A powered site for 2 people costs $40. No soap in the toilets. Free wifi with very bad reception at the powered sites (clear focus on apartments). Everything old and dingy. Shower / WC with light timer: If you do not fast, dry in the dark ...

This park was clean and well maintained. It is co-located with a motel of the same name so there are other facilities on site which you can use.
Even though it was Labour Weekend, it was not crowded. I never had to wait to use the kitchen or showers. The showers do not have a built-in seat, so I just brought in a plastic chair to keep my dry clothes from getting wet.
There is easy access to the other side of SH1 through a pedestrian underpass so you can go get groceries, find a restaurant, or get information on activities.

Clean facilities, lovely hot shower (free) and free to use the jacuzzi (spa pool). Sauna is for rooms only (we had a powered campervan site for $18pp). Free 500mb wifi on arrival. Games room on site, and lovely restaurant/bar too! Great find, best place in town.

This is actually a very solid spot and compared to other sites nearby probably best. It is not state of the art but not completely run down. Toilets and showers were all clean and the kitchen had everything we needed (2 stoves, microwave, water heater, toaster...).
Additionally there is a restaurant near to the place which looked nice but we did not try. Swimming pool, clean BBQ, trampoline and even a sauna (also did not use). We were given a 300mb Internet voucher at the beginning and the staff was friendly.
The place is located at the road close to i-site, petrol station and burger king. This does give you some noise but not comparable to one directly to the highway. Because of location and age, we give the site an 8. Not the best place we had, but definitely a stop if you are driving through or waiting for trail weather. And: we only paid $34 on a powered site. As I said, solid but not luxury
