Nice spot tucked away behind a hedge of trees just off the road. Large area to park, good, quiet place to pull in for the night. Only minor problem, no toilets and located next to a little local rubbish and recycling station. Other then that, I recommend a night here.

We used this place 2 years ago and have revisited this time after sea kayaking at Tauranga bay. Very quiet location no facilities and next to the village recycle point.
Noticed sign for pub food so went 2km into main area but pub was just shutting (6pm Sunday).
Entry to field very wet so bigger motorhomes may struggle.
Nice big area so very private and only 20 mins to the beach

Clean peaceful campsite. No toilets. Great for a free camp if you are driving through. There's a nice little craft shop further in to Totara north and a quaint litte harbour.
