301 Freedom Camping
South Island ▷ Southland ▷ Balclutha
Great quiet spot! Nice and flat with bays for campervans. Playground, toilets and large field for game of touch or a few hits of the golf balls. FREE WIFI!!! Set up and paid for by the locals, leave a donation, $10 is usual and well worth paying. Bit of a gravel road but easy to drive about 15 miles from Milton township. Definitely reccomend.
We couldn't access the camp (in June) because of a flood of the nearby river which drown the road halfway.

Very pot holed road to get down to it, wasn’t we’re the little map showed, if you get to the part where the road goes left and straight on...look right( it’s there) didn’t stay the night becasue we arrived when it was dark and scared ourslefs to a different place
Nice little spot on the edge of the domain, can imagine it being busy in summer but in may we were the only ones there, worth the drive
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Only 3 places. Come early because there is not a lot of other spots nearby... There is a long travel road to access.

Once you've turned off main road take the first turning right. Long but beautiful drive along gravel road. Don't be put off, we had the site to ourselves, 2 clean flushing toilets. 3 gravel areas for parking, large grass field to play out on. no beach view. Lovely beach walk though. Very peaceful.
Arrive before the sun sets. It was very dark when we arrived but had we arrived in daylight, it was well marked on the building. Beautiful night sky loaded with brilliant stars. Bathrooms were roomy and fairly clean, playground.
Very quiet spot, mid April we were the only ones there. Long gravel road out to pretty water views but not much else. Toilets weren't very pleasant but we had a nice quiet sleep.

Not really worth the drive out (13km unpaved road). Toilets where not very clean and beach while picturesque not suitable for swimming.
It was one of the best spots we stayed. Bit of a gravel road but totally OK in large Jucy Casa Motohome. The stars where just spectacular. It is a must stay, all the local holiday parks are pretty empty unless it is peak season in summer. We were there at the beginning of May.
Nice and quiet.
