Information

An amazing place with a friendly vibe, there are lots of little alcoves to put your tent up in. Designated BBQ areas and a short walk to the beach. So well worth the visit!

There are some great walks to do here to the trig and further on to Three and Five mile bay. There are interpretation panels at the top of the trig where it explains the history of the area in the midst of the gold rush when this place was pumping - hard to imaging now.... The walk over the top can be turned into a loopwalk when the tide is low to make it back to Okarito.

Check out the white herons.

Okarito campground will have livein hosts for 2017-2018 summer. Sure to make the experience so much more enjoyable. Prices will be $15 from September. Hot showers $2. Beautiful non treated drinking water. Okarito village uses revenue generated to support a predator control programme on Okarito Lagoon & forest.

Would endorse everything written in the reviews over the past year! We were here in July 2020 and although its a bit off the main highway that makes the camp ground so much more attractive. Love the community run aspect and the person we met was very friendly and helpful. Facilities clean and monitored daily. Wild West Coast beach within easy walk and sites protected by mainly large flax plants

Fantastic community run camp ground a paddock from the beach. Recommend trig walk and Okarito kayak hire on lagoon. $2 for a shower. No powered sites here so very cold night when you have no heat.

Good place to stop for a couple of nights. Very good facilities and free WiFi they worked perfectly! Charging point and water point. Good value for money. There’s a nice walk up to a lookout to the mountains and you can also continue on the walk to the lagoon. If the tide is right you can walk back along the beach - but do check the tide.
