Whananaki North Reserve is a stunning location for motor caravanners to enjoy. You can park  overlooking the Whananaki Inlet and stay overnight for a maximum stay of 1 night.


We called in on a sunny spring afternoon and were very tempted to stay. There was another motorhome there when we arrivew, with two more arriving soon after. 


There was plenty of room for even large vans, and clean public toilets if needed. While rubbish bins are on site, campers are requested to take their own rubbish with them.


You don't have to be self-contained to stay, but be sure to park in the designated area. 


Alternatively, if you are self-contained, you can overnight in the boat ramp parking area.
