Camp Reviews

Just had 10 of the most fantastic days ever at this camping ground. The hosts bend over backwards to help. Always clean and well presented. Will be staying here again. I recommend this camp to anyone wanting a true Kiwi camping experience the way it used to be.

What fantastic hosts Alan and Chris are. Great camping ground, clean and well presented. Nothing was a problem to them, pity more camps are not like this. Cheep at double the price.
