Communal kitchens and showers very clean. Short drive to Rotorua. We loved it here. Two night stay late summer/early autumn.
