Right on the hauraki rail trail, in central city, good laundromat and hot shower facility, plenty nice eating places nearby. A great base for two days.
$5 for a powered site (pay at Caltex - staff will give a receipt to display on your vehicle dashboard). Clean toilets open 24hrs, can get public dropping in to use them throughout the night. So may pay to park further away, if you’re easily disturbed by noise. Easy walk to Caltex, playground, supermarket and shops.
The dump station has been removed. Some traffic to the toilets during the night as they are open 24 hours.
Really nice place!
Only 5$ by campervan, with really clean toilets, powered site, water for the campervan etc...
Also it's right in town so really nice if you just want to buy something.
It's a bit noisy in the morning but not a real nuisance!
Space for 8 or so vans, some powered sites next to toilets - but these were taken by the time we got there (7pm Friday night). Note: opposite delivery entrance to the supermarket, so early morning noise.
Basically a carpark in the middle of the town, but: dump station and fresh water; squeaky-clean public toilet. For $5 per night (per car/van, not person), this seems to me a god-send for an overnight stay.
Note that the $5 fee is payable at the gas station across the street (not city council or some early-closing-office), so you can arrive anytime.
