Amazing place. Expensive but worth it. Pay extra for the view. Toilets and showers spotless. Lots of fun activities close by. Easy walk to town. Level sites with nice grass. Dump station and water at site. Nice sunsets. Would come back again for sure.

We stayed here for 2 nights at the start of our trip and it was great. I paid for the premium site on the hill which does indeed have fabulous views. The facilities were excellent - very clean and well maintained. Great playground for the children and a lovely location - a short walk into Russell and a slightly longer walk to Long Beach.
The only small quibble I have is that the sites weren’t big. They each had their own picnic table which was nice, but a little more space would have been nice.

Everything allright at this campground. Nice staff and good facilities. We just did not like the setting so much, there is one enourmous rectangular field. That makes it feel quite massive and not cozy.

Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the site at the bottom of the park Bert. Maybe, if you return to see us, take one at the top. We promise you'll love it ;)

We loved Russell and the Bay of Islands so much we stayed three nights and really enjoyed this ground. Like other reviewers, we paid extra for a site at the top with a view which was lovely. The staff here were all awesome - friendly, interested in what we did each day, gave us really great advice and information. The facilities were clean, but I never enjoy the timed showers like they have here and quite frankly for the price of the site it was unexpected and not appreciated. Also the kitchen, while clean, had a very odd smell. Our kids enjoyed the play facilities. It is a short walk into the township. Would stay again but really hope they change the showers!

Russell TOP 10 Holiday Park responds:

Hello Scooper, unfortunately, the shower times are here to stay. Russell is regularly low on water and this way we are doing our bit to preserve what there is and ensure the shower lines are nice and quick during our peak periods. Sorry you don't like them, however our intentions are pure and good. We're pleased you enjoyed your stay regardless of your negative shower experience and hope you'll come back and stay with us again soon. We look forward to welcoming you.

Fabulous park - we paid the extra for the sites on the hill and thought it was well worth it - the view is amazing. Hands down the cleanest amenities I’ve seen anywhere and nice touches like real hand towels (not paper or air) and hairdryers. Great location to walk into town and wharf.

We booked one of the sites with view. That was amazing. Pros: Walking distance to beach and town, good equipped kitchen, helpful staff. Cons: only 2 washers on duty, all others were out of order. We had issues to do our laundry. In my opinion not acceptable for a premium site during high season.
