Large area, very sheltered with loads of space underneath the trees for camping and positioned right next to the Motueka River. Good swimming and a haven for NZ lifestylers.
This site is clean (carry out your own rubbish) and is a self contained area only. It is easily accessable for large vehicles. No fires.

Beautiful spot. Close to Motueka. Free toilet so both self-contained and non self-contained vehicles are welcome.

Free for vehicles. Large area covered with lots of trees. Very nice river next to it. Close to highway, so a bit of noise, but wasn't an issue. If you arrive in the dark DO NOT head straight towards river after turning off of hi-way without 4-wheel drive, it was very muddy and I almost made that mistake! Only a couple other vehicles in April. Long drop toilet was fairly old and one of the least nice in our NZ trip. We are also certain that the Camping NZ app had marked this place in the wrong location. The actual campground was a few Kms south and on the other side of the hi-way from the marked location on the app. So if arriving late, be aware of that! Nice campground!

A calm place even though it is near the road. Lots of sand flies. It's free.

Free basic campground right off the highway. We found plenty of space to park and enjoyed walking along the river. Great place to stop when driving between the West Coast and Nelson.
