Great place to stay and Jeannie and her team made us very welcome with good tips on where to visit and eat. The self contained unit was of a high standard, very clean, comfortable and well appointed. Liked the layout of the site alongside the river and enjoyed the aviary feature with Captain and his friends. We found some good...

We were in deluxe self contained unit. The unit was great. All boxes ticked. Level of cleanliness was high and over condition of property was good. Really loved the layout of the park. The playgrounds, jumping pillow, trampoline, game room, and the trikes made a wonderful experience for the little kids.

This holiday park is located about a 10 min drive from the town alongside a river. Very nice if you want a quieter stay. Check in was very slow, but I was told it was because their system was being slow. The staff were very nice and polite though and promptly got me a wonderful powered site facing the river....

Thanks for taking the time to post this review. It's always nice for us to hear when guests have enjoyed their stay and appreciated our park facilities. We could not be more sorry for the impact the update to our reservation system on your check-in. We were told by our supplier that following the update the system was still fit...

We had a lovely site on the river. We awoke to a flat tire on our rented caravan. We called AA for assistance and they wanted $150 to come to the campground and have a look and/or change the tire. The man on duty at the campground pumped up the tire for us and sent us to a friend who...

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...

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.
