Freedom Camping area
Matheson Bay West is a small parking area with on-grass reserve parking where self-contained motor caravanners can Freedom Camp.
It was mid-winter when we called in to check out the new Auckland Regional Council Freedom Camping locations, and the grass reserve was fenced off as it was too wet for driving on. This would be a great location in the summer though.
You are connected to the main Matheson Bay Reserve by a footbridge, or you can walk around the beach.
