Little River Campground

287a Okuti Valley Road Little River 7591

Pet Friendly Carpark access

Affordable accommodation on Banks Peninsula, 30mins to Akaroa. Closed from 23 April - 1 October 2018. The Gateway to Banks Peninsula we offer much more than a holiday park. Our campground is rated highly by bookit customers and on line reviews like Trip Advisor and camping apps . Please read on so you know what to expect.

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. Eco, dry composting toilets, with 3 hot showers (gold coin appreciated). Free Wifi hotspot (conditions apply- no games or downloads). Sunny or shady sites and on arrival choose the most suitable available. 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.

Our covered kitchen area for campers has a fridge/freezer, toaster, jug, gas hobs and microwave. 3 sinks with hot and cold water for dishes.
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 including hot showers there are powered sites for camper-vans, cabins and camp areas. Basic facilities.

    When you stay on the Banks Peninsula, you have to got to Little River Campground! Great kitchen, very nice lavatories (eco-toilet, high pressure shower with hot water, beautiful sinks (I know that sounds strange but there are even fresh flowers)), amazing site with a lot of lovely details. The surrounding area is interesting, too, with an abandoned movie set, a mountain swing, etc.
