Camp At The Barn

Powered and Non-Powered Campsites at the Start of the Abel Tasman

Cool Camping at the The Barn

Some of the very best campsites are found right here at The Barn. We look to create a fun, inviting environment for all ages to enjoy camping in such a beautiful part of the country. We fully embrace a good night’s sleep, while encouraging everyone to have a good time and experience while camping at The Barn. 

Our campground looks out over Tasman Bay, Fisherman Island, and overlooks the Abel Tasman walking track. Sit back and watch the sunrise and set and the people heading off into the Abel Tasman as the ocean rises and falls.

We have a mix of powered and non-powered sites for you to choose from. You can choose to either park up, or pitch your tent.

The Barn is pet friendly to friendly pets. If you do decide to bring them, then they must remain on a leash at all times. If you don’t think your pet will be comfortable in a communal setting then please leave them at home. The enjoyment of other guests is a higher priority than another person’s pet.

Pet Friendly to Friendly Pets

The Barn is a pretty relaxed and friendly space. As such we love it if you bring along your furry buddy. However, we are only friendly to friendly pets. If your animal is causing disturbance to other guests then we may have to take action. You need to make the call if your pet is suitable in general to be around strangers and also suitable for the time of year and how busy it is. We are not liable for your pet behaving obnoxiously, nor are other guests. As such, we reserve all rights to remedy any situation as we see fit.

We would love to expand the range of pets we have to visit. There will be a prize at the end of the 2022 summer for the best pet. We have paddocks if you want to bring along something larger, maybe call ahead for that one!

Games, Food and the Odd Outdoor Movie Night!

We have a selection of games like Table Tennis, Pool, Volley Ball, Kubbs, Connect Four, Kids Playground and more.

A Food Trailer is coming to the Barn this summer! We are excited to offer a range of snacks and foods on site.

Every now and again we put on an outdoor movie. Just let us know if you are interested in a good night!

A Couple Quick Features

Three Communal Kitchens

Choose from the Three kitchens that all provide something different. The Camp Kitchen is small and rustic with great views out over the Campground and Ocean. The Barn is fully stocked and has the homely vibe that everyone loves. The Big Kitchen is just that, great for large families or groups to gather together for a meal.

We also have a fully stocked kitchen available for indoor and outdoor fires, great communal areas, a small shop, a playground, and games for all to enjoy.

We image a world far beyond the empty mundane campground and would love you to be a part of it.
