A ranger ask us for going in an other freecamp because this is not a freecamp anymore ! So don't come here for the night, its not possible now !



Huge free camp with toilets and sink, good spot if you want to explore and come back and still have space to park! Just park close to other vans because locals came in and did donuts in the middle. Nonetheless still a good spot. IG @travel_savvy_guide

Huge car park with enough space. But toilets are disgusting and there are millions of flies!! Don't leave your car's windows open or bugs may enter your car! Spent 1 night here and decided to go to a paid campsite for the rest of our stay in Rotorua
