Great freedom park, plenty of parking space for self contained campers. Diner & museum are fantastic. Huge breakfast nice coffee. Museum also well worth the money. Awesome place to stay overnite

Their rules have changed. No campervans without a full time bathroom, and no converted campers, irrespective of self containment certification. Save yourself the trip and avoid these guys.

This is private property. No cars. Vans only if built in toilet. Only motorhomes, caravans and buses that are totally self contained. Self contained does not only refer to having a toilet on board.

Free carpark, loud and busy even in winter.
Nothing more, did the job.
Security 7 days a week, don't risk it in non-self contained.

Only a carpark. Seemed as if there "live" some permanent campers. Unfortunately, the diner is only open during the day.

This is just a parking right next to a big traffic circle... Not that great, and a lot of people here (we arrived early, around 1:30pm but it was already really full, and it was low season (april)). There is absolutely nothing (no toilets or anything).
Anyway the parking is next to the city so if you walk you can go in town, and it's the only free parking for campervans in Hamilton, so it's okay

Must be self contained, was a bit noisy as in traffic noise. But the car Museum was great plus the coffee and breakfast was fantastic. No amenities. Only a car park.

Nice overnight camping area with lots of parking spots. Best part - it's free. There is no sign or anything that shows that it's allowed to camp here overnight but there were plenty of other campervan as we arrived at 7:30 pm so we just stayed there too.
