This was formerly a Top Ten Park and we had booked as that. Not quite what we expected, older style units were clean and roomy. There was a sports team of kids there who were quite noisy initially. Ideal for a one night stay but wouldn't want to spend a week there.

Thank brandy126

Thanks for staying with us. Sorry it was sports week in Nelson and there were teams everywhere. Hopefully you get to visit us again as we are usually a very quiet park. More

My partner and I stayed for 2 nights in one of their self contained cabins. It was very clean and well equipped and we were pleasantly surprised. The kitchenette had everything we needed including hotplate and electric fry pan as well as jug, toaster and microwave. The room itself had a table, a queen bed, bunks and a TV. The... More

A pleasant stay in this well-run, clean & well maintained site. Showers are hot, free and good pressure. Wifi works well. The sites are well spaced, and it's easy to find everything you need. The site is not in a pretty location & it's under the flight path of the local airport (day flights only). Shops etc. a short walk... More

We stayed for 2 nights on a powered site with the intention of using it as a base to travel to and from the Abel Tasman National Park. As with all the camp sites in New Zealand there is not much space when maneuvering the van about the site. We were allocated a particular pitch which was so tight I... More

Stayed 1 night on a power site. Large pitch. Very clean amenities and lots of hot water in the shower. Easy walk into Richmond and the mall. Very quiet spot. Small site but would recommend for a stopover.

We stayed overnight on a road trip of the South Island in an Ensuite Cabin. It was extremely clean & comfortable & we were thrilled with the service from the guy at reception. He gave us ideas of what to do/see in our short time in the area. Just out of town but I believe in a great area. A... More
