Responsible Tourism

After riding the Hauraki Rail Trail, the Park is situated only 2 km flat riding from the exit of the trail. We offer free tools for your bike maintenance, secure under cover storage of bikes and bags. Shuttle services call in daily, so you can enjoy the area on and of your bicycle. As most Cottages are self contained you don t need to pack any bedding with your bikes. Once you arrive here, your children will enjoy the challenges offered by the adventure rope park and playground in the trees.

Te Aroha Holiday Park is located past the racecourse and only 3 km from the famous Te Aroha Soda Hot Springs. This is the only hot water soda spring in the Southern Hemisphere and is responsible for the silkiest skin after you have had a bath.

Only a short drive from Hobbiton.

Holiday Park facilities

An outdoor seasonal swimming pool, in ground all year heated mineral water rock pool, hydrojet massage pool, communal kitchen and dining facilities, tree swings and an adventure playground with huge flying fox, a grass tennis court with plenty of BBQ’s mean its an ideal camping ground for families and groups, backpackers, school groups, and motor-home travellers.

It is spacious enough to provide quietness and privacy in our tucked away self-catering cottages at the back for couples enjoying the views. We may even have one of our hangi pits in steaming away.

Plenty of activities

Enjoy activities in our games room or outdoors on the adventure playground in our spacious camp grounds.

The beauty of our holiday park is that from your quiet camp site, cabin, cottage or tourist flat, you can be kept busy with the host of things to see and do in the Te Aroha area.


Use us as a base for a trip to Hobbiton. Close to Matamata (only a 30 minute drive from our Park), visit the movie set used in The Lord of the Rings film trilogy.

Te Aroha Holiday Park was also the location of a 2016 Swiss movie.

Hauraki Rail Trail

The Hauraki Rail Trail is a great way to spend a day doing a section or 2-3 days to do the complete trail. It can be accessed from Thames, Paeroa, Waihi/Waikino, or Te Aroha. The trail incorporates the stunning Karangahake Gorge.

We found the new owners who had taken over this park in Dec are most obliging and can see that they are achieving improvements at a great rate. Great stay.


We had a lovely stay for one night in a cabin. Super friendly and helpful managing couple. Thank you so much, we will be back.


We stayed here for 3 amazing days. The facilities were clean tidy & comfortable. This would be amazing if you have younger kids, as there is a adventure park with a sway bridge flying fox & giant nets.

For the more chilled out visitors like myself the views of the mountains are Awesome. I would come back to this Beautiful park again in a heart beat. Thank you Te Aroha Camp Grounds, yous have done yourselves proud. 5 Star ServiceπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸ‘


Such a beautiful spot with views of the mountain, miniature horses surrounding! Recently under new management but can see they're really making the effort to turn it around from the last owner.

Super lovely manager. Very clean, tidy, quiet and calm. Stayed at campsite. Had free WiFi, basic kitchen, showers etc and power. Also had a variety of cabins etc available. But perfect for me as wanting a safe quiet spot for my campervan. Not too far from rail trail and cute te aroha town. also has a small mineral hot pool which is on every night!


The staff were super friendly and the accommodation was just as advertised. It worked well for what we needed, very clean and tidy. I would stay here again.
