Unpowered Tent Sites

We have many tent sites throughout the park, many of which enjoy great lake views.

Our unpowered sites range in size. We have sites suitable for small tents, up to larger sites with enough room for a family tent, car and boat. When you book, please let us know your requirements so we can allocate the right site for your needs.

Communal camping areas such as the lounge, BBQ area and kitchens have a friendly, sociable atmosphere, and are a great place to meet like-minded travellers. Please note that while kitchens feature ovens, cook tops, microwaves and fridge/freezers, you will need to bring your own cookery equipment such as pots, pans & cutlery.

Over our busy period it may not be possible to fit your car and boat on your site, so it may need to be stored elsewhere on site. We recommend you carry a suitable security/locking system for this possibility.

Guest Reviews

 'I loved camping here! There is nothing nicer then going to sleep with the sound of the lake and wildlife around you.'

'The location is undeniably great. No matter where you are placed, it is just a minute or two's walk to the lakeside'

'The staff were lovely, location fantastic, amenities great, and there were even some lovely dogs and ducks to greet us on arrival.'

'Of seven holiday parks we visited in the South Island, this was definitely one of our favorites. Gorgeous location with easy access to lakefront as well as nearby hot pools and restaurants in the village. Very clean washrooms and kitchen facilities.'
