This is a perfect campsite very peaceful, quite simple but has everything you need for a stay. Easy to find just SH2. V reasonable price $8 per person non-power site. Great showers and kitchen and laundry area look good, we didn't use them

Don’t worry that the drive takes u down some empty roads. Cheap and lovely little place, super rainy when we where there so camp ground wasn’t that filled. Nice big showers and equipped kitchen. Even home grown spices (leaves) and they came with free eggs in the morning. Really lovely.

The drive up takes you through a lesser suburb of this rural town. Don’t be discouraged as the campground is the absolute best non-commercial campground we have seen in 4 weeks of travelling through both islands!
On arrival just pick a spot settle in and relax the friendly grounds manager comes by in the evening to collect the fees.
The facilities are are top notch, good clean well lit showers and toilets (they even had linen towels), well equipped kitchen, laundry, games and book exchange, fresh water, powered sites, gas BBQ and everything spotless clean and well maintained. There are a few fire pits scattered around the campground, check with the manager if it’s oke to light them, in summer there could be a fire ban.
We had a great time around the campfire with the other guests roasting marshmallows and telling tall tales...
In short look no further, this is the absolute best you will find!!

This camp is one of our favourite sites in 40 years of Motorhomes travel. We can not say enough about the people who run the site they are the best 😃

By far the campground with the best value in NZ we have come across by now. The owners are just lovely and the facilities are all super clean as well. We can only stay one night but I wish we could stay longer. And always remember the price, which is 14 dollars for 2 adults unpowered!! I cant understand how you can give them any less than 10/10. They even provide all cooking stuff such as pots, cutlery and so on. Hot showers, for free! Although we met the couple that owns this place for just a few minutes I already wish them all the best!!😊
