Free Campsites on the West Coast
The drive along the West Coast was voted one of the top ten drives in the world and it only takes one trip to understand why. Known for the rough landscape with extreme weather patterns, the drive is something that has to be seen to be believed. You will find yourself passing deserted beaches packed with sea/bird life, amazing rock formations such as the pancake rocks Check out some classic West Coast footage from 1:25 onward in this Campermate Video. If you have come over from freedom camping in the Mackenzie District you’ll be taking remoteness to a whole new level! Often you will meet friendly locals who are a little rough around the edges but don’t dispair as it’s all part of the areas charm. If you’re heading South you’ll finish the West Coast drive by leaving Haast and arriving into Wanaka and while it’s often a breath of fresh air arriving into a bustling tourist destination, you’ll be left with the unique West Coast experience that is hard to find these days!
