A much smaller area to camp now. No longer able to camp along the entire road just a small area as you enter.
Still a top spot for the kids and adult kids to run around.
If coming from the south suggest not coming via Law Road. Very step and a crawl and a half for large campers - We ended up on 1st gear !!

A really nice location, agree there and more than 5 spots, really nice beach / walk. It is a car park off to the side of the access road to the beach and as such we experienced many cars coming and going all night including some racing and drifting in the gravel. Note we were here on a Friday night.

It is a nice campsite close to a great beach area. The only problem is that there were several young people driving so far after sunset.

Great place to spend a night or two. Easy to find and park motor home. We spent a wonderful afternoon exploring the rocks and beach. Clean, flushing toilets not too far away. Definitely recommend.

What a place! We loved it there, the beach, the view of the moon rising in the evening and the ease of a restful quiet night.
We didn’t use the onsite facilities as they weren’t overly clean, although it does state you must be fully self contained to stay, so we didn’t mind.
There’s a playground and large field so suitable for children too.

Beautiful views if you walk out to the point and beaches. Site was very busy and crowded but the views make up for it. Toilets just okay. Arrive early as it was difficult past 6:00 pm to get a spot.

Beautiful beachside location, clean toilets, but unfortunately overrun by a local group of troublemakers who were threatening visitors, blocking access to the road leading to the beach, and driving recklessly up and down the camping strip well into the night.

Large open spot with access to a nice secluded beach and a big sports field. Portaloos closeby with a single public toilet at the rugby club building - 5 minutes walk from parking. Very easy to get to and from Dunedin City Center and St Claires.

Great spot overnight. Agree with other reviews, be there by 5pm. We read reviews that stated this free camping area could only hold 5 RVs, well when we left in the morning, there were 18! Vans, RVs and campers. 2 porta loos here and great place over bridge for icecream and staples.
