This is a Hurunui Council campsite situated at Amberley Beach. The campsite is split into two areas with a mixture of powered and non powered sites, toilets, caravan/camper van waste dump station, BBQ’s, childrens playground, tennis court and backboards - the primo family place.

There is an honesty box system for people to pay their fees - please do as it is so cheap to stay here and it would be great to keep it this way!

Flat lawn area, only few toilets, no showers, dumpstation available.
Single highlight is the beachfront with kilometers of walks in both directions. Perfect for dog-owners!

Small/medium campsite with clean toilets, dump station and water. All the basics. Nice quiet location next to the beach. Choose your own location so you can be as social or as private as you want! Supermarket down the road. Highly recommended to avoid the tourist trap!

A very quiet place, cheap as $5 for unpowered spot 1 person/van. Got busier as the evening came on so for the spot you want i’d reconmend pilling in by 6pm latest. There are two ends (North and South). Close to beach and some nice little walks. Toilets clean but overall the place is a little outdated however a cheap stay so no complaints.
