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.
Close to rotorua! No bad smells;) fanastic location right on the lake!
Cosy place near the Blue Lake. Very clean Showers and toilets. The showers for women have floor heating.
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.
We had a great stay here. The facilities were always clean and tidy and the staff helpful. The location is excellent, far enough away from town to enjoy the quiet of the lake and surrounding bush, but close enough that all the attractions and services of town are accessible. We will definitely be back.
très beau site, parmi le plus beau des Top10 que nous avons fait, devant le lac – vue magnifique, calme
de supers commodités – cuisine bien équipée, terrasse couverte pour manger, douches chaudes gratuites
cher (25$/adulte 18$/enfant en powered site) mais ça vaut le coup
Unfortunately we only stayed one night, but will be back in the near future. Has to have the best facilities of all the campgrounds we have stayed. Stunning location with awesome play grounds for the kids.

The campground is well maintained and the anemities are very well maintained as expected. The BBQ was good. Of course the price is expected for a Top 10 holiday park. The location wasn't very spectacular. The lakes have not been as attractive as expected. We used the place after a day in Rainbow springs and headed further south after a good night sleep.
Excellent park, friendly hosts.
Loved the lakefront so close to the park.
Lots of things to do around the area.
Clean facilities and excellent games room
Too expensive and crowded for us but for families I expect very good. Need to use all facilities to get moneys worth.
Overpriced but decent facilities. Showers and laundry were good and right next to blue lake. Wifi wasn't good and very expensive for $24 per person for powered site.
This site was a real find - out in a rural location but close to rotorua - without the sulphur smell. The lake was incredible, literally just across the road and we were able to select our preferred site for our campervan. The shop was incredibly well stocked and the staff were all friendly and helpful.
Blue Lake TOP 10 Holiday Park - Rotorua is open for business… Visit Website …now's your chance to take a closer look.
Like most, but not all Top 10 sites Blue Lake is well appointed and situated in a picturesque location across the road from the lake.
The cleaning staff was very rude
The amenities were scare, hundreds of people staying in the campground with very small kitchen, bath and laundry facilities. We had to dry our clothes at 1am because people were literally arguing over who would use the dryers. Cleaners did not stick to the posted schedules. Also the most expensive if the 4 top 10 sites we stayed and by far the worst.
Nice campground and friendly staff. Very clean shower house. Located in a beautiful area a little off the beaten path.
Helene & Peter
+: clean showers and toilets, no timer on showers when we were there, hairdryer available, clean kitchen with outdoor bbq, very quite next to the beautiful blue lake, very friendly staff
Idyllic weekend, really fabulous camp. Excellent facilities, the staff were all very friendly and helpful, good-sized sites, perfect location in a stunning area. We will definitely be returning.
Really loved our stay. Very clean, quiet and close to beautiful NZ birds with a view of the Blue Lake in front of this place. Well worth a visit. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Surprised by how well kept, clean and quiet this very large campground is. Beautiful setting, very helpful staff. Nice to be out of the Rotorua craziness, but close to everything we wanted to see in the area.
nice place to stay.
Stunning views over Blue Lake and good spacing between sites. Good facilities and easy to get into town.
Small playground, could be better.
Nice place on the lake, good shower facilities, bit low shower, not handy for tall people.
Beautiful location, very easy late checkin, friendly staff.
Staff amazingly helpful. Beautiful location on the banks of the Blue Lake. A stones throw away from Mt Tarawera and the Buried Village.
Very nice place at the lake within a rainforest. Clean, friendly, $45 for 2 adults and campervan. 10km from Rotorua and located outside the city.
Tidy, well serviced, comfortable.
General facilities excellent, clean, modern spacious, large ranges of facilities, staff always VERY helpful, why go anywhere else??
Excellent service and facilities, not cheap, nice location at lake.
Perfect scenery, a lot of space, clean ammenities.
R E Webb
First class (right on the lake).
It is clean and cosy but bathing facilities could need some 'shine up'. Very nice staff.
Stayed in small chalet. Excellent facilities, service and quite convenient location for visits out and good swimming.
Paul & Jayne Smith
Good location near the lake (not next to it) and excellent facilities.
Lilja Bjork Hermannsdottir
Clean, well equipped - very good service, but very impersonal place to stay I found.
Dick van Doorn
Good campsite with all ammenities.
