This is by far the best campsite in Christchurch. Facilities are clean and unlimited hot showers. The sites are big enough for 3 vans and even have a picnic table. The staff is incredibly helpful with any requests or inquiries. Price drops when you are staying longer than a week. I will visit again!

Spent our final night of 21 day holiday here. We were in a motorhome. The host was very friendly and made us feel welcome. The site was clean, well laid out with good facilities. Close to the airport but with the feeling of staying on a family site. Very popular. Highly recommended.

Location was convenient, as we arrived very late. Keys were availtable but to our surprise there were no towels in the rooms. Good low budget option but a few issues to iron out.

Only $100 for a chalet for the night, room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Was recommended by a family member. They even took me to the airport in my own car and looked after my car (no charge) until i got back from my holiday. There just isn't service around like this very often these days.
