Little River Campground and Manaia Native Habitat

Set in the secluded Okuti Valley only 45 minutes from Christchurch City. A classic Kiwi campground, like they use to be.

We have 5 hectares of native bush with silver ferns, the iconic logo of all sporting teams from New Zealand. The Manaia Native Habitat has mature trees such as totara and matai and birds including bellbirds, fantails, wood pigeons and a visiting tui.

Picnic under the 100 year old walnut trees. Stay in your campervan, tent or rent a cabin. Private camp areas for group bookings. For kids there is a playground and exploring the forest. Our Scary Slippery Slides are fun for all ages (when open). A peaceful, laid back alternative to busy holiday parks. Powered sites beside the Okuti River.
