Top Ten Holiday Parks New Zealand

If you are looking for an easy way to find camper parking spots all over New Zealand, be sure to have a look on

This is a network of 'Top Ten' (although there are more than ten!) holiday parks all over the country. The parks all offer some form of motel or cabin along with campsites and powered sites, and communal facilities such as kitchens, lounges and bathrooms. This makes them great for those who are travelling in a smaller or non-self contained camper- you can get out of the close confines of your vehicle and spread out for cooking, have a proper shower and meet some more travellers in the lounge. Holiday Parks are great for chatting with people, and if you are travelling with kids, they will often find friends in the playgrounds and pools.

Top Ten offers a quality guarantee- where a park is branded as a Top Ten park, it means good value for money, clean facilities and spacious settings. Many also have added extras- pools, spas, tennis courts and the like. All parks have a minimum 4-star qualmark rating.

If you are planning on a lot of traveling in New Zealand, consider joining the Top Ten Club. It costs $40 for a 2-year membership, and the benefits could recoup that cost very quickly. You will be entitled to 10% off any type of accommodation, up to $30 per night. You can also save 10% on interislander ferry travel, and get discounts at some local attractions and restaurants- just ask at the reception of your park. The membership extends to similiar benefits on Big4 Holiday Parks in Australia.

There are 52 Top Ten parks all over the country, meaning you are likely to find one for wherever you want to go. The website makes it easy to find a park by bringing so many places together on one site, and guaranteeing the quality with the Top Ten brand. Make sure you have a look if you're planning a kiwi road trip!

There are also a lot of excellent Holiday Parks throughout New Zealand that do not belong to Top Ten, and offer as good if not better accommodation. Many of the independent sites have excellent locations with great views etc. So dont restrict your holiday - check them all out and find the ones you like!

Absolutely- These are just an easy place to start if you are looking for parks, and are guaranteed to be of a good standard. But there are many independent holiday parks out there that are as good or better, so it can be worth the search!
