Good position by the beach and 15mins walk to the town. Clean facilities but only 4 showers ( 2 shared). Internet not worth bothering with after 4pm with everyone trying to use it. Sites rather cramped.

Nice space for camper. Right next to beach (watch out for sandflies). 1.5km to town centre. Quiet. Good bathrooms. Dump station and laundry. Friendly staff. Near to Glowworms. We stayed in January.

Very friendly staff! We were due to arrive at closing time, and when we arrived even later, we were met with a printed note taped to the front door with instructions, wifi codes etc. We stayed in an unpowered site and were happy with the facilities.

Easy to find, about 1.5km out of town headed North. The site is about 20 seconds from the beach which is in keeping with the West Coast, strong swell and windswept. The walk along is good and the sunsets would be stunning.
The site is clean with ducks and chickens wandering about and the small animal menagerie is fun for the kids. The kitchen has a dining area and really good is that there is an abundance of utensils pans and even drying towels. Really saves walking 20 metres or so with all your cooking kit. A bit pricey at $70 for 2 adults and 3 kids (near Christchurch prices) but it was ok. Yeah the free wifi was a draw for the kids though they spent most of their time in their devices!

This is a great location! It is close to town and a minute from the beach! Perfect for watching the sunset. Wifi, kitchen usage, showers/toilets included. We paid $32 for an unpowered site. There are a few animal camp-mates like alpacas and pigs!

Great park. Not really much of a view but you can walk to the beach. Little animal farm....even us grown ups liked. Best showers......!!
