Sadly only 1 space now for camping as other 6 now just day parks, but was not clearly sign posted as it was behind the 1 camper who was there. Ruined by a local driving up at 7am and screaming at all the campers to f off, when confronted he run drove off like a little scared girl in his clapped out 4 x 4

Avoid Camping Fines!

Each camping location is approved by a regional council in NZ. So if it shows on the map, you’re allowed to stay.

Supposed to be for 2 campervans according to signage, but at least 4 other campervans showed up after 8pm. It's about 20 minutes walk to public toilets. Stayed on a Saturday night, after 11pm teens (assuming) ran around the campervans screaming "Wake up!" Around 3am there was a lot of loud activities of cars driving in and out at high speed while playing loud music. This lasted for almost 2 hours. This freedom camping site seemed good when we first arrived in the afternoon, but turned out to be a hangout for rowdy troublemakers. We did not sleep much due to the chaos.

What a beautiful spot (for 2 campervans) with a nice ocean view. A special surprise for our children was "the beach library" - a little wooden shelf with different sand toys to borrow.

Great quiet spot with ocean views. No toilets close by. Local RV users will ask non self contained users to move on.

Nice area right on the beach front.
Only 2 parks, so first in.
For self-contained campers, we had 2 vans park behind one another in the one park, they were overseas girls, quiet, but unfortunately freedom campers are giving all campers a bad name!
They left early and also left toilet paper on the road way, and no2 on the corner of parking lot with toilet paper, a real shame to come over here to NZ and get free camping only to litter and dump on our land!!!
Shame on you girls 🤤
