I absolutely loved this place. In fact I ended up staying three nights instead of one because I was so comfortable and happy here. This is a surprising location as it sits right by an estuary and has waterfront cabins (I stayed in one of these) which makes you think: mosquitoes and sandflies heaven! And surprisingly it has none! I stayed in a cabin which had a comfortable doubled bed, a table with kettle and toaster and a fridge and my own personal view of the estuary. Beautiful! The place was very clean and the shared areas were kept clean too. As expected shared showers/toilets and kitchen/dining area with a lounge area too. The park is quiet and is like a natural bird reserve: I have never seen and heard so many different varieties of birds! There are bush and estuary walks straight off the camp as it is located in the Pounawea scenic reserve and these walks are really nice too. Lots of wild flowers too...It's also a perfect spot to explore the Catlins so all in all a brilliant experience and one I will do again if I ever come back to NZ. Highly recommended!
