Arrived at 6 30pm after ferry, no parks left, around 70% of vehicles there were cars, small vans etc and not self contained motorhomes. All these vehicles were displaying self contained stickers which it's obvious they aren't, probably bought off the internet. I wish these places would police their parking areas like they advertise they do. I've stayed at other places that say they are for motorhomes and half are cars. It's a lot easier to find a park for a car than it is to find one for a motorhome.

Can’t complain as it’s a free campsite in the city. Would need to get there early as spaces go easily. About an hour walk into the city. Toilets are the other side of the campsite and not many of them which is annoying but can’t complain

IT is a carpark surrounded by noisy street, but absolutely perfect for a Stay at Wellington: quite clean toilets, Bus stop in front of it and by Bus a few minutes to town centre.
As others have written, you should be there early to get a place. We arrived at 1p.m. In shoulder season and we got one of a few left spaces.
There is also a dumping and fresh water Station.

Many places but that makes it very crowded. Not a great view. Toilet was very good and dump station with fresh water is useful.

Awesome place to stay! Close to the city and supermarket. Toilets clean. Dump station and water nearby. Everyone was quiet and respectful. It gets really busy on weekend so aim to get there on a Thursday or early morning. If you turn up in the afternoon you won’t get a spot. You’ll also get told to move if you park in a no parking zone/yellow line.

We read that it gets pretty full So opted to get there a little early which was nice and secured us a lovely spot. It’s walkable into town but also bus is driving. Clean bathrooms and the place gets nicely busy with a good atmosphere. We spent three nights there as most people do.

Convenient spot for getting the ferry and exploring Wellington. Our campervan was quite large and it was a bit of a squeeze getting into a spot. There are quite a few spots but these were almost full when we got there at 3pm, so get there early. Toilets are locked overnight. Unfortunately when we stayed it was really stormy weather so we didn't have a pleasant experience, but it is a convenient spot to freedom camp. Not too much noise from airport.

A 9 is pretty justified here. We actually spent 5 nights in total here due to its convenience. Only 4 nights are allowed in a calendar month, so we lucked out by the month change. Get there early as it gets full mid afternoon, although there are many spaces. Toilets are a short walk, but only 2, which for the amount of campers was a bit less. Fresh water and dump station. Bus routes close by, as well as your usual supermarkets. Swim centre and library both in the near, so win win.

As others have said, super convenient for ferries and to see Wellington. Excellent aquatic center and toilet/water/dump station nearby. Packed; got a spot at 3pm only b/c someone was leaving.

Very convenient for ferry crossing & city providing your active & mobile, we walked into the city over Victoria view / through the tunnel it’s about 4-5 km & steep gradient, went to see the warriors at the national museum, lovely cosmopolitan vibrant city, took the oriental bay / Evans bay walk back to camper park which follows the harbour much flatter but longer walk about 7-8 km but the views are worth it. Camper park has more parking than indicated on app but still fills up quickly due to location but on site toilets & facilities are good great if heading out on early ferry crossing or want to explore the city

+ Harbourview (beautiful sunrise)
+ Walkingdistance Mt.Victoria (30 min up)
+ Walkingdistance Pac'n'Save (15 min) which is open till 11pm
+ Busstops (2 and 24) to city close by (had to look and ask to find)
+ Clean-ish toilets, dumpstation (2) and drinkingwater
+ It's free, it's in the city, close to WETA, airport, ferry's
- Only early arrival (before noon) is rewarded in peakseason. We arrived late januari at 3pm and got last spot.
+/- Crowded, but cozy we're-in-it-together-and managed-to-find-a-spot feel in an odd way.
- It's a parkinglot next to the highway
