We stayed on a powered site on the camp ground for $20. Owners were very pleasant and helpful but the site is very dated with old facilities that are desperately in need of updating. Water supply is only rain water which has to be boiled and there is no dump station.

What a brilliant place to stay. From the first weekend my partner and I spent here, we have fallen in love with the place. Now we take our kids here as often as we can, they often ask when we are going to the caravan next. A great place to relax and it's so easy to entertain the children with so many activities in the immediate vicinity or just a short drive away we are never bored. Additionally hosts are wonderful and really go out of their way to ensure guests are comfortable and happy. Thanks George and Jean!

What a transformation this place has had. Amazing place to camp or stay in dorm or motel. Clean, fresh and very comfortable. George and Jean are amazing hosts who have done so well with the upgrades. Great facility for family and kids. Lots to do or relax in surrounding beauty. Definitely a place to book when in Catlins. Highly recommend

This will be our fourth xmas at Keswick camping ground and it is far better than any other camp that we have stayed at, nice and quiet with excellent facilities and great hosts, it is safe for children with the playground close by and excellent swimming for them, we would recommend this camp to anyone

We have located our caravan here for 3months, the caretakers are very nice people and very helpful, having only managed this site for a few months, they work very hard and are gradually renovating the facilities. The park is very quiet and has plenty of open space for children to play plus the estuary very close for walks. Recommend not bypassing this place when in Pounawea,
