We spent five weeks touring the South Island of NZ in a camper and stayed at Curio Bay for one night on a powered site.
The sites themselves were fantastic - we had one set amongst the flax and it was completely private, we felt like we were the only people there! The site is also within easy walking distance to the beach for penguin viewing and the spectacular petrified forest.
The let down for us was that, whilst the site was fairly cheap at $27, showers were an additional cost and facilities were VERY basic. Basically showers were in a tin shed and toilets were typical bush style. We stayed in some pretty basic places on our travels but the showers here were probably the worst we came across, given the lovely surroundings it really would be worth putting some money towards an upgrade of the showers at least. Otherwise we had a pleasant stay but if it wasn't for the surrounding wildlife we probably wouldn't stay here again.More
