This is a very lovely place, it is a breath of fresh air in comparison to some campsites that you turn up at. You will feel very welcome as soon as you arrive. Toilets and kitchen spotlessly clean.
It is made special by the small extra details that go a long way e.g. visiting the glow worms/relaxed check out time.
One of our favourite stays! Great amenities with kitchen, tv room, dining table etc. Shower is $2 and very clean (like having a shower at home). Kevin is very welcoming and also took us up to see the glow worm dell. Definitely would stay here again.
This is a very new campervan/tenting/cabin small scale holiday park & the facilities are well designed & kept in excellent condition. We paid lower than one would expect for a powered site and very good free WIFI, (shower & laundry extra) - July 2020 - b/c of the fallout from COVID lockdown. Hoping that Kevin & Jules can recoup some loss as Kiwis head out for the spring and summer. Camper/caravan sites look wide enough to park a vehicle alongside. Suggested visits - “Tree Tops”, walk to the beach at sunset, Hokitika Gorge ... and the glow worms!

Linksview is amazing. Nice new clean amenities. Kevin was a perfect host and had offered to drop us off so we could cycle part of the Wilderness trail but the weather stopped that. Would highly recommend to all.
One of my favourite sites I’ve stayed at!
This place is absolutely perfect. Ticks all boxes, cheap, clean, friendly hosts. Kevin offered to take all 5 of us to the glow worms (however we were unable to go as it was raining and quite cold for our 3 young ones). Highly recommend 👌.
Brilliant stop. We were going to camp at treetops but it was cold and wet so we stopped here. They have everything here you need at a reasonable price.
Definitely recommend it. We spent the afternoon playing board games in the dining room whilst we recharged everything. Toilets were immaculate and owners fantastic. Will definitely be back.
Very modern campervan park. Great facilities clean and would be lovely sitting outside on deck on a warm evening. Most expensive camp we stayed $40 for 2 of us plus $2 for a shower. No offer of glow worms or eels when we visited.
Thank you to Kevin for the trip to Glow Worm Dell and the holiday park is very cosy! Love the common area to interact with many visitors to NZ!
Very nice place. Extremely clean and the owners are very very friendly. They offer free eel feeding and a trip to the glowworms in Hokitika (worth it). We also borrowed bycicles for free and for a amount Kevin drove us to Kawara Intake (in town they offer this trip for over 100 NZD pp so this is very nice).
You feel like family from the time you arrive. The owners take hospitality very serious and want to ensure your experience is great. We were impressed by the cleanliness, prices, WiFi but what makes this place is the owners. Great places for families with the eel feeding and glow worm tours that were free of charge.
Great facilities, wonderful owners! We had the loveliest time here. Feeding the eels and going to the glow worms was a big plus.
Great holiday park - very small and intimate, with clean amenities. You do have to pay for showers. The hosts were incredibly kind, showed us around Hokitika and took us to the glow worm caves. Worth every penny!
Awesome place! Warm welcome and very clean and new facilities.
Louise & Tom
Great stay! This was one of the best nights stay we've had in the south island :)
Very clean and all the facilities you need. Kevin and his wife are so welcoming and in the evening he took us to see the glow worn dell which was cool. They go out their way to make you feel comfortable and gave us loads of travel advise for our trip ahead. Wish more places were like this!
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 78 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
The cleanest facilities during our whole NZ trip (as everyone takes their shoes off in there).
As we were traveling with our 9 months old daughter this was perfect cause she could walk on her knees all over the place!
Very friendly and helpful owners.
Take you to the glow worm hills without extra cost and gave us lots of tips for continuing our journey to the north.
Great Place to stay!
It really felt like behing home.
Kevin and his wife were so gentle and generous.
If we come to NZ again we definetly will stay there again.
Best site in NZ so far.
Very clean and spacious communal area - perfect to escape a passing rain storm. Well kitted out with everything from washing/drying, TV, kitchen to board games and WiFi.
To round it off, Kevin drove us (free) that evening to the Glow Worm Dell.
David and zoe
Kevin and joy friendly and warm hosts. Great recommendations for things to do including later in travels. Facilities best we visited including top 10s, v modern and spotless. Shower 2nzd for 5mins but worth it, powerful.
