Travelling around the South Island we were told not to stay at this camp as the facilities were very poor. However we looked at later reviews and saw that there was a new ablution block so decided to stay. Unfortunately we didn't ask to have...More

Some years ago Curio Bay must have been a insider tip, but no longer. The Curio Bay Holiday Park has got a huge area between bushes close to the bay. Toilets and showers are clean and located in new containers.

We were driving the Southern scenic route and saw the Curio Bay Camp Ground. We are not campers but like beautiful scenery. This camp ground did not disappoint. You can drive your car right up to Porpoise Bay to enjoy the view. Awesome. The wind...More
We camped here in November while bicycle touring around the Catlins. The weather was very wet, cold and windy and the owner advised us to camp in the day shelter for the night which was much appreciated. The facilities (kitchen and shower) were basic but...More
Is the Curio Bay Camping Ground the same place as Curio Bay Holiday Park? We are looking to stay at the campground nearest to the penguins, the one that is part of the Catlins Community Trust (I think). We will be in a camper van. Do we need or can we get a reservation (Sat night March 4). Thank you! Kathy

Hi there, I'm sorry I missed your question. I actually have no idea about whether they are two separate grounds but we stayed at the one closest to the petrified Forest where the penguins are so assume they are the same. We didn't book but then I'm not sure whether it's busier for the camper vans - we were in a tent so just tried our luck and it worked out. Perhaps email them and query but it was a beautiful spot and I'd highly recommend it. Have a wonderful holiday :)
