We chose this place for its proximity to the Okarito Kiwi Tour, which we thoroughly enjoyed. It's a great value for the money, with an indoor eating and food preparation area (has fridge but no cooking facilities), public phone, and hot showers (coin operated, but well worth it). The indoor space allows one to get out of foul weather if necessary. We met really interesting people here and were glad for the respite from some of the really crowded Top 10 Holiday Parks. During our time there, we enjoyed walks on the beach and a day trip to Fran Josef. Tenters--be sure to choose a high spot in case of rain! It can get soggy.
