Access to the grassed area will be restricted over the winter months to protect the turf from vehicle damage. There will only be limited parking available in the non-self-contained area during this time.
If you are in a self-contained, non self-contained vehicle or a tent then you are welcome to stay here. Maps showing designated camping areas are shown on site.
There are three separate areas at Warrington to segregate the different user groups. The areas are for those camping with tents, those with certified self-contained vehicles and those with non-certified self-contained vehicles.
There are limited spaces for each user group in these areas and enforcement will be operational for vehicles outside of the designated areas.
Vehicle noise and lights can disrupt sleep, so please show consideration to local residents and other campers by arriving at the site before 10pm. Please also respect our environment by using the rubbish and toilet facilities provided.

Lot of space, 5 minutes walk to a wonderful beach. Quiet.
Nice place nearby the coast. You can have great walks at the beach. For non self-contained only a few campsites available and you stand very close together like on a car park. Toilets and sinks for washing the dishes are good. There are some tables where we cooked and had dinner.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 74 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Great free spot, with portable toilets and close to dunedin.
Fantastic free campsite with drinking water, bins and toilets. Few minutes walk to the beach. Lots of space but filled up quickly in the summer so park close together and don't arrive too late!
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
A lot of places at the campsite. The toilet is a clean public toilet. When we were there the toilet paper was finished so if you want it be sure to bring your own. This is one of the best free campsites we had.
Tents to the playground end and self contained vans to the far end ensure our sea lion mother and baby are not disturbed. Sea lions hate “banging” e.g. tent pegs being hammered in - sea lions are highly endangered, are most vulnerable when giving birth and are dangerous wild animals - stay at least 20m away - your choice of tent site can support retention of our national treasure, thank you.
Nice location with clean toilets. In self contained van and could not get access to water tap to fill tank. very busy with around 60 vehicles but no problems and little noise. Fine place to stop for a night and right on the beach.
Nice spot with basic toilets at the beginning of the place. Because it's so spacious there were also two portaloos on the other end, both clean and good to use. There is a small way with access to the beach.
Only negative point is that there are far to many people camping there, suppose it's because it's the only free place for non-self contained for a while. So it was quite noisy and even in the middle of the night there were still new arrivals.
Convenient spot, nice to have a free site with plenty of clean toilets. It's under renovation so they're just port-a-potties for now, but totally fine. The site itself isn't particularly picturesque, but it's nice to be a five minute walk from the pretty beach. The current site is not very big, and there were 30 campervans/tents set up, so everyone was pretty close together. But that might be assuaged when the rest of it is opened up.
Great location just 15 minutes from Dunedin. Wonderful beach just few metres away. Temporary toilets very clean and hygienic! + rubbish bins and dump station.
Beautiful campground! We had a great stay!

Amazing free site but toilets are in maintenance so there is a temporarily toilet. Quiet and good for a night rest.
Good free camp spot close to the beach. No sea lions spotted but the beach walk was great. Has flush toilets, drinking water but no showers, with a dump point across the road. Heaps of campers, about 60 vehicles, when we stayed put pressure on toilets and water tap. Info says only 37 campers and only 5 sites. That is wrong. Good spot prior to visiting Dunedin and beyond. Thanks to local Dunedin City Council, very much appreciated.
