Blue Lake TOP 10 Holiday Park


Rotorua’s only TOP 10 Holiday Park located on the stunning Blue Lake, offering quality accommodation from Lakeview Motel units to spacious powered & non-powered camping sites. We are the perfect home away from home for you and your family to relax and unwind. Awake to the chorus of native birdsong, start your day with a walk through native forest followed by a dip in the crystal clear waters of Lake Tikitapu.

Why Blue Lake?

Perfectly situated for fun and tranquility

The Blue Lake (Tikitapu) is one of the closest lakes to Rotorua. You can swim, kayak, paddle board, water ski, sail, or fish for trout, right from our doorstep. Along with an easy walking track that circles the lake taking in beautiful beaches, native bush and the Whakarewarewa Redwood Forest.

Our holiday park is only a short 10 minute drive from the centre of Rotorua offering you the best of both worlds – close to attractions and shops yet far enough from the city to enjoy being surrounded by nature.

An activity gold mine

There is so much to do in Rotorua

Allow yourself plenty of time in Rotorua – there is more to do and experience than you realise!! There’s the natural mineral Polynesian Spa; the spectacular Wai-O-Tapu; the Buried Village, New Zealand’s most visited archaeological heritage site; the Redwoods Treewalk, where you are up in the tree tops. There’s Skydiving, Velocity Valley, Rafting, Skyline Gondola and Luge, Rainbow Springs Nature Park, world class Mountain Biking and so so much more.
