Six sites available only.
North Island ▷ Taranaki ▷ New Plymouth
Great spot just be careful. Shows and as ok for self contained on the map but only for non self contained.
Went to freedom camp with a self-contained camper, and Council has restricted to only non self-contained until 30 April 2020.
Very disappointed as it appears to be a very accommodating area.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 78 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Currently restricted to 6 SPACES ONLY until end of April 2020. Great beachside spot with fantastic ocean views, direct beach access and good, clean toilet and outdoor shower. We were the only camper van and could only hear the sound of the waves during the night. There’s nothing else to do close by as far as I know.
We tried to stay there last night 24th feb 2020 but self contained vehicles not allowed, only NSC in 6 places, till 30.4.20.... Very odd....hooe this gets to the app quickly
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Beautiful parking area right by the beach. One flushing toilet available, which is okay. But be aware that there are six parking lots designated for NON self contained vehicles. A sign says that overnight parking is prohibited in all other lots. So we slept in our self contained van on a NSC space and woke up to a 200$ fine attached to our windshield wipers!! This restriction is absolutely stupid and makes no sense, but now we know better. The previous reviews do not mention this matter so make sure to not camp here overnight if your vehicle is self contained, otherwise you‘ll get fined!!!
Beautiful site on the beach, with bins, nice toilet and nice black sand beach. However a sign indictated that camping in self contained vehicles is not allowed until April 2020. Non self contained are still allowed within the 6 marked bays.
Great location right on the beach. Toilet open 24hrs, outdoor shower, and large lot. There are 6 spots for non-self contained and the rest of the lot is open for self contained. Popular beach for wind and kite surfing.
Moved up the road from New Plymouth given the lack of view. This area is lovely. Beach front, grass, toilets and bins provided.
Last night followed directions and couldn't find it.
Today instead of turning left like GPS said we turned right. Went to end of road and followed sign to park. Windy wild night. Not good if weather bad. Probably ok in summer. There were hoons doing wheelies in the grass.
Small parking lot with clearly marked spots for non self contained campers, clear view on the ocean,
There are also quite clean toilet with flushing water and outdoor shower (not mentioned in description).
Great spot with sea view. Just got a last spot for not self contained vehicles, as there is limit for those.
Lovely quiet .
Would definately come back here
