Tucks Bay, Coramandel

Darryn Phayer

Not quite freedom camping, but the weather was bad where we intended to stay (at Little Waikawau Bay, Thames Coast) so home for the night became Tucks Bay, the overflow part of the Long Bay Campground, Coromandel.

It’s basic tent sites, composting toilet. The lady gave us a discount as they had no powered sites left in the main camp.

Nice little drive through the bush, about 1km from the main campground.

Its more of an old-school camp site, better than any Top 10. n
