My husband and I stayed here for one night in a non-powered tent site as part of a mid-winter break in Rotorua. The owner/managers were very friendly and helpful, the amenities were 5-star with outstanding cleanliness, the kitchen area has ovens, microwaves, sinks, and plenty of space to cook meals. Everything you could want from a holiday park is here.... More

This is our 3rd stay here, staff are so friendly and helpful. Park is amazing, everything is clean, fresh. Whilst we were staying there they were working on adding to the playground a plus if you have kids. So much better than the other top 10 in Rotorua as here you can't smell the sulphur.

Really Nice place, good bbq facilities, clean bathrooms and friendly staff would recommend this place. If your renting standard cabinet they provide basic amenities but do not provide blankets so keep one with you.

This park was lovely. Beautiful views of the lake. Facilities were very nice. Had a good playground and trampoline for young kids. As in all Top 10 parks, wifi was available and worked very quickly. Pretty good privacy from other sites which we appreciated. Would recommend.

As it was the bank holiday we wanted to stay out of Rotorua so we chose this park. The proximity to the beautiful lake was excellent and the scenery was gorgeous. The charge is far too much for what you provide. Showers are limited. Wifi is extra (and from what I heard patchy). No shelves in the toilet block so... More

Amazing vista out the front of the park of the Blue Lake. It is a bit of a drive out of Rotorua but it's well worth it. Basic accommodation which is expected.

We are lucky enough to be in an amazing part of the country. Unfortunately with that comes the challenge of internet. The whole area of Blue Lake, Lake Tarawera and Lake Okeraka has no servicing cell towers making it limited to what we can provide, especially around our Holiday Park which is surrounded by native bush and trees.
