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.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
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.
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.
free campsite pour motorhome autonome, très agréable
au bord du lac, vue magnifique, et site calme, vue coucher de soleil très belle
attention à respecter les limites de stationnement des motorhome, un panneau indique la limite,
ne pas hésiter à aller au fond à droite pour se garer
Large area attracting overflow campers from nearby Tuapo. Great location, but the weather for us was awful. Single drop loo, but as this site is only for self-contained motorhomes, that's not really a problem.
Perfect location next to the lake, great swimming spot. Quite busy and some locals came and played very loud music. Take toilet paper for the long drop toilet! Great for one night's stay. Use the super loo next to Taupo library for a $2 hot shower and hairdryer!
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.
Really busy place. Having said that if early you can sit right by the lake and it's amazing views.. No other facilities other than toilet. However easy access to water and rubbish bins on way to Taupo .
Wow what a great site. Busy but quiet, well apart form the waves crashing on the shore. Lots of motorhomes here. Great access to the water, ideal for us with sea kayaks.
