Karamea Holiday Park
Karamea is a peaceful paradise situated at the northern end of the South Island of New Zealand's West Coast. Its "road end" situation gives it a special "off the beaten track" feeling. With a mild climate, lush native bush and a beautiful coastline Karamea has a touch of magic to enchant those who visit. Karamea is a gateway to the Kahurangi National Park with the fabulous limestone arches and Honeycomb caves of the Oparara Basin and the beautiful Heaphy Track nearby. Leave the rest of the world behind and come to this out of the world way place where the locals still wave to motorists and have time for a friendly chat. Owners John and Margaret are born and bred Kiwis and have enjoyed the camp since 1992. You will be greeted by Dudley, our enthusiastic Cocker Spaniel dog.

Karamea Information & Resource Centre
Karamea has a relaxed ‘off the beaten track’ feel. The area is a natural wonderland, with the beginning or end of the famous Heaphy, Wangapeka & Karamea-Leslie Tracks and the Oparara Basin with the Honeycomb Hill Caves & Limestone Arches in the Kahurangi National Park. Karamea is a secluded haven, situated between the mountains and the sea, on the river flats of the Karamea River and the coastal plains. Snuggled into the warm northwest corner of the South Island, it caters for the tramper and caver, birdwatcher and botanist, geologist and mountain biker, hunter and fisherman, the more adventurous kayaker and rafter... or simply those seeking a family holiday ‘away from it all.’
