Real satisfied. Got everything. Nice kitchen, terass and common room. There's a fridge and a freezer you can use. Much space in the kitchen. 2 large stoves and ovens. Nice campingspots. Either just by the river, or in the middle of the camping. Internet, 100 mb free, then real good prices for more. About 10 minutes from town centre. Real...

The whole site was tidy and well managed and all the facilities were kept clean and tidy. The individual sites were very spacious and many had views of the river, which was lovely. The entire staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and were happy to recommend local restaurants and places of interest to visit. We stayed there...

After two really enjoyable visits in this past month I want other travellers to know this is a great spot to stop off as you travel up or down the North Island.

This delightful site is some 6 kms out of Wanganui and is quiet and peaceful as a result. The facilities are more than adequate, but if you require a restaurant or an attraction you will have to drive there. The owner/manager of the site was most helpful.

This was our first stay in a holiday park with our children. It was fantastic - hosts couldn't do enough for us and facilities were top notch. We stayed in a deluxe 2 bedroom motel and can't wait to do it all again. We bought a top 10 membership we were so impressed.

We jetboated 180km down the river and found our accomodation at the camp fantastic. The service from the owner was outstanding. Not only did he run us down to the local restaurant/bar he also took us to the shop to pick up supplies for our return trip up the river the following day. Ben went even further and dropped our...

We stayed at the Wanganui River Top 10 Holiday Park for one night in a 4 berth Motor-home. As with most campsites in New Zealand there is not much space to park a motor-home and care is need to ensure there are no mishaps. There is plenty of room in the park and enough room for young kids to have...

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night on a powered pitch in a camper van close to the river. On arrival the staff were friendly and helpful. We were given a pitch with a river view which was on gravel but there was grass all around us. Lots of ducks on the grass as well as a goat....
