The sign said “Park in an empty park, plug yourself in and make yourself comfortable and we’ll be round”. .. or words of that effect. We were just parking when a huge smile appeared around the corner of the next door Motorhome helping us to park.

I’d heard all about Cruzin N Stop before and was keen to try it out. It is right in the middle of Thames and is perfectly located for checking out the shops and cafes so I was immediately scoring huge brownie points with Fiona 🙂
For $20 including power for NZMCA members with toilets and a shower. Its a neat wee place to stay right in the middle of things. Its not a place you would go for a holiday given that it comes with in town distractions but its safe, handy, good value and the people are really helpful.
We stayed the night here on route to Coromandel. The road up the coast was closed due to slips and washouts and after a stroll around the town and a good gander at some antique shops, we headed back to Rafe and settled down some good old fashioned Netflix movies while it rained. Fiona on one TV, me on the other 🙂
The next morning, we walked the other way and after a visit to the Dump Station, we were off over the hill.
A neat spot to stop for a night or two, very very handy to everything in Thames and great people. At $20 with power and other facilities in the middle of town, it’s pretty reasonable.

I like that idea, good for solo travellers to feel safe too.
sounds great and safe to for a woman alone.
we’ve stayed there a few times when we have a stall at a market in Thames. Great for security and so central.
Are you able to stay there in a caravan ? Or is it only for motorhomes please .
I’m sure you can but its really setup for Motorhomes. I think it would depend how busy they are at the time for access.
Re Tracker Map -I’m interested in how you find the tracker you are using, and what unit installed on Rafe,
Hi Roland. The one I have is very basic and I’m just using it for maps of where I’ve been and how to get there. Armada gps have much better units which give you heaps more.
Thanks, will check out
