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)

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.

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.

Bethany Park Holiday Park responds:

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.

Thanks Michael, appreciate your feedback. We are just a 15 minute walk to water taxis into the Abel Tasman park, or a 20 minute car drive to Marahau where you can begin your walk into the Park.

Very nice and spacious grounds. The facilities are top and super clean. There is a small but apparently fun playground for the kids (4 and 5). The staff is friendly en helpfull. The price is very reasonable. The surroundings are nice and it's a 1.3 km walk to the beach where it's easy to book trips to Abel Tasman NP. We've been places that offered more playground or impressive views but were also much more expensive. So a 10 because of the excellent value for money.

Hi, thanks very much for taking the time to respond, and in such depth. We are glad you found it good value as we do try to provide a place for families and travellers which is not too expensive. Our tent sites are $15.00 adult/night, and power is $18.00 per adult/night with children $8.00/night, under fives are free. We have a new playground on our 'to-do' list! Thanks again.

Having read all the reviews we decided to go there as it seemed a wonderful place.

Positives - A huge site, and a decent price.
Good location - Short walk to the beach and easy access to Abel Tasman.
Clean site with water available to top up campervan on most pitches.
Very friendly staff behind counter.
Toilets clean (although the men's did smell at times of urine)

Negatives- paid for Wi-Fi-poor connection and kept dropping out on both Samsung phone and iPhone.
Sadly our awning and pop up air vent on our camper was damaged at a cost of 600 dollars to replace and repair. Spoke to the camp manager who although was very friendly informed us there was nothing he could do and suggested it was the wind (no refund or anything was offered). Spoke to some surrounding pitches to our site and they stated there was no wind, they just heard a bang. It was 26 degrees, zero wind whatsoever and we were under a tree site. We had spent the day walking in Abel Tasman with superb, wind free weather even on the 2 hour boat trip. We found it difficult to believe this was wind damage. Due to these pricey damages we would not stop there again as we expected it would be safe. Very upset and disheartened.

Hi Theo, thanks for taking the time to write, we note you commented on the Campermate app also, and as we replied there, we are sad to think there could have been vandalism at Bethany, just never happened before, particularly on a very public site throughout the day. We are sad this happened to you and hope the rest of your NZ trip was without incident.

Very friendly welcome at the reception when we arrived, beautiful spacious campground with lots of shade in case desired.
Really nice and clean facilities (kitchen/dining area/showers). They even go the extra mile and had turned on the radio in the shower - how awesome is that!
From Bethany Park to Marahau is approximately 20 mins, so it’s a very convenient location for any activity in Abel Tasman (they also gave us some good tips and help!). And Kaiteriteri has a nicer beach to swim etc than Marahau, so by staying here you get the best of both!
