Great spot; we had a pitch where we could park our camper right by the lake. Stunning view. Facilities fairly basic, but clean and tidy. There's a little traffic noise, but being lake side ensured a great view that more than made up for this. Prices quite reasonable.

Enjoy our weekend stay in a family unit. Plenty of space with own cooking facilities. We enjoyed the lake front location and we're treated to a beautiful sunset and sunrise. Impressed at the little extras for kids including activity pack on arrival and a treasure hunt through park.

Great campsite , friendly staff. The facility's are always clean and tidy. The addition of the play ground makes it even better for the kiddos. There is plenty of space and is very peaceful. We love it so much we booked in for our next family holiday for next year.

On the way to Taupo we found this little gem of a holiday park right on the lake. It was away from the hussle and bussle but close enough to drive to one of the many restaurants in Taupo. We stayed in a self contained cottage for the night. The cottage was spotless and the beds were comfy. Next time...

The lovely campsite in Lake Taupo for my holiday with my family. All of my family love this campsite. I got #7 site. I think it the best view. We enjoyed all of the view at Lake Taupo. I hope i will go back this site again.

It is a fantastic spot with a great view over the lake. It has amazing and clean facilities! But most of all, the camping owner treated us like family! He is the real deal. Thank you for all the hospitality! We would go back here 10 out of 10 times!

We stay in the self-contained unit and it is a very well-equip and clean unit. The beds are comfy too. Our kids enjoyed their stay there very much. The location is superb; right in front of the beautiful Lake Taupo. Wished we have stayed a little bit longer.

Park facilities were pretty basic, where we were situated but the view of Lake Taupo made up for it. The main part of the park looked like the facilities were much better but they didn't have the views so when booking you will need to be clear which side of the park you want to have.
