Has anyone stayed at Jacksons Bay south of Haast. There doesnt appear to be any
camp there but we were wondering what the freedom camping options were like.

We will be in the area within a day or five and keep the forum informed once we return to the internet world. ;)

There are NO freedom camping facilities at Jackson Bay, no motor camp,..... nuttin. 😓. Even turning my 9 mtr bus was not easy. GREAT fish and chips though 😁

We parked up for the night in one of the lay-bys beside the road just out of Jacksons Bay. Plenty of room for a 9 metre van plus towed car. Very little passing traffic to disturb us.

Finally back to the world of internet.
Jackson Bay is well worth the visit. Also take the side road to the Lake Ellery walking track. We spent a very quiet night in a large gravel pit where the two roads meet. (200m along the Lake Ellery road).
