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.

This camp is great right by the sea and short walk to the boulders the facilities are tidy and clean and you have non powered sites which have more room than the powered sites .the people that stay here are all very friendly.
Alex and Mel that run the camp are very friendly and helpful and do a wonderful job running it, we love staying here thankyou so much Alex and Mel can't wait till our next visit .

Lovely place at the beach. Friendly owners and much space at the unpowered campsite. The powered site is a bit smaller.
Really friendly and helpful stuff!
Nice, quiet place with clean bathrooms (showers for free but time-limited) and kitchen.
Nice beach-walk to the boulders.
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.

$36 for a powered site (2 persons). A small but cosy campsite. Cute kitchen with everything. No free wifi. Clean toilet. Host is nice and recommended the spots to visit nearby.
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!
CLOSED FOR WINTER UNTIL SEPTEMBER☺
