Rapahoe Beach Holiday Park is a favourite place for groups and families (including your furry friends) to spend your holidays and experience camping the old school way, literally in the grounds of an old 1930s school! Located just 11km north of Greymouth, this quiet, secluded location immediately on the beachfront offers a range of facilities and activities for your comfort and relaxation – all while being central to a range of popular West Coast tourist attractions. Favourite pastimes for visitors include swimming in the “school pool” or on the beach, gemstone hunting, fishing, observing the local seal colony at Point Elizabeth, checking out the amazing geological papa rock and limestone features on the rugged northern point, or whitebait fishing on the river nearby. Maybe you would just like to simply read a book from our library or teach the kids a few of the old school board games? There’s something for everyone. ​Motorhome and caravan sites (powered or non-powered), as well as tent sites available. Due to renovations by the new management, there are limited cabins and caravans for hire. These will be added to during 2023 as we continue to develop the grounds.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Location is on the beach with a protected berm from the direct impact of the Tasman sea. Small sites, but it’s right on the beach. Enough said. All other amenities are what you would expect from a beach HP. Clean, and we’ll maintained. We stayed in one of the small cabins to escape the rain. It was very clean and comfortable.

I loved the location, the people and the stones! Simple and stunning and oh what beautiful sunsets :) one of my absolute favourites on the West Coast. Would definitely recommend this spot for a relaxing getaway. We were blessed with sunshine and good weather which just made it a perfect stop for a few days on our travels down south. Thank you Rapahoe

The views was excellent. Toilets could do with update but all other facilities were great. The swimming pool was a good size as were the pitches. We had rain on the night we stayed but it was still a lovely place to stay. The bbq looked good for a sunny evening.

Beautiful location, easy booking and straight forwards comms, clean and tidy facilities with lovable character. One of our top favourites. Sites from 15-25 (from memory) were facing the beach and were therefore prime spots. We were just happy to have a site for the reasons noted above.

What a fantastic holiday park. Beautiful surroundings right by the sea. Lovely facilities and management couldn't have been more helpful. Everything you need without the holiday craziness. Beautiful, serene and we were very very happy. Definitely be back.

Hidden gem! If I could tell the manager/owner I met as we were checking out What a wonderful time we had! I'm sorry I forgot your name but we were watching my fiance try to empty our tanks for the first time when we were there. Your little boys were running around. We keep thinking about what a wonderful place you have and wish your family all the best!

This little gem of a holiday park was just what we needed. It’s so family and dog friendly. Right on the beach with real old time camping. The sites are spacious and many are very sheltered. The owner couldn’t be nicer and so down to earth. Made us feel at home. I can’t wait to go back

Stunning spot well worth a visit. New management have turned this place around & I love it. Sunsets from here are simply amazing. Dogs are welcome on a lead & they love the beach walks. It’s a great base to explore the surrounding area

Great place, great value for money- super reasonable compared to the area!! All campsites were level and offered some sort of privacy wall/bush/plants etc Toilets and other facilities were centrally located so never a far walk. Beach was a stone's throw away with spectacular views and beautiful sunset. Lounge/dining area was well stocked with books, games, toys and loads of seating. Kitchen was small but never felt crowded. Super friendly staff! had a great stay!
