Freedom Camping sign

 

Marine Park is a large reserve with boat ramp access to the Tauranga harbour. Self-contained motor caravanners can park overnight.

 

Freedom camping is limited to a maximum of 2 consecutive nights per month, and no more than 6 vans over summer, and 10 vans in winter.

 

It's a really nice location and obviously popular with both locals and visitors.

 

Just one caution should you be tempted to park the sealed carpark overlooking the harbour - the trains run past throughout the night. Most of the other vans were parked much further back in the grassed area of the reserve for this reason.
