Unfortunately seems to be closed as the entrance is now blocked by a large (seemingly permanent) chevron road sign.

Three lunch tables and rubbish containers (in which a rubbish bag will fit). No water supply, well, there was a river.. Noisy road, but hey, you're close to the highway. We were the only SC vehicle staying that night.

No water supply (in spite of the fact that it says there is) unless you count the river close by. Don't venture too close to the river at night, as the place is obviously used as a latrine by non-SCC campers. Nevertheless, it's a handy spot, you can tuck yourself well away from the highway so no real traffic noise, and it's level with picnic benches and rubbish bins. We actually used the place twice en route to and from Wellington, so don't be put off by the low score which is based purely on lack of facilities.
