Free section big enough for 4 vehicles, we managed to get a flat spot but apparently some are sloped. Right near the water, rocky beach. Picnic tables on beach. Playground close by. Toilets and fresh water available. Street was busy during the day as the boat launch is very close. Quieter in the evening.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 78 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Very nice (small) freecamp right next to Whangerei! Toilets and water station available and picnic tables on spot
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Lovely place to stay. Clean toilets. Nice playground for kids and great view. Yes the spots are sloping but what do you expect for free.
Great free spot on a quiet road right by the water. Public toilets, a play ground and bench seats overlooking the water all available. As someone else mentioned, some of the designated area has an incline which is not ideal for large motorhomes... but we made do for the night and would stay again.
Nice place by the sea with good toilets and playground for kids.
Would come again.
While there is a lot of flat parking on the coast locally the authorised spot rises steeply at the back so the area is not practical for anything other than short vehicles unless you get there 1st and park along the bay. There is a public toilet opposite but otherwise can't understand why this spot has been allocated for freedom camping.
