Campervans and motorhomes with self-containment certification can free camp for up to three nights at the MacMillan Reserve on the Katikati foreshore. Located at the end of Katikati's Beach Rd and overlooking the harbour to Matakana Island.
There is a 3 night maximum stay in any 4 week consecutive period at this site. The 4 consecutive weeks begin from the first overnight stay.
Obey usual free-camping etiquette - leave the site clean and tidy and respect the environment around you. Enjoy!

A restful spot. Sunrise straight over a concrete slipway. Very flat estuary.can walk on it.Toilets & yes paper.
Local gathering spot for picnics and late evening.always something to watch. Several parks.Consider boaties and trailers.Would return.
Beautiful spot with asphalt parking in front of grassy areas with shade trees and two picnic tables. Lovely walks nearby and views across to Matakana Island. Popular spot for locals walking their dogs or putting in their boats.
We spent New Year's Eve and we really enjoyed having the carpark for ourselves and the relaxing sound of the waves. Picnic tables available on a grassy area with trees. Nice to have a quick hat with locals and tourists coming to take their dog for a walk or use the jetty for their boats. Basic toilet facilities. Stunning starry sky view at night.
Found this small place at rankers.co.nz as well. Good place to sleep and enjoy the sunset.
Nice location by the sea, but its close proximity to Katikati meant that our Friday night stay was shared with various folk, out for a good time into the early hours of the morning. It might be a different story if you chose to stay here on a working week night.
