I stopped at several places in Golden Bay, but this was my favorite. It's right on the beach between Takaka and Collingwood, and just perfect. It's a km or so off the 'main' road, and there are no street lights or traffic noise, just the birds and the waves. If you had small children it would be ideal for summer... More

We have just returned from staying in one of the beach houses. The house itself was modern, well fitted out and very functional. We made the most of our BBQ on the deck and you are literally right on the beach. We cannot recommend this place enough. It was private and quiet with just the sounds of waves. We loved... More

We spent just one night in the park. We paid $60 for a cabin for 2. The staff were really nice, but what we got for this money was really redicolous. The showers and toilets were closed and the kitchen was freezing cold inside, that it was nearly impossible to cook a meal. The room itself had a heater and... More

Friendly staff who were more than helpful. It wasnt peak time when we went so they were more than happy for us to choose our spot. Amazing location, close walk to a lovely beach which was perfect for paddle boarding. Lovely sunrise views and nice sheltered spot. Facilities were good. Basic but nice and clean. Showers were 50 cents for... More

My wife and I spent 9 fabulous nights in our tent at this wonderful holiday park during mid February. Our site was conveniently place for the morning sun and sheltered from any prevailing wind & with a view to the sea. The grounds and amenities were very clean and tidy . Takaka and Collingwood were within easy driving distance for... More

We've stayed here last year and had an equally fantastic time again this year. The location is fantastic, being right on the beach and only a short drive from lots of equally special places. The little river that runs beside the camp is an excellent place for kids to play. The campsites are large and the whole place feels spacious... More

We camped here as Pohara beach camp was full. Not sure how this camp rates itself 3.5 stars or manages to charge as much or more for a tent site as some pretty amazing places like the Kaiteriteri camp on a gorgeous beach with great facilities or Alpine Pacific in Kaikoura or Akaroa camp to name a few with great...

My husband and I stayed here years ago and enjoyed it despite the basic facilities. The location is lovely. Went back this time and encountered a nasty, angry owner and tired-looking facilities. I guess that's why he doesn't want people to have a look at the campground before they hand over their cash. Not only did he scream at us,... More

I apologise that you feel you were treated badly however at this time of the year we have a large number of people who don't read our signs about reporting to the office prior to entering the park. We have a policy in place to protect campers who are staying with us so that we know at all times who... More

We camped here during the Xmas/New Year break for 2 weeks. Even though this camping ground is rated only 3 1/2 stars we couldn't have asked for more. A private beach on the doorstep, good and clean facilities, and large camp sites with plenty of space. The camp managers are very friendly and so helpful. This would be our best... More
