Very good spot, lovely staff and facilities. Showers require coins which we were provided at check in for free. There is a pub/restaurant on site which does great food so we enjoyed a night off cooking.

Great place, Nice private sites, birds singing, friendly staff - whats not to like :-) Their cafe has lots to offer of coffee choices, milkshakes, muffins etc. Also dinner and breakfirst offering - really Nice!
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Wonderful little gem of a campground! We came based on the reviews and it did not disappoint. Cute little restaurant and cafe at reception where they sold fresh produce from their garden. Kitchen was a good size and only gave them a 9 instead of a 10 as the bathrooms only have 1 male and 1 female stall in them ( but they do have 2 separate facilities so plenty of space during our stay).
Based on the many great reviews we decided to stay for one night. When we arrived it was clear to us that we would extend our stay for two nights. This place is by far the best that we have seen during our two months in New Zealand! Lovely hosts, great food (cookies, cakes and on Sunday's bread) and drinks, organic veggies (awesome price), clean facilities and the price was outstanding. We paid 32$/night for 2 adults for a powered site which was only 6$ more than a scenic DOC but there was a lot more to get. A great spot to relax from all the driving and definitely worth more than a quick stay for the night. Highly recommend this last light of New Zealand!

Definitely a highlight of the trip for us. The site might be out of the way but the restaurant, campsite, beaches, and caves nearby make it a worthwhile destination.
The restaurant boasts homemade foods, jams, organic produce, a variety of wines and beers, batista coffee. If you're not up for that there are barbecues, a well stocked kitchen, or the local Four Square. The kitchen is well equipped and clean. Also the toilets and showers are in good condition (coin operated showers, they can give you change at the cafe).
The tent sites are large and separated from each other by trees and bushes. Powered and unpowered sites are close to all the facilities.
Try the jam!
Very nice place, very nice stuff, everything what you need and more for a very little price, and a good restaurant too. I can't understand, why there are so less people.
We come from Switzerland and stay 6 weeks in North and South NZ. This is the best valued campsite we had:
+ 2 people powered site for $32
+ friendly receptionrestaurant with good coffee and organic menu (sometimes live music)
+ $2 shower for 3 minutes, very clean
+ $3 laundry/ dryer, very clean with washing line and pegs
+ home made production (free range eggs and vege garden)
+ quick wifi without limit
+ bush track to the river
And and and......
Nice place and clean. Bit old accommodation, looks vintage but why does everything must be "nouvelle vague"?. It is a place that I come back. Good restaurant if you won't cook. People are very nice
The road and the region is very beautiful.
