This is the best DOC campground I've ever been to in NZ. It's a massive flat section, good clear subdivisions, and maintained lawns and trees. Toilets are numerous, tidy, spacious and clean, with cold showers (but everything set for your solar shower to be hung). The beach is outstanding, vast and orangey, no litter, no stones. There's plenty of day-trip...

We stayed here for one night and it was pretty nice for a DOC campground. Clean, flush toilets. Cold showers, but enclosed and spacious. Access to beach and hikes from the campground. Ranger does come out and check in the morning so make sure you register and pay!

This is the most peaceful, quiet camping ground i have been to. It is huge with plenty of choice where you set up camp. Limited facilities so you need to be self sufficient. There are toilets and drinking water available. This is one of New Zealand's most beautiful beaches with golden sand and abundant birds with great day walks.

Day-tripped over to Totaranui Beach early in the morning which was wise because the roads are gravel and very narrow on some turns which would be terrifying if there was another car coming towards you. We made it nice and early and the sun was up and sunny. The others went to the DOC hutt to check the weather and...

The most beautiful beaches in NZ and the only road access point into Abel Tasman National Park. Campground very spacious. Flushing toilets and basic amenities. Hot water showers would be a lovely addition. Back to basics camping. We can't wait to go again.

This a great doc campground I love it especially because it is by the amazing beach and this campground has a kitchen so you can cook you food.the kitchen does not have a oven so you have to cook your food by a camp fire.in conclusion I would definitely recommend for you to come here to this amazing campground.

We came here for the day to enjoy the beach and picnic. I could see why the campground would be popular. There is a boat launch, a water taxi and ferry stop here to pick up and drop off people who either camp here, or like us, spend the day on the beach. We saw people with small sail boats...

We stayed there for a week with two small kids - really enjoyed the place and the surrounding Abel Tasman National park. Plenty of things to do also with kids :-). If you prefer warm showers bring your solar shower - and plenty of sunscreen and anti sandfly magic!
