Address:Timaru Top 10 Holiday Park, 154 Selwyn Street, Timaru, New Zealand, South Canterbury, South Island
In the middle of suburbia, and only a short walk to the nearby supermarket, this surprisingly spacious campground has an air of tranquillity. This is a large camp broken into small camping areas, all well supplied with large shade trees. Of the 150 sites most have power and some have waste disposal, there are also extra-large sites for the bigger vehicles. A modern purpose-built block with kitchen/dining facilities, consisting of full stoves, ceramic cooktops and a fridge/freezer. There are modern toilets and showers in this building and a paraplegic/family unit with shub and shower, underfloor heating throughout. The laundry is large with auto equipment and has been recently renovated. Plenty of additional facilities are provided in the busy season, all are immaculately presented and maintained. The children can be kept busy on the challenging playground equipment, the jumping pillow or have a go on a pedal cart. No visit to Timaru would be complete without a trip to Caroline Bay which is within walking distance. Gordon and Alison Collister are your lovely hosts and they provide free wifi as well as a Spark hotspot. Tent Sites are $39 for two, or with power $43 for two, $18 extras, $10 child.
