Murphy’s Holiday Camp is a nostalgic kiwi experience.

The iconic kiwi holiday that so many of us remember has become an endangered pastime. Beachside camping grounds are now few and far between. Murphy’s Holiday Camp holds strongly to the camping style we know and love. A place for families to create memories for the future.

After more than 50 years and now in its third generation, Murphy’s Holiday Camp is still proudly owned and operated by the same family who started this holiday spot way back in 1965.
Murphy’s Holiday Camp is situated on State Highway 2 midway between Te Puke and Whakatane.

This place is a new fav! Hands down one of the best camping spots ever! The price for what you get is incredible! All other reviews raved on about the immaculate facilities and they were ALL true!! Top quality location, top quality facilities! And the fact that the showers are hot and unmetered is almost unheard of these days so that was epic! First time at this place and definitely not the last! Managers were so chilled and easy going, just the whole experience was awesome! Yea the train is loud at night but all the other awesome things makes that one thing very insignificant! LOVED our stay and can’t WAIT to go back!

A great place to stay. Extremely clean and everyone is so nice. Was able to get a last minute booking due to a cancellation. Was so happy as we had the cabin right in front of the playground for our daughter and beach access was in front of the playground. Would absolutely recommend going here

Loved it here. Camped right on beachfront.
Lovely owner, friendly locals. Quiet and old worldly.
