Cheaper Park

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 13 Apr 2016
Stayed at this park (approx 15kms out of town) because of the beach however 20 min walk to get access to the beach. Lovely when we got to the beach however. Older park and facilities are adequate but average, with only couple of showers - one was wheelchair access which also had one of the 2 toilets available. Small bathroom and with only a small handful of vans there, bathroom was too small with a few people in there. Other than that, price was very reasonable and the lady who checked us in was very, very friendly and efficient. They had a small store and freezer so we were able to purchase our dinner from their stock which saved us having to drive back into the town. Kitchen was well equipped and bbq was under cover and handy.

    We came here on our way from Fox Glacier to Wanaka, because of a recommendation in the Lonely Planet. I doubt that anyone of the LP writers ever saw this park. The facilities are limited and in terrible shape, the staff is unfriendly and unlike the "promise" of the holiday park's name, the next beach access is miles away.

    An old and tired site but with a new facilities block which is good. Plagued by sand flies so repellant is necessary. Off the beaten track and not in Haast. Beach is quite a walk along road and over a bridge. On road to Jackson Bay which is worth a visit. Internet slow and variable.

    The facility is unsuitable for camping. A male staff member refused to acknowledge our concerns It became clear that this guy was a bit dim as his responses were nonsense and he resorted to verbal abuse and physically threatening behaviour. I went to the Coummunity Constable the next day to report the verbal assault and threatening behaviour. The male staff member was unable to refute our concerns, so we left the facility. Stay away! The toilet facilities were out of commission and the place is run down. There are plenty of other better camping sites in the Haast area.

    We had a fantastic stay here. The owners were really friendly and extremely helpful. The bathrooms were clean. The kitchen/dining area was clean and really spacious but you need to take your own plates and cutlery etc. We loved the piano! It was great seeing everyone play it and the kids loved it too. The camp had lots of room and was safe for kids to run around in. There are great mountain views from the campsite, the beach is 20min walk away. It is the west coast, so make sure you take tropical strength insect repellent. If you aren’t good with bugs then a cabin is a good option. Friends of ours got a cabin instead of camping and they thought it was very comfortable, good value and they didn’t get attacked by sandflies so much. There’s lots to do and see in the area and we loved it – will definitely go back, already planning the next trip!

    Quite a different perspective to offer from previous reviews. The hosts were very friendly to us, over the phone as well as in person. We booked on night and two days later came back for another. This place is a little far out from Haast, be patient you'll get there eventually. And it's another long drive to Jackson bay but worth it.
    We had a cabin which has its own kitchen area, we'll equipped with pots, pans and everything you need. The cabin was set up for 4 ppl, we were only two and it was quite spacious. It has it's Charme, may originate from the 60/70s and has had a few touch ups. Bathrooms are nothing special but work their magic of a hot shower with decent pressure. We liked it and would come back. Especially compared to other cabins we had for similar or higher prices this was a good deal. Two minor suggestions, there a few spiderwebs and the TV is hanging a bit low closely to the outlet, watch your head when you get up!
