Located in the Chaslands, this is the geographical centre of the pristine Catlins Coastal Rainforest Park. Travelling on the recently sealed and upgraded Southern Scenic Route (SH92), visitors will find this camp on the McLean Falls Road. Don't miss the Catlins Cathedral Caves only 400 metres away, viewings are two hours either side of low tide. The kitchen is equipped with most cooking and eating utensils and the roomy ablutions are excellent. There is a lounge with a TV and you really must try The Whistling Frog Caf_ and Bar, it is not to be missed as most of the food served here is home grown and raised. You may like to visit the glow-worms, McLaren Falls at the end of the road, or one of the other many activities in the area. This is luxury camping, where pets are welcome and you are given free wifi. Your friendly hosts are Paul and Lynn. Unpowered sites are $45 for two adults and for powered sites $50 for two adults.

In the large lounge is a TV, piano, a free pool table and comfy seating, it opens to a sunroom where you can relax and enjoy the southern sunshine. Jan and Craig are your very friendly hosts, who told me they are a pet friendly establishment, but no giraffes or hippos please. Tent sites $16 per adult, 6 to 16 years $8, under 6 years free. Power site, s18 per person.
One of those basic beach camp grounds that are sadly becoming rare. 50 power sites on well drained, flat ground. The large kitchen is basic but clean, and there is plenty of freezer and refrigerator space, and an outside covered dining area. Older toilet facilities are clean and tidy, and the laundry includes auto washers and a dryer. There is a trampoline for children, and
pushbikes available to use. It sounds like they have a lot of fun at this camp,
with a stage out back for musical entertainment and the odd golf tournament
with the locals. A short stroll down the road is a small pub, no doubt a
welcome sight on a hot day. Internet is available and your hosts are Stu and
Angie. Tent sites are $20 per adult, $30 for two adults, $13 for an extra adult
and $7 for children. Power sites are $23 per adult, $32 for two adults, $15 for
