Nice little campground amongst the birds and the trees. Drop loo problem seems to have been sorted -it was nice and clean and even had toilet paper. Would happily camp there again.
Fabulous walks in the area.

Really pretty DOC campground but the drop loo was terrible. There was also a cat (from a caravan) that kept trying to get or food! Also a few sand flies, but the stunning waterhole made up for it all.
DOC basic campsite. Not far from the main road. Easily accessible. So many places. Shelter to cook. Shade. Really cool. Protect and respect nature !

Grand espace de verdure proche d'une rivière avec des gouilles pour se baigner
Beautiful spot. Several good places hard to find after dark. Very basic facilities but there is a shelter. Excellent place to stay on the way to take the boat in Wellington, but you risk staying too long in the morning.
Great overnight camping/parking. Basic campsite, but pretty, sheltered and quiet. Easy access of the highway.
Basic campsite. FREE! Nice river after about ten minutes walk.
Free campsite but unfortunately not a very nice long drop and badly signed. A good distance down Manukau Road North.
Nice quiet free camping, very large area, lots of green and trees, 2 dry wc, there's a small bay/pound in bush where you can dip called Swimming hall-5min walk, the place is well maintained.
We at Rankers NZ, love to meet travellers on the road and share in some of the freedom. That's why Rankers NZ invites you to come and stay for free at our chill riverside overnight parking area in the Motueka Valley at the top of the South Island.
Stunning spot, very quiet. Not loads of sites but we had no issue. Great stop over spot on the way south. We drove from here to Wellington and had most of the day to explore the city and museum before an evening ferry.
Free campsite with toilets, a shelter where you can make a fire and a nice walking track right next to the campsite. Really enjoyed camping here.
Beautiful place, no showers, no rubbish bins.... but free.
