Omaio Reserve on the East Cape permits self-contained freedom campers to park up and enjoy the beautiful surrounds.
Facilities are basic, you need to supply your own water.
Please observe good freedom camping etiquette - leave your campsite clean, respect the area and others using it, and obey all signage during your stay.
Cheers to the locals and the Opotiki District Council for the camping love!

Fabulous, giant Pohutukawa trees, no facilities, lots of space.
Entire site is on a slope with 5meter drop onto rocks, no good unless you don't mind not being level. Dogs roaming on road to beach deterred me from passing them to go Surf-casting. After a cuppa coffee we left.
Nice location. Wouldnt stay there again though. On recent trip, planned on staying couple of days but was awoken at 1am and again at 2.30am by local idiots in a ute doing skids all over the camp ground, ripping up the grass area, scaring some campers and spooking horses which belonged to a camper. Told local residents of what happened and they just laughed. Not a reccomended place to stop. Carry on to Waikawa Bay camp sites. Isolated, beautiful place to stop and camp manager really nice to deal with.
