Great campsite in a beautiful and remote location. Large beach and plenty of sites available. Information center, running water and many toilets as well as cold showers. Access by a long windy gravel road, but many large vehicles have made it there. Truly a somewhat hidden gem.

Only had time for a day hike so drove to this campsite, walked the next morning, and took a water taxi back. Not at all crowded, and very beautiful beach! Only downside was a cold shower :(

For us this was the last stop on the coastal walk. Therefore we really enjoyed the proximity to the huge beach and even more the good facilities and showers before taking the taxi boat that departs just in front of the campground. Large grass area, not many people in the DOC sector. Not much shade.

Walk Access.
The Great Walk campsite is a small part of the large and popular drive in Totaranui Campsite. There's space saved here especially for walkers who book a site. It's a stunning beach with sand that's almost orange in colour. Being the only drive access campsite in the Abel Tasman, this is a busy spot in summer. If you want the feeling of walking to a more remote campsite, then there are other options that aren't too far away.
