Hi, we're Nola and Todd Morgan

Hi, we're Nola and Todd Morgan

The Morgan family has run Ohiwa Beach Holiday Park since its inception in 1988/1989. In late 2000 my husband Todd and our children, Dean and Renae arrived at the park. With time and a lot of hard work, the park has been built up to have full facilities for camping and a selection of units.

We made a commitment to be responsible for this special piece of Ohiwa for future generations. We have been rewarded with several awards for sustainable business practices which are still in place today.

Camping NZ NEW

Welcome to New Zealand's most comprehensive database of freely available camping information. This is the only travel map of its kind in NZ.



Nestled on the eastern shores of the Ohiwa Harbour in a sparsely populated segment of the Bay of Plenty lies a hidden gem, the settlement of Ohiwa.

The best places are always worth getting to, and our location is no different. With the Pacific Ocean and Ohiwa Beach only steps from the campground – and the Ohiwa Harbour even closer – we are a unique location ready to be explored.

This is our third or fourth time staying 😁Just the two of us a couple of times then our two youngest children with us the next time, then our adults kids this time along with our mokos, and my parents, brother, his wife and our nieces on the last night of our stay.
I recommend the showers around the beach side they're more modern than the older ones near the games room. We stayed in the basic kitchen cabin which was great. Pool wasn't heated (was advised on the booking) but the kids still braved the dip! We went to see the glow worms that was stunning and only a short walk in the ngahere. 🌳🌿Toilets and showers are always clean as in the cabins. My only concern is that there is no hand towels or air dryer to hygienically dry your hands in the camp toilets.
The proprietors are always lovely and of course the location is stunning.
We will be back as usual :)

This is a fabulous spot. You need a car to get there but once there you are in a beautiful location. The cabin we stayed in had everything needed and was very comfortable. Another heater was provided when asked for. Excellent fishing from the beach there.

Excellent place to stay for a quiet, peaceful, Autumn getaway. Super clean, helpful staff with the beach a short walk away. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and even managed to catch a fish or two. Highly recommend

A beautiful spot well away from the crowds in the off peak season. It is well resourced with helpful staff. We liked the fact that it is right on the beach and had nothing to distract you.

Hi. We stayed here just after the Ester rush had all left - what lucky day! The place was nicely active and friendly. We requested to park right up front by the dunes, which was awesome to wake up to that. We liked it so much, we stayed an extra night.

Got recommended by the office person to walk up the track behind the camp which we did. Nice walk. There is a heated pool at the camp too.
Nicely surprised to see they welcome DOGS here. And have an area by the dunes especially for camping dogs, so we will be back with our guy, who had to stay behind... : (

The place is clean and well kept, I can see why they get so many good reviews.
Keep up the good work guys : )

My expectations were surpassed. I found the camp and the area around was a hidden gem of New Zealand. I did paddel boarding in the estuary Saturday and Sunday morning and did heaps of walking. The regional park walk was a beautiful place. Accommodation was brilliant very clean and tidy bed was comfortable. The staff were all lovely and friendly.. I will be back.

Love Ohiwa holiday park, this is our 2nd stay and will be back next year, Close to the beach making it easy to swim everyday, we decided to stay an extra 2 days with friends and had to move to a non powered site, which was fine as we are fully S.C but didn’t like being charged the same for a tent site as a powered site!
