Waikite Valley Thermal Pools Campground
Did you know we have a campground adjoining the hot pool complex? We have both powered and unpowered sites, and our camping fees include unlimited access to the main hot pool complex.
Blue Lake Top 10 Holiday Park
Blue Lake TOP 10 Holiday Park is located at Lake Tikitapu, just a 15-minute drive from the city centre. As well as sites for tents and motorhomes, there are cabins and more comfortable motel style units to choose from.
