Camped here in August. Perfect waterfront location. Room for 4 campers. Tidal estuary with sheltered cove. Lots of bird life. Clean toilet block. Peaceful. Outrigger canoe riders came after work.
Great spot. Only 2 others here. Toilets clean
Really nice location although gets a bit busy with locals after work. They all bugger before dark though. Toilet was average but cleaned first thing in morning.
If there is heaps of space, DO NOT park right next to another camper. It's selfish and I will crank my music until you leave. Just had to do that now and they just left
Amazing spot!! Bay is so calm and tranquil. Gets busy with locals on the weekends with water sports and day trips. Perfect place to paddle board when it’s calm!
The campsite is situated just beside the beach. Best views and the bay is very warm to swim.
Loved it here, cute little bay. Nice and peaceful

Very popular. Fills up early. They do come around and check you are in the allocated location. A bunch of people had to be moved for parking in the wrong spot. Good toilets, beautiful view. Great close place to Tutukaka. Highly recommend for a night.
First Freedom Camping spot we stayed at and we were SO happy. Absolutely lovely bay with rock sand beach. Secluded area, so way less people. Enough room for 5 vans in the area. Basic toilets present, no other amenities. Would definitely recommend as this site was so beautiful and peaceful. Get there before 3 or 4pm if you're hoping to get a spot
One of our favourite places, amazing beach and views. Clean toilets, no showers or anything. Space for 5 easily.
Our favourite sport so far! Beautiful beach and bay. clean bathrooms.
Wonderful free camping spot in a calm bay. We even heard Kiwis at night. Amazing bays and beaches around in a 15 min drive.
We give only 9 stars, because the female toilet was blocked.
End of May all 5 spots were occupied.
We can highly reccomend to stay here
We would have loved to stay here but it was already full at 4pm. It’s beautiful but the designated camping spot is really small and the vans were all parked really close together. Nice place to stop for the day though.
