MOTOR HOME AND CAMPER PARKING

Unfortunately current Taupo District Council by-laws prevents Wairakei Resort guests from parking up at the Resort and sleeping in their RV’s. While the Resort has made application for this to be able to happen, discussions are still on going. Should the by-law change before the Reunion, we will let you know.  For Motorhome and Camper Parks close by click HERE.
