St Pauls Trinity Pacific Church

Thanks so much for hosting our group from St Pauls Trinity Pacific Church. Our young people absolutely loved their time. The adults who were first timers to Ashley Gorge Holiday Park were amazed with the facilities.
My family are regulars at the Ashley Gorge having stayed in the dorms and camping in tents since 2007. We were all very impressed with the subtle changes you guys have made to improve the experience for campers. Our group are already planning our next visit to your place in the very near future.
Again on behalf of our young people and leaders, thanks for supporting us with our retreat!!


Thank you for having us over the holiday period. 

We love coming to Ashley Gorge!  You do a fantastic job of keeping the holiday park in such great condition, and the amenities clean and fresh.  It is the perfect spot for family camping, safe and friendly. 

The family travelling with us on our recent visit were impressed with the location and Holiday Park, it has even been suggested they travel back to Christchurch at the end of 2016 so another holiday at Ashley Gorge can be enjoyed. 

Again, thank you

I just wanted to write and say thank you. We had a wonderful time camping at the Ashley gorge holiday park, we found the park beautifully groomed and the facilities spotless. The setting is very picturesque, and our children played in the river for hour upon hour - what a wonderful place for the whole family to relax during the hot summers days.

I strongly recommend this camp and location for anyone wanting to stay in the Canterbury area - it's only an hour from Christchurch city, and I even managed to explore the numerous shops in nearby Oxford only 10 minutes away.



"Engineers Without Borders New Zealand" Retreat

"We recently held our national retreat at Ashley Gorge Holiday Park. The location was great, allowing our members from around the country and overseas to fly in to Christchurch and get there within 50 minutes. The place felt really secluded and was a great chance to give our team a taste of the South Island without having to drive for hours and hours. The facilities were tidy, well priced and being able to self cater meant we were able to keep costs down. All in all a great experience. Thanks guys!"
