We underestimated our return from Cape Reinga to Mangawhai so spent the night here. Good free spot overlooking sports fields. Big carpark but only 4 campers allowed overnight. You could hear cars and trucks passing the main road nearby but it didn't stop us sleeping. Not sure about the public toilets as we had a toilet in our camper but there is a picnic table to eat at. Not much to do in Kaikohe but we're checking out the nearby hot springs before we push on to Mangawhai this morning. Recommend this spot if you can't make it to your next destination. Great Chinese takeaway and fish and chips in the main road in the township.

Could be really worse. There are no facilities but some grass and not too much traffic. With a self contained vehicle it's a good spot to save some money.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Ff you are looking for a free spot to sleep and its 10pm, this one is maybe a spot for you. Otherwise there is nothing to see here. When we were sleeping here, some locals arrived and parked beside our van at midnight. They started yelling at each other. There is grass field were you can do sports.
