The natural beauty of this area is priceless. Local dolphins always within view and nearby for a swim, penguins to view at dusk, fossilised forests from the jurassic area. the entire area is fantastic. The camping ground itself is laid out well due to the...More
A stunning destination to visit and although the actual little campsites are lovely with the large flaxes around each one to provide protection from the wind and give privacy the rest of the campground is sorely lacking.

The flax palm shrubbery is definitely unique. There are sites with power. However, the other amenities as mentioned are not desirable. Toilets are dark and eerie, the shower room looks very run down and dirty. There are many garbage and recycling bins.
The positives: the...More
Whilst the place has stunning views, close to the petrified forest, a beautiful beach, and a chance to see yellow eyed penguins and hectors dolphins, it doesn't offer much in the way of amenities. For $20.00 a night I would expect much better facilities. The...More
The peninsular campsite gives you the rural hideaway you need with stunning beaches.

Is the Curio Bay Camping Ground the same place as Curio Bay Holiday Park? We are looking to stay at the campground nearest to the penguins, the one that is part of the Catlins Community Trust (I think). We will be in a camper van. Do we need or can we get a reservation (Sat night March 4). Thank you! Kathy

Hi there, I'm sorry I missed your question. I actually have no idea about whether they are two separate grounds but we stayed at the one closest to the petrified Forest where the penguins are so assume they are the same. We didn't book but then I'm not sure whether it's busier for the camper vans - we were in a tent so just tried our luck and it worked out. Perhaps email them and query but it was a beautiful spot and I'd highly recommend it. Have a wonderful holiday :)
