I don't normally do reviews but wanted to for this campsite because it was such a great place to stay. We were in a campervan, the owners were really friendly, we got discounts we weren't expecting and even some food when the shop across the road was closed. They went out of their way for us and our 3 nights...

I took a cabin for one night. The cabin had a double and a single bed. The holiday park does not accept aa membership for stays. The cabin was well appointed sky tv, stove top microwave etc. There was a hard frost and I was cold also there were trains close by the cabin. The internet card wouldnt log on.

We stayed in June and it was very quiet, the lovely local park behind was stunning (see photos) will be stopping there again on our next trip. The kitchens were a sight to behold, so clean and tidy. Manager at the time was very helpful and friendly.

Originally only staying for one night but decided to stay for two. So handy to town and all the attractions. Staff are very friendly. Grounds are lovely and well kept. The child LOVED the jumping pillow (as did we...haha). Best bit was the super clean, modern bathrooms! Best I've seen at a campground. Definitely coming back.

We recently stayed at the Oamaru Top 10 holiday park in a camper. We found the park very quiet (winter) and practically had the kitchen and bathrooms to ourselves. The facilities were very clean and well run.

Really nice top 10 Park. The staff were really friendly - I had a really nice chat with the owner about the yellow eyed penguins and other birdlife. The facilities were mostly of a great standard (one of the shower blocks felt in need of some tlc) and the park as a whole is very clean and well maintained. Fairly...

Beautiful setting stayed one night in a cabin with ensuite. Very clean and tidy. Comfortable bed and pillows. New bathroom. Very warm my expectations of a cabin have been far exceeded. Best accommodation I have stayed at value for money wise. Would recommend this place to friends and family. Next time we would bring kids they would love it!

This place ticked all the boxes. The spaces for the vans were generous, midst a beautiful old tree lined park. The kitchens were big, functional and clean. The facilities were bright, warm and clean, the receptionist was friendly and helpful. The other thing about this Top 10 is that is conveniently located close to town so you can walk out...
