What a spot!! Right on the water's edge on Queen Charlotte Drive. This camping spot is extremely popular as there are heaps of things to do in this area including any sort of marine activity, walking, biking, fishing you name it - it's here.
This site even has a shop operating during the summer season for your ice cream and fish 'n' chip fixes.
Please note that there are no pets or music at this family camp ground as the sites are close together.

Lovely place but super pricey. We were charged $46 for a spot by the water in April (small camper, 2 people, powered), and then had to pay for showers on top. There were no easy access garbage bins, just those behind the shop, nowhere near sites or kitchen.
It is pretty, lovely walk, glow worms etc, and super clean toilets. But ridiculously expensive. 10 for location and facilities, 2 for price.
We were with our 6 berth camper and had a great time here.It's truly an amazing campsite with very clean facilities and stunnings views from almost every spot. Enough picknicktables, a playground for the little ones; It's perfect for families. The glowworms at the back of the campsite at night are a cool experience as well.

Great facilities stayed in a 4berth campervan along the foreshore amazing views of water. Refreshing dip at beach. Kids playground. Icecreams at store.
Our first campsite on a month-long campervanning holiday. Very busy (as expected for time of year). Rather brusque woman doing check in, not very welcoming. No dump station. Decent fish & chips. Campsite seemed expensive for the area and you have to pay for showers on top. The small play park across the road was good for the kids; just beware of the biting insects! Nice trail along the water’s edge for a morning jog.

Love this location right on the Queen Charlotte sound. We were the only campers and we enjoyed the peace and tranquility of this amazing cove. It costs $18 per person and the facilities were immaculately clean. The shower is required a one dollar coin.

Great hot showers (but extra money on an already higher end cost) and well stocked shop. Nice spot by the lake but is near the road - not too noisy though
We were there for two nights and enjoyed the stay. The facilities were clean and new. And being able to hop into the water was great, as it was really warm weather while we stayed.
It is not an especially beautiful campground setting but the view of the sound is really stunning to see, especially the sunset.
Stunning location. If weather is good stay here, its so beautiful & excellent camp ground. Loved it.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
