Possibly is the oldest Holiday Park in New Zealand since 1901. Between Rotorua and Taupo, 40 mins to each side. Nature thermal water run through the park. Not modern style but with native trees and birds around. Family units and camping ground.

Golden Springs Motel & Holiday Park is located along the Thermal Highway midway between Taupo and Rotorua in the North Island. Well suited for families and international visitors in a park-like country setting. There is a short bush track and boardwalks that meander through the fern glade in the lower part of the Park, giving an exquisite setting to the natural hot thermal stream, pools (free), and swimming pool. We provide serviced motel accommodation and tourist flats (all with kitchens and bathrooms; basic cabins (shared facilities), and have 21 power campsites divided by mature Privit hedges and a variety of tent sites, all neatly mown and trimmed. Part of the thermal area is available for cyclists' camping. There is a camp kitchen with fridge and stove. A TV and internet kiosk room is available. All the facilities were established in the 60's, and are clean and attractive. Our licensed restaurant provides full meals on busy days (by prior arrangement). Laundry machines available. An exciting children's play area includes a flying fox. Two free gas BBQs available. Nearby is excellent trout fishing, boat ramp, several free thermal pools, superette and numerous popular tourist destinations. Pets are welcome (conditions apply).
