Myself and my girlfriend were touring New Zealand in a camper and due to it being small and having no real facilities we booked all our campsites in advance, I booked this one through AA travel site and either the site or the campsite didn't actually book this as I received no confirmation email and luckily no money actually went out so I don't know what happened there, but due to this I contacted the campsite directly by email, first to check if they had got a booking under my name and once finding out they hadn't I booked directly.
Upon arrival several weeks later they had no trace of me ever booking with them or even contacting them at all, not a great start! Luckily it was like absolutely empty, which left it with a real creepy feeling being like the only ones there, also there were no lights located around the site so walking over the boggy grass was very entertaining!! Kitchen facilities were average but the showers were absolutely awful! This may have been the cheapest campsite we could find close to christchurch but I have never had to pay for a shower and it never even really warm up!! Such a rip off! The shower itself was really dark and dirty and people could see over the door and in when walking past! Never will I go back here again!
