It was late when we got off the ferry and as we had already travelled some 450km + the ferry trip we decided to look for somewhere to crash for the night. Luckily Camper Mate NZ App lists all campsites both free and paid for.
A little over 6km’s from Picton at a little place called Colin’s Memorial Reserve on state highway 1. A bit noisy from the road and railroad but it has wash facilities and is completely free. It was perfect for tired travellers wanting a few hours sleep.
