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.



Welcome to Riverlands Holiday Park, we are a five minute drive from Kaiapoi, a picturesque river town which has previously won the NZ Most Beautiful Town Award.

We are situated in the country with a quiet rural outlook, we have beautiful gardens, full amenities and a ten acre pitch and putt golf course. Riverlands is also a short walk to the banks of the Waimakariri River or a five minute drive to the boat ramp. Riverlands has access to some great walking tracks around the river and is handy for fishing, cycling or boating.

We are a fantastic place to start or finish your holiday being that we are in a great location easily accessed from the Northern Motorway and State Highway One, located just 15 minutes north of Christchurch and only 15 minutes from Christchurch airport.

Riverlands Holiday Park offers all the facilities you need for a great holiday, whether you're in a tent, small campervan or large motorhome.

We have two kitchen areas which are always popular gathering points in the evenings when guests come to cook and exchange stories of their travel adventures in New Zealand.

With the local town of Kaiapoi only being a five minute drive or a 30 minute walk away, it has a large choice of bars and restaurants, supermarkets and petrol station.

Check-in is at our reception, which you will see on the right as you come into our drive way off Doubledays Road. If you are arriving outside reception hours please let us know and we will make alternative arrangements for a hassle-free check-in.

We look forward to hosting you!

We payed $12.50 per person for unpowered. Absolute bargain this place is very modern and clean, free hot showers. It has a retirement village feel to it as the whole site has permanent residents by the looks who live in very nice homes. Definitely worth a stay

Plus: Perfect facilities, very friendly staff. We paid 35NZD for 2 adults and a 2 year old on a powered camper site. There is a golf course next to the camp site if you want to improve your swing.

Minus: the name riverside is a bit misleading since the camp site and the river are a 10m walk apart.

To conclude: great spot to start your trip!

Great campsite for a non powered van! We stayed here on the first night of our trip and then came back for the last two so we could play some golf at the course ($5 for rentals and 9 holes). Bathrooms were very clean and kitchen facilities were great too! We got charged $25 a night for two people in a non powered site. Very reasonably priced.

Great value for being right outside of Christchurch. Free hot showers with unlimited water! We were arriving late at night and they accommodated us with a late check in. The directions they gave us were very clear. One minor complaint is the space’s numbers can be hard to see late at night.

Were coming from kaikoura and weren’t going to arrive till 8. Called ahead and they said we could pay in the morning and they’d leave a pass for us. Paid $25 for 2 unpowered. Had plenty of toilets and showers (free hot water). Also has kitchen facilities and dump station. Campsite was quite spacious also. Would expect to pay $40+. Very good value

What a little gem! First come first served basis, staff are really very helpful and welcoming. The facilities are incredibly clean and actually smell great! Plenty of hot showers and toilets,fully equipped kitchen, laundry and tv room all well maintained. A nice river walk with a public access pathway through local dairy farms. A little playground if you have the chiln too! A very short drive into town and just a fantastic location in general. At only $15 for myself and the van each night it is cheap as chips for a peaceful and safe place to stay. Most other holiday camps charge double that for less & you get over crowding as a bonus...hmmm.
