Tried to book here over the phone so we could pay in person upon arrival. Called multiple times every day for a week before we were to arrive to try and arrange this yet the phone was never answered and now the one night we wanted to come has been sold out. We also sent emails and left messages on there answer phone but alas still nothing.

We just love Opoutere. We travel the world and my children offen comment that Opoutere is there favourite holiday each year. Super spot, stunning beach, the Forrest provides days of entertainment in the shade. Huts, bike jumps, jumping off the bridge, eeling, surfing. What more could you ask for. Great holiday once again. Thanks for having us.

We have been to Opoutere Coastal camping for two summers and we love it. The location is beautiful, a mix of forest and one of the most beautiful beaches in NZ. The grounds are a mix of different areas with a river running through them. The staff are wonderful, always smily and accomodatating. The campsite has a great vibe because of this. It’s one of our favourite places to camp and the coffee is top-notch too!
Cosy and remote place located in a picturesque valley with quick access to the beach. Good facilities.
No WiFi and little cell phone coverage to really get away from it all. Love it!

Beautifully located, secluded campground, nicely integrated into the natural features. We found all facilities to be in good and clean condition. The grassy, mainly level sites with spacious dimensions offer a good camping feeling, some feature a picknick bench.
A short walk to the sand beach with great views of the coast with its offshore islands and breaking waves, inviting to relax, take a bath (watch the current!), read, dream or make new friends (we shared the 5 km of beach with approximately 10 other people, 200 gulls and 25 oystercatchers); or a little longer walk to the bay, which, dependent on the tide, may be empty and provide for more views of the versatile local fauna. Some areas of the pine forest is closed because somebody poisoned the pine trees in support of the fauna that grew here prior, hence large branches may fall suddenly and unexpectedly. Interesting concept of conservation...
The keepers seem to take good care of the place, are super friendly and serve the best coffee of the world (or so), when the reception is open.
And one last recommendation: there is no fuel station within 20 km. Don’t arrive on reserve unless you like this sort of kick. We made it on the second to last drop...
Great campsite, tucked around a secluded bay with an incredible beach and pine forest. Very well maintained facilities, camp shop serves decent decent coffee, great for a few days to get Away from the crowds. Note local amenities are about half an hour away.

I really enjoyed this campsite. A young man and lady checked us in, very friendly people. The amenities and facilities are limited but we had a really nice walk through the bush that overlooked the lake and a bench seat that overlooked a beautiful beach. Its a quick walk through the pine trees to the beach. Paid $15pp and were allowed our pick of any site. Powered or unpowered. They have a chill out room where you can charge your stuff or watch TV. Showers $1 for 5 mins but they were nice showers. Zip for hot water in the kitchen. The kitchen is quite small and they only had 2 hotplates when we were there. Another lady was waiting to cook dinner too. They also have a small covered outdoor dining area. No wifi and very limited reception.

Great location as it's only a few minutes walk through some woods to the beach. Get up early and catch the sunrise across the Pacific. It's a very peaceful setting too. We used the BBQ; no grease fires to report! $15 per person per night for an unpowered site in March 2016.
