This holiday park is a big one and is has spacious powered sites and 3 facility buildings , direct access to the beach and a good convenience shop at the entrance. Facility rooms were very clean and in a tip top condition. For showering you have to pay 50 cents for 6 minutes or so. Internet is available through IAC and IKS. This park is ideal for trips to the ABel Tasman park and it has a playground for children, and the beach is great if there is no high tide. Liked it here very much! Takaka is close by with a 10 min.drive.

Friendly staff were really helpful, had a great camp site on the beach for ten days. Clean well looked after facilities. Close to Takaka that has good coffee (check out the Dangerous Kitchen) and full supermarket. Safe family friendly beach. Nearby Abel Tasman NP has great walks etc. Well worth the effort. As the locals say "it's just a hill, get over it!". And of course close to the institution that is the Mussel Inn (check out the local brews).

Such a lovely place for a camp ground. The camp ground is in a beautiful location, right by the Pohara beach. All the amenities were clean and well maintained. It's clearly a family friendly camp ground, with lots of very happy people there when we were.

We were welcomed from the very beginning and were given a lovely site on the beachfront. When we discovered we couldn't get TV reception the management were on to it - a cold beer courtesy of the manager, a change of site with A1 tv reception ... they went beyond the call of duty to ensure we were totally satisfied. We can not speak highly enough of the management and their camp. Top notch facilities - clean and well maintained. We will fully recommend this Top 10 park. Well done team.

Spread along a magnificent beach on Golden Bay, this 5 hectare, very well maintained holiday park has something for everyone: tent and campvan sites, motel units, and large cabins in a large variety of configurations and for every budget.
We stayed in a self-contained unit with a view of the sea. On arrival, we were immediately so impressed with the location and facilities that we extended our stay by a few days.
Well-kept facilities by a friendly and helpful staff include laundry, kitchen, boat ramp, internet, and the ubiquitous bbq. Within easy walking are several restaurants, and a great blocart rental (land yacht) on the beach. Abel Tasman Park, Farewell Spit and any number of fabulous beaches and tracks are within easy reach.
But we could have stayed here and just enjoyed the stay without going anywhere or doing anything. Our cabin was cosy and well-appointed. We could watch the waves from our comfortable bed or anywhere in the cabin. It is the kind of place where one could stay just for the sake of staying there.

We spent two nights at Pohara in a self contained unit overlooking the beach. Friendly welcome at reception and the unit was well appointed and exactly what we needed.

Lovely campground with so much room and lots of space between cabins so you have peace and quiet in the evening to sleep.

Room Tip: The self contained units by the beach are superb
