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!
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 99 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
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.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
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!
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.
Heaps of sites available, right next to lake if you want. We arrived very late (9.30) and still had no issue finding a site (mid Dec). There are drop toilets, make sure you bring toilet paper.
Huge parking area on Lake Taupo. We stayed in December & by evening there were approx. 60 campers there! Despite that quiet to sleep. Biked into Taupo (8km per way, lovely cycle trail that meanders along the lake, great to walk too). We had a perfect spot right on the lake with magnificent views!

Pretty good spot on the shores of Lake Taupo. We went late December and it was very busy with not a lot of flat space left, and full of campervans but a lovely quiet spot none the less, with easy access to beach and the walkway around the lake.
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.
Great roomy spot on the lake. Not far from shops. Drop toilet on site.
Great place to stay looking over the lake, had plenty of parking.
