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.


Welcome to spring at Bethany Park!

Spring has arrived! The skies are sunny here at Kaiteriteri! You are most welcome to come for a night or a week, we have plenty of sites and cosy new tourist cabins.

A big welcome back to our international travellers, we would love to have you stay with us. Just $46.00/night for two on a non powered site, a great deal for this special part of New Zealand! We are open until 5pm every day – rock on up!

Bethany WinterSaver… Our special offer to NZMCA members is still available, through to 30th November. If you are wanting to stay just one or two nights, you only pay $34.00/night for two on power, and only $18.00 if you are travelling solo.

This Summer is looking like another record breaker. We are fully booked from 26th December through to around 20th January, 2024. However, we do have some gaps here and there throughout that time,  for 2-3 nights, so if you are local and think a short break over summer would be good, drop us an email using our Contact page.

We offer FREE WIFI and FREE showers to all our campers. Pets are welcome on sites until 15th December.

Office Hours

Office hours: 9am-5.30pm Monday – Sunday.

Please no arrivals after 8pm. Thank you.


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 26th 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.
