A classic Kiwi campground in the peaceful Okuti Valley, 45mins from Christchurch. Camping like it use to be. Rustic cabins, powered and tent sites for camper vans, caravans and secluded tent sites.

Over busy times sites can be very snug. Patience is asked for over busy periods, as our facilities are limited. The experience is more about the native habitat than the luxuries of some holiday park chain. They don't usually have scary slippery slides, giant swings or rivers and native bush reserve! The camp is perfect for kids to get back to nature, play on the in-ground trampoline or have a kick around. Parking is in the carpark, or on the road at very busy times to keep the camp area safer for kids and to make the camp area more pleasant.

Fees from $15/adult, $10 kids under 14- and from $75 for a cabin. Ideal for a group and can be cheaper than a dorm room at a backpackers. Unique 7.5h park like, riverside setting with native forest walks and picturesque views. Ideal for 'off the beaten track' explorers wanting to find the real NZ. Local knowledge on the best beaches, surf and activities. From $15/adult. There are powered sites for camper-vans, cabins and camp areas. Back to Nature camping.
