Just off the road (but not overly noisy), clean flushing toilette, set in the parkinglot of a lovely little walk featuring 500 yr old Kauri trees, a little river, creek, and a waterfall or 2 depending on how much time you'd like to spend.

Ups: Clean place, 3 spots for SC Camers, two toilets which were pretty clean but get locked at 10pm and reopend in the morning (6:30 am was we checked).

Down: pretty noisy since directly next to a road. No great view or anything like we hat at some sites close to the sea.

Pretty much what you expect for a free spot downtown.

Pretty much

3 spaces for overnight that are on slightly uneven ground which is why we are givi Nd it a 9 out of 10 instead of 10. Flush toilets, water fountain, garbage can, and great walk to the falls and tree canopy so be sure to plan enough time to go for a walk while you stay here!

Very good, toilets well maintained and an amazing walk to the falls just on the doorstep. 3 spaces to stay in for any type of vehicle. Would recommend.

Not sure about the previous reviewer, but the toilets were open all night. There are some great hikes!! Beautiful scenery and river walks. I highly recommend.

Lovely spot but the toilets close in the evening so not suitable for non self contained!!! Very annoying!! Also the parking is at a slight hill so might be a wonky nights sleep

Great secluded spot for 3 vehicles- non-self contained accepted here. Clean public toilets and fresh drinking water. Would recommend making time to walk around the forest and see the waterfalls- beautiful!
