The photo attached shows where people are allowed to park overnight highlighted in green. Do not park in the red area.
Only ONE night is permitted (the signage reflects this).
If the designated area is full or too wet to park on, you must move on, you must not park in the car park highlighted in red in the photo. By parking in the red area, this causes issues for people who use the car park for launching boats at the nearby ramp. Signage is up regarding this, do not ignore it please.
Keep it clean, take your rubbish with you, and big-ups to the Boat Club for sharing their facility!

Fantastic free camping spot! Was pretty busy while we were there, but full of lovely friendly campers who were nice and quiet at night. Awesome swimming at high tide and jumping/diving off the jetty and wharf at both ends. Great fish and chip shop across the road and the pub allows takeaway wine/beer. The Pink Shop just up the road has a good amount of grocery supplies with some veggies and fruit as well. A lovely spot for a wee break.
First free place I’ve stayed where the toilet isn’t filled with flys/ a porta potty.
Great views of the lake and sunset.
Good amount of spots

Lovely free campsite, nice spot and village, just over an hour from Auckland. Toilets are clean too.
Stayed here twice because it’s so good. Nice sheltered spot with clean toilets. Drive part the Miranda Hot Springs on the way out so you can stop off have a spa for $15 pp and a shower too!

Nice spot in front of the water. 6 or 7 campervans already here for the night when we came, even in winter ! A lot of spaces but half of the spot was not practicable because too muddy. However there is another free camping area 5 min further with a much better view without toilets.
Nice simple little spot with loads of spaces. Toilet was nice and clean. Be careful of the mud when wet... nearly got stuck!
We intented to stay at this free camping place but we find one one the sea shore 5steps from the water. It was a great experience to wake up and see the sun rising from the sea! We like it!!!
far away from the highway but a very nice place. a lot of space for tents and vans.
Quiet place, lots of space. Even for tents. Good toilets. And it's 4 free!
Fine place to stay but there is a one night limit

Just as described, lovely view, toilets were clean, right next to the road. Thanks to the boat club. Can only recommend the fish & chips across the street!
Nice place to stay the night! Got there late but was not a problem. Totally fine toilets, a little shitty but not so. Would recommend if you're not SC.
Great place to start your road trip in New Zealand. We spent our first night here and we really liked the sound and smell of the sea! Plenty of space and toilet and water supply. Recommended!
