Planned on staying one night here but liked it and the location so much we extended to two nights. Stayed on the east side in spot 43 which backed up to some cow pasture and the ocean beyond that. Less than a 5 minute walk to the park trailhead and cafe (which has great pizza and drinks). Showers and bathrooms were very nice and never had to wait more than a minute or two for one to open up. Laundry was a little difficult because one dryer was out of service and people kept beating us to it. Overall had an awesome stay and looking forward to coming back!

Our best stay in our 4 weeks across nz. We really felt at home here. We had an unpowered site that was spacious directly at the edge of the park. Situated at the park entrance you can start your walk into the park directly from there. They sold their own meat what was a nice surprise. They arranged us water taxi. Camp was full but atmosphere was great. Great holiday feeling!!!

This is a lovely site and perfectly placed in the National Park. I nearly didn’t come here because of all the comments about how tightly packed in the camper vans are but I’m so glad we did. We have a powered site and I don’t think we are tightly packed in compared to the other sites we have visited so far.
The Barn has a lovely feel to it - lots of different people here exploring the park. The facilities are great and nicely spread out - very clean toilets and showers with plentiful hot water.
It’s definitely not the cheapest, but I think we have had value for our money.
My only quibble... the wifi allowance is pretty stingy!

We absolutely loved the Barn for its vibe, facilities, location, set up etc. Maybe campervans could be a bit more spaced out bit this didn't bother us and it gets you talking to your neighbours, too. And it's not so big or at least doesn't feel like it, which was nice. Would defo recommend it and stay there again.

One of the best camp grounds on our trip. Really stunning views of the gateway to the Able Tasman and good facilities (if a little busy). The office booked our water taxis and kayak hire and there is some free wifi included. Lots of teenage backpackers but we were more on the family side of the site and it was quiet both nights we stayed.

I was not as in love with this campground as others were. What it has going for it is proximity to the trailhead for Abel Tasman hikers and clean facilities. They pack the campervans in next to each other on a grassy lot which greatly detracts from the camping experience. Also the internet worked only until my screen timed out while cooking; then, despite following their directions and leaving the browser open, I could not get back on.

Such a kick-ass campsite. Beautiful views and so close to the park. Beach walk is right in front of the camp grounds. They have a fully stocked kitchen as well as an outdoor kitchen which was great. Lots of bathrooms, hot water too. WiFi is for a limited time, which is fine cos you want to switch off! Friendly and nice staff, great vibe with fires and table tennis.

Very nice campground, even with ocean views depending on the space given to you. The owner/staff member at reception was very friendly. Toilets and showers were clean, showers also had hot water. The place even sells some food, beverages, and things like toothbrush and -paste in the reception building/office. Even free WiFi is available for free , at least a certain amount of data per. The price for the campground is also quite reasonable considering the facilities, location, and the general prices around Abel Tasman National Park. Would definitely recommend this place.

Showers and toilets really nice and new. Cooking and eating facilities were great. Pots, pans etc. free to use. Open fire in the cooking area kept it warm on cool nights. Great atmosphere around camp with plenty of backpackers coming through. Really good value for what we got.

Loved the site! Rhonda, the lady in charge was very helpful and friendly, nothing too much for her when it came to suggesting and booking trips for us. As independent travellers, she tried to get us and another couple involved with the group who had come off the Stray Bus - said its all about making friends. So that was nice of her. Amazing views of the mountains and the sea - especially from the showers as they have a high window looking right out onto the beach! Showers all clean, free and hot. Outside area with chiminea and outside seating too as well as the barn with kitchen facilities. Fab trampoline too - had a few giggles on that. Just make sure you dump waste before rocking up as no dump station - closest in Motueka. Also stock up on food as in winter, Marahua nearly completely shuts down. Recommend the kayaking with MSK which Rhonda can book for you. Definitely a place to visit!

The facilities at The Barn are reasonable and the sunrise in the morning is amazing. However, the owner of The Barn and his wife seriously ruined our stay. A member of staff offered us two large blankets as the weather was cold outside and we were camping. Upon packing down our tent, the owner accused my fiancé and I of taking the blankets from indoors ourselves. I explained to him this wasn't the case but he continued to be aggressive and rude towards me. After packing down I went into reception and told the owner I had put the blankets back inside. He said he would 'clarify' my version of events with the member of staff later implying he did not believe me. His wife also was very rude to me as I went to buy some breakfast. She pretended not to hear my order and stared at me, as again she believed I had taken the blankets myself. Great staff working the site were seriously let down by poor owners.

We were triggered to go to The Barn because of the excellent location next to Abel Tasman NP, but feared queuing on toilets or showers reading some of the reviews on Rankers, but fortunately this wasn't true. To set things straight there are indeed two kitchen facilities that had both 2 showers and 2 toilets, but there is recently built a separate sanitary bloc with 6 more toilets and 4 additional showers (new and clean).
Issues on unfriendly staff can be confirmed. The owner is really friendly and eager to help anyone, but all the rest of the crew were unfriendly indeed.
Still, The Barn is an ideal campsite as base camp for exploring Abel Tasman NP.

Clean new showers but no hair dryer. If you are into a bit of socialising, there is a main kitchen dining area where the younger crowd staying in the dorms hang but a tad noisy at night. Be warned that you can't get phone reception here and the paid wifi keeps dropping off. The other bad part about our park site was the crazy amount of flies. Courtesy of the estuary in front. Otherwise a really laid back place and great vibes.

A beautiful location; we got the generous pitch 24, which looks across the lake and easily accommodates a tent and a 4x4. Very few flies (we stayed end of Feb), great facilities - clean, hot showers and clean flush toilets and washing up area. Peaceful the evening we stayed. Staff less than friendly however, and shop shuts around 730pm. Other than that, a very good experience.

This campsite doesn't look great from the entrance area but go in.... Good toilet blocks, barbecue areas etc. powered sites have a nice outlook to the beginning of the Abel Tasman trek and out to sea. Much nicer campsite than the ones closer in to town. Staff a bit variable, one guy was delightful and the other very surly.
We only stayed one night but would have been happy to stay longer if time had permitted. Some very nice cabins available too.

Don't let the sandflies put you down! This is an awesome place and great base for walks and adventures in and around Abel Tasman.

Really cool place. Have to bring all your own stuff to wash though.

Very little cabin, but right price. Very smiley staff. Useful facilities. Interesting place for young people. Next to the Abel Tasman track.

We stayed here for 5 nights and had a great time-there was lots of space between the tents, clean bathrooms and kitchens and friendly staff. If you're going to Abel Tasman this is a great spot-so close to the track, water taxis etc. The local bar/cafe is a 2 min walk and has a great atmosphere.
