Large gravel area right off the main street of Hillsborough. Very quiet, stayed 2 nights. Lots of other rigs overnight. Local traffic throughout the day for the Train museum, dog walking and path around the marsh. Hopewell rocks 15min drive.

Mostly as described. The bathrooms are locked at night due to kids vandalizing. The Quilt owner locks on weekends? Check out Albert County Naturals in one of the huts across the street . Specialized and unique products. Say Hi to Sydney for us.

Right beside the Railway Museum. What a beautiful spot. Quiet from about 11pm through until around 8am. 3 other rigs here for the night. Definitely recommend coming here and taking time to explore the town.

yes great spot, I also post office, play ground and picnic tables. great stop before Mocton. There ia a great walking trail just across from the parking lot. Immaculate bathrooms, what a nice town.

We’re thankful for this spot. It was fairly late when we left Hopewell Rocks and this is so close. The downside is that the local kids use this area and the adjacent museum parking lot to meet and hang out and make a LOT of noise. There were quads, dirt bikes, cars, and pick-ups tearing around, revving engines, and playing loud music until just after 11pm (on a Wednesday). After that it was quiet and we got a good sleep. There is a washroom and playground across the street. It’s really an ideal set-up. It’s just too bad about the noise.

Very nice place. Parking gravel, toilets open in evening, picnic table and garbage cans. Ice cream stand just across road and past toilets. Some noise from motorbikes, cars early evening. Stayed 2 nights.

Great place to stay. We were here two nights. It’s across the street from the Visitor Center where we got discount tickets for Hopewell Rocks Park which is also a great place to visit. Across the street is an ice cream store and public bathrooms. Next door is the Train Museum. The other place we liked visiting in town was Cinnamon Soul Cafe, definitely go here!

Relatively flat gravel lot adjacent to a city park. Grocery around the corner and up a block. Ice cream and restrooms across the street. Decent cell signal. Big sign saying free parking. View of a nice pond. No hot water in the restrooms but they are clean and appear to stay open. Road noise is present but not too loud.

Very nice place to stay. We stayed 2 nights in a row and it is very quiet. We heard a few cars pass, but at night it was very quiet. Toilets open 24h and are clean. You can look at the trains at the museum and it was interesting! 10/10 would recommend!

Belle place tranquille. il y a de la place pour plusieurs VR de toutes grandeurs.
Au musée vous pouvez faire le plein en eau. Le robinet est sur le côté de la bâtisse. Pas beaucoup de pression, faut pratiquer notre patience 😉. Bel endroit, on y retournera sans hésiter.. A seulement 15 minutes des Hopewell Rocks.

great spot as advertised. washrooms are very clean and have power. big gravel lot to park in will hold a lot of overnight campers.

A big lot right across the road from a small playground and a little pond. There are bathrooms, signage says they are open 9-5 but were open all night when I stayed. There was a fair bit of traffic in and out of the lot until later at night, but not too bad. The trails nearby are incredible!

Hello
what a special place to park your motorhome for the night.
You'll sleep between an old army plane and some old wagon on the railways
Some teenagers with their cars do some noise near the office.
If you are near the plane it'ok.
On or two cars in th evening come on the parking and listen music but after midnight it was quiet.
Clean restroom, nice place, free, quiet night....what else?
Thank to the town for this place.
Enjoy your trip

super endroit avec de grandes toilettes, une pour femme et une pour homme, très bien entretenu. on peut aussi planter la tente il y a des aires d'herbes.
on est aussi allé au cinnamon café ; trop cher pour ce que c'est. on a marché sur le sentier qui part sur la gauche de l'emplacement de camping et c'était sympa !

Expect traffic and yougsters showing off their modified cars in the evening. Other than that it's a good place for a pit stop. Short trails around the marsh, playground and clean washrooms with changing station.

This was a very nice and safe place to sleep. All of the commodities were available, exept for showers. We were not sure if we could sleep in a tent, but an other guy did it and there was no problem. Just be sure to wake up quite early, because by 8:30 there was some people walking by.

large parking lot facing information center and a playground for kids with toilets opened 24h (possible to charge appliances thanks to power sockets there). Quiet, behind the post office and 50m away from library that has unsecured wifi network. Good spot for a night with kids and/or pets too.
