Ben and Nicky were so welcoming. Basic site with toilets, shower in the sea! Toilets kept clean and well maintained. Thanks to you both .
Isolated and rugged with basic facilities- the perfect old school Kiwi camping experience. Loved it, will definitely go back.
Ben and Nicky were very welcoming and provided great clean facilities and a daily fun chat. The ace is an absolute gem with great swimming and fishing for the whole family. Not to many sandflies too
A long dirt road followed by a steep windy decline down to the farm was quickly forgotten after seeing the incredible scenery of the campground! (Or should I say sheep paddock) Cold showers aren’t so bad when you can warm up at such a beautiful beach!!
Cheap ($5 per adult), wide open space, clean basic facilities (toilets with flush, cold shower), beautiful sandy beach, shellfish around, good fishing. Friendly farm owner, nice walks and views, lots of sheep around and be aware of the weka birds, they will steal everything that you leave laying around.
Great little site. Secluded beach. Quiet, so so peaceful! Would achieve a 10 if it had hot showers but for $5 for an adult per night, it's really good. Some information on reaching the site though. The track is fine for larger vehicles, there's no race, take your time. We had a 6 berth, 7 metre van. Confident drivers would be better along the gravel road however. Some figures now... We averaged at 40kph from the site uphill along the gravel road, after this it get straighter for a little but and we achieved 50/60kph. On the winding parts of the paved road we averaged around 30kph. We passed a total of 37 vehicles along the whole distance of the road and 5 were along the gravel road, so it isn't busy. From the information board just after Linkwater it is, as it states, 68km which took is a total of 1hr 40mins. The gravel road is roughly 24km which took us about 37mins to achieve but remember this is the last part of the road to Titirangi. I hope this helps anyone considering using this site! We do recommend going to French Pass, further West, as the views are simply stunning!
A little paradise at the top of Queen Charlotte ! Really nice and quiet, clean toilets and cold shower which was really pleasant after a bath in the sea beyond the camping ground. A lot of cheeky birds but funny though.
We also had a great meal with the mussels we fished on the rocks on the right of the beach. We could have stayed there much longer! I recommend this place even if it takes a long time to get there by a dusty road.
The real McCoy kiwi camping ground- $5 a head, toilets and wash basins. Park in a paddock surrounded by sheep & weka. Fabulous white sand beautiful beach in the outer Sounds. A very long drive in to site along Kenepuru Sound Road and a very steep drop down a winding road to camp site. Not suitable for large motorhomes. Magnificent outer Sound views.
$5 for cold showers, clean toilets and beautiful view. On the beach.
Remote, well worth the gravel roads, lovely beach, clean site.
