Raglan is not a friendly place and this site was no exception. Having driven around for over an hour to find somewhere to stay (no one would take us in a paid site as we have a dog), we found a patch of grass on a main road, opposite a lot of houses (this spot is a very residential area) that is marked as a freedom camp space. The area is very muddy, though flat, with no other amenities. We parked up on this busy road for a very interrupted sleep, there were loud revs and beeps most of the night, but the real kicker was waking up to an egged van in the morning. Considering that tourism is probably the staple of Raglan's economy, its people are rude and un-welcoming. If New Zealand ever need an enema - this would be where they insert the hose... Raglan is the arse hole of the North Island!



It's a grass area, so not recommended when it has been raining.
