Maximum 12 Campers per night

Thanks to the Marlborough District Council for making this Freedom Camping location available for ferry travellers. Please be aware of the rules. Maximum limit of 12 spaces. If there's 12 campers already here when you arrive, then you'll have to find another place to stay.
- Maximum 12 Campervan limit. This is a strict limit and you may be fined $200 if you aren't in one of the 12 allocated parks.
- Please park only in the 12 allocated parking spaces.
- Consider other campers and residents in the area and please take your rubbish with you.
- Look for the details on the Freedom Camping signs when you first arrive and be aware of the rules

This location is close to a deer park, which is also a conservation area. The little town of Koromiko became famous in New Zealand for its cheese factory.

Thanks for respecting our place and our people here in Marlborough :)

Simple spot really near to Picton (less than 7 km). Just 12 areas to park your vehicle. It is noisy because it is near to the road but just for 1 night it is enough.

Basic paved car park on the side of the highway just off the ferry. Some road noise but wasn't bad after the last ferry unloaded.

This was a very busy site- we arrived around 9pm and got the last free spot. The toilets were clean. Lots of road noise and noise from other campers drinking in the bathroom shelter. Good for a free overnight stay.

Perfect if you just need a place to sleep! One toilet, no showers. I think just in vehicles, no camping - just self-contained only.

'Just' a carpark with a toilet, very close to a bigger road with lots of traffic. Running water and clean toilet, close to Picton and there is a lot of other travellers there.

Free. Very basic and busy gravel lot. Gets full quick. Make sure to squish in and park close to make room for more vans coming in, several vans had to continue on after not finding any room. Clean toilets and sinks. So easy to find that I happened to stop right in front when I was going to look at the Rankerd App on my phone to find a free site south of ferry. Busy busy busy in April.

We stayed here 1 night after arriving late into Picton on the ferry. Simply a car park with a toilet and sink. Noise from traffic and trains but perfect for a 1 night stop.

Free and no need to be self-contained because toilets are available. Well-maintained, with rubbish bin and picnic tables. Forbidden for tents but the parking can welcome a maximum of 20 vehicles. The best way to visit Blenheim or taking the ferry in the morning :)

The only bad point is that it's next to the main road, sometimes noisy.
