Great spot away from the craziness of the city. Beautiful camp site next to the water. Good amount of spaces, we never had trouble to find something. Toilets are available and in ok condition.

Very nice view, the place is really great. Toilets are not very nice or clean for New Zeland standards, but we enjoy a lot our night there.

Great place to stop to catch the early ferry.
Clean toilets close by, New World supermarket and Sandbar pub within walking distance.
Only bad thing was that someone left the fan on full blast all night. It was windy.
I'll bet that people thought that we were up to monkey business in the van,but it was the wind honest.

It was pretty good but hard to find the good spot after 3 or 4pm. There are kind of park. You could play in the park. ha There have public toilet and ocean view. Toilet was just good.

Free sites along a waterfront road. To the left toward the marina, to the right ends in a carpark with access to the beach. Behind the sites are playing fields with clean toilets, ruin of a historic building, a playground and a train station within a short walk. Every facility you need including groceries, cafes and laundry are a short drive away. Staying here we caught the sunset with a quiet glass of wine, and had a restful night before catching the early interislander the next morning. Locals were lovely. When we woke motorhomes and campervans were lined up close to each other and it seems many of us were waiting for the Interislander also.

SO WINDY. We pulled up on the right hand side as you go in as the left was full. I'm assuming that they were all experts in wind prediction as us and one other were the only ones to brave it out on that side of the site. Although the site itself is great and has toilets, the wind was terrifying. I'm sure I'm overreacting but I did google wind speeds that cause vans to blow over because it was shaking the van! Great spot for the brave though.

Good spot, easy to find. Nice view.
No dump station and no water to fill the tank but only bottles. Toilets and outside, a shower if you just need to refresh.

Free with public toilet in walking distance. Enough space to park motorhome and to sit outside with a decent Sauvignon was excellent. There's a playground and fields too for kids to run off energy after day in van. Dump station in garage 1/4 mile away. Very handy.

Busy stop off point maybe 20 motorhomes including a few big coach motorhomes but then it was Saturday night and it is very convenient for ferry terminal. Certainly one of the windiest overnight stops we have been to. Great for access to the water for boating kayaking etc. Bonus is the BP fuel station nearby which has toilet dumping, waste recycle, and water.

Nice place to get the ferry the next morning. It can be little bit noisy if you sleep close to the train rails. Public toilets available.

The place we were planning to stay at wasn't accessible as the road was closed, so this was a great find! The views of the estuary were beautiful, although we stayed there during particularly unseasonably windy weather and the camper rocked us from side to side like we were on a boat. Perfect for accessing Wellington - catch a train from across the tracks for around $15 return. We also used this as a convenient stop off before catching the ferry to the South Island - took around 15 minutes in no traffic!
Proper flush toilets available down the lane a little way.

Good location for Wellington. We took the train in from the Mana train station just across the fields. Site gets busy early due to location, we arrived at 16:00 and was quite a squeeze.
