The Waihora Park Domain is a very peaceful setting in Motukarara, near Banks Penisula on the way out to Akaroa. There is a children's playground with a tree hut and a real lifeboat and plenty of room to set up your space. A free gas BBQ is also available. This is a pet friendly campsite with basic facilities available. It is also very close to the start of the Rail Trail to Little River. No bookings are required but please bring correct change ($10/site per night). For more information phone (03)3297818. If you enjoy your stay - please leave a review on 'Rankers'.

Lovely open space with benches, recycling facilities and bins, clean toilet block (if slightly rough around the edges), and good shelter from the wind! Absolute bargain at $10 per vehicle, a great place to stop on the beautiful Banks Peninsula.
Awesome campsite- clean toilets with paper and sanitiser . $10/ vehicle ! Awesome
Stunning campsite with a nice children's play ground. Facilities are very basic but clean. No showers yet. Worthwhile for $10/night. Bring cash for the honesty box.
Nice spot, very spacious! Clean toilets and bins for garbage.
Very spacious community owned site. Flat and well drained there's heaps of space for all manner of running about and games. There's a nice children's playground in one corner. It has an adequate toilet and a couple of water taps but that's it. No mobile data could be had. Only $10 per night paid into an honesty box.
Why would you? It's a handy stopover between Banks Peninsula and Christchurch; quiet, roomy and relaxing; no commercial distractions nearby; only $10 per night.
Why wouldn't you? None of the facilities you'd expect on a commercial site. No data and no shops nearby.
Mark-downs? At $10 per night it would hardly be fair to complain.
Return? Yes I would return.
Great place to stay. Heaps of space to camp, toilets old but clean. Free gas bbqs, seating and a great play ground for the kids. Will be staying there again. Life boat has been fenced off.
Loved this campsite - it is cheap and cheerful with good clean bathroom facilities for an evening or two there. There is not much else in the areaso be prepared to stay on site and bring your own food/water! Plenty of options to set up under - shade, sun, away from wind etc. An easy drive to Christchurch, Akaroa or anywhere south
Gorgeous spot! Huge space for games and the gardens are fun to explore. We made the mistake of staying the night before a racing meet so sunday morning was alive and kicking with the sounds of horseraces but to be fair the kids loved that! Toilets are exceptionally clean, drinking water, free bbq and rubbish bins!! All for $10 a site!! The playground is great entertainment for the kids but the treehut is condemned unfortunatelyi Definitely recommend
