This campsite at Papatowai on the Catlins coast is nestled in the bush. It has easy access to the beautiful beach and estuary, and there are short walks nearby.

Great site with epic beaches views and the best smelling drop toilet I might have ever encountered. Only downside were all the people who showed up late with their blinding headlights and then left without paying. Shame on them. If you want to enjoy a nice beach with nice toilets please pay the measly $8.

Good - easy to find , a lot room, the camp provides a kitchen area and good toilets. It is conveniently located next to a general store.
Bad - I didn't have signal in my phone. Plenty of campsites even late in the day.
Nice spot for camping, $10 a night for me and my tent. There is some nice bush and soft grass to find a pleasant spot to camp in. The facilities are basic, but clean.
Lovely open grassey campground surrounded by Forrest, with clean toilet facilities. Bring cash to leave your DOC campground fees in the box at the entrance to park. Approx. $8 per person per night.
Perfect place for one or two nights. The sites can be a little boggy after rain, has a camp style kitchen connected to toilet block. Easy to find as it is in front of a shop/petrol station.
Nice sheltered DOC site with an enclosed kitchen and flushing toilets and plenty of benches. More than I was expecting. $8 per adult.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
