Fantastically run campsite. Staff helpful when asked, yet unobtrusive in doing the things that need doing. One of the best-run places we've stayed at. Great amenities, lovely position by the river, good place to explore the Whanganui area from.

One of the best top10 campsites we have stayed at. We were there the same time as Wellington college rowing club and we had no issues. Boys extremely well behaved. Only downside was the staff took up the WHOLE kitchen and left their food prep all over the counters when they weren't using it. Great pool, great location and staff...

It is in a very convenient position for exploring the region ( which is why we chose it ). Unfortunately while we were there we had problems with our motorhome...

We stayed here with 5 other families and we all had a ball. The staff are very friendly and always helped us out with every query or request. The facilities are excellent. I highly recommend this for camping or glamping.

We stayed in a cabin that fit the whole family. It was clean, well presented and worked really well for our family of five. The kids loved the play areas and the pool. Nice family feel to the whole park, helpful staff, we will definitely stay again.

I had a powered site. Fantastic hosts who are very friendly and helpful. Excellent clean and tidy amenities (even music in the ablution block) and grounds. This would be one of the best ones I have stayed at. Free showers. I would highly recommend this to any traveller. You certainly won't be disappointed.

We stayed at the holiday park for 2 nights. I booked a self-contained unit for me and my 2 children and I must say that out of all the places we've stayed at during our trip around nz this one has a special place in my heart. The unit was clean, warm, well equipped and the beds were very comfortable....
