The residential camp is mainly for groups but does have some powered and
non powered sites for individual campers. Fish or swim in the Waingongoro
River which runs through the lower level of the campground, which is flat grass.
There is an ablution block with toilets and showers and a washing machine.
There is a BBQ on the lower level. Your host is Rosanne. No pets. All sites
are $15 per person per night.
A remote camp with just toilets and water, this site was looking pretty run
down last time we were through. It is listed in the Hurunui District Council
camping grounds, but is administered by the Domett Reserve Committee.
Maximum of 24 campsites but wouldn't take a large vehicle in there as the
sites are spotted around in amongst bushes and trees. There is good fishing
in the river and the sea. No power but a site will cost you $8 per night to be
put in the honesty box.
