What a awesome place. You travel down a dirt road to get to a beautiful oasis of green lush rolling hills and the sounds of sheep... Cabins and beds are comfortable and the amenities are plentiful. Just a short walk down the track to the start of a track that leads you to the most amazing beach, its a 2klm...

We stayed here in December with some friends and absolutely loved it here. Such a lovely atmosphere in such a beautiful location. The staff are lovely and really helpful, the facilities are always really clean. we asked about the lack of kitchen utensils and the staff explained that guests kept taking them with them , so they now have boxes...

Unfortunately we did not receive any email regarding our request which mde us call and confirm in the end. Also, linen and bedding was provided, despite making a reservation for 6people they guy had to organize...

Compared to most holiday parks this one would be on the low side of mediocre. However you are not going to find a place closer to Wharariki beach, which has been the highlight of our trip so far. The campsites are small with no shade, and there are two retired horses that are free to roam about the camp. Having...

With 16$ per person we got: A tent site the size of a parking spot where only our minivan could fit, no space for chairs or table or whatsoever; No hot showers unless you pay $2/4 minutes and its only 3 showers for the whole campsite; Stinking and full of flies drop in toilets (DOC toilets are cleaner); Pack in...

Well set up holiday park in a stunning location but the price with the ad on for showers accompanied with the Complete lack of kitchen supplies not to mention the cheeky request to take all rubbish out just leaves a bad taste in the mouth. 18 dollars per person is a lot to ask for a patch of grass just...

Great spot right next to the 20min walk to the beach. Private room was small but good. The girl at check in was very friendly and bubbly. Shared kitchen was fine with no supplies so you had to bring all your own which was fine. The $2 for 4mins showers were good. The only thing we disliked were the long...

Interesting reading the other reviews. We are 55 year old kiwis and we loved this campground, one of the most memorable we've stayed at. We stayed in the cabins which are just lovely - much better than your usual "standard" campground cabin. Very private with outlook over a mature wetland area. The cooking facilities are a little limited and there...

This was the best place in the south island. Only a few minutes walk to wharariki beach. If you are there you should visit the farewell spit cafe for some good food and a coffe. Lovely people and Lea makes the best cakes!! I wish i could go back.

“We stayed in an RV campsite. This is a great location for its proximity to Wharariki Beach and Farewell Spit.”

“Ask to have a look at the beds before you check in. That way you might find something that doesn't wreck your back”

“As it is a very windy spot at Wharariki we would recommend a sheltered tent site. Down in front of the cabins by the flax bush is sheltered and private. Otherwise tent site 17B is quite sheltered.”
