What a place! Not too far off the main road, down a narrow unsealed section - watch out for sheep. Beautiful beach, vast grassy areas, seals, striking cliffs as well as a good surf beach. The famous Purakaunui Falls are not far away. This camp site is definately well worth the trip.

Camp on the coast. Striking cliff faces can be seen from the campsite and Purakaunui Falls are not far. There is a good surf beach to the south of the camp. Cosgrove Island, a wildlife refuge, is off the coast and Jacks Blowhole is 10 km to the north.

Stunning view! Majestic cliffs and ruff sea. Camping area is very big, was quit a few vehicles here, 20-25. But still lots of space. Saw 2 sea lions hanging out in the sand dunes.

At the end of a gravel road, plenty of space for everyone, drop toilets, everyone was super friendly, our pooches loved it just as much as we did. Amazing spot for the sunrise and playing at the beach! Definitely coming back here.

Best campsite in the Catlins ! Sheltered from the southerly winds and first to see the sun ! Nice to watch the seals play on the beach!
Spectacular location! It was dreamy to wake up next to the beach and the gorgeous ocean. The site was a little busy, but everyone was respectful and outside having a great time! Facilities were simple, but well kept.
Loads of space. Right by the beach. Excellent toilets. Water supply (not drinking water). Lots of very happy dogs around. Seems to be a haven for pets. Totally recommend.
It's directly at the beach, clean long drop toilets and water supply. Don't park on the grass after lots of rain, it can get very muddy. No service at all and a long gravel road to the campsite but it's worth the view.
Quite a narrow unsealed drive approaching the Bay. Lovely views of the bay but difficult to find a flat spot.
Great coastal view. Unfortunately sheep may safely graze, and the ground was thick with fresh evidence. Several morons on dirts bikes raced on the beach all through the evening. Very clean toilets.
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 😍
