Welcome to the Omarama Top 10 Holiday Park, one of New Zealand's Premier Holiday Parks, set in the high country of New Zealand's South Island. For outdoor adventure and an unforgettable New Zealand vacation, come to Omarama Top 10 Holiday Park

Omarama is the gateway to Mt Cook to the north and Queenstown to the south via the spectacular Lindis Pass, with the Waitaki Valley and its beautiful lakes to the East. We are on the doorstep of the Mackenzie Basin in the South Island High Country heartland.

Imagine being beneath the gaze of the country's tallest mountain, breathing in New Zealand's clearest air, looking up at the reflection of the bluest lakes in the brilliant sky.

So come and relax in one of our park motel units with your own facilities, while guests in the standard cabins or on our campsites (either powered or unpowered) can make use of our well appointed communal facilities.

There is wireless all round the park if you bring your own laptop, Ipod or notebook or you can use our well equipped internet kiosk for your internet requirements

The playground never loses its attraction for the children and the Omarama Stream can always provide a refreshing dip on our hot summer days.

The park is close (a few steps!) to a number of awesome cafes and restaurants - including the Wrinkly Rams (sheep shearing experience and cafe/restaurant) and our friendly 'local pub'. There is also a post office and Lotto inside the local supermarket just a short stroll away,

So whether you want to go tramping, fishing, boating, mountain biking, kayaking, skiing, playing golf, gliding, dining out or relaxing in the hot tubs , there will be a bed for your budget in the Omarama Top 10 Holiday Park.

We stopped in Omarama after deciding to skip Tekapo and Twizel, bit gutted the pools were closed but had an awesome meal at the local pub and the haberdashery was well worth a visit.

Campsite was super tidy and clean, again The bathroom heating was almost non existent and showers are 5 minutes so not great when trying to wash up with a toddler, in summer though we reckon it’d be smashing.

Lil dude was gutted he couldn’t play on the giant jumping pillow due to the frost but it looked awesome!!

Very nice campground, but right beside he highway so a little traffic. Kitchen nice and large and washrooms clean and good. Lounge area to sit in. Only issues we had were the maintenance, they gravelled the road for the first 2 hours we were there and would have continued well past 530pm for dinner but we mentioned the noise to the owner and he asked them to come back the next day. Unfortunately they also had a carpenter working on new builds well past 7pm which was again very annoying and inconsiderate. Bonus was heading to the outdoor Hottubs down the street for a soak and reprive. Highly reccommend the hot tub soak spa for sure! 1.5 hours in a private oasis in at the base of the mountain in a wood fired hot tub. It is a must do!

Good sized camp ground, not too dry like some we’ve been to. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Kitchen has some pots and pans you can use, lots of toasters and microwaves and a bar along one side for people charging things! Really handy. Cost was $45 for two people, I think $25 for one person so not cheap. Close to a pub/bar (on the corner, good food. I think it was called gumboots and jandels) as well as Four Square and petrol station. Free hot showers but limited to 6 mins I think. Great place to stop for the night if you want good facilities!

The first top 10 on the road for us. The site itself is opposite of a gas station and some shops. It was a fine campsite for some peace and quiet. It was not that crowded and the tent sites were spacey and relaxed. The kitchen was well equiped. Pretty good for a top 10 site.

Good location, right next to stores.
Good kitchen and spacious.
Showers were disappinting. A button that opertes them, and if you press more than once, you get "punished" with 3 minutes of cold water. Also if more than 1 person takes shower at the same time the pressure is really low.

This camp is lovely, located on the main road near lots of eating alternatives, and adjacent to a fast flowing tree-lined stream. The manager was friendly and helpful. Facilities are clean. Laundry had a large number of commercial grade machines. Campsites are large and grassy with picnic tables, and there's a playground. We walked to the local pub for dinner. This was a very enjoyable stay.

I liked it here. It was fairly quiet and for good reason $38 per night for single person on an unpowered site. However the showers were great and the kitchen roomy. Clothes washing is 2 x $2 coins and the dryer is the same cost for 30 mins. There are sinks and a washing line if you would rather do any washing by hand. For $5 you can purchase 10GB that covers a 24 hour period. Speed around 6Mb/s.

We arrived late in the evening with no booking and they were extremely accomodating. Even lent us a better pump to pump up the airbed as ours broke. Top marks.
