370 Freedom Camping

Couldn't access. Don't go here. Hard to find and it's not accessible.

For the view and peacefulness of this place, I'd give 8/10 because it's a very nice location in the midst of nature. There's no toilet, water, nor people, which was lovely. However, you'd almost need a 4WD motor home to get there. The 10km long access road is filled with holes, puddles, mud and (very) uneven surfaces with rather large rocks and narrow passages. I had to hold my heart multiple times for not getting stuck or ruining my campervan on the way to this place. Thinking back, there really is not that much space anyway! However, if you want a free spot in the middle of nowhere and you got a small van, go for it!
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 😍
