We arrived with our brand new caravan and from the moment we arrived till we left we were in paradise. Staff helpful and Ben was an angel helping us with caravan. Our new home from home. Take the time to chill and relax while the river flows by.

We only had one night here but would have loved to stay longer. We will be back as we want to explore Whanganui instead off just passing through all the time. We had just come back from a month in The Nelson Abel Tasman area with our Caravan Kayak & Bikes. SO why no do it closer to home as...

We stayed three nights in a powered site for our little tent, placed at our request sufficiently away from RVs and their noisy sliding doors. The kitchen was always clean, facilities excellent (down to USB ports for phone charging in good supply) and cooking equipment available for all of our needs. The showers and toilets were clean and amazingly, they...

Fantastically run campsite. Staff helpful when asked, yet unobtrusive in doing the things that need doing. One of the best-run places we've stayed at. Great amenities, lovely position by the river, good place to explore the Whanganui area from.

One of the best top10 campsites we have stayed at. We were there the same time as Wellington college rowing club and we had no issues. Boys extremely well behaved. Only downside was the staff took up the WHOLE kitchen and left their food prep all over the counters when they weren't using it. Great pool, great location and staff...
