Very nice campsite!
19 $ pp - unpowered. All what you need: free hot showers, clean toilets, big kitchen with freezer and fridge, laundry (4$) and unlimited WiFi! We stay here before taking the ferry to Wellington. Would definitely recommend this place :)

Lovely site with friendly staff. Clean kitchen & bathrooms. Lovely hot unlimited showers. Comfy outdoor seating; TV room & indoor dining area to sit as a change from camper van. Easy walk to bar/ restaurant with nice food. Would say one of the best that we stayed at in South Island.

Lovely campground with everything you need! The facilities were clean and well maintained as was the kitchen and bbq station. Perfect place before or after taking the ferry or if you want to visit Picton.
Many options for children as well (playground, pool, rebounder).

Stayed here on the 6 March 2020 after catching the ferry from Wellington. Great campground with lots of space, shady trees or open sunny spots. Reasonable price for powered site. Free 5 gig wifi, really lovely friendly host. Toilets are clean and very well maintained. Didn’t use the kitchen as I have my own so didn’t check that out. We really enjoyed this campground will be staying here again for sure.

Awesome campground and facilities. Quiet and wasn’t too busy. I decided to spend 5 nights here.
The only drawback, is that on does need to use one’s transportation system for groceries and errands. But the wine tour company will come to get you there.
