Handy location on the peninsula. Sites spacious and grassy however there was not much for the kids to do. The staff were friendly, as was the free hour of wireless internet. Laundry was well equipped and machines worked well.

We had 2 nights here and enjoyed it. The Otago Peninsular is amazing with a lovely relaxed feel yet so close to Dunedin. The bathrooms are a bit old but they're fine. Laundry great. The site is small so it's quiet and feels like you're in a secluded country spot - yet 3 minute walk down to the village pub... More

I stayed here for 1 night in March with my husband on a powered site. The campsite is very small but the facilities are clean and showers are free with plenty of hot water. It is the closest campsite we could find to explore the Otago Peninsula where there is the most amazing wildlife. I would highly recommend staying here... More

This is the smallest camping ground we stayed at in New Zealand, but given that it is on the Otago Peninsula, that isn't surprising. Not much more than 100 m long, in two levels; 16 powered large camper-van sites on the road level, 6 smaller sites and 8 cabins above. Tent sites on the other side of the reception/toilets/kitchen building... More

.... on the Otago peninsula itself then we probably would not have stayed here. Having read reviews on Tripadvisor beforehand, our expectations were managed upfront. From the time we arrived, the place felt rather uninviting. Compared to what we had enjoyed at many other holiday parks in NZ, the facilities were rather average and the kitchen was quite small (waste... More

The park is situated down a small lane way and surrounded by trees which makes it very peaceful. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. The toilets and showers were very clean. However my youngest found the spray of the shower too strong. It is in a convenient place close to penguin place and the royal albatross centre. I would... More

While the tent sites are rather small, cramped-feeling, and offer little privacy from the next site over, there is plenty of green space to comfortably pitch a tent. Kitchen facilities were a little small, but bathrooms were large and well-equipped. Owner/Operator was very friendly and welcoming. Due to its location on the Otago Peninsula, it makes for a great place... More

We chose to stay in the cabins with full kitchen and separate bedroom. They are quite cute and cleverly designed with lots of space. If I was to do it again I would just get the studio which doesn't have a full kitchen but has microwave etc. and the I could eat in the delightful restaurant in the village. Portobello... More