Rhianne & Rich
Kevin and Joules were fantastic hosts and couldn't do enough for us - including a free glow worm visit! Kevin was more than happy to give recommendations for our onward journey which were great, coudn't recommend a stay here enough!
Linksview Holiday Park set the bar very high for other holiday parks! As our first night in a campervan we pulled up to the site and were welcomed by lovely hosts, Kevin and Jules. The kitchen, lounge/shared living area and bathroom facilities were well looked after, clean and tidy. Situated in a quiet area it certainly is a relaxing place to set up for the night! We almost wish we ended our last night in the campervan here! Absolute luxury 💕
Best place to stay after a wet and windy day. Clean and tidy facilities. Hot showers. Very friendly and warm hearted owners. Glow worm tour in the evening.
We very much enjoyed our stay. The facilities are clean and the nicest I’ve seen so far. The owners are marvelous and do everything they can to make you feel comfortable. Would definitely recommend!
The most lovely and welcoming people. Hot shower, beautiful clean fully equipped kitchen/dining area/picnic tables. Tv/stereo/books & board games in the lounge.
Cannot recommend highly enough!! Didn’t want to leave 💕
Besides that it is spotless clean and all faciliteit available, the hosts shake your hand on Arriva and make you feel at home in the livingroom/kitchen where you can also have contact with otter guests. In the evening free drive to the glowworm Dell and Beach. Well done, thanks for your hospitality, we will spread the word!
Very friendly with a warm welcome and trip to the glow worms. Best park we stayed at during our trip to NZ
The best place to stay so far. Very welcoming and the facilities are just awesome! Really nice hosts!
Absolutely fantastic experience. I would highly recommend anyone traveling through the area stay here.
Clean, new facilities, lovely owner. Highly recomanded!! Love this place.
Fabulous friendly folk. This was our favourite site on the whole of the South Island. Kevin and his wife made us feel at home, going the extra mile whenever they could. Everything is spotless and new. You can feed the eels in the river, cycle to the beach or visit the glow worm cave all for free! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. A&E
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
The best camp site ever! Very clean and comfortable, the owner Kevin, is the friendliest guy and he took us to see the light worms and around town!! Very cosy atmosphere, a place you don’t want to leave!!
The best place we’ve stayed at during our travels around NZ! We’re really glad we listened to the previous reviews and stayed here for the night, well worth it :).
The facilities are all lovely and there’s a really homely feel to the place, doesn’t feel like a camp ground but more like a home stay!
Kevin and Julian are both really welcoming and friendly, Kevin even took us down to the glow worms last night and stopped and chatted with me in the morning happy to offer recommendations for our travels, giving me lots of tips! They go above and beyond all other places we have stayed at :).
Katharina and Tom
It is a very clean and lovely place. Wifi worked perfectly good for us. The owners are super friendly, always up for a chat and kevin gave us a lot of advices what to visit in our upcoming holiday.
Good to know that there is no dumping place right at the camping area. But a public dumping spot is close.
We definetly recommend this place!!
Best camp site we stayed throughout our trip through Australia and New Zealand. Kevin was the most outstanding host! We would love to visit again some day.
The best holiday park I've stayed. Kevin is so kind and friendly and the place is quite new, clean and comfortable.
We visited in August, only ones staying the night here. $40 for 2 people on powered site. $2 for a hot shower, but VERY nice bathroom. They also have a washer and dryer $4 for each. Lovely new kitchen and living area, tv, board games, books (good if it’s raining) all very clean. Owners are so nice and friendly and make you feel very comfortable! Is about 2km out of town so nice area. Definitely the best place we’ve stayed so far!!
Made to feel really welcome by Kevin and Jules. The site is warm and clean, with toys for our boys and space to run about outside. Kevin gave us some great ideas for the north of the Island where he’s from. Highly recommend this camp site.
Ruud and Susan
What a wonderful place! No sandflies, great location. Everything was very clean and tidy. It is very cosy, you will feel at home! And lots of advice and goodness. We and the kids loved it!! And we only paid 40 dollar tot 1 night, for 2 adults and 2 kids!!
We had the place to ourselves in late June. Kevin is an awesome host. The place is immaculate. Nicest place we’ve stayed yet!
We had an amazing night in this camping. Mr Kevin is the best host you can have. He welcomed us warmly and recommended us the best places to go in the Southern Island. The facilities are really clean! If you are looking for a place to stay in Hokitika, it is the place.
