We offer a traditional kiwi camping experience right on the waterfront. A quiet place to relax and enjoy stunning views of the Aorere river, Tasman bay and Kahurangi National Park hills.

Sites and cabins are all reasonably priced so the whole family can come camping and right in the middle of the beautiful Golden bay!

Historic Collingwood the place where you can do a little or a lot. The village boasts a mini supermarket, convenience store, great cafes, art galleries, a hairdresser and the famous Collingwood Tavern, all just 2 minutes walk from our front gate. You can visit Farewell spit, Cape Farewell, Whakariki beach, Langfords Historic Store, the machinery Museum, plenty of eateries in the area including Zatori, The Mussel Inn or the Old school House Cafe. Our nearest "Township"…

Nice people. Reestablishing after flooding. Classic kiwi campsite. Ideal base for exploring top end of Golden Bay.

Old but just the best. We had a pitch on the edge of the water and it was stunning. It could all do with a bit of modernising but it would lose its charm. We would have stayed longer but was booked elsewhere, but will definitely be on our list for the next trip.

We really liked this campsite! Very friendly owners, nice atmosphere and facilities and next to the beach. We were there just before Christmas and we paid $34 for 2 persons and a tent. Hot showers were included :)

We loved this campground and stayed there a number of times and would stay again. The facilities are not new but are comfortable and well provisioned. The owners and people there were lovely.

Superb site! Why can't they all be this good? Chris is very friendly and helpful. The location is wonderful - looking over the bay and Aorere River estuary to the Kahurangi National Park. The town is 2 minutes walk and there are very few bugs.
The price is only $20pp for a powered site with water, showers and dump station all free and everything works and is spotlessly clean.
The laundry has several machines, several driers and a huge communal rotary washing line. The kitchen and common areas looked very well equipped although we didn't use them.
The spotless ablutions were the best we have seen anywhere. You get a private pod with a toilet, shower, basin, mirror, shaving point, bin, soap all free with unlimited hot water. No struggling with press in taps or meters waiting to cut you off just as you get soap in your eyes. And the whole thing is protected from bitey things by your own mosquito net. How thoughtful!
We will be back.

Staying 7 nights, excellent site, all seem new. Small and friendly. Excellent showers. Small kitchen but only for a handful of sites. Strongly recommend.
