Camping & Accommodation

Family Holidays

We have been hosting families for over 55 years!

Our goal is to provide a spacious, safe, and action-packed holiday for families at an affordable rate in one of New Zealand’s most beautiful holiday spots.

There is 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 (January) and we are just ten minutes walk to the beautiful Kaiteriteri beach.

Due to an ever-increasing demand for the three weeks from Boxing Day, we are presently full with only a few nights here and there still available. We invite new inquiries, but if you can come before Christmas or any time after middle of January, we are more likely able to offer you a site. Or take advantage of our February Family Camping Special, which offers a tent site rate of just $36.00/night for up to six family members! And the weather is the best in February!

Travellers

Take a break from driving place to place!

Take a break from Freedom Camping or long days driving from place to place! We are welcoming more and more travellers who find coming to Bethany Park is the place to rest a while. Time to catch up on laundry, sleep, photo sorting… or just relax in our beautiful spacious surrounds whilst being only a ten-minute walk to the glorious Kaiteriteri beach or take a water taxi from the beach front for a day trip into the Abel Tasman National Park, returning to us in the evening.

Groups

School Camps and Groups

Looking for a unique location and venue for your a school camp, training course or conference, which is central to the many activities and places of interest the stunning Nelson region has to offer?

Camp One was created for the benefit of youth and the community in the Nelson region. 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 is a must. We would love to help as getting people gathered together is what Bethany Park is all about.
