Only 6 spots, which were full before 3PM. You don't need a fixed toilet but you do need to be able to use your portapotty while your bed is made up. Kaikoura has different (stricter) rules than the regular freedom camping rules. Showers are outside with no privacy (beach showers to rinse off). Beautiful location!



New sign says only SC Vehicles with new regulation allowed (fixed toilet). 400$ fine



Great spot next to a safe, sheltered swim spot. Cold showers, clean toilets, shaded picknick spot. Bylaws get checked by council agent, only six spots, need to be gone by 7. Worth showing up early.
