This place is a true Kiwi delight. Spacious, well equipped, clean and friendly. As a camping ground - its as good as it gets, and the owner is down-to-earth. Yes, its a little 'old school' - showers are coin-operated and the kitchen/recreation room are original but they are meticulously clean and well maintained. We stayed as we were in town for an MTB event, but we want to return just to hang out here again. Great camping ground that feels 'just right'.

Large area for relaxing and playing if you have kids. And lovely kitchen with enough equipment. you need to spend 50 cent for shower, but it is totally enough to take a hot shower in 50 cent. Friendly and kind host would happy to help you any questions if you ask kindly. We planed to stay here just one night, but change our mind after being here. We totally stay 8 nights! Love here!

This camping ground is as near perfect as it gets. The grass is beautifully manicured. Everything is neat and tidy and clean. The best part is that the cabins haven't been redecorated in decades by the look of them. To be honest it would spoil the wonderful atmosphere if they were "modernised" This is an honest place run by honest people who obviously care about their business and how it is perceived. To add to the pleasure, random dogs keep appearing from nowhere to nuzzle you or bark half heartedly. I can't explain why I liked this place so much. It just feels right.

This camping ground is really nice! Close Mount Hutt and the little town of Methven There is an atmosphere old fashion style, but has everything you need for your holiday.The bathrooms are very clean,the kitchen as well and with good equipment.There is a lovely game room perfect for kids and adults. And a good tennis court. We stayed with our campervan for one day, we had a great relaxing pause long the way,of our trip around Mackenzie country. Mark the owner, is really kind and smiley person. We'd happily recommend it. Carmen
