Hi, we're Nola and Todd Morgan

Hi, we're Nola and Todd Morgan

The Morgan family has run Ohiwa Beach Holiday Park since its inception in 1988/1989. In late 2000 my husband Todd and our children, Dean and Renae arrived at the park. With time and a lot of hard work, the park has been built up to have full facilities for camping and a selection of units.

We made a commitment to be responsible for this special piece of Ohiwa for future generations. We have been rewarded with several awards for sustainable business practices which are still in place today.

Camping NZ NEW

Welcome to New Zealand's most comprehensive database of freely available camping information. This is the only travel map of its kind in NZ.



Nestled on the eastern shores of the Ohiwa Harbour in a sparsely populated segment of the Bay of Plenty lies a hidden gem, the settlement of Ohiwa.

The best places are always worth getting to, and our location is no different. With the Pacific Ocean and Ohiwa Beach only steps from the campground – and the Ohiwa Harbour even closer – we are a unique location ready to be explored.

My sister and I stayed at the ohiwa holiday park for a total of four nights. It was so peaceful and relaxing. If your a bird lover you must experience ohiwa. Tuis, king fishers, rosellas, quail, wekas, and the calls of pheasants all add to the chorus during our visit. Only one thing I would have liked to see different is to have the a way of drying hands in the toilets but not a biggy. If your thinking of visiting then do it. Its wonderful.

We stayed one night in our caravan. We had a powered site. Our experience was very positive. This would be the cleanest and most friendliest camping ground we have visited. We hope to return. Thank you.

We stayed at Ohiwa holiday park again for the forth time since February. Again the experience was top drawer, to the cleanliness of the facilities, to the staff and management who again are so friendly and obliging. I can highly recommend this campsite to anyone and is pet friendly as well as fishing friendly down to a bait freezer.

We went here for a short getaway with the kids. I rate this place very high. When we arrived they were really hospitable and showed us to our place quickly. Their facilities are great and have so much to do for the kids. A short walk to the beach made it easier for the little ones. I definitely recommend and would return.

A first time stay at Ohiwa Beach Holiday Park.
Loved the quiet bush surrounded property.Clide to the ocean by a 2 minute walk through dunes.
Well kept camp, clean and tidy.
Great bush walk to view the most spectacular scenery across the Eastern Bay.

In our caravan with 2 grandkids under 5, we had a wonderful 2 night stay at the Ohiwa Holiday Park. Such friendly staff and spotlessly clean amenities. The camp playground was perfect for our little campers, access to a safe beach was easy and we were there with a school group of over 70 children and we would never have known. We will be back and will be telling others about this gem of a holiday destination.

Travelling in motor home with daughter and small dog found the park to be very well maintained and lots to do, a beautiful pool and lovely grounds so handy to the ocean beach. Lots of lovely walks, a very pleasant stay with super big parks. Will visit again.

Lovely campsite, clean, well-maintained facilities and situated right beside a stunning beach. The pool was a nice alternative when not in the mood for a trip thru the dunes. Internet connection was free and the speed impressive!!!

All three kids had a blast, making friends with others their age and hanging out late into the evenings.

We arrived on the Friday of a long weekend. The place was jam-packed and had a great atmosphere. The fridges were also jam-packed - which is the only negative I can rustle up... more fridge space would have been nice :-) Lots of families headed home after the weekend which solved our fridge problem, but sadly, left the kids without their new friends.... We still had Rummikub to occupy our evenings and had a great stay over the remaining days!!!

Glad we were able to find an available spot here and hope to return.
