Camp was nice

Reviewed 08 Jul 2016

Camp was nice, WiFi was excellent. We had a powered hard site on the beach front which was nice as the beach is beautiful. Staff friendly. Facilities very clean and 5 min shower (which you start from the outside of the cabin) was enough. We heard the traffic from the road but slept without problem.

When we were there the weather was bad, but this seems to be the most beautiful campsite on the South Island anyway. $ 20 pp for a powered site, right next to the sea. Just perfect. Facilities were clean, super friendly staff and helped us with pots, great kitchen, a BBQ was missing and it was quite dark at night. All in all still great. We would have liked to stay longer, if the weather would have been better.

Awesome Kiwi Camping 5/5

Reviewed 30 Jan 2016

We went camping in tents and while it is the busy time of year there was plenty of space in this huge camp ground. Staff were friendly. The campgrounds were tidy and well maintained. Love the playground for children and the kitchen and bathrooms are nice and clean. Also love that they play music in the bathrooms and that there were enough well spaced rubbish bins all over the campground. The only thing we would do different next time is to choose a spot a bit further from the road as the big trucks at night was quite noisy when passing the campground but I am a light sleeper too. Over all a great experience and we will be back.

A large but well maintained campground on the edge of the beach south of Kaikoura. We pitched our tent on a beach front spot just over the dunes... you fall asleep to the sound of the waves. Blissful. There is plenty of room for everyone and it has quieter areas if you want to be away from everything. Plenty of access paths to get to the facility blocks etc. Playgrounds, flying fox and mini golf for the kids. Our neighbors got asked to turn their music down by the management and they are very vigilant about keeping the site tidy, recycling emptied, and facilities cleaned. Will definitely be going back!

“Sunrise, the ocean, whales, dolphins, seabirds and smooth, flat stones ...”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2015

4 of 5 stars Reviewed: We have just spent two idyllic days at this seaside motor camp with spectacular mountain views to the west and the ocean pounding on to the shore to the east, just 100m from our campsite. We gazed in awe as hundreds of dolphins played as they fed on shoals of fish, sea birds floated in formation to get their share, and whales surfaced in the distance. We walked the beach, across scattered flat round stones and coarse sand to near the water's edge. Undertow itself was spectacular too and a strong deterrent from swimming. But the sea was magnificent, pounding on to the beach. Walking was easy and the whole experience mesmerising. The sunrise on our second morning was unbelievably beautiful. Soft glow to brilliant! This campsite is one of the most memorable we have visited. Camping sites are large and the facilities clean and all we needed. We shall return whenever we travel south on the coast road.. This camping ground is easily missed so watch out for it, just a few kilometres south of Kaikoura. It is a wonderful place to stay!!!

Overnight stay on the beach

Reviewed 28 Oct 2015

Really enjoyed our stay, except for the traffic noise. It is on the main highway about five minutes south of Kaikoura. It was a very clean and tidy beach park although we were self sufficient we did use their showers and toilets. The staff, Eve, was friendly and efficient and didn't mind a chat. I wanted to photograph the sunrise over the ocean and wasn't disappointed. A bonus was the snow capped mountains which appeared very close. I also took advantage of the dark clear skies and got some snaps of the Milky Way. My word it was cold though! We would be happy to stay here again
