351 Freedom Camping
Courtesy of the Hastings District Council, certified self-contained campervans and motorhomes can stay up to two nights here.
Situated by the Raupare Stream, there are short walks in the immediate area.
The usual free-camping rules apply - pack it in, pack it out and respect your surrounds. Happy camping!

Noisy as. Trucks all night, some sort of bird scaring sound

Yes, LOTS of dog owners/walkers!!! Quiet spot except several cars come and go during all hours. Carpark spot but felt safe even though we were the only campers. Gets a 7 because of dog pooh up the far end so stay closer to the entry. No water, no toilets. Stayed 3 April 2016.
For dog owners, this is the best place to stay in a motorhome in Hawke's Bay to walk your dog off lead. Will take about 30 minutes to do one loop of the park, loads of tracks, loads of dog walkers coming and going.
We've stayed here a few times as spent some time in Hastings working.
+ Surprisingly quiet so close to road,
+ Lovely area to go for a walk,
+ Lots of dog walkers coming and going so plenty of cute dogs :)
