Kia ora, and welcome to Whakapapa Holiday Park

Whakapapa Holiday park

Whakapapa Holiday Park is located in the heart of Tongariro National Park which has dual World Heritage status because of it’s important Maori cultural and spiritual associations as well as its outstanding volcanic features.

We have a number of campervan and tent sites, cabins and a self-contained lodge which sleeps up to 32 people, all set within sheltering native beech trees and alongside a beautiful mountain stream.

The Holiday Park is 6km from Whakapapa Ski Field and at the base of Mount Ruapehu.

On our doorstep is the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. There are also many other stunning short and multi-day hikes nearby, some starting from the village.

Nearby are some great mountain bike tracks, one of New Zealand’s best trout fishing areas, guided and unguided river canoeing plus other fun outdoor activities.