The best place i stayed on my visit to NZ. I was hunting on the west coast and came in for rest and showers every now and then. It was like coming home, genuine nice people! Kevin and Julian are good people! And everything is kept spotless
Erik Bendtsen aka Erik the Bushman
We had an amazing night here. Kevin was an incredible host. The facilities were great- the bathroom facilities felt like a fancy hotel! So clean and modern. Kevin made 3 separate trips taking guests to the glowworms for free. It's clear he cares about his guests and their experience. In Summer, he will stay up until midnight to do this rather than having his guests driving campers individually to them.
It's a small campsite compared to others but when chatting to Kevin, this was a purposeful decision. A smaller campsite means they can keep up such high standards.
Would recommend to everyone!
This was our first stop at a holiday park ever and we definitely recommend this one highly. Kevin and Julian are the nicest couple on earth. They provide invaluable guidance and the place is just spitzenklasse - everything new and clean, and you can simply feel them caring. Obviously, we didn't try the other ones nearby, but we don't feel the need to try them.
Eva & Florian
One of the best places of our trip! The owners are so friendly and helpful, feels like home there. They even have apples, milk and tea for free. Facilities and kitchen are brand new and very very clean. Thank you Kevin and Julian for the great tips and recommendations for NZ you gave us! Loved it! Greetings from Eva & Florian
We experienced a very friendly and family welcoming. The campground is best equiped and absolutely clean. Great value for money.
Great place to stay, amazing facilities and close to the town.
Definitely recommend staying here. The place is small and new and run by a lovely welcoming couple. The main facility area in the middle feels a little like home; very comfy and warm, kitchen is fully equipped and you can buy fresh eggs from their farm. The bathroom has a shower ($2 for 5 mins, bring $2 coins) with a bath mat (such a luxury!) and hand towels - very homey. The couple were quick to recommend places to us around Hokitika and in the evening they were sitting around with guests giving them recommendations and tips for the rest of their trip around the South Island. The grass areas are all flat and soft for camping on too. Will definitely come back!

This is the only review I have felt compelled to write. By far and away, the best campsite we have ever stayed at in NZ. Facilities are exceptional and incredibly clean. Free WiFi, hot showers (small charge) laundry, immaculate kitchen with all equipment. Lovely touches such as book swap, board games and farm fresh eggs. The hosts were so eager to please and full of great advice about our onward travel. They deserve the custom; TIP - stay here and pay the $17pp (unpowered) rather than driving to the nearby DOC camp for $13pp and have a 100% better experience.
A very lovely campground, new showers en toilets, very nice living room/kitchen area (alsof brand new). Next to the road, but its very quiet at night. Its not the most scenic place we have been in New Zealand, but the owners are very friendly, you feel at home. They do everything to make your stay pleasant. In the evening Kevin drives you to a glowworm cave, he is a funny guy, he built the campsite with his wife. Highly recommend this place 10/10
Arrived quite late at the campsite but got the friendliest welcome from Jules! Had a little tour of the facilities and wow they’re beautiful! No shoes allowed in the kitchen area which leads through to the ladies toilet/shower and it’s such a great idea. Haven’t seen any facilities that clean and that lovely, really felt like a home away from home after all this travelling (we’re from the UK!). Would definitely recommend, thank you!
Cute holidaypark, very warm welcome from the owners, very clean and new facilities, you feel right at home!
Kevin and Julian go above and beyond for every camper. The place is incredibly well kept and was by far the best campsite we have stayed in. The facilities are brand new and there is a grill.
Very nice and friedly campground. Owners are very helpfull.
Grass has golfcourse quality.
Facilities are new and clean. Hot shower for 5 minutes is 2 dollar, cold is free. Cold washingmachine is 4 dollars, as is the dryer.
Comfortable living room and well equiped kitchen and bbq. Very suitable for rainy days as well.
We loved our stay here.
