Welcome to Waitaki Waters Holiday Park, Oamaru

This summer we will have our new sand arena available for volleyball, football, horse riding and dog agility. The paddock will also have a cycle trail for those wanting to burn off some extra energy, so the whole paddock will now be the summer "rec" room! We have also been really busy cutting out a walking/horse riding trail alongside the Waitaki River. There you will find secret fishing and water holes safe for swimming plus glorious spots to sit and ponder............. stay up to date with what's happening at camp on our Facebook page!
