It's close enough to Hamilton to be convenient to everything the Waikato offers, in a rural setting on 27 acres along the Waikato River. It's a great place to explore the region but also has everything a camp needs onsite! Check out our feedback below to see why everyone else keeps coming to Narrows.

Taylor // camper on a school trip
Thank you so much for our stay. We had a great time and enjoyed every moment. We were really impressed with the standard of meals provided which was a highlight for many of us adults.
Ngutunui // school camp
This was a new experience for the crew from Zealous, we talked the camp up a bit saying it would be chill and we’d feel at home, and that the food would be awesome. I don’t think we talked you guys up enough cos they were all blown away! The hosts were fantastic, the food was, well the usual brilliant deliciousness that you excel in... with the Narrows generous heart coming through. The Zealous crew are talking about making that comp an annual thing now and bringing down heaps more people... and they can’t stop raving about you all. So thank you family, we already knew that you guys rock - but it’s really nice to bring friends and family down to share in that experience.

When we're not running events or hosting groups we welcome travellers to the Waikato to camp at Narrows.
Simple accommodation offering a cozy bunk room with a beauty of a heater for winter, windows for summer and linen for hire. It takes you back to those great days of being a kid and having a sleepover with all your mates.
Plenty of space for the whole range of powered campers, buses and vans with around twenty six sites available. A great place to take in a bit of countryside not far off the beaten track of state highway 1.
Enjoy acres of tenting space high on the banks of New Zealand's longest river. Wake up to the birds and the sounds of the river.
