The Closest Camp to Tauranga City Centre.

Tauranga Tourist Park is an affordable small sheltered camping ground located only 4 kilometres from the city centre.

We are a family owned and operated park and are 5th generation Kiwis. Our park caters mainly for campervans, caravans and mobile homes with power/non power sites, cyclist sites, basic one room cabins and an en-suite cabin is also available.

We are a dog friendly campground although conditions do apply.

We have stayed here previously in 2020, a very clean, quiet campground.
We have had to cancel a 5 day stay due to covid and they were very quick to refund our deposit.
Very friendly accommodating staff
Thank You

A lot of long term people who will follow your footsteps from day 1 to see if you do something wrong.
The second day we were already bothered by a neigbour who basicely said they don't like travelers arround and after telling her to mind her own business I was being threatened to leave the park by an older man who worked there who didn't even asked me what happened.
There are only 4 tentsites and the rest is all moterhomes.
We felt extremely unwelcome!!
Do not go here!!

Lovely family owned camper van site, powered ones don’t get a spot with a view. Very clean and safe facilities, radio in the toilets to jam to in the shower. Cute local cats looking for cuddles too. $38 for 2 people in a powered site, great price!

Lovely place! Nice owner, clean facilities, hair dryer available, kitchen a bit small though, the rest was perfect! Paid 40$ for two people for a non powered site.

About a 20 walk to The Strand where all the restaurants are in Tauranga. Really nice owners and facilities are always immaculate. Dogs welcome. Quite an urban site but backs onto the water. Few permanent residents but all elderly and friendly. Would stay again.
