359 Freedom Camping
North Island ▷ Taupo Region ▷ Turangi
Camping spots are sparse around here, so it's better than nothing. The road into here was pretty scary in a 6 berth campervan, narrow and steep. We arrived late at night, parked and were almost asleep when we were woken by a couple of 'hoons' (noisy idiots revving their car engines) driving back and forth, and given its isolation, felt too unsafe to stay here with two young children. Drove on for another 40 minutes or so to the much nicer, Tokaanu Tailrace.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 75 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
A great view on a clear day from the lookout structure. Sealed area accessed by a steep sealed road, camping spots are few and far between out in this area so there's not to many to choose from.
A bit of graffiti around could indicate a favoured spot for local youths?
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
