Lower North Island's riverside haven for camper vans and caravans. Power sites are exclusive so booking is recommended.

Awastone hosts New Zealand's North Island quality camper van park, set along private river frontage, ensuring safe and secure accommodation with spectacular views. This quiet spot is surrounded by native birds and trees, yet only 1km from State Highway One. Ideally located halfway between Rotorua and Wellington, Awastone is a relaxing stopover on your journey through the lower North Island and with only 9 sites, it is highly recommended you book first.

Awastone resides along the national cycleway. Book the hot tub to soak your legs. The licensed cafe onsite is open daily in summer, serving up breakfast, lunch and dinner, so you don't have to cook. Book a river activity here too. Trips depart daily, from 1 hr to 4 days, enjoy the river.
