50-58 Lee Road, Hannahs Bay, Rotorua., Central Plateau, North Island

DESCRIPTION:

The recent makeover means fresh paint and new facilities welcome campers, along with the 18 dinosaurs of course. Educational as well as a fun feature, the dinosaurs each have a sign that gives details of their eating habits amongst other information. Just a hop, skip and a jump to the Hannah Bay lake front reserve of Lake Rotorua, the local shops, and the airport, family entertainment is what this place is all about. Facilities include an excellent toilet and shower area, as well as a sparkling kitchen area. Mature trees are scattered throughout this spacious camp, 75 powered sites have hedged borders and a large, open grass area with 25 tent sites. If the children get bored with the amazing playground, and onsite bouncy castle, there is always the recreation room which includes Sky TV and a dining room with wireless hotspot and internet kiosks. There are also kayaks and bikes for hire, tree huts and an under 10 year old children\'s room. Of course the first port of call will probably be the large indoor heated swimming pool with a retractable roof, or the toddler pool and a spa for the grownups. A laundry and dump point are provided.

DESCRIPTION:

Midway between Rotorua and Taupo, on the busy SH 5, is this once proud
camping ground. Unfortunately, it was looking a bit run down when we visited,
it is to be hoped that the new owners do a bit of garden maintenance to get it
back up to scratch. But if you don't want manicured lawns, this is an excellent
base for the great trout fishing nearby. There are 21 power sites divided by
boxed hedges, and a variety of tent sites - some down by the stream that
runs beside the camp. Bush tracks with boardwalks meander through the
lower part of the camp giving an nice setting to the natural thermal hot pools
provided free for people staying. There is a small kitchen with fridge and ovens,
and a TV room is available. The licensed restaurant is not open currently, but
hoping to be back up and running soon. Laundry machines are available as is
a free gas BBQ. All sites are $20 per adult per night, $12 per child and under
five are free.
