202 Freedom Camping
North Island ▷ Manawatu - Wanganui ▷ Mangatainoka
This is a great little stop off if you run out of light on the way to Wellington. Due to the clock change we decided to check it out and we were glad we did. It was Easter Sunday and the whole weekend all the freedom spots were full up, but it was just us here.
There is a gate which was unlocked when we arrived (sunset). No-one was in the car park so we just pulled up in the corner. A couple of vehicles came in for the club (which was shut) and popped in for a bit. A couple of vehicles arrived about 8:30 but it was the Easter Monday. Out of respect we left shortly after. This is private land so use it with courtesy and make sure you leave it as it is found as they could easily lock that gate at night, and no doubt they would if it was abused.
No toilets, but a drinking fountain. Great little spot for a safe roadside pullover for self-contained sleeping
