Camp Bay Camping Ground


Boat / walking track access only

The Camp Bay Camping Ground is one of the campsites along the Queen Charlotte Track. It is in a sheltered bay with the luxury of a lodge (and a bar!) with a small shop and restaurant nearby. What a treat, especially is you have been walking or mountain biking along the track.


  • Queen Charlotte Track closed from Resolution Bay to The Pines, Endeavour Inlet

    The Queen Charlotte Track is closed between Resolution Bay and The Pines in Endeavour Inlet due to a slip. There is a risk of further collapse and the track is unsafe for use.

    This section of track will remain closed until Thursday, 14 April 2022 while we work to make an alternative track around the slip area. This work is subject to weather and other variables, but the aim is to have this section of track open before Easter.

    Track users will need to arrange alternative boat transport around this section. Contact your booking agent or the Marlborough i-SITE for transport options.

This campsite was really beautiful. Right next to the beach (not sand though) and a little stream, very quiet.
The only annoying thing was the Weka. Watch out for him, he'll steal rubbish, cookies, tobacco and food!

Water is drinkable without treating.

Overcrowded if you arrive late so the spot for our tent was a mix of soil and rock. That was not a restfull night..... toilet and water are okay.
