11 Freedom Camping
North Island ▷ Out East ▷ Wairoa
* THE ABOVE PERSONS COMMENT IS NO LONGER VALID. COUNCIL HAS PUT UP SIGNS THERE SAYING NO CAMPING PERMITTED. BEAUTIFUL SPOT THOUGH! *
The spot that Rankers has listed is really nice. I came to this spot as a last resort as I didn’t like my first pick a few hours back up the road. Very nice scenery, a few trees for shade, and picnic tables. It sits on the shore of a lagoon looking over at a sandbar that shelters the spot from the wild beach on the other side. No access to the beach unfortunately.

You need to go past where there is this dedicated Freedom Camping spot, about another 2 miles / 3 K. A local told me about it. Lntknje on the azphLyed road which at the end makes a 180 degree U-turn. Continue another 500 meters and there is a toilet house. Beware of deep sad, but there are formally areas. For self-contained vehicles only. Two ean toilets, no water. Nobody else amled here why the site identified here probably had 10 campers in a tiny space that has no toilets. Locals. One here to exercise their dogs, BTW.
