A visit to New Zealand is not complete without soaking in a hot pool you have created with your own hands - at the world renowned Hot Water Beach.

Hot Water Beach Top 10 is a family owned and operated Holiday Park, located just 700 metres from one of the top surf beaches on the stunning Coromandel Peninsula.

Our holiday park accommodation has a wide range of choices to satisfy the needs of all travellers. From our deluxe family villas, deluxe villas, ensuite villas, two or three bedroom motel, ensuite units, deluxe cabins, standard cabins, backpacker lodge, through to powered and non powered sites.

Most of our well-sheltered sites are 10m x 10m, so there is plenty of room for all your camping gear - even the boat! We've got a great range of on-site facilities, and we're within walking distance from the cafes and art shops.

Free spade hire is available.

$52 for two adults for an unpowered spot. The campground is very busy in the summer, as is the beach. The campground is basically just a big open field. The shower and toilet facilities are shared amongst the entire holiday park but they are clean.

This was our favourite camp site on the North Island! My husband and I stayed here the 1st night due to location and then the 2nd night because we liked the area so much and didn’t want to leave this camp! It is in a beautiful location and only a short walk via trail or road to Hot Water Beach. Powered camper van sites here are large and clean and come with a nice picnic table. The community kitchen is quite large and was always clean. The bathrooms were clean and there was never a line for toilets or showers. The hot showers are free but limited to 5 minutes. This is enough time, you just have to move fast! It is in line with the camp’s ideals for conservation of resources and green living. 😊 There many are recycling bins throughout the site. Staff is friendly and helpful. There is a small store on site with groceries and snacks. We didn’t buy food there, but we did purchase some local craft beers available there! There is playground equipment for kids (or adults, haha! We tried the bounce pillow and the swings and had great fun!) You must try Fish n Chips for dinner while you are here. The fish and chips were amazing and reasonably priced. Only drawback is that the WiFi is unreliable, as others have mentioned. It works, but kicks you off frequently. Not a big deal, really. We highly recommend this place and would definitely stay here again!

Front desk staff were very helpful and ensured a quick check in, kitchen was very well equipped and modern, nice facilities all round - if you want to see the hot water beach, be sure to go down at low tide, and do yourself a favour - hire a spade, I think they were $20 deposit, with a $5 dollar hire fee? Made all the difference.

Nothing to do other than visit the beach. The beach is half a km walk vs the advertised 'just down the road', and it's not a particularly nice beach.
Staff were friendly and helpful, but the place we boring with no cell signal. Paid for wifi, but that was not working most of the time, so waste of money.
Showers limited to 5 mins, but were clean, as were the toilets.

Nice staff and great place. Clean facilities and family showers. Great play area for kids. Walking distance to hot water beach. Only downside is its pricy and there is always a short line at the office, even off season. But we would definitely stay here again.

A great site for visiting the hot water beach and the surrounding area. We arrived at midday and were welcomed in a very friendly manner. Our motorhome pitch was of average size but was quite adequate for a single night's stay. The bathroom facilities were excellent - especially the presence of unisex showers (4 separate cubicles) which allowed much better utilisation of the facilities and avoided any queueing in the morning. Free spade were provided for Top 10 club members.

Of course the best place to stay to visit hot water beach. Shovels to rent for 5NZD. Loved the showers especially after having been to the beach at night. The huts seem very nice, but the tenting area that we stayed on was just squeezed in. No free wifi.

Very helpful staff. Great fun on the beach. Didn't have to dig a hole for the hot bath,It was easy to share in one that had already been dug.

Great campsite, especially if you have kids. Clean toilets and shower BUT showers have the 5minute button system, very annoying. The kitchen is ok but has no stuff to cook with, bring your own. If you are allergic to cats don't sit in the computer room, it lives there:( WIFI is not free and is slow.

Hi Folks,

the campground was in a very neat state and for the time being there was not muach happening. A very quite and relaxed place. I guess it must be different in High Season.

Due to the fact that we had a membership card for Top 10 we received a shovel for free and got a trike for half an hour. That was good for the kids. Also the jumping pillow as well as the play ground were in a good state. The staff was very friendly and the fact, that a family bathroom was available was of great comfort. Nice place. Though we paid much, as expected by top ten.

Cheers

Good site - clean, spacious and lots of facilities (the dryer even got our clothes bone dry!). Our children loved the play area and bouncy pillow. You do pay for such good facilities - it's by far the most expensive campsite of our holiday so far, and the only place that asked for payment for our 16-month-old. No free wifi either, and no flexibility on check-out time. Even so, we ended up staying an extra night as it was so close to a number of amazing attractions.
