A car park of a sports centre. We spent a night here. The toilets were somewhat clean. Fine for overnight.

Only $6 a night for a campervan, cheapest we could find in Auckland. Basically just a car park but has a toilet, dump station and drinking water. We stayed over the weekend and the showers weren’t accessible (not sure why) but other than that good value for money in Auckland.

Be aware that it is more a parking lot with flashy lights than a park full of trees. We paid $6 per night for two people to stay overnight with our self contained vehicle. It is very cheap especially for those good facilities (toilets, hot shower and dump station). Pay attention to (poor) signs to find allowed sites (on the right side). Booking online is possible but actually you can pay at the reception of gymnasium (the last building at the end of the parking). There is place for non self contained vehicles too just outside the gate.

It is very good. Hot shower, toilets and it is free. The only problem is that the gate to enter in the camping closes 9pm and you can use the toilets and shower only from 9am to 6pm.

This place is a car park in the middle of a huge park. Yes there are toilets and a free (filthy) hot shower.
What lets the place down is there are quite a few down and out locals that congregate during the day into the wee hours of the morning, eating, drinking and arguing. I didn't have any trouble, except a blaring stereo in the evening. But it definitely gives the place a rather yuck campsite feel. Alright as an emergency stop, but far from a decent free camp spot.
