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…

Fantastic place with lots of character. Kept very clean and well looked after. The staff twice went the extra mile to make sure I had a great time.

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

Small and well kept spot. Kitchen is well stocked with crockery and cutlery. Bathrooms were clean and warm. Lovely gardens and very close to the beach. Hosts were helpful and friendly. Close to the boulders and penguins and to town.

What a gem!
Got to this place late at night in the dark. Office was closed but instructions outside on how to check in (they still have a honesty box!). Found a great spot by the beach on the non powered sites. In the morning woke up to birdsong and seaviews! Walked to the kitchen in the morning and was greeted by the very friendly owner Alex. He immediately asked if we had a good night and had found all the facilities. Gave us a rundown on what to do and see around the place (boulders, penguins, shag point...). Great little camp, very friendly owners and plenty to do in the surroundings. Ended up staying 3 nights instead of one!
