Come and escape to the beauty and adventure of Kaiteriteri in the beautiful Nelson region. Nestled at the head of the Kaiteriteri Inlet, just one kilometre from the famous Kaiteriteri Beach 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.


Summer is here at Bethany Park!

Winter is almost here! We are having beautiful sunny days, be it chilly in the mornings! We are welcoming back many returning NZMCA Winter overers, and new adventurers who are travelling New Zealand, but calling in here for a few months, or longer, to rest and enjoy all Tasman and Golden Bay has to offer, taking advantage of our NZMCA Winter over rate.

NZMCA members! Our Winter Over rate is from 1st March to 30th November, and if you stay at least 7 nights, we can offer you our rate of only $125.00/week for two adults on power and $105.00/week for solo NZMCA travellers. Call us or email to book a site for the winter. Or come for a few nights and pay our Winter SAVER rate of just $36.00/night for two adults on power.

We offer FREE WIFI and FREE showers to all our campers. Your pets are most welcome now until 15th December.

Camping and Accommodation

For over 58 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 25th January) and we are just ten minutes walk to the beautiful Kaiteriteri beach.


33 hectares of fun

Over the Park’s 33 hectares we have two playgrounds, paddock golf, badminton and volleyball court, 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 five 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 1966 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 One can sleep up to 74, with two venues to choose from and is open from February through to November. 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.

Our Group’s Camp, Camp One is closed to Groups from mid-December to end of January, as we open it up for summer camping for our Kiwi families.
