When hot water was found around 30 years ago, a huge concrete pool (18 x 6 m) was built and school children from all over the district came to use it as part of their annual school picnics and camping trip.
The pool area has since been extended and includes our special alfresco pool with hot mineral water, is open all year between 5:00pm and 8:00pm under an umbrella of pure New Zealand stars.
Open during the evening, this little pool is a popular way for guests to unwind and socialise. The, soft water feels wonderful to the skin and helps ease sore joints. There is a constant flow of water in this pool, to help you unwind even more. This pool is drained and cleaned every day, so we can guarantee you will always find it immaculate. Our spring contains Iron and Manganese, which causes a light brown coloration of the water. This pool is only open for a short time as we do not add any chemicals, 100% mineral water only, we drain it in the morning and refill it during the afternoon.
This pool seats up to 6 people.
Please Note: For safety reasons, the rock pool can not be operated during storm / heavy rain, as it is exposed to the open sky. The same applies to Hydro Jet Spa pool (below).
Unfortunately, our hydro spa is under going some maintenance. We hope to have it up and running for you to enjoy again soon!
During summer time, our 18 x 6 metre old concrete Swimming pool provides (almost unlimited) fun for young and old. The water stays in there until the weather gets cooler and is heated by the sun, reaching up to 28 °C. Please accept that our Bore water is not crystal clear and you might find some light colouration from the minerals that are being pumped up from the ground when we top up.
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 Service🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟👍
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.
