Not free anymore for SC vans, they acted surprised when I told them it was supposed to be free and I had to pay $20. This doesn't include hot water (sink or shower).
The camping is otherwise ok, you have a nice view and it is very quiet

The review given 4 months before this one about free camping is either out of date or false: all sites are $20 plus another $10 for a powered site - yes, there are powered sites now. This is clear on all signs upon entry to the site.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Great facility with clean toilets and showers. $20 for unpowered site. Lovely setting with amazing views of the mountains. Really nice Pub on-site with great food. Don't leave without trying the Chowder.
$20 dollars for unpowered sites & $30 with power. Pay at the bar on arrival. Plenty of sites when we stayed near the end of Feb. Nice setting in the country side amongst the farms with view of the mountains. Toilets to use & $4 hot showers
The spot is really beautiful and so is the pub. But ... it is not a free place. We had to pay $20 without electricity and $10 more with electricity. It is more than worth it.
Not free anymore! Came here after reading reviews saying unpowered sites are free, but all sites are $20 now + an extra $10 if you want power. Nice place though, clean toilets and showers ($4), drinking water taps everywhere.
Arrived at a lovely Irish Pub and Motel where Murray has extended it to campervans on site. Great location to Kaikoura. Superb food in pub (suggest lamb shanks). Horses in the paddocks. Ducks in the ponds. At $20/30 for unpowered / powered site this is a great spot. Clean and appointed.

Large (but unimaginatively laid out) car park site, with fresh water at pretty much every pitch and power if you want it. Nice welcome in the bar/restaurant and the food was great, if you can cope with piped Irish music, which you can't escape if you're eating or drinking, even outside. The camping is far enough away that you can't hear it there, though. We stopped in at Kaikoura, booked a whale-watching trip for the following day, then spent the evening here, just outside the town itself.
