52 Freedom Camping
This place is not suitable for large vehicles. Medium to small, self contained vehicles only.
There are multiple sites up the gravel road that are sign posted, the third being where there is the most space and direct access to the stream.
The end of the road has a large, grassy area for larger vehicles.

Heading out of Taupo the location on map is a bit wrong, it’s the other side of the bridge. It’s also 4/5 diffrent little sites and the roads probably 1k long. This so far has been my favorite camp site. We stayed in the very first one as it was right next to the stream and parked so we could see the stream from our van. Didn’t see a single other person was lovely. So many stars at night because of the lack of light around. Great camping spot

Hard to spot . Heading towards Taupo after Harrow just before bridge. Very narrow road, don’t want to meet anyone coming other way. 3rd campsite was the best. We’re right down near the water and a walk along the river. Lovely
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Difficult to find as no sign. It's a gravel track on right heading away from Taupo just before Hatepe . Very quiet, good over night
Good and quiet spot. Didn't meet a single living soul. Nice stream for fishing, a few mozzies. No toilet.
An amazing hike for people who like (almost) untouched nature. Make sure you have good boots.
We camped near the river. Excellent very quiet.
A pretty tight gravel road to access - at the very end is a massive open space by a hydropower structure.
Cute little stream with fishing access tracks along the edge, not marked trails.
Nicely situated between Taupo and Turangi
