Lovely place. We stayed in meadow with our camper. Very quiet area. The kitchen is very clean and you can sit outside.
Shower costs 2 NZD.
You must take your trash.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 78 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
The side is really pretty located with direct access to the sea. The kitchen has not enough hotplates and there were no utilities at all. But the worst: The facilities are really dirty. I think the showers were never cleaned befor.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Lovely site and location. Sheltered. Quiet in early November but school children were in the cabins. Adequate facilities but showers were expensive and ran hot and then cold! Also kitchen, toilets, showers and laundry were very dirty which was off putting and not acceptable given the price! Cafe was shut although we were given a free coffee on arrival. Overall loved the location but unlikely to return as so dirty.

A small and uneven camping area with a lot of patronage in the summer holiday season. The access road is gravel, narrow, steep and winding with several potential bottlenecks for opposing traffic. Facilities are well maintained although stretched in a crowd. Vanners are discouraged from filling water containers and there are no facilities for dumping grey or black water. Easy access to the sea for a dinghy or kayak. $2 showers. Lots of walks from the bay and a very safe swimming beach (with stingrays). Campers also need to beware of losing small items to the persistent wekas.
Lovely inlet setting. Campsites ($32) are set back from the waterfront, so obstructed views from the car. Nice jetty and picnic tables next to the water. Saw stingrays from the Jetty. Paid extra ($2) for a hot 5min shower (we just shared). Nice walk directly from the campsite to a lovely lookout (no paid pass required).
Expensive camp, plus you pay a lot for a shower and the washing machine cost was excessive. There were little utilities in the the kitchen. The amenities are new and clean with good views.
Excellent site run by very nice people. Mid October was quiet. That's not always true so worth checking. There's a flattish area near the sea or a few more spaces up a slope where we went. Very peaceful. Good facilities, showers were fine, price entirely reasonable for where it is. Some good glow worms nearby. The Onahau walk has great views on the way up and wonderful views at the top.
Fantastic site and even better location. Idyllic. Good facilities, superb setting, great for Queen Charlotte track. Friendly and welcoming warden. Don't be put off by other reviews whinging about price and shower time limits. Folk need to get real. This is 2016 after all and this site would be difficult and expensive to service, being relatively remote.
