Great facilities, clean, nice sea view, friendly and helpful staff. Right around the corner from Kahu Kayaks which we found a big advantage. Location of the campsite is perfect for exploring the park. Quails and Pukekos roam the site, which we enjoyed.

We were looking for a place to stay close to Abel Tasman and this was the perfect location. We were camping in our van and had a great view of both the mountains and the sea - just spectacular. The kitchen and the grill area was nice and it had probably some of the nicest showers/bathrooms from any camp we... More

We stayed here with Stray (bus company) for 4 nights. Stray only guaranteed 2 nights so we emailed the reception before hand (10 days before arrival) to ask if it was possible to stay 4 nights. Because it was christmas they told us it was only possible for 3 nights and they said that they would contact us if something... More

This was our first ever camping experience and we couldn't have asked for more. The barn offers amazing facilities and is extremely neat and clean. We stayed there for 3 nights in the first few days of January which is the peak season. There were a lot of other people camping there too but not even a single day did... More

Booked here for one night in the dorm before my Abel Tasman trek. The room was clean and comfortable and the facilities good, although the toilets and showers are in a separate building which is a pain if you need to go in the night. Nice enough hostel however the host/owner is not friendly at all! No smile or friendly... More

We stayed in campsite 33 for 3 nights. Direct view of the water and Abel Tasman, and a hidden hammock! The showers are awesome with windows facing the water. Kitchen facilities and public spaces were great. Such a great place for launching off into Abel Tasman.

Had a pleasant stay in the dorm. Clean rooms & the facilities were not far from the dorm. Kitchen, dining room and the TV room where all nearby. Loved the TV room the most. Lots of movie selection & a huge TV! Best of all Abel Tasman National Park entrance is just minutes away, making it the best place to... More

I stayed here with my Stray tour and I really enjoyed it. The dorms were newly built, spacious with very comfy beds (with featherdown duvets!) and very clean. The kitchen, diningroom and livingroom were situated in the barn. Very cosy and it kind of had a camping feeling to it: I loved it. In the livingroom you can watch a... More

We stayed there for two nights, before we went to the abel tasman and when we came back. It wasn't high season so the campground wasn't really crowded, there weren't many people at all. Besides the one busgroup at our second stay, but they were nice and not too many. The kitchen is nice. The tv-room is great, nice couches... More

We booked a special winter deal cabin for $45 for 2. As we arrived in the Barn it was sunny and warm but during the night it was really cold outside. But this was not really a problem. Not at all! Our cabin was new and pretty good isolated and they provided 2 hot water bottles for the night. All... More
