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.
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.
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.

All of the facilities were kept clean and tidy and can’t recommend this camp ground enough.

Such a great place to stay! - We had a fantastic 10 day stay in our caravan for the week prior to Christmas (even with a few rather wet days).
Their 10pm quiet curfew is also great for families and those of us needing a good sleep after big and busy days on, around and by the lake.
Thanks for continuing to be one of the best campgrounds!

The kitchens were clean and functional but... read more it was a bit annoying not to have any cooking or cleaning utensils whatsoever - not even a dish cloth or teatowel.

Providing this should not cost much - op shops are full of cooking pots and plates. Just a suggestion. Beautiful location and lovely lake walk.
