Excellent little spot, very well looked after and pretty much spotless. Worth the drive away from the crowds & Inland Kaikoura Rd is a pleasure itself. One of the best of the 20 camps stayed in on this tour!

We came back after 2 years. Time to renew the review: start to say: very very nice clean motor camp!
There is a totally new sanitary block for the women. 2 perfect showers and toilets.
Men can use the other sanitary. Maybe not that posh but super clean.
Kitchen perfect!
Let’s not forget the owners: nice, helpful..... and they may be proud of this place

What a beautiful campground! Its a tiny and quite place, really worth to stay. From to campground its a short walk to a nice river, were you can walk around and fishing.
There are new Womans shower and toilets, so enough place for Men and Woman.
The kitchen and comon room is very homely and well equipped.
All facilities are very clean.
