Perfect location. Great place to walk the dog. Can get busy but always space. On site toilet (long drop).

We have stayed here in December 2017 just before the holidays started. We arrived around 2 pm so we could choose a nice spot. It became busy after 5 pm. One toilet at the beginning of the parking. Sadly swimming in Lake Taupo wasn’t allowed when we were there so we left after 1 night. The traffic on the road wasn’t disturbing.
Gorgeous lake views. We arrived late in the evening and had no trouble getting a spot near the water. Bathrooms OK. Just bring your own toilet paper!

Amazing open spot. You can park right on the lake. Shoreline will fill up quickly but there are still nice spots. Drop toilet and no running water.
Wow! What a spot! Such amazing views. Glad we decided to drive a bit further than our planned spot.
Spectacular view across the Lake Taupo, a little bit windy, so you have to park your van in the right direction to get a calm sleep.

Lots of space. We parked right on the side of the lake. Very quiet despite lots of motor homes parking here. Lots of runners and cyclists active early next morning.
Wow far better than in town, reasonably busy but plenty of space, waves crashing, the odd truck and plane... great views.
Freedom Camping at its best and purest. Brilliant camp next to the lake with superb views day and night. One long drop toilet which is reasonably clean. Lots and lots of spaces and quite busy 8+ campers in September.
Probably my favourite freedom campsite so far. Its location on the water is unrivalled and can get an unreal sunset picture. A bit more out of the city so it is a little quieter but close enough if you wanted to go in. Loads of space, although the ones on the waterfront go fast! There are more inland though so you'll be fine for space. Drop toilets are fine if you're cool with that kind of thing!
Beautiful view of the lake and surrounding mountains. Possible to park up right on the lake. Toilet did not have any toilet paper. Can get busy.
We at Rankers NZ, love to meet travellers on the road and share in some of the freedom. That's why Rankers NZ invites you to come and stay for free at our chill riverside overnight parking area in the Motueka Valley at the top of the South Island.
Nice in summer for a swim. Mice and mosquitoes around in April. Toilets but we didn't need to use. Close to Taupo. Great sunset view. Would stay again.
