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.
Friendly staff, great and clean facilities. Only negative is noise throughout the night from train, but this did not bother us too much.
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.
Fellow Aussie Travelers
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!
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
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.
This is a great camp ground,and I made good use of the gym.I will be back,next time Im in NZ
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.
Ok campsite, decent facilities. Short drive to waitomo
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.
Excellent camping ground with high quality facilities and friendly people. Great base for exploring the wider area
Great value for money, good facilities and an amusing goat.
Booked a standard cabin. The staff were pleasant: the cabin, kitchen and ablutions were tidy and of a good standard. The camp is easy walking distance to Otorohanga CBD. Only drawback is the nearby busy road - noisy at night.
This park was ok had some good facilities and was a good price, had a couple of old caravans with broken windows on site which let the place down alot! most of the extra facilities cost extra which is understandable but perhaps adjust the price of the stay slightly and get extras included in the price? staff were helpful. seemed to be alot of strange rules on back of the site map like "appropriate dress around the park at all times"
Otorohanga Holiday Park responds:
The only extra cost involved at our place is the use of the Fully Equiped Fitness facility at $5.00 and you can have the use of the facility as often as you like. Showers (with NO timers) are included in the tariff plus the BBQ is FREE. I do understand that unless you are use to using Fitness facilities then you possibly are unaware of the usual cost of a casual workout. I also think you must have our facility mixed up with another park as we don't have a rule about "appropriate dress"
