Great coastal location. Dump station is part of the carpark. Freight train may come past at 6am
**WARNING - thefts come at night. Had our bike picked apart last night (2/6/2020) even though it was locked up on our bike rack. Tire stolen and they also attempted to pull off rear tire. They know what they are doing and are quick. By the time we looked out the window they were gone. Others reported stolen items. Please be aware and bring front tires inside or lock up if you have a bike. Also saw a drug deal in the in the morning - not the best experience for our 5 yr old. Nice view and good bathroom though. Also has dump station and rubbish bins.

Excellent position view out to sea. Lovely especially waking to this. Water toilet & dump station. 20-25 min walk into town.
For a free camp better than some, right next to beach, superb. Clean tidy & all campers respectful of each other. Council & police monitor site. 👍
Lovely seaside spot with toilets and plenty of spaces. Get there early to get a sea view. About a 25?minute walk in to Napier centre.

Great for a free site. Beautiful view, convenient location. Basic toilet, water tap and what looked like a dump station? Right next to a main road and freight train goes through occasionally throughout the night. You’ll need to get in pretty early to get the primo spots along the beach!
Nice place with lovely view and close to city! Toilets where clean and water station. Gets busy later but was enough room. Enjoyed this space a lot.
Great freedom camping spot in walking distance to Napier and surrounded by a bunch of fun stuff. Only reason that it got a 9 is the trains that go past very occasionally during the night. Deffo reccomend this spot
Great location right by the sea with lots of parking for motorhomes. Unfortunately some people are deliberately taking up 2 spaces each or more with their motorhomes, which means other people coming along later have no parks to stay in. Also copped abuse for being parked too close to another motorhome even though we are parked within our park!
Other than that a great place to stay. Even has a public toilet :-)
Very nice campground, lots of space 2 dumpstations and drinking water. 2 toilets they would be very great with a mirror and a shelf or something to put your belongings or even a hook would help ( thats why its only 9/10 *). And there are also some tables and benches under a roof which can be very helpful for eating meals.
Great place to park up, enjoy the sea breeze, enjoy gorgeous sunrises and sunsets with toilets, outdoor shower cold water only, dump station and water.
Everyone parked there was respectful of other campers.

Lovely place on the marine beach with uninterrupted views across the sea. Lovely sunrise. Lots of space. Public toilet, dump station, fresh water. Bit of a lo g walk to supermarket, could have parked there first and done shopping. Yes were close together, but we got chatting to our neighbours on bith sides.

Excellent site fairly close to Napier. I stayed two nights maiy because of a nasty weather threat which didn't really materialize. Went for two 50+ kilometer road bike rides. Being able to take an outdoor shower is such a big plus after such rides. Had front row parking with view of the sea. Can toilets, dumpstation, potable water. No noise issues. Not a 10 because of the lack of "nature."
Nice free self contained campsite. Around 30 spots available, so not your place if you want to be the only one. We arrived around 5pm and still lots of places left. However still nice and quiet space with some noise from the Highway and train. Two public toilets and one cold outside shower for after you’ve been in the see (although it is not recommended to swim there). Also dumpstation and fresh water. Approx 15-20 minuten walk from the city center.
