Central space to park in Te Puke.
The atmosphere is a bit strange as a lot of people comes and goes all night long. Toilets are open till 9 pm but wasn’t open when we left in the morning, which was a bit annoying.
Good to stay one night I would say.

Good overnight spot, easy to find. very quiet most of the time and almost every night we were the only ones there, so it's a good alternative compared to the other, busier (and noisier) ones in the area. Toilet closes at 9 (winter time) and 10 (summer timer).

This Freedom Camping area is slightly better than a couple of other local Te Puke offerings, but the gravy is only a stones throw away. It's worthwhile taking the short drive east, to the coast, for better options.
