Cowin Road, Tasman, Nelson, South Island

DESCRIPTION:

The first camp at Anatori is a high camp by the beach which is popular but there isn’t much space. Right on the edge of the Anatori River Mouth it’s quite exposed and not really suitable for large vehicles.   If you travel a little further you will come to the river, where there is plenty of room. It’s  flat with easy access and has a safe, shallow river with a good swimming hole. This site is more sheltered, however apparently it’s prone to flooding during heavy rain.

To get to the end of the road, from the Anatori river, cross the ford and travel about 12km to the Turimawiwi River.

DESCRIPTION:

What a lovely setting this camp has, nestled in a sheltered valley with native bush and only a few minutes from Kaiteriteri beach. This peaceful park-like camp is only a short drive to the start of the Abel Tasman track, and you can enjoy kayaking, swimming and tramping from here. Lots of space to choose from; larger groups take advantage of the communal hall in one camping area over the summer period, while another is open all year round, or you can get back to basic camping in the wilderness area and experience long drop toilets. Plentiful ablutions no matter which area you decide to camp in, all spotlessly clean and of good quality. The covered deck where you can sit in the shade and watch the children on the playground, is just one of the family orientated facilities available here. There is also a comfortably furnished lounge and a good dining area, and fully automated laundry facilities. A children_s programme operates at Christmas time and there are other summer activities such as music, movies in the hall and a water slide. Also in summer only is an onsite cafe, a real fruit ice cream truck that also sells fruit and veges. So many things for children and their families to do here, volley ball, a beautifully made concrete table tennis table, paddock golf, petanque, or take a walk to the hustle and bustle on the main beach. There are plenty of sites, with and without power, and some special large ones for big rigs, as well as offering accommodation over winter. Your friendly hosts are Roger and Sue. All tent sites are from $25, powered sites are from $35, and your pets welcome from February to end of November
