Lake Hawea Holiday Park is a jewel in the crown of Southern
Lakes camping and family holidays.
The park is modestly nestled within a wooded area on the
shores of Lake Hawea - a stunning deep-blue crystal-clear
glacial lake dramatically framed by rugged Southern Alps.
This little beauty is most definitely punching well above its
weight in the views department!
The iconic Kiwi-styled accommodation and ‘‘welcome back''
hospitality is the place to make memories and start
traditions. This special place is ideal for families, young
couples or groups of friends seeing in the New Year.
You'll be greeted and settled by the camp host Mike, who
incidentally will be on hand later to smoke the ‘‘one that
didn't get away''! Bring your own rod, or, easier still,
borrow one from the camp's selection. It also has mountain
bikes on site for hire and Mike will point you in the
direction of the new loop track or find a walk to suit your
pace. The boat ramp is close by, and the camp boasts its very
own sportsground if you fancy a hit of cricket - the perfect
way to summon up a thirst!
Morning chores are reduced to lathering on the sunscreen and
putting a ‘‘local Sauv'' on ice for later. No cooking is
necessary, as the camp shares the view with Sails Restaurant
and Lake Hawea Hotel, where you can stop by for a meal, grab
some fish and chips or meet up for a drink.
As the long days draw to an end, cool down with an ice cream,
take a dip in the new swimming hole or crack open one you've
prepared earlier. If you time it just right, you can collect
that freshly smoked salmon from Mike to eat with some warm
bread and a nicely chilled glass of the local drop.
Cheers to that!
