Usually not a big fan of the caravan & camping experience, but I must say that the facilities and the rooms were very clean. It almost looked as if it had opened a few weeks ago. Warm showers, clean bathrooms at all time, very nice view, and well maintained property. TIP: it's worth asking for the rooms with linen. It...

We stayed for two nights here. It's in a great spot for the town and the Whale watch trips. Dolphin experience is just around the coast towards the peninsula. Everything is pretty new and clean but what makes this a great site are the staff. Ed & Leah take a bow, super friendly & very very helpful.

Great people. They looked after us after the earthquake on the 14th of November 2016. They looked after our car as well as all the road were closed, until we got back at Christmas time to get it. Also great cabins and tidy ground. They go out of there way to help.

Arrived with a large family tent and after a bit of looking and deciding we found a big tent site (there where lots). Very clean facilities with loads for families to do onsite, swimming pool, giant trampoline thing plus much more. Bike hire if needed as well. Interesting to watch the helicopter taking off and landing next door.

Just stayed the one night on this trip. Much quieter this time as no trains running. Good to see lots of clients at the camp - locals and overseas visitors. Friendly and efficient staff. Good value. Seemed to be lots of options for families.
