Turned up without booking to a few powered spaces still available. Liked the location, out of the city. Good spaces between the spaces, and convenient to have dump station and fresh water alongside the power hook up. Pleasantly surprised to find that the site had good wifi throughout the pitches. Shower facilities good be improved, no devision between shower and changing area meant grass and outdoor show muck was being washed towards plug hole in shower by over flow of water.

Greeted by very friendly, helpful staff member. Used the showers. Excellent location for the night time penguin watch which went to with short drive back in the dark. Quiet road so no disturbance.

Facilities a bit dated, but functional and clean. Very friendly staff and well maintained plots.
Nice spot to explore the peninsula or take the bus for a day in Dunedin.
Have stayed here before, would do so again.

Very cute, quiet and clean little campsite. Enjoyed it a lot! Great place with small kids because of the horses across the (cul de sac) road and you can leave the campervan and walk into the little village for a coffee or some groceries. Good kitchen facilities! Had no issues with the shower....

Nice little family run place a quick walk to the tiny town of Portobello. There is a yummy cafe and small grocery there and a few of the wildlife tour groups will pick you up at the store or at the campsite. Kitchen facilities were great and the hostess was excellent. Gets 8/10 because the showers were impossible to figure out (especially while wet and freezing) even after consulting with people who had been there multiple days.

Good campground. Best place for exploring the peninsula. A bit basic for a kiwi. But it has all the necessary facilities. Slow wifi, but I didn't have a problem with cold showers as mentioned before. The room was cold, the water wasn't. Around the corner there's the penguin cafe. A absolute treat. We enjoyed the apple pie and chocolat cheesecake.

Stayed here when the tail end of cyclone Gita was hitting NZ, so it rained and rained for 24hrs. We were in a tent first night unpowered pitch $36 then a cabin @ $65 (plus $5 if you want bedding) became available so we were able to stay another night and let the tent dry off. V good kitchen area with 3 large stoves with 4 gas hobs on each. Gas burners need adjusting. Pots n pans n 10 tables seating 4 each in dining area. No crockery to speak of so bring your own. 2 large fridge freezers. V busy at mealtimes but we all fitted in. Only 3 electric showers and 3 loos in each of the ladies and gents. Not that clean but it was v wet and muddy and a lot of traffic in the ladies. Wifi as mentioned below. V popular with Motorhomes.
Very helpful staff. Def recommend a visit. Good value.
