Information

We are a little, unique and typical kiwi beach camping ground with lots of character. Enjoy camping by the sea, viewing dolphins and penguins nearby and the amazing Moeraki Boulders. Awesome cafe, famous fish and chips, supermarket just 250m away.

Camp in our scenic reserve with beach access, extensive bird and marine life, the Moeraki Boulders a short stroll away and star gazing at night.

Insiders have been flocking to beautiful Hampden Beach since many generations to enjoy the safe swimming beach or kayak the lagoon. And also the fishing in the bay is awesome.

You might see the endemic hector dolphin in the bay and a leisurely stroll along the beach (30 minutes) will take you to the ancient and mystic Moeraki Boulders.

Ride a bike to the lighthouse (about 8 km one way) and see the beautiful coast as well as the yellow eyed penguin and seal colony... you might even find yourself on your own – sorry, no tourist crowds here!

It is also possible to drive to the yellow eyed penguin colony in a camper van.

Famous 'Fleurs Place' restaurant and the fishing ramp are only 5km from the camp at Moeraki Village. And in walking distance (250m) there is Lockies world famous fish and chips, 'Vanessas' superb cafe and breakfast, Hampdens very own 'fine fare supermarket' with the best ice-cream deal in NZ! For fuel there is a gas station and... the Hampden Tavern.

Very nice camping spot, grassy generous sites and everything is very clean and well looked after. Super friendly hosts with tips for local attractions, saw three penguins and lots of seals <3.
The only downside was the showers, which were free (limited to six minutes) but not very hot. We might be a bit more sensitive because we're from the tropics but when it's only 14° outside and very windy as well, a satisfying shower needs to be a little bit hotter.

Good place to stay with good facilities, close to the beach. For kids, there is a good size play area outside the kitchen with a trampoline wee bikes and a boat to play in.
Only downside for us was having to camp in the area across the road from the main area, which meant our 3yo had to be accompanied. We could have camped in the area behind the office, but it was open to the road and didn't seem like a good idea.

Lovely place at the beach. Friendly owners and much space at the unpowered campsite. The powered site is a bit smaller.
Highly recommended!
