Very nice campground with a friendly owner, clean facilities and a large kitchen. Only electric cooking site so take you time. Oven and microwave available. You get wifi but only 100MB, install a firewall app and you'll be fine ;) quite big camping site, might be crowded.

Stayed 2 nights with small kids. Playground was fantastic, unit is small but has everything you need. 5 minutes drive from Picton which is a gorgeous town. Nice and quiet. Well kept grounds. Free wifi, hot showers.

Very nice and friendly place. We had a great site with bay views and the kids enjoyed the pool, trampoline and playground. Facilities were very clean, the camping was nice and quiet and wifi was provided. We planned to stay only one night, but booked another night. The location is great for exploring the sounds and wine yards.

Older place where a lot of locals stay for the weekend. Despite being dated the facilities were clean and the managers were really interesting and friendly. Great place to stay near the ferry. Has all the usual facilities for a holiday park.

Very friendly owner. Lots of funny and lovingly created signs posted all over the facilities. Toilets and showers are clean, and well maintained, albeit not very new. We were allowed to select a site on our own. Wifi is not free. There is a computer where internet can be accessed for $1 per 10 minutes. Did not use that, though.
