Department of Conservation Whakapapa Holiday Park DOC Campsite New Zealand

Whakapapa Holiday Park DOC Campsite

Department of Conservation Whakapapa Holiday Park DOC Campsite in the Tongariro National Park in Whakapapa Village, Ruapehu, New Zealand.

Department of Conservation campsites are popular with Kiwis and can be crowded in peak seasons. Some require booking but most are first-come-first-served, which means get there early or have alternatives ready. Probably the cheapest accommodation to be found, they are perfect for campervans or those traveling on a budget with a car and tent. Prices and details can change, use the links below for the latest information and any current alerts in the area.
