Great last campground of the trip as there was potable water and a dump site right there. Large, clean bathrooms and an outside sink for washing dishes. It was pretty packed my night so it was evident where to park, but it’s pretty much up against the side of the parking lot with the stands for the rugby pitch behind you. A few tents set up on the opposite end of the campers. Some other reviews talk about power hook-ups, they might be referencing running an electric cord to the electrical boxes at the base of the light poles, but I wouldn’t be comfortable doing that. $5 donation asked for and was a perfect place to dump all my New Zealand coins at the end of the trip.
Stayed here on Saturday night and lost a pair of green/brown trail running shoes. If you find them please call me. 0225447424
The site is nice enough, very clean toilets.
I got confirmation from the council that the water from the washing up sink tap is drinking water but the others aren’t.

Great place to stay for the night. Clean bathroom and very quiet. A lot of space for tents
Bitumen car park next to rugby field. Lots and lots of space for campervans. Very clean toilet block with running water, toilet paper and hand dryer. Lights on at night! Trashcans available.
Not the most beautiful spot we've freecamped but a very good and accessible spot nonetheless. Kuddo's to the council and volunteers involved.
PS. Free power as mentioned below did not work 😜
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
nice and quiet place with everything you need. unfortunately, some campers came very close, even if half of the parking area was still free. Please donate 5 dollars to keep it as it is
화장실과 오수처리 시설이 매우 좋다.
마을 운동장에 위치한 주차장으로 화장실과 오수처리 시설이 좋다.
시설을 유지하는 지역 사회를 위한 $5 기부를 받는다고한다. 그러나 충분한 가치가 있다고 생각한다.
동네와 가까워 마트도 걸어갈 수 있다
Excellent site. Very quiet. Only a few minutes walk to shops and four square supermarket. Water available, dump station, toilets (ok we preferred to use own in campervan, but ok if you need them) Floodlit most of the night. All this for free, just give a donation of 5NZD. We had spent the previous night at a Top 10 park, which was expensive and we preferred this.
A nice place of the main highway to stay. 6 Van's present tonight. Toilets available which are very lit up. Very happy😁👍
Good location for free camping. Toilets were okay. Good enough for 1 night stay. Calm.
We turned up l0pm a few spots available. Nice and clean and quiet although we were up early so hopefully we were quiet enough. Perfect place for a sleep.
This was the first free campsite we stayed in and we were so happy with it! The toilets are clean, there is a washing up station and the site isn’t too cramped. Overall a great place to spend the night! Also it’s in a perfect location if you’re travelling along the west coast from Auckland -> South as it’s 3 minutes off the motorway.
Really great place to stay overnight, toilets really clean and somewhere to wash up. Lots of spaces too! Just have to put your donation in so really good value :D

The best Freedom Camping site as there was power! Only required a donation of $5 per site. Clean toilets, washing up space and power. An absolute bargain. The only free site we have come across with power in north and south island. If you want to see what it looks like, you can watch our video review on youtube, just search the camp site name and 'The Flip Flop Family'
Happy Camping from The Flip Flop Family
