Welcome to Blue Lake Top 10 Holiday Park

Welcome to Blue Lake Top 10 Holiday Park Rotorua - Rotorua's only Top 10 Holiday Park located on the picturesque and stunning Blue Lake offering quality accommodation from motels to camping sites.

Nestled on the edge of the beautiful Rotorua's Blue Lake, Blue Lake Top 10 Holiday Park Rotorua has over 14 acres of well-maintained grounds set in a tranquil native bush setting. Blue Lake Top 10 has been awarded a Qualmark ENVIRO GOLD award for Environmental practices.

Next time you think about coming to Rotorua for mountain biking, why not choose Blue Lake Top 10 Holiday Park Rotorua with the mountain bike trails and lake only a short distance from your Rotorua camping accommodation. Our Rotorua holiday park is located a short 10 minute drive from the centre of Rotorua, offering the best of both worlds - close to attractions and shops, yet removed from the bustling city environment.

Blue Lake Top 10 Holiday Park Rotorua is conveniently located to take advantage of surrounding lakes Okareka, Tarawera and Tikitapu (Blue Lake). The Blue Lake area also hosts a number of NZ sporting events throughout the year, so be sure to book early and get close to the action! There are great boating and watersport opportunities close at hand, whether it's waterskiing, kayaking, dragon boat racing, fishing, jet skiing, swimming or simply relaxing. Blue Lake hosts the annual Rotorua Xterra event.

We had an awesome stay with Top10 - the facilities were all very clean and well maintained despite our stay falling in rain season. A stunning location right at lake Tikitapu. Staff were amazing & friendly demonstrating their manaaki by going above and beyond to dry our soaking wet mattress in quick time. Nga mihi, we will be back some time

Popped In Tues 1 Feb to have a look around prior to a prospective stay.
Asked to pay $5 each to view the Park.
Said no immediately as this is the worst of worst in public relations.
All our camping friends totally agree with our stance.

Awesome Camping Spot on the edge of Rotorua. Right by the lake with good walks and Mountain Biking close by. Facilities were clean and great showers.

Nice kitchen facilities and a decent amount of showers.

The main feature is undoubtedly the view of the lake, which is directly across the road.

On a sunny day, it’s well worth the fee.

Thought $60 a bit expensive for a powered site. Nice location, big site with parrots flying in the trees. Made use of the free hot tub. Office said they stayed open until 8pm but had closed up by 7.40pm.

Very big campsite. Helpfull desk, explained the membership (we took cause of the ferrydiscount), suggested walks and booked our Maori-experience for us. It was our first campsite so we played it safe. Very clean facilities. A bit expensive and touristy in hindsight but then it's a holidaypark and you know what to expect from a chain. Nice walk around the blue lake which is also a watersport and swim-lake.

For a Top10 camping, the facilities were pretty basic. There are hot showers but only limited to 5min.
I recommend not to chose this camping because of the name, the lake is on the other side of a road and not that pretty.

A super clean and spacious camping ground. Well laid out with clean and modern facilities. Some lovely shady spots too.
Camp ground needs a heated swimming pool for out of season swimming (lake will be freezing).
Really friendly staff.

We attended the park and we were very disappointed in how we were treated. Some issues came up and we asked to speak to the manager, unfortunately she was very rude. I’m a 28 year old professional and was spoken to very poorly. Customer service really needs to improve.

Nice location and pitches, but that is about it. We were told the wrong price over the phone, so not a good start when we turned up. Everything else was just a bit of a pain - nice clean kitchen but NOTHING out, you have to go ask reception for everything - ridiculous! Unless you are a Top10 member you got no WiFi. Also be aware some networks will have no signal here either! Showers etc all nice and clean, did spot a vehicle wash area on way out too. They just need to ease up on some silly policies.

Very rude management which makes it a very unpleasant place to stay. Said I was very disappointed as we always choose to stay here, and owner replied, so do thousands of others. Obviously return customers are not highly regarded. Very noisy at night and early morning on weekends. I would never stay here again and would definitely not recommend here to anyone. There are quite a few holiday parks to chose from so avoid this one.
