We were very impressed. Stayed in a cabin but looked around the full site. Grounds beautifully maintained. Everything clean and tidy. Couldn't fault it. Staff friendly and helpful. Top marks thank you. Paula (Rotorua)

Stayed in a camper on an unpowered site. Price seemed a little steep, but the facilities are great; all very clean, nice hot showers, BBQ, laundry, etc. Then there's the location; Russell is a delightful town, with great restaurants and lots to do on the water. Wished we could have stayed longer... but we've got a lot of NZ to...

BBQ, kitchen, TV lounge, laundry, super clean showers and fish cleaning area the facilities can not be faulted. We camped for two nights and with easy access to Russell and Long beach (stunning morning swim) it is a great spot, worth recommending but you pay for the privilege even with a no powered tent spot!

We stayed in a dozen sites while touring North Island by Campervan. Russell had got the best beach - Long Beach - and a good campsite. Our only gripe was that it is on a steep hillside which meant a climb from the campervan on its powered site up to the communal facilities. There were only two sites we used...

Hi Brian. Thanks for the review. The steps up/down to the amenities are a bit of work, but on the bright side it helps to work off all the amazing food eaten at the Russell restaurants! It's also a trade-off for the great views on offer from our hillside aspect :)

We had a deluxe powered site and it was worth the extra, fantastic views and a degree of privacy. The staff are what makes this site the best, nothing is too much trouble. The manager and his partner (who may well have had her baby by now so congratulations) take pride in the cleanliness and order on the site. The...

this our 3rd visit and we love it here, a fab location and all the facilities are what you would expect from a top 10 site. The staff are friendly and helpful and everything is clean and tidy. We like one of the delux campervan sites up on the top road with a great view of the bay

Completely loved it here, everything about the place really is a ten out of ten. The grounds are wonderfully maintained, the accommodation is very homely and the staff are very friendly. The location makes it an ideal place for exploring the wonderful Russell. It you are silent and still you might just hear a kiwi or two.

This site is right on the edge of the small town, an easy ten minute walk to all the sights. All amenities were very clean and plenty of them. Neil in the reception was extremely helpful, thank you. Would recommend to any camper looking for a site in the area.

This is probably the best holiday park in which we stayed during seven weeks on the North and South Islands. The setting is magnificent, the rooms (we had a studio) were superb, down to some really refined details, to say nothing of the view, and the people were first class. We had a unit that had a commanding view of...

Stayed here for the last few days of our holiday. Really enjoyed the site. All the facilities are very clean and well cared for. Short walk down into town. Views from the deluxe sites are well worth it.
