Situated on the north bank of the Rangitata River mouth, this beautiful old style campground has taken on a new lease of life with new managers Allan and Denise. Most of the facilities are housed in the old style concrete block type buildings, but all have been painted and are immaculately clean and tidy. There are several different spots to camp, under trees, in small sheltered groupings, or out in the open for larger vehicles. All sites are level and the large pine tree hedges keep you sheltered if there happens to be any wind. The kitchen area includes dining table and several appliances, while the free showers and laundry are a special feature. With 24 powered sites, and plenty of non-powered, there is room for all, but be aware there is no dump station on site - lots of lovely spring water though. A very popular spot for salmon fishing and white baiting, the beach and river are only a short walk away. Open all year round, do your shopping before you get here as the nearest shop is 24kms away. An unpowered site will cost you only $15 a night for two people, a seasonal rate of $550 for 91 days is also available. Powered sites are $17 per night for two people and the seasonal rate is $630 for 91 days. An extra adult will cost $6 and children 5-15 are only $2 each, and under 5 are free. You will get a friendly welcome here from Allan and Denise, bring your pets but dogs must be kept on a lead.
