We had a lake view unit which was perfect for us, a family of 3 adults and 2 children. Loved the setting! The unit was spacious, clean and well appointed. We want to come back sometime to enjoy it again.

Lush vegetation and beautiful birdsong surround this location. Very clean, quiet. I really loved the heated floors in the shower room. This place set the standard for which I held all the other holiday parks where I stayed. Only 1 other came close to being as nice. I highly recommend this holiday park.

Earlier this year I facilitated a school holiday here and took up to 90 children. We stayed for 3 nights. What an amazing venue with super service. The camp was clean, tidy and very well looked after. We felt comfortable, valued and safe. It was situated in a near perfect location with a view to die for.

A lovely camp site with excellent facilities beside the blue lake. Full of bird sound. Not too far from Rotorua itself. You can camp, hook up your van or hire a chalet and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
