Escape to the beauty and adventure of Kaiteriteri in the beautiful Nelson region.
Nestled at the head of the Kaiteriteri inlet, near the gateway to the Abel Tasman National Park and neighbouring the Kaiteriteri Mountain Bike Park. Bethany Park is both a Camp and Holiday Park – the perfect holiday spot for families, groups and travellers.

Please note… we now have sites available for a night here and there until the 23rd January, when longer stays are possible. Pets are welcome AFTER Waitangi Weekend. And, our NZMCA rates begin from 11th February… you are very welcome NZMCA members!

Office Hours

Office open daily, 8am-8pm.


Camping and Accommodation

For over 55 years we have been providing spacious, safe, and action-packed holidays at an affordable rate in one of New Zealand’s most beautiful holiday locations. With space for children to bike, plenty of adventure play areas, bush and glow worm walks… the list goes on, of course there is our 60 metre water slide (open mid-December to late January) and we are just ten minutes walk to the beautiful Kaiteriteri beach.

We are at capacity from Boxing Day to 20th January on all our sites and accommodation. If you can, come later in January or before Christmas… or better still… 

Take advantage of our February Family Special – Non powered Tent sites for just $36.00/night for up to six family members!


33 hectares of fun

Over the Park’s 33 hectares we have two playgrounds, paddock golf, a children’s BMX track, the 60 metre water slide and of course wide open spaces for families to explore, ride bikes, bush walk or just play volleyball, cricket and petanque on The Green… a place for families to have fun and be safe. There are four separate toilet and shower blocks, two laundries, three dump stations and two large indoor/outdoor kitchen and BBQ areas.

What people say about us...

School Camps

Everything you want in school camp

In 1996 the Strawbridge family donated the original piece of land, now ‘creatively’ known as Camp One for the benefit of youth and the community in the Nelson region. We have been welcoming schools and youth groups ever since. We have bunkhouse accommodation and teacher cottages, with catering and non-catering options available.


Conference and Training Venues

Looking for a unique location and venue for your training course or conference, which is central to the many activities and places of interest the stunning Nelson region has to offer? Our Camp can sleep up to 74, with two venues to choose from. We have the Kaiteriteri Mountain Bike Park on our doorstep, literally, and walking or kayaking in the Abel Tasman Park. We would love to help as getting people gathered together is what Bethany Park is all about.
