A camping site within old gold mining history, at the end of a long winding gravel road. There are plenty of places to camp out on the grass, as well as a few great spots underneath the beech trees. There is a beautiful river down below to swim in but be careful as there are cliffs everywhere. There are warning signs, watch your step.
South Island ▷ Marlborough ▷ Havelock
Right beside the river
Stayed there a night
And went to check out the river in the morning
Wasps and bee around but they didn't bother us
Rain water collected in the tank (boil before use)
Or use water from the river (fresh water)
$8 for adult
$ 4 for children
Under 4 are free i think.
Very nice campground with a lot of space. Lots of wasps and sandflies but all very low above the ground. Two toilets and water not suitable for drinking so be prepared. River with crystal clear water so kids can swim. No dump station.
Nice campsite next to a river. A lot of sandflies on the river. Gravel road. Quiet place.
Old goldmining area, access to water for searching for some gold, but bad roads to get there, not really for normal cars or campers.
It's a long drive off the main road but if you seek seclusion then it's worth it. Pelorus Camping area is lovely, but busy in the high season. So Butchers Flat is a worthy change up. Lots of space and a lovely river runs alongside.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
