This place cannot be beaten so easily. The staff is so friendly and the service not from the earth. The beach walk was unforgettable with a big seal coming out of the water right in front of us. Great facilities and only 20 NZD pp per night.

Very disappointing! We drove an extra hour (getting in after dark) because of the advertizement of "Free wifi" on their site discription; being without for a couple of days we were looking forward to catching up with family back home. BUT when morning rolled around we had no internet. Apparently the code you are given only lasts so long and then after that you have to pay for it.
The only positive thing about this place is the hot showers. You do have access to laundry machines in the evening; which cost $10NZ per load. The community kitchen is very run down and moldy. The toaster never worked. The bathrooms did have tp so that was nice. I would not stay here again.

A beautiful, peaceful , clean campsite. Great value for money. $28 for 2 with electric. Shower just $2 plenty of hot water. Host very welcoming. Surrounded by open countryside and rolling hills. Great clear views of night sky and the sun shone all the time.

Definitely one of the best camp sites in New Zealand. For $10 per person you get pretty much the same (actually better) toilet facilities you’d get at a DOC site for $13 or even more, plus showers and a small kitchen. Note that the kitchen is not equipped though, just some plates and cutlery.
The parking area is very nice, perfect for tents and campervans, lots of cushy green grass. The owner is an amazing lady, very interesting to talk to.

Plus free internet (200mb)!!
