Waikaremoana Holiday Park


DOC is reducing services at the Waikaremoana Holiday Park over the winter.

Date:  26 June 2024

DOC Operations Director Eastern North Island Jade King-Hazel says a reduction in services would support the completion of essential facility repairs and allow for a re-set in the park due to staffing changes.

“It will also allow staff to take much needed breaks.”

The holiday park has a variety of accommodation options, including self-contained chalets and units along with small cabins and camping options, with shared bathroom and kitchen facilities.

From now until September 30 only the self-contained options will be available to visitors. The remaining holiday park accommodation options will be closed for this period.

The shop and fuelling service will remain open with normal business hours of 8.30 am-4 pm weekdays and 9 am-4 pm weekends and public holidays.

“DOC continues to work closely with Te Uru Taumatua to discuss the current/future shape and nature of the holiday park, and how it contributes to the manuhiri/visitor experience within Te Urewera.”

“This focus supports and aligns with the opportunity to enhance the authenticity of experience within Te Urewera moving forward for all,” said Jade King-Hazel.
