$6 per night and if you bring a gold pan and know how to use it you will definitely find some small nuggets in the riverbed.

Really nice spot! Toilets clean. Close to a few nice walking tracks. Bugs weren't too bad either. Would definitely stay again. Good place to stop for the night if heading to Arthur's pass or coming from the pass and don't want to go all the way to Hokitika.

This is how all doc sites should be ! Nice grassed sites with good basic facilities and well signed walks and plenty of birds hopping around .Beautiful spot a bit of a drive down tar seal for a change .

This spot is a little gem hidden away in the bush and close to Hokitika. It's a DOC site and only cost us $18 for a family of 4 to stay the night. The family enjoyed exploring the area and there are interesting walks located close to the site. The flush toilets look brand new and there are sinks as well but bring a torch to find your way in the dark. The glow worm dell in Hokitika (free) is only a 10 minute drive away and worth a visit. It's like being surrounded by little stars.

Really good toilets and dishwashing sinks. Plus a good shelter, but spot lacked character.

This is a good place to stop between Hokitika-Christchurch. It's an old gold mining town with some interesting information boards plus walks.
