Park Road Reserve in Maketu is right on the beach front. The carpark is a short walk from the public reserve and overnight parking is allowed for self-contained vans.
This is a really nice location to use as a base for enjoying Maketu - a small seaside community near the mouth of teh Maketu estuary. You can collect shellfish, or just chill out and watch the locals doing it. There is a nice play area if you're travelling with children.
Parking is on the sealed carpark and is restricted to no more than 3 vans staying overnight at one time.
It was a clear sunny day when we arrived and we walked around the reserve the next morning. Thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay.
