Lake Ferry Holiday Park

campers Lake Ferry Holiday Park and Motor Camp is a traditional Kiwi Camping Ground nestled in Palliser Bay, on the shore of Lake Onoke in South Wairarapa. We enjoy the most amazing sunsets you will ever see; there are few nicer coastal spots in New Zealand for that weekend getaway.

This popular, unique lake and sea location just an hour from Wellington offers fishing, white baiting, wind surfing, kayaking and other water activities. There is swimming in certain areas, lazing or exploring on the beach, and marvellous coastal walks.

Superb views combined with sea air and a host of local activities make this your perfect choice for that promised getaway break. Facilities include cabins, tourist flats with room service and breakfast available, integrated campsite with tent and powered sites, dairy, kitchen facilities, TV, hot showers ($1 coin), and laundry.

Recognised as the birthplace of the Wairarapa, Lake Ferry has hosted travellers from earliest times. It was here that Pastoral Farmers drove their stock to establish the first sheep farm in New Zealand. Today, although so close to our Capital City, the environment is still remote and unspoiled with a rugged beauty which is appealing - be it in a wild southerly storm or on a breathlessly sunny day.

It is a short excursion with stunning coastal views to the famous Putangirua Pinnacles reserve in Aorangi Forest Park. Other local attractions include diving, canoeing, hunting, surfing, seal colony, lighthouse views, tramping, wine trails, glow worm caves, ravine walks, quad biking, fishing charters, horse-riding and farm visits. We'll gladly help you plan group activities and make bookings.

The Holiday Park is just a short stroll from the historic Lake Ferry Hotel, which is the Southernmost hotel in the North Island. Well known for its delicious meals and country hospitality it has hosted many famous visitors, including the "Lord of the Rings" film crew. Wine and dine in unsurpassed scenic beauty from a menu that specialises in fresh seafood and the best of Martinborough wines.
