Rotorua is one of the most popular travel destinations in North Island. It’s certainly our favourite spot to visit. The best part in Rotorua is camping at the holiday park aside Blue Lake. You have the Blue Lake (Tikitapu) at your doorstep which has clear blue waters and is great for swimming, water skiing and boating.
Around the lake, there is a 5km easy walking track that takes you into beautiful beaches, native bush and the Whakarewarewa Redwood Forest – perfect activity along the sunrise or sunset. The coffee trailer at the lake side is amazing! Besides great coffee, you will find one of the best burgers in New Zealand! Face-sized, with crumbed mushroom, juicy beef steak and thick-melted cheese, it’s just something you cannot miss, if you’re a burger person! You can also get to other beautiful lakes within 5 min drive from the Blue Lake, such as Lake Tarawera, Lake Okataina, Lake Rotoiti etc. Kayak, ski, sail, fishing are all within your options. What’s more, you will find lots of great tracks to hit and horse tracks over the hills with great views.
