Located next to the highway, its a parkinglot for a lovely little park. Bathrooms arent the cleanest, but they're open all night. Only about a minute's walk to the gull gas station, a dairy, café & liquor store. Playground for the kids. Not bad, for free!

Not bad. May have children around as they practice near by and parents picking up but at night it’s quite. Toilet is not locked.

A large, open area, centrally located to the quiet rural town of Paengaroa. It certainly wouldn't be my No1 Freedom Camping choice, but this location could be alot worse all the same.
