Beautiful campsite a short stroll through woodland to the beach or back along the road via the bird reserve. Spacious plot, plenty of facilities and everything clean and well maintained. Very family friendly. We got the Sea Shuttle from the beach for boat trip and walk in the National Park. Glow-worm walk next door well worth it. Lovely two days!

Very good place to stay if you want to explore the Abel Tasman NP. It was full during our stay but this didn’t bother. 2$ for 3min for hot shower is a minus point. Friendly staff, helps you with advises in any questions. Beautiful mountain bike park in proximity, part of the Great Taste Trail. Have your bikes with you, it is highly recommended.

Bethany Park Holiday Park responds:

Hi Niko, glad you enjoyed your stay, and yes it is great location for exploring the area. Just to remind people, our showers are $.50 cents for three minutes of hot water, not $2.00. Yes indeed, bikes are essential, as we have plenty of places to bike, a great 30 minute bike back into Motueka for coffee or lunch along the Great Taste Trail.

10 minute walk from the beach, spacious kitchen area but kids everywhere, woken up at 7/8am by screaming children wasn’t a highlight of my holiday. You pay for your showers also.

Hi Lauren, yes we are a family camp and there are plenty of children about, sorry they woke you, not sure how to stop that, maybe place non-children families in a quieter spot.

We stayed here and Beach Motor Camp. This site is *much* nicer and 14 dollars less for a powered site. Free BBQ, showers 50c, really nice kitchen facilities with thoughtfully laid out seating area. Nice park for kids too. Probably the cheapest we've paid so far.

Beach Motor was expensive, and everything was still extra (not happy)

Hi Matt, Thank you very much for commenting, we appreciate your time. We are gradually upgrading the facilities and really glad you like the new kitchen/BBQ area and yes, it is good to have places to sit and relax in all weathers. Happy travels.

This is the best place we stayed having toured all of the South Island for 3 weeks. It’s impeccably clean with great facilities especially the showers and kitchen areas. The pitches are massive and staff can’t be more helpful. It’s a 10 minute walk via a wooded track to the beach, Tasman ferry departure points and other water activities but without all the hustle and bustle. We cannot rate this site highly enough.

Bethany Park Holiday Park responds:

Thanks very much Mike! That is praise indeed. Our team work really hard to keep Bethany park clean, and although we are not right on the beach, it is a pleasant and easy walk along through the bush by the estuary to the beach and cafes. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Appreciate you taking the time to comment.

We spent 3 wonderful days at this very spacious, quiet, clean and friendly camping. It provides bathing facilities for babies, and cheap laundry facilities. Nice hot showers cost only 50 cents per 3 minutes and a night at a spacious site coated. 40 dollars per night, for an RV, 2 adults, a child and an infant. It is situated onlt one km from Kaiteriteri beach, from which you can access the Abel Tasman NP by boat. We drove by the other campsite, which is located closer to the beach, but the bethany park seems a much nicer option. We loved the shared outdoor kitchen space with bbq facilities and the nice playground.

Hi Marie,
Thank you very much for commenting, it is always good to hear from families as we are working hard to make it as family friendly as we can. Being back from the beach means it is quieter... good for those wanting a bit more space and don't mind the 15 stroll to beach, store, cafes and the water taxi departures. Thanks again, safe travels.

Sites are definitely larger than the other option in town. Facilities are clean, kitchen nice and spacious, but showers are not included. A bit noisy in peak season but what can you expect. We had a corner lot for a campervan with plenty of room but everyone walked right through the site including right outside our door despite being parked in the middle which was a bit annoying. Overall would still choose this over the other option

Hi Heather, thank you for commenting... yes busy summers here, with lots of Kiwi families having their Christmas holidays. Sorry about the rudeness of some of our campers, a little respect would be nice indeed. Glad you did enjoy your time in Kaiteriteri.

Excellent location for ferry rides up to the Abel Tasman. Very clean/new toilets and showers and great area to cook and eat outside when it’s raining. There was a school group so children around which was fine but may not suit everyone.

Hi, thanks Libby. We normally have schools and groups over in our groups camp along the road, so unusual to share the kitchen/BBQ area with groups. Yes, we have a great covered area with outside gas cookers and sinks, as well as large free gas BBQ's.
