A lovely little spot. There are 3 spots available and the toilets are quite nice. They're open 24/7 with stocked toilet paper and hand soap. The view is nice however not as good as the other free spot north from here.

Nice spot right on the water. Beautiful big shady trees and clean basic toilet block. Once again tho experience spoilt by car users hogging the allocated spaces. Suggest trying Paku Drive if full. I waited 9 hours for a park. Silly me. Very popular spot that locals seem to utilise. Highly recommend the walk up Paku Hill for stunning views and photos 🙂

The place is beautifull, the lookout is amazing, but the campsite is not demarcated, so is really difficult to find the arra

Great spot on the harbour edge with wharf nearby and views across to Pauanui. Grass reserve and picnic tables in front of parking place. Toilets close by. Lovely 10 minute walking path along the waters edge to the town centre and beyond if you wish. Just two spaces, but no one else there when we overnighted in May.

Wonderful place directly at the waterfront. Clean public flush toilet. Limited to two self contained campervans. It was our first campsite and we enjoyed it very much (included an awesome sunrise).
