Welcome to Otorohanga Kiwi Holiday Park

Otorohanga Kiwi Holiday Park has a range of accommodation options, from fully self-contained units to campsites. Large bus and campervan sites with easy access.

The camping ground facilities include unmetered showers, large indoor/outdoor dining room with FREE BBQ, TV lounge, Sky TV, Wireless internet, and children's playground. Walking distance to the town's shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. You'll find our Waitomo accommodation just 45 minutes south of Hamilton City with the famous Hamilton Gardens and Balloons over Hamilton, or a 50 minute drive to Kawhia beach.

Otorohanga Holiday Park is also pet-friendly. The only accommodation and camping for your pet in the Waitomo and Otorohanga area. Rules for owners to apply.

Otorohanga Kiwi Holiday Park is the closest Holiday Park to the CBD. Enjoy a leisurely stroll to town facilities, through the neighbouring lake reserve.

We are a family owned and operated holiday park and have enjoyed extending nature through out our grounds. Starting with bare land over 23 years ago, nature was utmost important in our design. The 20 year old trees are now the benefit of guests, to enjoy plenty of shade in the summer and shelter in the winter. Enjoy the chatter of birds in the evenings and mornings. Explore the glow worms and adventure caving at Waitomo and see our native birds, kiwi at the nocturnal breading sanctuary in Otorohanga. Our park continues to grow, so keep watching for our new developments continually happening.

DON'T come here if you are in a TENT, you won't sleep among trucks, trains, cars and the sawmill which is operating until 11pm and open at 4am !!! Camp lightened all night which does not help... AWFUL.
Facilities very good despite weak wifi. Reception very helpful and gives you real tricks to escape commercial turism.

We arrived late in the evening and payed the next morning. Stayed in a tent. There is a road close-by so there is some traffic noise, but in our case it was not to bad. Showers and kitchen area were clean.

Fantastic place to stay...
Facilities were in great order, Greta showers and toilets, very clean.
Close and easy access from nearby caves.
Most of all amazing friendly helpful host. The owner was very accommodating with helping with our camper issue and nothing was any trouble.

If you’re in a tent avoid this place. Right by a main road with trucks accelerating past out of the town all night and in plain view of floodlights. So awful. Facilities were ok. Internet was only 30 mins free then you had to pay.

Friendly site with good facilities. We were going to stay at Waitomo but decided it would be nice to be near to a normal town instead of a tourist attraction. We were not disappointed. We walked across the railway line on the way in but came back via the road. We didn't notice any road noise and thought the price was reasonable. Toilets, showers and kitchen clean and well equipped. Oscar the cat was beautiful and friendly, we observed the don't feed him rule!

The office is open until 8:30pm if you need to book late. We were here for New Year! People from camping did lots of fireworks!! Facilities very clean and tidy. Fridge with freezer in the kitchen. We were the only ones in a tent and maybe 6 campervans. Big open grass space. Trampoline and play area for kids. 24hour gym (fees apply) if you want access. It cost us $55 for 2 adults and 2 kids age 2 and 4 unpowered site. You will need footwear at all times as the grass is thorny. Located right in town and right beside a train track. Be careful on your way out as the speed bump almost broke our car in half... friendly people on site.

Located between a railway and a heavy traffic/truck by-pass for town, you now and then shaking in your car. At the rear and of this campground is a laundry for local users as well as a fitniss center mainly for local users. Open 24 hours a day !!! Where other campgrounds expect and respect a 10pm - 7am quiet-rule this campground allows 24 hours through-traffic on their site for mainly local users!!! Why not open entry at rear end of campground for local users?
However campground itself is a 10/10. Well designed spacious ground and everything looks brand new, clean. Just great facilities.

I had a self contain unit. The unit was very clean and had everything I needed. Lovely tidy and well set out grounds, and very friendly hosts. Although I didn't have any kids with me, this would be a great place for the kids as there is plenty of safe space for them to run around. Thanks to Kelvin and Billie for having such a lovely park. The only downside would be if you are a smoker as they prefer smoking only within a particular area rather than outside your unit (however from a family (with kids) holiday point of view, I can also totally understand this). If you do stay here, you wont be disappointed. The trains never bothered me at all.

We could not fault the camp's cleanliness at all or the facilities on offer however the reception we received when we arrived was a bit grumpy and the camp rules and signage were a bit abrupt and almost rude I have seen more delicate rule lists on my tour. The park is very close to a railway which seemed to operate well into the night and was fairly loud. The wi-fi internet was extortionate compared to every other site we have been on - $22 for 24 hours compared to approx $5 - $7 elsewhere.
