We were cautious about this accommodation after having been burned by the Turangi freedom campsite the night before, but at 5pm we pulled into the Oparau Roadhouse and found quite a few campers already there on the grassy area next to the Roadhouse. The toilets, shop and food available were welcome after a long day and the site is lovely and grassy and landscaped with lots of space to park. If you get a spot closer to the road you get some lovely views down the valley and the road wasn't too noisy. Can definitely recommend!

Lovely campsite, with big petrol garage which you can get everything you need. The owners are great and couldn't be more helpful or friendly. Perfect location for exploring Waitomo and Kawhia! Would definitely recommend staying here.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Nice outlook, cafe stops cooking at 630 and not much else around for food. We had an unhealthy meal of pies and fried chicken (not free or discounted despite being the last remaining from the day- we wouldn't normally expect otherwise except quite a few people have mentioned free food.) They have quite a lot of grocery items and petrol. Good free spot tho not much around apart from the hot water beach.
Lovely owners. Flushing toilets. Petrol station, shop and cafe on site. Free wifi and electricity! Best of all - free to camp!
One of the best freedom campsites in New Zealand! We stayed there one night on the way to Raglan - free wifi, free camping , cute little spot with tables and chairs, cafe next door - what more could you want? I ran in just as they were closing to ask if maybe they could fill up our hot water bottles - the owners did this for us and gave us some free chicken - such lovely people, the world needs more people like them - stay here if possible so nice.
Very nice place at Bill and Brenda's roadhouse. Stay there for free (not for tents) and in the evening they give you chicken and chips that has not been sold. Bill and Brenda are really nice.
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.