Very friendly couple! And very nice facilities. So good, that we don’t want to stay at the free campsite just down the road! Ample space, free range eggs for sale, big and powerful BBQ, (one of them reserved for pizza only) kitchen with tea and coffee and milk in the fridge. The husband came to check that everything was all good at our tent site. And he took several campers, including my group for a drive to the glow worm caves at 10:00 that night! And the wife gave us salve when she saw our sandfly bites.They really go above and beyond with the hospitality. Showers are $2 for 5mins, but it’s not an inconvenience at all. Will definitely stay again. And for longer next time! Thanks a bunch guys
This was the best campsite we have been in all New-Zeeland. We immediately were welcomed by the owner Kevin and his wife, due to this warm atmosphere it reminded us of home. The facilities were amazing, very clean, BBQ, coffee and tea, ... On the morning he brought us for breakfast free range eggs and zucchinis. Thanks a lot, greetings from Belgium!!!!!
We went there because of the good reviews and I agree with the previous comments. However, it was pretty busy when we were there and for the amount of people we found the facilities too small. Eg there is only one shower for females and males plus an extra one that both can use (and you have to pay for it). The kitchen / living area is also quite small eg only one sink and stove. So probably better to go there outside of the peak season.
Great campsite with awesome community areas. The hosts create a really nice atmosphere among their guests. One of the best in NZ
I stayed 2 nights at this campsite.
The comfort and friendliness of the place, the availability of the owners are just perfect.
The place is clean, we believe in our living room. It's very nice.
Kevin offers us and advises us perfectly on the activities of the region (possibilities to rent a bike) and brings us with great pleasure every evening to go see the glow worms.
Showers are $ 2
Washing machines and dryer at $ 4 (but possibility to relax the laundry)
For one person, with my car not sc, I paid $ 17
Very nice and friedly campground. Owners are very helpfull.
Grass has golfcourse quality.
Facilities are new and super clean. Hot shower for 5 minutes is 2 dollar, cold is free. Cold washingmachine is 4 dollars, as is the dryer.
Comfortable living room and well equiped kitchen and bbq. Very suitable for rainy days as well.
We loved our stay here.
If it wasn’t for the noisy highway 6 it could have scored higher. Ok for a night but wouldn’t stay here during the day. Friendly staff lady and clean (I mean very clean) facilities. Nice cut and green gras to put up your tent.
Nice place and is very clean and new. The owner is super friendly.
Unreal welcome! Made to feel right at home even with the Irish digs haha. Lovely kitchen, class living room. The fella will take groups to a little glowworm haven each night for free out of the goodness of his Kiwi heart. You can buy loveky eggs for very cheap and milk for tea and coffee was provided... The people make the place and this pair of campground owners set the bar very high!
This place is unique! The owners are super friendly and really care about the site and the people! Fresh eggs from the farm and lemons on the table. Took us to a glow worm place, stunning! Don’t mind the highway, hardly noticeable.
Everything was Super new and clean.
Oh and bring meat, there is THE Grill.
thanks so much! Highly recommended!
Best place ever! Hosts are super-friendly and of you like Kevin can help you plan your trip. He takes you also for free to an amazing glowworm-spot.
Very clean bathrooms and kitchen.
Good place to connect with other travellers.
Emmy and Laurie
We would thoroughly recommend this place to everyone! Beautifully appointed, spotlessly clean and the hosts are wonderful! Great fun times had by all when we visited. Thanks again, Kevin and Jules- we have fond memories!
Be sure to see the glow worms in the dark... you’ll love it!
Soenke and Christina
We have been travelling around New Zealand for 3 Weeks in a Campervan with a seven month old infant now and changed campsites nearly every day. We felt always welcome and most of the time all staff or owners tried to help us or give us good advises.
But when we arrived at Linksview they set the bar to an other level.
The Campsite looks still very new and everything is well maintained. The sides are not the biggest we have had, but it was absolute fine for our 7,2m Campervan. Toilets and Shower are perfectly clean and they even had real towels for your hands after washing.
When we arrived, we thought it might bother us, that the side is quiet close to the highway, but in the end we did not even notice it!
The kitchen and the living room were so nice, we felt really like we were sitting in someone’s living room. You have to take your shoes off in there so the nice carpet stays as wonderful as it is. In the morning the owner and his wife turned up again and we just chatted in the living room for nearly an hour. And you get fresh egg’s from their own chicken for breakfast!
Absolutely perfect! We hope the places stays like it is. Especially our little baby enjoyed crawling on the carpet in the huge living room, so please keep the place like it is.
