Get amongst the remote southern reaches of NZ's Catlins coast. Good as gold!
This is a council designated campsite. Follow the signs to Slope Point (New Zealands most southern point), turn off onto Weir Road and drive to the estury. A great view.

Nice spot close to water, it’s large enough for a lot of campers, tents, caravans and Larger motor homes- it does fill up though. There is a long drop style toilet and a outdoor tap and bench, very wet and muddy around it. Watch out for sand flies in the evenings. The wee beach behind the site it calm and you can sit under the tree and watch the tide go right out. It would be a good swimming spot in the heat of summer!
Large grassed area which everyone parked around the perimeter. If there were more people they would have had to park in the middle but lots of room. Self contained so didn’t use the toilet nor the sink. Nice and quiet. The tide went out and lots of beach to stroll around: even if the tide came in it didn’t look like it would get very deep.

Standard free campsite -- Long drop toilet, (non-drinkable) tap and sink. The night we stayed was pretty windy but the camp site is a bit sheltered. The area was fairly full by night time, when we arrived lat afternoon it was maybe three quarters full. It's 2km up a dirt road but the rest is sealed (think the road is newly surfaced as most of our maps had it marked as dirt).
Cool as spot in the Catlins and free non self contained!! Great location and worth checking out the area
Super cool spot! Lots of people, but a sink to do dishes (I probably wouldn’t drink the water), a toilet, beautiful sunset, and the ocean is very near the campsite and there are tons of cute little crabs to watch run around!
Quite small campsite, it got crowded but everyone still found a spot. Clean long drop toilet and a sink for the dishes.
We weren’t sold on this spot—super crowded that we were confused if we were even in the right spot. Nice and quiet rest though!
Great spot for free. Heaps of space. Clean long drop. Water and sink for dish washing.
Nice place good shade and lots of room. Not so good after lots of rain.
Small one... don't have access to the beach, toilets are clean, it's very small and there were already 5 vans.
Campsite is a little bit retired from the main road but nice. Big large grassy area with trees and inlet behind. Super cool for a walkway. Protect and respect nature!
