Address:150 Parkhurst Road, Parakai, New Zealand, Auckland, North Island
Aquatic Park Holiday Camp is in the thermal heart of the Helensville district, northwest of Auckland. Parakai is well known for its many warm mineral swimming pools and water slide. The camping ground is adjacent, but quite separate from the pools. It has a nice playground for children. Sites are level and open with big trees around the perimeter of the camp. Picnic tables and some hard stands for vans are provided. Over 100 sites here, most with power. A clean kitchen has microwave (there is no dining space), but plenty of preparation benches, a stove, hot plates and a fridge. The laundry facilities are excellent. The ablutions have a modest number of good hot showers and toilet facilities, however there is another block near the camp entrance. A good number of permanents are in residence, but there is plenty of space for casual campers. There is a dump station here. A superette, family tavern and takeaway are within a stones throw of the camp. Powered sites are $14 per person and unpowered $12 per person. Campers get a reduced fee to use the pools.
