We booked a Deluxe cabin and it was great, clean, tidy, nice fresh linen and great facilities. Good hot showers in a nice clean shared bathroom area, BBQ's were clean. Shared kitchen area was in very good order and had lots of stuff to borrow if you didn't have your own.

Boring 70's style cabins Only stayed here as other places were booked. There's no excitement, nothing to do The maintenance man is very annoying sticks his nose in your business when you try to relax, and is mowing the lawns 24/7 so a lot of noise going on. You have to pay for everything, to use the oven, to use...

How could you possibly publish comments like this? According to one of your other reviews you are a resident of Taupo yourself and you seem to take pleasure in trashing the places you stay at and the restaurants you dine in. You are doing Taupo, its accommodation and its eateries a huge disservice by discouraging others from visiting our town....

We stayed here overnight in our camper van and it was a half hour walk to the lake, which was fine, with shops for rations along the way. Camp has lots of space and the shower block was immaculate with nice strong showers. Great kitchen facility with plenty of sinks for washing up.

We’ve stayed in standard and deluxe cabins here every year for the past 10 years, bringing running teams for an annual sports event. Always friendly and clean, plenty of hot water, lovely outdoor undercover BBQ area for large groups (and small). Grounds always neat and tidy. Quiet, and just 5 minutes’ drive to centre of Taupo. We notice that the...

Actually we booked for 3 Nights, but once we arrived my wife thought to stay one night longer. So I went to the Reception to pay for. It is a clean Park, the Owner is friendly like all of the staff I got in contact. We did like to have our BBQ. The Grills are very tidy. We felt very...

We were very happy with our 2 night stay - the cabin was great - well appointed and clean. We where in Taupo for Wanderlust so it was close to the resort and close to town as well. Has made us reconsider the need to book motels / hotels at twice the price.
