Cosy and small camp ground with superb location close to the sea. Aound the corner were seal laying at the beach.
Clean but bit outdated facilities. But it fits to the cool owner and charm of the location. Mainly blocks and only few campers. Perfect stay at catlinss!

Such great find . Best site we’ve found in our entire trip , ideal setting and excellent owners. So good we’ve just booked an extra night. Facilities good only 2 showers one m one f but not problem as surprisingly site not too busy . Sunset benches a really nice touch looking out over the a bay. Track from site to Surat bay and onward.
Weather great not what we expected of the Caitlins but whole area a real find. Brits coming to NZ should come down here off the tourist route but don’t tell anyone keep it secret

Great small scale holiday park in beautiful location. Hosts were friendly and helpful. Great kitchen with lots of extras. Take $2 coins for the shower but well worth it. Really clean and tidy. Bit of a trick getting a big caravan in but well worth the effort.

Great wee spot. Not huge but that's part of the appeal and guests seem to be friendlier. On tank water so showers on coins to keep them brief. I support this. Kitchen good enough with extra equipment too - always handy. Good advice about when to see local wildlife so we're pleased to experience the area. Nice and quiet and would have stayed longer if we had more time

Fantastic small scale campsite at the end of a gravel road. Facilities are great, kitchen en shared room have a very cosy atmosphere, and kitchen is well equipped. The great perk is that the campsite is close to the beach, for wonderful walks. And of course the sun set sitting area. We have travelled last year and this year for a month with a camper, and this is really the best campsite we have been.

We stopped here as our electric camper had ran out of power. We hooked ourselves up and found the owners to witch they were very understanding and extremely polite and allowed us to power up until we had enough km to get to another power sight. During our brief stay they allowed us to use all amenities and only asked for a small fee! Over all lovely place would stay here!the beach is amazing and we got to see one seal! He was very friendly and came and said hello. Cannot recommend this place enough

I was on a motorcycle trip by myself camping all around the south island. This was by far my favorite place I stayed. I was hesitant to stay at holiday parks, but as soon as I pulled up the owners were extremely friendly and welcoming. The beach, sea lions and facilities are amazing and it's exactly what I needed after a long chilly, wet and windy day of riding. I even woke up to watch sea lions playing in the bay directly in front of my campsite. I don't really write reviews but felt I needed to make an exception for this place. It's definitely worth staying if you are by yourself, with friends or with a family. I would 100% come back if I'm ever down there.

Highlight of the stay was the beach walk to see the local sea lions! The little kitchen was small but functional and free outdoor bbqs were nice. Free 200mb of WiFi per night was handy to. the only shame was the showers I understand being on tank water means they need to be short but would’ve been nice if it was warm too!

We loved this place so much we didn't want to leave. When we went, the new owners had only been there 2 weeks. Grant and Deb were great. Facilities are great and super handy for a beach walk. Watch out for the crocodiles though. The showers are a pain but they are on tank water so it's understandable. They have heaps of DVDs to borrow at no charge ( but please be honest). I can't wait to get back there one day.

Great place to stay. Right on a beach with resident sea lions (we nearly fell over one, which was a bit of a shock). The facilities were spotless, and everything was catered for... utensils, pans, plates, etc, were available for use (saved carting our own over to the kitchen - hooray). There was even washing up liquid and clean tea towels (changed daily). The lounge felt like home, with books to borrow and games to play. It's the only place I've not had to watch my two little boys like a hawk as the lounge space was safe for them to play in. There were even age-appropriate toys available for them. We meant to stay one night, and ended up staying three as it was easy enough to use it as a base for exploring the Catlins. And for $40 a night for the family (powered site), it felt like a bargain.

Nice clean small holiday park. The owners were lovely and I liked the extra touches like the garden you could help yourself from. The lounge and kitchen were great if not a bit chilly (it was quite a cold day when we were there). The view of the sea was lovely. The main downside for me was that we had to pay $2 for a 5 minute shower. I don't mind this if it's a very cheap campsite but at $16 per person unpowered I think a free 5 minute shower should be included. Apart from that it was a lovely site.

Catlins Newhaven Holiday Park responds:

Hi Sarah - thanks for taking the time to review us, and your compliments about Bren & myself. Yes our guests really enjoy being able to help themselves to veges, salads or herbs from the garden.
Guests sure do value having the kitchen/dining area and lounge facilities - especially guests like yourself travelling and either tenting or sleeping in a car. It provides space for people to eat and relax when they are not in a cabin/flat or camper van. Just on your pricing comments - we are exceptionally proud to advise that we have again held our prices at 2010 rates (that's no price increase for the last 5 years) despite of course, all our costs going up each year. We think that this is a grand accomplishment and we are very competitive here in the Catlins. We are on rain water and are trying to do our bit to reduce our carbon footprint, so we think $2 bucks for a hot 40 litre shower is reasonable. Sure is a beautiful spot - great day for a swim today with temps at 24 degrees.
take care, cheers Jude

Nice site and we had a prime spot to park our van right by the water with a great view. Facilities were very good with a nice clean kitchen and the manager / owner had suggestions for walks. If you go to the beach in the early morning (to watch a sunrise maybe) be aware that the local sea lions not only like to sleep on the beach but secluded in the dunes as well! I nearly fell over one and it scared the crap out of me! Otherwise a really nice site.

Wonderful! The lady who runs the camp was a real gem so sweet by showing us around and pointing out a nice sheltered spot for us to camp. Facilities were great and kitchen well stocked with utensils, there was also a living room with TV

Right next to the beach with it's own access, it was lovely to hear the waves when you wake up. Everything was meticulously cared for and the price is very reasonable @ $16pp. Only downside is it's not free wifi but that too is also really reasonably priced so if you can't live without Wifi it won't break the bank.