Easy location at the Blue Lake. Everything is there but not very special.
Manager very obliging and informative - facilities good.
Bernhard & Brigitte Gosch
Very clean ammenities, secure places, price is okay, sometimes too small a number of showers/toilets.
Clean, but different shower quality for men/women: women have floor heating and not airy, men have no floor heating and very airy.
Nice and quiet in the midst of pristine nature.
Great place to stay. Absolutely beautiful place, we had a fantastic site with a perfect view of the lake. Facilities were very clean. Our kids loved the playground. Close enough to the city centre with no sulphur smell! Will stay there again without hesitation.
Nice lake, cold water.
Outdated, friendly staff, nice situated near the lake.
Beautiful, quiet location away from the business of Rotorua. Facilities were OK.
Fabulous setting. Good sites and good facilities.
Easy walk into city centre, they booked our tours for us which enabled us to use our Top 10 account. Fantastic amenities.
Very nice surroundings.
Fam de Kruyf
Beautiful spot but no restaurant, no shop and small swimming pool.
Good because it was near by the the town. There was pool for the kids.
A lovely setting and well positioned for lots of attractions.
Fantastic facilities, beautiful and quiet location.
Good pitches - 20c for showers!
Fantastic campsite in lovely location. Site very laid back but facilities excellent and staff knowledgable and helpful.
Beautiful spot, good BBQ.
BBQ and relaxing, nice social time.
Great BBQ site.
Was there on a Sunday - Lake was overcrowded.
Andy & Louise Dutton
Very good out of town, very clean met all requirements, free showers.
Alan & Lorna
Out of town but convenient.
Great site with good facilities. The weather was bad so the undercover BBQ area was great, as was the kitchen and dining room. It was really quiet when we were there (August) so I'm not sure what it's like during busy times, but the pitches were mainly hedged so you would get a bit of privacy.
Staff working there were nice, very friendly and helpful. The only downside is that despite the great lakeside location, there aren't any pitches with view of the lake, but it's still a good site for those wanting to get away from it all (there's nothing there apart from this campsite so take plenty of supplies!).
Excellent location next to lake and beach. Good internet facilities and kitchen etc.
Nice services in a beautiful location
Very clean. Good management.
Close to town and sights. Thermal baths are a plus.
Great site, hard standing free BBQ.
Mark and Natasha UK
Excellent! and a swim in the lake, first thing in the morning is amazing. Needs more ovens though!
Nice walking around lake.
Blue Lake TOP 10 Holiday Park - Rotorua is open for business… Visit Website …now's your chance to take a closer look.
Good service, a bit extra and nice area.
The service was good and friendly.
+ extraordinary location
- pricey! $20per person/night, pay for showers
Fantastic location, really helpful and friendly service.
Very helpful staff they take their time to inform you and give you suggestions. Very quiet campsite, surrounded by native bush.
Beautiful location, green spots, take a cool swim in the lake in the front! Clean toilets.
Lovely site, gentle walking, easy to get into Rotorua.
too few toilets and showers not very clean!
As good as any Top 10. go to blue Lake instead of Top 10 in Rotorua. It is much prettier and less smelly.
Good facilities, too many charges for services - once a campground is paid for we think things like showers should be free - outrageous kayak hire fees. (the location across from the lake + walking trail were beautiful).
Good clean site easy reach of town and wtare front.
Again excellent. Staff (Heather) very helpful as booked trip to maori culture night etc
Clean, friendly location, facilities all very good. More expensive than most but you get Blue Lake on your doorstep.
A very friendly and helpful staff. Good facilities!
Aart Van Nooy
Nice setting, clean, many facilities, expensive.
Antje & Sascha Häusler

Very good campsite with hedge boubdaries betwen pitches. Situation superb if you want quiet and peace . Well away from smells of Rotorua itself

Best Holiday Park as we've experienced so far!
We got robbed in Auckland (2 backpacks & GPS got stolen, window got smashed in) which resulted in a long day of filing a police report and returning our campervan for another one. We finally arrived at 21:00 at the Holiday Park. The owners were nice enough to stay open a little later than normal so we could check in, gave us lot's of information and in all gave us a warm & very welcome feeling. Pretty necessary after that day ;-).
We'll go back to New Zeland in two years time and we will definitely visit this Holiday Park again: next to the friendly & thorough service, there is a GREAT view at the lake, good hiking/ walking possibilities and good camping facilities.
Very helpful staff, lovely location.
Its not in Rotorua and its not very noisey. If you stay in Rotorua there are to many people.
