We arrived at 5 pm on a Friday night after hiking the Round the Mountain track with some big days and tired legs. Toni was super friendly and we found the cabins perfect for our needs, facilities clean, heaps of cooking utensils and gear in the very large clean kitchen, showers hot, and grounds lovely. The next morning Tania cooked us a mean breakfast burger each! best burger I have had. Definitely try out the onsite food truck. Great coffees and chai too. We had a great stay and would definitely recommend and we will be back!

Stayed for two nights in our caravan and our family stayed in their tent. Sites are divided by bush which is lovely and great for privacy between sites. Our contact was with Tania who was very helpful and friendly. Camp is close walking distance from several walks which is great. Received a discount as NZMCA members too so we were happy campers and will definitely return.

The hosts Tania and Toni are so welcoming and friendly. There is such a choice - cabins, tent and caravan sites and then a dorm. I stayed in the dorm and there are lots of rooms sleeping up to 8 as toilets, showers and a nice TV and dining room(wharekai). Such nice people in the dorm and all happy and excited with their stay. I will definitely be back

Our Tramping Cub stayed at the Holiday Park prior to & after our attempt at the Tongariro Northern Circuit. Unfortunately the weather intervened & we were unable to complete the full circuit so arrived back at Whakapapa unexpectedly & with no booking. No Problem. We were quickly booked into the same Cabins as we had the first night. then enjoyed a lovely hot shower & back to the Holiday Park run Food Truck for one of the best Burgers you are ever likely to have. (Gluten Free options available) The whole place is fantastic. The cabins are a good size & clean. The kitchen & bathrooms, clean & well stocked. Everything is very efficiently run. Its a credit to Toni & Tania. The perfect place for a group stay.
