Beautiful spot near the end of the peninsula, we stayed here in perfect weather on the grass sites at the back which were really quiet end of Jan mid week.
Awesome beach, nice short walks nearby, really friendly and helpfu staff. Good longdrop toilets and cold showers. Drinking water.
No where particularly close to buy food.
Was $13pp in a honesty box in May. Beautiful location - very peaceful + nice nearby walks.
Idyllic location and very peaceful. Great for swimming and a good 2hr walk to do from the site. Mainly very friendly locals

Incredible little campsite, one of my all time favorites. Beautiful sheltered bay. Camp hosts were incredibly knowledgable about the local area and very helpful. Amenities were super clean at all times. We loved the composting and the ingenious waste reducing ice blocks (5x for $1). We can't wait to go back.
A very beautiful spot on the beach. Unfortunately we had paid our money at the self registration station ($10pp pn) before we realised that all the grassy camping areas were closed as it was too wet (fair enough) and we had to camp in the carpark next to the rubbish bins. A sign at the self registration station advising this would have been nice!
Beautiful camp right on a harbour beach. Isolated and peaceful but can get very wet after heavy rain. We had it to ourselves in mid April.
Wonderful and scenic place.

Beautiful ecology and very peaceful.
Nice place, nice owners.
Lovely site. We arrived pretty late but were welcomed with a friendly smile. A lovely spot at the beach. We arrived here late March so it was not crowded at all. Lovely hiking tracks around.
Beautiful campground just next to a bay.
Best things about this site is the AMAZING views you get driving to it and the fact you can back up right onto the bay shore :)
Also there is a lovely walk which gives amazing 360 views from the trig (you get a map on arrival)
But the long gravel road getting to it is pretty awful and the sea gulls were pests.
DOC beachside campsite with wonderful views, a bit remote but nice scenic drive to it, if heading to / from Russell. Warden was helpful and friendly. Usual DOC dry toillets which weren't as smelly as some I've encountered. Cold showers, but all clean and tidy. A good place to chill out. Pitches were a bit uneven
Stayed by the bay, fabulous views; really nice warden; fabulous walk around the site.
Friendly and beautiful, clean showers and toilet.
Bit of a drive to get to, but worth it. Nice safe protected beach, ideal for families with small children. The campground was right on the beach, had recently updated facilities (cold showers only). Planned to stay only 1 night, ended up being there for 3. Campground manager is friendly & helpful, kept us well informed when NZ was under tsunami watch after the Japan earthquake. The walks in the area are good also, and looks like a good spot for fishing and kayaking. Love to return and spend a week there.
Very nice situated, super nice ranger, nice quiet bay, good short tracks to walk.
