Don't slide into gaps between big rigs here. If you aren't properly within the confines of the white lines in the green designated area you will be ticketed. A prime target area for local louts making trouble. Last night rocks were thrown at camper vans.

Place is in a pretty handy location. 20 min walk to beach front and bars etc. Can get noisy in the morning as people bring their boats into the marine. Also the designated campervan spaces are the far end of the car park from the bathroom
Heaps of space and a good location with close by toilets! It is on a big parking area on the grass and we were surrounded by lovely travelers. The train is noisy but it’s not too bad! Would stay there again if it was for just one night.
We ventured to this place after rejecting Wairoa River reserve just around the corner. We stayed for 2 nights.
+ Toilets open to public but are locked overnight,
+ Quieter than expected,
+ Big open area to park in,
- Quite regular trains making a racket as well as the ship yard
Free, but loud! Just next to the railway and highway and harbour. Public toilets were ok. Tauranga has nicer spots.
