What a spot! Easier to park the caravan then most other camp sites. Great facilities. Clean and well looked after. A stone throw (actually closer) to the beach to watch the sunset. Friendly chap who checked us in. This is a good, kiwi, no fuss, place to stay. We will be coming back for sure. Just come and see, it speaks for itself

Super useful and accurate

During our family holiday around the South Island in February we used this app every day. It was great to know that a quick glance at the map would show us all the camping sites on the road ahead.

And having the reviews gave us the confidence to choose the right path.

What’s amazing is the depth of info that you’ll find as you dig around. It’s not just campsites. Also great to find some of the hidden magic walks and locations that aren’t promoted by other apps.

Get this app and you'll get the most from your New Zealand travels.

Campsites missing

There are several campsites missing from this app. I have notified the developer of these but with no response. There are very few reviews and photos for a lot of the campsites and incorrect information. I have taken the time to add reviews and photos and these have never shown up on the app. Waste of time.

I’d advise using one of the more popular camping apps to ensure you are getting the correct / up to date information on the camp sites.
