Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed 3 nights in one of the Deluxe cabins. The cabin had its own toilet, a fridge, microwave, electric jug, plates/cuttlery etc, a table with chairs and bed (we supplied our own bedding and towels -although these are also able to be hired), with a sofa bed also, and tv. We used the shared shower facilities and shared kitchen for washing dishes.
We found the room very warm and cosy, well laid out with everything we needed.
There was some noise from the cabin that was joint with ours - but this was not overly bothersome.
All the facilities were very clean, and the grounds well kept. We found the communication and confirmation of booking easy. And the price was good. The holiday park is very close to town but considerably cheaper.
We would definitely stay here again.

As i walked into the bathrooms.....wow!
As i walked into the kitchen.......wow!
Never seen a campsite with such clean facilities,those little touches make so much difference.
The cloths in the bathroom to clean up after yourself,the flowers on the table in the kitchen,the worktops were spotless.
I hope everyone appreciates it and cleans up for the next person!
This is gold

We came with our holiday camper and were allocated a beautiful spacious spot with a picnic table next to it by some stunning old trees. The receptionist was extremely friendly and helpful and even offered us a couple of free feijoas from the campground hedges or some apples. We felt truly welcomed.
The site is extremely well-run, clean and tidy yet not stuffy.
The showers are hot and powerful.

Highly recommended!

Pretty poor service. Absolutely strict on their minimum 5 day summer holiday stay rule. Despite booking a month and a half before arrival and wanting to cancel several days after making the booking because of work commitments not allowing me to stay the full five days they refused to provide a refund despite admitting that it was their busy season and had high demand. They definitely put money ahead of service. Very average facilities but they were at least clean. The place had a funny smell, not sure what it was…

We had 2 powered sites, they were a great size with water also.
We stayed over the Supercars Weekend (to attend the racing) and while it was very busy, the facilities were alway clean and tidy.
Our host and the team were always friendly with smiles.

What a great place, very spacious campsites with each one having its own picnic table . Facilities were clean great recycling area and had a fun playground for our son to enjoy. Staff were very friendly and attentive. We enjoyed our stay so much we booked an extra night and would definitely stay again and recommend to others. Acacia Bay is a great spot with great swimming spots for the whole family.
Thanks for an enjoyable stay.

We were pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and great facilities provided by this affordable camp site. It is a great location
; although the road was a bit noisy at night. It has everything you need for an enjoyable camping experience and is close to town

We enjoyed our stay. Lovely park. The wind got up on the first night...our awning decided to come unpegged at 3am so was out fixing it. Second night as very calm. Beautiful day the next day so went to the Lake and shops. Amenities at the park were clean and tidy. Shower was lovely and warm. Kitchen was great and clean. Will be coming back again to stay 😊

We stayed for the weekend in our motorhome and were delighted with the peaceful, quiet atmosphere amongst the trees. The kitchen, showers and toilets are well maintained - clean and tidy. The price compared to other parks is a draw-card too. We will be back and we highly recommend Great Lake Holiday Park.

We loved this place! Clean, nice Team and you have plenty activities on your doorstep without beeing in the middle of the tourist Town. You can also do Rotorua right from here, as well as Mount Doom. We enjoyed and stayed two nights longer!
