Amazing location next to beautiful lake. Very quiet spot. Perfect chalets have everything you need. Super clean and all round one of the best holiday camps we have stayed in. Would recommend Blue Lake Top 10 above many of the other Rotorua accommodation options. If staying a bit outside of town is not a concern, then this is the place...

We went to this camping ground with a group of friends. While they stayed in the self-contained units my wife and I took our caravan. We enjoyed the camp ground experience, the kitchen and bathrooms were always clean and tidy. In the kitchen tea towels, wash cloths and dishwasher liquid was supplied, a nice surprise. The self-contained units were also...

I stayed here with my 4 year old in one of the cabins. The location is just beautiful - it's one of the nicest holiday parks I've stayed in. The grounds are beautiful, the amenities are clean and tidy and the cabin was very well equipped. It made a great base for exploring Rotorua or for just kicking around if...

We were a group of 5 travelling and we stayed in a two bedroom cabin at the Top 10 Blue Lake Holiday Park. The 2 couples had the bedrooms and the single had the sofa bed in the living area. The cabin was clean, comfortable and overlooked the lake. We were there at the start of winter but would suggest...

Very nice big 2 bedroom room with proper kitchen and spacious. Felt new and good quality. Even with electric blanket on the bed! Cosy. Safe for children. A lot of different options for accommodation. Well managed. Lovely people. Beautiful lake to walk around on the track starting at right hand end of beach.

We chose this park rather than one in Rotorua itself, knowing that it would be more peaceful. We had not banked on being there for the annual junior Waka Ama (canoeing) competitions - but what a treat for us. The facilities in the holiday park itself are very good, and although we had very heavy rain our campsite was perfect...

My family and I stayed in one of the private cabins for a couple of nights late November. The cabin was comfortable and meet all our requirements. During our stay there were two big school groups camping at the back of the grounds. But you wouldn't have known they were there. All staff we had contact with were very helpful...

A very peaceful location about 10 minutes or so drive from Rotorua. Toilets, Showers kitchen etc all clean. Nothing like pans, crockery, plates provided, so needed to be bought from our campervan. Our powered site offered a little bit of privacy as there were hedges between each site. Our pitch (and most others) was grass

Kia Ora Neil, thanks for taking the time to give us such a great review! We have kitchen equipment available on request at Reception for all our guests. Some of our powered sites are grass but we also have quite a few powered sites available for campervans/motorhomes that have gravel on them for a bit more stability. We're glad you...

We stayed one night in a two bedroom unit, which was clean and well presented. The hillside setting is very pleasant, and the lake is just across the road. Wifi is available at modest cost. We'd be happy to stay here again.
