So sad to see this beautiful freedom camping place now in the hands of some locals. There was a huge place, with spot everywhere for everybody. Now all is closed, don't try to go there there is all the locals at the entry, blocked the access. That was one of the best place in New Zealand, and now it's closed, don't understand why.
