Parking by the beach

 

No Freedom Camping sign

 

Hampden Reserve overlooks the harbour and is just around the corner from the Moeraki Boulders Holiday Park. While overnight parking is not allowed, it is a pleasant location to stop for a lunch break if you're not staying at the holiday park.

 

I'm guessing that the No Freedom Camping sign was erected by the holiday park rather than the council.

This is a good spot to catch the morning sunrise. There is a playground here, across the road are sheep and llamas. A tennis court and a skateboard ramp. There are toilet facilities. No BBQ. You can walk along the beach to the Moeraki Boulders - 3 hours either side of low tide. Swimming, fishing and surfing type beach. Also leads off into a smooth water lagoon/river suitable for kayaking or SUP. It can be quite popular during school holidays.
