Very quiet and private location. The toilets are immaculate and there’s very good lighting day and night. At night there are lights outside as well but there’s bushes so it doesn’t shine in anyone’s face.
It’s such a lovely spot and you can do a number of walks. There was plenty of space for campers and day cars.
There’s also two picnic tables in a grassy area.
Nice secluded spot with lovely views. Tidy bathrooms
Perfect FREE place to stay, it's tucked away very nicely, lush green cliffs to the left and coast to the right, all you can hear is the sounds of birds, the start of the mount walk is a few metres away and the car park for mount Manaia only 5 mins drive or 30 mins walk away.
When you arrive the GPS will say that the small green carpark at the bottom is it but you must drive up what looks like someones steep driveway to the left to get to this spot.
A walk up Mount Manaia is a must. It took us 1.5 hours return but the views are worth it on a sunny clear day.
Can confirm the other reviews. Except the view and just the little noise of the Marsden Point Oil Refinery. It disturbs optically the beautiful scenery. A familiar diving and swimming place for locals.
It is a beautiful spot and has everything you want from a free campsite. There is an oil refinery close by, but if you look the other way you are fine, because there you will see beautifull nature.
Awesome place to stay, really enjoyed the feel of the place and how lovely and tidy it was
Amazing! And it’s the best place for making a trip to Mt. Aubrey in sunset.
I am here and it's awesome. It's quiet, amazing views, nice walks, clean toilets. It's a slice of heaven!
This place made my heart sing. The world sent us here and my goodness was it right or what! Absolutely amazing views; grass, cliff rock faces, the ocean and a killer sunset, it had it all. 100m from the beach and has two 20-30minute walks we didnt have tine to do. Climb the big rock though, veiws are even better (; Only one other camper, space for three vehicles. 45 mins from whangarei. Drive to the end of reotahi road and the carparks up a steepish looking driveway with some grass and a building to the right, only one sign. HIGHLY recommend a night here!!!
