If you are in a fully self-contained vehicle you can camp anywhere in our district except in the prohibited areas. You can stay up to 3 nights in each area. If your campervan or motorhome is fully self-contained (with a toilet, wastewater tank and rubbish facilities on board) then you may camp overnight for free on most land administered by the Council, away from the town centres and residential areas. There is some public land including DoC reserves which are excluded. Please observe all no camping signs. Freedom camping in prohibited areas is not permitted and is likely to result in a parking infringement notice and monetary fine from the local council. If you don't have a fully self-contained campervan or motorhome (one with a toilet, wastewater tank and rubbish facilities on board) then you cannot freedom camp anywhere in the Waikato district. Instead, you should stay in a holiday park or camping ground.

A Spot on the street. For sleeping fair enough. Toilet Next to the street. Its Quite central



Raglan has a few different spots to freedom camp- if you can, go on the city website to see where is allowed! Practically all of James street is available for overnight parking (Self Contained, it's only a parking spot). I only stayed one night outside the bowling alley because there is a sign that does say only 8 hours and why risk it when there are heaps of other options. It seems like you can't overnight park next to any waterways, so be mindful.



Fine place to stay but for the 3th night, some local people turn around the city and disturbed all the van park with honks and banging the cark. There are not agressive, but enough to scared ourself and the others campers.
