Note: During the Bay Dreams Festival (3-4 January 2020) we are adjusting our rates to pay for added security and facilities. Non-power camping will be available for $20 per person.

The most affordable campground in Nelson to suit your budget.


At the Maitai Valley Motor Camp, we offer both non-powered and powered camping sites, as well as cabins for rental. All include free use of our kitchen and toilets. With our a la carte options, we allow you the flexibility to customize your stay in a way that suits you.


Looking to power off and enjoy nature?

Our unpowered sites are just for you. Pick a patch just about anywhere you like and you are set.

Note: If you have electronics and you want them charged up, take them to the office and we will get you squared away.
