Jenny • 24th Sep, 2011We came across this park be accident and it was one of the nicest things to happen to us whilst touring the North Island. There were 8 of us in 4 campervans and to find a place that was so welcoming, great fun encouraged by the owners and folks what about the pets. Julia the Pig. Des the dog and ofcourse the girls (chooks) who produced fresh eggs for our breakfast at a very very good price. I cannot recommend this to enough people I hope it never changes very much or looses the that feel of belonging when you arrive and all during your stay.
Brad Pepping • 9th Aug, 2011I have had the pleasure of staying at the Taumarunui Holiday Park numerous times and have always had a great time. The facilities are great and the hosts are always warm and welcoming. We stay here because it is some of the best fishing in the country and we are never disappointed. There is always plenty to do for the adventurous and will be sure to come back time and time again. Thanks Phil and Helen.

Put this on your list of places to stay
Sue J • 4th Jul, 2011Great hosts - Helene and Phil are a friendly, helpful couple and, for the short time they have been hosting this camp, have put a lot of effort into making everything spick and span. The showers are marvellous - hot and strong. Their pets - Bob the cat, Des the dog, and Julia the Kunikuni pig are just as friendly as their owners. I`m heading South but intend to come back on the way home to see the continuing improvements that they are hoping to achieve. Go see for yourselves and enjoy.

Dutchie6 • 25th May, 2011This is the place you want to stay at. The owners, Phil and Helene, are lovely people, the facilities are very nice and clean. Hot showers, fully equiped kitchen and brand new cabins. As I was on my bike, Phil took me to a certain place down the road to show me the glow worms. Thanks Phil and Helene!
Highly Recommended Holiday Park
Toby George • 23rd May, 2011I`ve stayed at the Taumarunui Holiday Park quite a few times over the past few years. I go there as it`s really well located for trout fishing a number of nearby rivers - especially the Whanganui and Whakapapa rivers. The setting and accommodation is excellent and I think I`ve stayed in all the various units on the site. The park-like setting is very peaceful and picturesque. The amenities are very good - they`ve got everything you need. I was probably a bit nervous when there was a change of owners last year, but the new owners Phil and Helene are very friendly and helpful. Already they`re making little improvements and upgrades to the accommodation, which is great. So I`ll definitely be staying here again and again - I love it! Thanks Phil and Helene and keep doing the great job you`re doing!
