Barb Mackay There shouldn’t be any freedom campers in the Taupo town ship. There is a camping site at the airport and use the camping grounds. They camp in the floatplane car park and leave no room for the public, tourists etc. Five mile bay is ok but they shouldn’t be able to park in the car park right on the lake edge.
Vijay Naiker I don’t know why this is even a question. Freedom camping should not be allowed near lake Taupo. I have seen enough of filth when I lived in Taupo for 3.5 years. Takes business away from holiday parks, hotels and motels. No a great idea to continue with this. Council needs to do something about it.
Fee Holdsworth Really not happy as a NEW ZEALANDER we have the privilege of paying $30+ to stay the night in a DOC hut bookings must be made, that has no rubbish collection or free flush toilets where dishes are often washed or hot showers so why then do these “self-contained”- scoff for the most part not have to pay a minimal parking fee?? At the very least! (Sorry rant over)
Jan-Gren Treweek I don,t have a problem with them. As long as they tidy up after themselves and are self contained,. why not. Taupo needs all the business it can get right now. No matter where they spend there money.
Christine Stirling Get rid of them they make a bloody mess and leave rubbish in our town
