What a beautiful little Campsite! Everything was so clean and hygienic. The little Livingroom was very cozy. And we payed out of the main season just $12 per Person per night. Unbeatable! The Owners were very friendly and helpful. We felt very welcome and we would definitely come back! :-)

This is a great campsite in a little town a long way from anywhere else! Cost $30 for 2 adults and a 12 year old. All the facilities, good showers and everything was clean. The guy at reception was friendly and they sold hot food in the cabin until 9.30pm for anyone who didn’t fancy cooking. The rest of the town was nice and it had a decent pub.

Cute little campground, close to highway yet the noise doesn’t reach. Super clean facilities. Free wifi. Not a lot of spots so I recommend calling them. Staff real nice too! Paid 12$ pp for unpowered site

Beautiful tranquil setting. Off the beaten track yet so convenient. Small and wonderfully quiet. Very friendly welcome. Great facilities. All very clean. Well kitted kitchen, dining area and lovely relaxing lounge area with TV should you desire. Short stroll into village brings you to a temporary pub which is trying to make a living after hotel damaged in 2016 quake. Excellent rates. $16 for full powered site. Includes 1GB WiFi per day. I’d say this is one of the best sites in South Island.

Great owner, facilities are clean and very good for what you pay for. One of the most welcoming campsites and definitely very happy with the whole experience. Public lounge and kitchen are definitely kept clean and tidy.

The site was beautiful! So peaceful and the customer service was beyond our expectations. The owners were amazingly helpful and lovely. The property has a few farm animals and a sweet little park for kids to play on. Definitely our favourite campsite so far!