P.S.: If you are going to Hokitika for jade shopping, check out the wilderness gallery from Juergen Schake! Very nice gallery with great things to buy and a very friendly owner.
Lovely place to stay. The best Campground in NZ. Many thanks to the hosts for their hospitality, the fresh eggs for the breakfast, the nice evenings and the trip to the Glow Worm Dell. :)
Really lovely place run by a lovely couple. $17/night for an unpowered site for a single person. Nice communal kitchen and bathrooms areas. The owners bring in fresh eggs from their chickens in the morning and have a supply of coffee and tea around. Kevin also offered to drive a number of us off to see the glow worm dell (not to be missed, a really excellent glow worm site!). Clean eveything and they take a lot of pride in their site. Showers are $2/4min which makes me a bit sad but this is balanced out by the overall excellence of the place. Definitely a great stop.
New facilities, super clean. Amenities are like a hotel room, lounge, kitchen, laundry, toilet & showers. We were offered free fruit, coffee, milk and eggs during our time their. Best park we have stayed at in NZ. Same price as everywhere else we stayed. Our hosts were fabulous, Kevin couldn't do enough to help. He showed us around, made sure we had everthing we needed. Keven also played tour guide, gave us some excellent pointers and helped us plan our next leg of our journey. Had an excellent stay here, pitty it was only one night.
Baizurah and Friends
This park is right next to the road.. We found it without even trying very hard. It is close to the Hokitika Gorge and town.. Our hosts Kelvin and Julian were pretty warm and welcoming. We also met their adorable dog Nike.
Kelvin gave us travel tips and suggestions.. He also took us to see the glow-worm at night and to the beach. We had so much fun riding in the car with the other guests who joined the outting.
Kelvin and Julian also gave us lots of Golden kiwi fruits that came from their friend's farm up north. We had so much Kiwi and it lasted us the entire trip - i kid you not.
We had a lovely time there! Would definitely head that way again should we ever be in South Island again!
Every camp ground operator should visit Kev & Jules @Linkview to appreciate how the best, privately operated site is run. We were treated more like a B&B guest with very new facilities, great kitchen and the Hosts of the Year! Free farm eggs, lemon & kiwi fruit, free shuttle back to see glow worms at night and knowledge & directions like Google! Please support these guys, they are amazing!!
Linksview Holiday Park helped us a lot. We arrived late at night. The owner was waiting for us in the parking area in cold weather. He briefed us about all facilities in his holiday park and he guided us on how to use the facilities in our campervan. Also, we met a problem in our campervan and called him in the early morning. He rushed to the campsite to help us solve the problem in the campervan. Besides this, he treats guests with some fruit and eggs.
The campsite is quite new, clean and safe, we felt so lovely with the decoration and it was comfortable.
Warmest Host, Mr Kevin and with his awesome Holiday Park. We arrived in late night and he’s greet us at outside.
He also treat us many many fruit and allow we use his kitchen. The overall is excellent for us and thanks Mr Kevin kind hospitality ❤️ definitely will recommend if you looking some warmest holiday park at Hokitika ^_^
Cindy & Henry
Definitely one of the best camp sites in West Coast South Island! Feels like our second home in Hokitika.
Kevin is a fab and warming host, giving us the opportunity to connect with an experienced and knowledgable local, and took great care of us like friends.
It started with the best recommendation where to get delicious fish-n-chips in town, welcoming us with the best tasting golden kiwis we have ever had (we have tried plenty already during our 25 days travels here), NZ apples, clean/warming/spotless facilities, fresh eggs in the morning, coffee/tea, and even packed a huge bag of golden kiwis for us to enjoy on the journey!
If you get the chance, do not miss out this gem, and make sure to chat with Kevin. His advices/recommendations on where to go/visit is even better than the traveling books we have. We are now on the way to all the places he has introduced us to!
We would definitely stay longer if we have more days in the travels. A must and bookmark for our next visit to Hokitika!
Please take good care of the place and say hi to Kevin for us!
#AmazingExperience #ThankYouKevin #HomeInHokitika
This amazing new holiday park is in a lovely location close to the road but without even knowing. It’s a short drive from some lovely sites including Hokitika town and the Hokitika gorge isnt too far away either.
Lovely clean facilities really homely and unspoilt. The owners are also super helpful and very friendly, always happy to help and answer any questions.
