239 Freedom Camping
North Island ▷ Ruapehu ▷ Taumarunui
A tiny trail head car park area with a long drop only. No signage about whether you can camp or not, but it was deserted so we took our chances. Close to road but very quiet country lane so nothing came along all night. Prob only fits 2 small vans. Trail was closed when we were there due to bridge being washed out. It was closest free camping to the end of the Timber Trail so suited us but might not suit others wanting somewhere to hang out for the evening.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 75 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Great spot very quite with a clean compost toilet. Parking for about 4 campervans or 2 big ones.
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 😍
