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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Had a great stay over Easter period with family and friends. Very clean park, helpful staff, decent people around the park. Kids love the playgrounds and enjoy biking around the park. Quite full over Easter break but was real quite at night time. Good quality sleep. 10/10 for sure.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment on your stay with us. We are so happy to hear you and your family had a great stay. We aim to be as family friendly as we can be from the team here and their interaction with you to the playground facilities and Jumping pillow (which we still believe is the best piece of equipment around). We look forward to seeing you again.

The lady at reception is so kind. You might randomly catch the owner of the park, and you will have a nice little talk. There is a cute cat around, and she will ask you to pet. The people in the public area are friendly. All of those will make the stay relaxing.

Hi. Thank you for leaving a wonderful comment on your stay with us. We are so pleased to hear you had a restful and peaceful weekend breakaway. We are very fortunate to be in this great location so close to the shops and our beautiful Caroline Bay. And yet it is so quiet in the camp. We hope to see you again.

This is my first time staying in a top 10 caravan park, it was great I had a chalet with a queen size bed plus a set of bunks if needed. Kitchen area, table and chairs, and large bathroom. It was very clean and the grounds are well kept. The staff were helpful and friendly. Helping me get my luggage to and from the chalet was thoughtful and very helpful. The laundry area for the park was clean. Transport via My Way at the gate to anywhere in Timaru. Will post photos later
