Can't fault this site. Nice walks from the site and really peaceful Toilets are really clean and decent facilities. Some of the local gold diggers are a bit rude but that's expected. (I was just interested in how things go on around that place).
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 103 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
I got lost trying to find this place, but I was cycling the West Coast Wilderness Trail so it required me to detour. Nice campsite with lots of trees for shelter and clean toilets. Arrive early to get yourself a good camping spot though.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
This place is a bit of a detour from the mainroad but worth it. Basic but well maintained DoC site. Has plenty of information on walks around the campground and the history of goldborough. There's some kind of shelter and pickinicktables you can use, flush toilets and drinking water. Private and more open spaces both. Enjoyed staying here. Be sure the walk the 20minute tunnel track further along the road, it is a nice easy walk.

Excellent DOC campsite. New toilet block with attached benches for food preparation & dishes. Cleaning and rubbish removal seem to be regular and effective. A lot of interesting walks around the campsite and safe mine tunnels (accessible from the road) about 1 km south of the site. The campsite is a logical stop-off point for people driving from Canterbury / Arthurs Pass to the Coast and in the summer holiday season the camp was quite busy with a lot of car-campers arriving in the late afternoon. The camping space is not huge and in wet weather many of the grassy tent sites become too boggy for use.
It was a bit wet, but great facilities - garbage, recycling, water. Has some nice hiking and is a great spot to stay at after Monteith's Brewing Company!
We at Rankers NZ, love to meet travellers on the road and share in some of the freedom. That's why Rankers NZ invites you to come and stay for free at our chill riverside overnight parking area in the Motueka Valley at the top of the South Island.
Nice site with new toilet block. Very friendly/pesky pair of wekas that hang around hoping for some food! Next to a river where you can go panning for gold. Can't say we found any but it was really good fun! Would recommend!
