This was our first site using our camper van. The staff on reception were helpful with local walks give the bad weather the kitchen was clean large and equipped with lots if utensils. The shower block was ok it was very cold inside but did the job. Overall not a bad park and given this is the first one we had stayed in we felt it had everything we needed. Would recommend given the walks in the area are also close by.

Zero complaints for this holiday park! I rate this as one of the best places we stayed during our trip. We had plenty of space in our powered campsite and loved how close we were to so many hiking tracks. My husband said his shower was good but I think I got a dodgy one ( whoops ). Everything was clean though and for the internet crazy, they provided you with free, unlimited wifi which was really fast considering how remote this place is. Make sure you book a spot though as it was completely booked out when we were there and saw many people get turned away.

We stayed two nights at the Whakapapa Holiday Park, it is confortable, clean, very convenient if you want to walk in the Tongariro. But most importantly the owners are the nicest people we've met!! They did everything they could to make us happy, we really appreciated it. Do not hesitate to stay there!

We were travelling around the Norh Island and found this lovely camping site in Whakapapa. Good kitchen and laundry facilities and free WiFi. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend it to other campers.

We planned a night's stay in a powered site before making our way up the mountain the following morning. On arrival a nice bloke gave us info on bus timings, amenities, etc. Second day, after a whole day of playing in the snow our campervan broke down and could not engage gear while at the top of the mountain. As such we had to make contingency plans and settle a second night in Whakapapa Holiday Park. Jenny was so kind to offer us a reasonable price to stay in the cabin for a second night after the AA road assistance drove us down from the mountain back to the park. Terry kept checking on us to make sure the kids were warm and made it as comfortable as he could. Snowfall conditions were getting worse yet the fire place was nice and warm. I thank Terry for driving us back down from the mountain on the second day in his bus with our luggage, food, baby seats, peripherals and the entire kitchen sink. Thank you.

Campervan spots were nice and clean, and we stayed in a lot near to the kitchen. Dining hall was warm with sufficient heaters.

Location was perhaps the best in relation to going up Whakapapa Ski Fields.

Hi Chang, The start for the Northern Circuit track is about 200 metres down the road from our Holiday Park. From the track entrance it is a 3 hour walk to Mangatepopo hut, the first hut on the track. If you are referring to... More
