Really nice Carpark. Because of less freedom campsites in this area we stayed here for 3 nights without any problems. Eventhough the Campgrounds close by were full at the moment. You can start really beautiful longer and shorter walks from here. Great place to stay

I loved the taupo point track, go when its low tide, walk along the beach and you may see some stingrays
