Gather, relax and enjoy time together at The Camp*

The Camp, formerly The Lake Hawea Holiday Park, is your quintessential Kiwi camping experience. The Camp is beautifully basic and authentic which is why it has been a popular destination for campers, tourists and adventurers since 1971.

Close to the resort towns of Wanaka and Queenstown, The Camp has a wide range of accommodation options, good facilities and plenty of activities to suit couples, families or groups.  

Recently, The Camp has earned the prestigious Sustainable Qualmark Gold accreditation, so you can rest assured you are staying at one of New Zealand’s best regenerative and sustainable tourism destinations!

We’re excited to see you all soon.

*We aim to keep The Camp a safe, fun, environmentally responsible and enjoyable place for all. Check out our FAQ’s or contact us if you have specific questions.

Tent sites

Our tent sites are the real deal as you get to choose where you would like to go. So you can choose to be near the lake, in the woodland area, under the shade or out in the sun.  Once you had set up you will be able to explore or just hang at your site.

Powered sites

Choose a stunning lake vista or a more private setting a couple of rows back. We have powered sites for vans, campervans and caravans to pull up, plug in and relax.


A traditional favourite for many campers, these cabins are a great option for those seeking a basic, yet private sleeping solution. Facilities are communal.
