Great location as you’re located in Whakapapa and can start several walks right from there. Super friendly staff at check in, very welcoming and gave great advice for where to eat and the coffee cart hours the following day. Campsite area and parking is close to the entrance so easy to walk in and out. Facilities very clean and close to the camping area too. A bit more expensive compared to DOC campsites, but the location and facilities were worth the extra buck. Would definitely stay again.

Amazing place to stay with a beautiful view to the mountain and a stream crossing the park to have nice relax afternoon while enjoying the sound of the water going through. However, by far the best of this holiday park is its staff members hospitality and great service. I was unfortunate enough to lose my card and phone while doing the tongariro crossing and Tania help me with everything to sort cash and all that I need it to enjoy my stay and make it back home in one piece :). 100% recommended and surely will come back again in the future!

Really enjoyed staying here though the spaces and roads were a bit tight, it was quiet when we were here but I imagine at peak season, all those big campers on the narrow roads could be stressful. Fresh water house is by the dumping site, not by each individual site, but that helps keep the area more natural and I imagine helps keep costs down. We could hear the river from our spot (11) but if you have a relatively small van I recommend site 19, which has a nice open view down to the river, without being right next to the facilities. Facilities were good, there is a bath if required or plenty of showers, although they are built for short people, if you're 5'8 or under you'll be fine. I'm 6ft and had to bend to get under the shower but I managed, water pressure is obviously never great in campsites but wasnt the worst and the hot water was hot!

Location to whakapapa ski fields is its greatest asset. Excellent kitchen facilities. Bathrooms are clean and tidy, there is a drying room for ski gear. Internet is excellent throughout the camp. Small shop at reception. Not a lot for kids to do however no play ground etc
