Lake Taupo Holiday Resort is a large campground with superb facilities, and located only 5 mins drive up the road from the Lake, shops and restaurants.
The best thing about this campground is the lagoon pool with a swim-up bar (if you’re that way inclined).
They play movies in the pool twice a day and if you're travelling with children, be warned, you will never see them! The kids will be so busy, that you’ll have lots of time to relax.
There’s also lots of great walks to do around Taupo.

Don’t forget to organise a booking for the spa while you’re there and book one of the #nzmustdo helicopter rides over the Glacier.
Te Anau Top 10 Holiday Park
Famous for it's lake, and for being the gateway to Fiordland and Milford Sound. Milford Sound is known internationally as the eighth wonder of the world, with it's majestic mountains, fiords, waterfalls and wildlife, including penguins, dolphins and seals.
The Te Anau Holiday Park was a hit with our family!
We visited in October, so it was still a bit cold in the South Island, stopping here after doing a boat trip in the Marlborough Sounds – another #nzmustdo.
The campground has a large family room with a big open fire - great place to play cards.
They also have a hot tub, but make sure you book a spot because it books up fast!
A short walk to local shops and the stunning lake.
We also recommend checking out Mirror Lakes, which are on the way to Milford Sound.
