Council offers six affordable, kiwi-style camping grounds in the beautiful Waitaki Lakes area. The sunny and sheltered camping grounds provide easy access to the lakes, rivers, local townships (Kurow, Otematata, Omarama and Twizel), a golf course, playgrounds, and walking and cycling tracks.
- Site fees apply to any vehicle, caravan, or tent stationed on the camping ground, irrespective of occupancy.
- Season tickets apply to the family units named on the ticket butt only, which shall comprise of no more than two adults and children under 15 years of age. Extra adults need to complete a separate registration form.
- Please note that camping at any of these sites without paying the required fee is considered to be trespassing.
