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.

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.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.

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.
A beautiful setting and well-maintained campsite with all the facilities clean and working well. We were in the inland section which was sheltered, but separated from the toilets and beach by a quiet road. We went to see the glow worms just after dusk which were spectacular, it's well worth taking the smaller track off the main path to see even more.
Great place for rest and recouperation after travelling!Great facilities.Great view over Sound and close to safe swimming/boating area. Good to have shop, as few other facilities nearby. Lovely walks in forest. Appreciated the information boards.
Camped at the bay on 26th dec to 6th jan. Amazing campsite with fantastic facilities. Stayed by the waters edge. Beautiful. Excellent people running the camp and the shop. Would recommend a stay there anytime. Will be back soon for another few days kayaking and riding
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 😍
