Holiday Park Facilities

Lake Tekapo Holiday Park offers all the facilities you need for a great holiday, whether you're in a tent, small campervan, large motorhome, or in one of our cabins.

We have two kitchen areas which are always popular gathering points in the evenings when guests come to cook and exchange stories of their travel adventures in New Zealand.

The village is nearby (one minute drive) or a short 10 minute walk with a supermarket, petrol station, gift shops, great cafes and restaurants. Tekapo Township also has all the tourist operators you would expect to find in a New Zealand holiday destination.

Check-in is at our reception, which you will see on the left as you come down the hill on Lakeside Drive from Highway 8. If you are arriving outside reception hours, please let us know and we will make alternative arrangements for a hassle-free check-in.

BBQ Facilities & Picnic Area

We have plenty of BBQs in front of our main kitchen block, and some outside the Standard Cabins. These are free to use – just turn the gas on and fire away! 'The BBQ area must surely have one of the best views in the world. I've certainly never seen better!' says one happy camper.


Our kitchen facilities offer ovens, microwaves, fridge/freezer, table and chairs, instant hot water and toasters. Please note, the kitchens are not supplied with pots, plates, cutlery etc but if you do forget to bring something just ask reception and they will help you.



Located in our main facilities block, our laundry has four large-capacity washing machines and four dryers, both of which operate on $2 coins ($4 per wash; $2 per 20 minutes of drying time). Washing powder is also available at $2 for two washes.

Television Lounge

Our warm, comfortable lounge has sofas, table & chairs, and a widescreen television.


24-Hour Security

For your peace of mind, we provide 24-hour camp security via locked gates – accessed 24/7 via a swipe card issued to you on arrival.


Showers & Toilets

Lake Tekapo Holiday Park has great showers with plenty of hot water and baby bath facilities (no charge) in the ladies shower area. Please note: the showers are on a 6 minute timer.


Water & Dump Station

Fresh drinking water is available from taps throughout the holiday park. A dump station is conveniently located for the disposal of your campervan grey water.


Smaller children will love our little playground, while a second playground on the lakefront is great for older children with its big climbing elephant and tractor.
