Canopy Camping Escapes - Te Rata

With the access to this stunning lake-edge glamping site by boat or 4-hour hike only - Te Rata is one of the most off-the-beaten-path campsites in our collection.


Per night


Set on Department of Conservation (DOC) land, on the edge of Lake Tarawera, Te Rata is a very special place. It's right in the very heart of the thermal Rotorua district. Steam rises sleepily from the lake edge - the result of a hot thermal spring trickling into the water. The sand on part of Hot Water Beach heats up to 86 degrees - hot enough to cook a meal 'hangi-style' beneath the surface.

Te Rata campsite itself is set next to a DOC campground, but is separated from the neighbouring campsite by a small hill, natural rocks and bush - creating a private space. It consists of one large tent with a queen-sized bed. A camp kitchen, dining area and camp bathroom are set a short distance from the tent.
