Closed as doing renovations, we stayed in the carpark next door at playground



Big paddock with hardstand for about 10 SCC vehicles in the middle. Not very attractive but ok to go to pools. No toilets or facilities except water tap & dump. Dump is in the middle of the hardstand... I wouldn't want to camp next to it. Haha. Easy walk over the grass to the pools across the road. Close to the main big pools too. Book with auckland council parks.

CLOSED padlocked gates. Can't access dump spot. Apparently have to get code on line. Ph no on sign knows nothing about the place.Went on to Shelley Beach to dump, large area but access to dump uphill and not easy for caravans.
