Friendly Campground as described by our guests

Value for money camping ground situated centrally to several local attractions.

Great little stop over spot.

Good amenities next to a reserve with plenty of space. Small playground, kitchen and laundry. Handy to a school pool (summer season) and a tennis court for a small fee.

When heading south toward Timaru, the entrance is just 100m on the left after leaving Winchester. Located between the school and the showgrounds.

Hard to find in dark as co-ordinates provided are in correct but address on website is correct. Big open field. Owner very nice. Toilet block and showers basic but hot water for free and unlimited time! Paid about $20 total for two people powered in van. A good stop down the coast before heading down or into Tekapo area

Very basic facilities, but excellent value given the super cheap rates (about $12 per site, per night, from memory). Good supply of hot water to the showers :) and excellent chats with the lovely owners. Highly recommended for cheap no frills accommodation!

Nice tidy campground, $7 each for a powered site ($14 for 2 people), showers free & nice & hot. Amenities are oldish but really clean. Managers are friendly & up for a chat. Great place for a stopover.

New Owners have taken over since your stay, perhaps next time you are around you could give the place a second go

12$ for two people ! AMAZING !
Free hot shower, nice little kitchen where you understand the local history.
Plenty of spaces !! Better than some camping who charge you 12$ PER PERSON !
I really recommend !
