Formerly known as Hampden Beach Camp Ground.
n the settlement of Hampden, just south of Moeraki, is this beach and river
side camping ground. There are plenty of sites to choose from, and in the
busy season additional sites across the road are opened. The grounds are
pleasant with some shady trees with a fully equipped kitchen that features
visitor comments as wallpaper. Wireless internet and TV are available in the
newly built lounge area, and a trampoline, outdoor games, bikes and kayak
hire will keep the children busy. Nearby is a small children’s playground, tennis
court and a skate park, this is great for family camping holidays. An ablution
block with toilets and showers and a separate toilet block are provided, a large
disability suite is available, and small children are not neglected here with a
highchair and a child’s shub. There is a laundry with automatic equipment and
everything has been recently painted and is clean and tidy. Free pick up from
the bus stop at Hampden, and you might like to try the famous fish and chips
