Travelling on a Budget

Taupo is a hot spot for tourists coming to New Zealand because of its variety of adventure activities and superb scenery. Many people look to stay in hotels or motels whilst here, however if you are a budget conscious traveller, holiday park / camp site accommodation options are a great way to save money whilst still getting quality accommodation in this great town.

Taupo holiday parks allow you to experience not only camping holidays but self contained accommodation too with a range of 1 to 3 bedroom units or cabins; much like motel accommodation options. Because of the size of the camp sites you get beautiful settings to stay in such as park like grounds surrounded by farmlands, offering the peace and tranquility which many travellers seek. Of course another important thing which travellers in Taupo seek is the all important view of Lake Taupo itself – something which you can still get with a stay at a Taupo holiday park.

It sounds like Taupo holiday parks are miles away from the town centre but in fact many are just a short distance from Taupo town centre so a short walk or quick drive is all it takes to get there.

Whilst there is so much to do in Taupo itself, camp sites also provide plenty of facilities to keep everyone entertained during those times when you aren’t out and about. If you think about it when you stay in a hotel or motel you are usually limited to the confines of your room/suite, patio or the on-site restaurant which is usually fine if you are travelling as a couple or by yourself but what about if you are with a group or your family? Are those who are more active and easily get bored going to be OK sitting in their room watching a DVD or reading a book? Chances are they aren’t. Searching around the Taupo holiday parks on offer you will find that many offer playgrounds, trampolines, communal games rooms (with pool tables etc), sporting equipment, pool/spa and in general plenty of room to run around!

So whether your holiday to Taupo means jumping out of a plane at 15,000ft over Lake Taupo or enjoying the variety of sightseeing opportunities such as the Huka Falls and the Wairakei Terraces, consider saving some of your money and enjoy accommodation that offers so much more than just a place to rest your head. Stay at a Taupo holiday park during your next holiday.
