What Makes Lakes Edge Holiday Park Ideal for Your Lake Tekapo Stay?

No trip to the South Island is complete without a visit to Lake Tekapo. And, while it’s possible to do a day trip from any of the main centres, like Christchurch or Queenstown, it’s impossible to truly enjoy everything the area has to offer in a single day.
From stargazing at the world’s largest Dark Sky Reserve to setting off on one of the region’s scenic walks, there’s no better way to get back to nature and experience the real, rustic New Zealand than with an extended stay in Mackenzie Country. And when it comes to Lake Tekapo accommodation, you won’t find better than Lakes Edge Holiday Park. Of course, we would say that, wouldn’t we? But don’t just take our word for it, here are some of the top reasons visitors choose Lakes Edge over motels in Tekapo.

Our prime location on the lakefront

It doesn’t get much more spectacular than this. Wake up and remind yourself what it’s all about, with vistas that will leave an imprint on you for many years to come. With stunning panoramic views across the turquoise lake and surrounding mountains, Lakes Edge Holiday Park is perfectly positioned for soaking up the scenery.

As far as Lake Tekapo accommodation goes, it’s also in a great spot for exploring the local attractions. Just 10 minutes walk and you’ll be at Tekapo Springs, and 25 minutes in the other direction will get you to the Church of the Good Shepherd. So, whether you’re looking for rest and relaxation, or action and adventure, you’ll have it all on your doorstep.

Accommodation options to suit you

Unlike many of the motels in Tekapo, at Lakes Edge you’ll have a wide range of accommodation styles to suit your party size, preferences and budget. Our hostel, Lakes Edge Lodge, is a great choice for backpackers or budget travellers. It can comfortably sleep 76 people in dorm rooms, and also has a variety of stand-alone private accommodation, including ensuite units.

Meanwhile, Lakes Edge Holiday Park covers all bases, from powered and non-powered campsites, to cabins, motel rooms and our popular Kiwi Baches. With all the creature comforts of home, these three bedroom Lake Tekapo baches have full cooking facilities, private bathroom and an open-plan living space with views over the lake.

Great amenities and modern facilities

Lakes Edge Holiday Park is well equipped with all the modern conveniences you’d expect from a quality park. Whether you're in a tent, campervan, motorhome, or enjoying one of our Tekapo motel units or other accommodation options, you’ll find everything you need to complement your stay. Our multiple kitchens and BBQ areas provide the perfect space to enjoy a meal with family or friends, while the TV lounge has SKY TV to ensure you don’t miss the big game. And at the end of the day, you can rest safe and sound knowing that our site is secured by locked gates and 24 hour security.

Our welcoming, family-friendly environment

We may have all the bases covered for our grown-up guests, but don’t think we’ve forgotten the kids! Our park has been designed with families in mind, so fun and safety go hand in hand. Our onsite playgrounds cater to children of all ages - little ones will love the smaller playground, while older kids can explore the larger lakefront playground, complete with a big climbing elephant and a tractor.

For families travelling with pets, we also offer designated dog-friendly campsites. Your furry friends are welcome to join you on your holiday, but be sure to book in advance as spaces are limited. However, please note that for the comfort of all guests, pets are not allowed in the accommodation units or in the campsite during our peak season of December 15 to January 15.
