** Labour Weekend 2024 – updated 08/05/24 – we are allowing pets on selected/limited sites this 2024 period – bookings must be made directly with the office. Limited to 1 dog per site and if sites are booked out, no more dogs are allowed in the park. Dogs must be on a lead in the park at all times and are not permitted in communal areas and swimming pool areas.

– Peak Period – 18 December to 15th January + Long Weekends Auckland Anniversary / Waitangi / Easter / Labour Weekends** (See above).
Sorry during this period – we are at full capacity with humans, trials in the past have had some owners breach our requirements and upset other guests (we do have plans in future to make some more pet friendly options all year round!).

More Dog Information

Our bay (Kikowhakarere) has no current dog restrictions for dogs on it – this means your dog can be on the beach at any time on or off-lead.

However, across Coromandel restrictions do apply on where you have your pets at certain times – some beaches don’t allow pets on beach during day time hours. Please familarise yourself with Thames Coromandel District dog rules here.

Here’s a quick list of what we recommend to bring with you camping:-

  1. Bring something to keep your pet cool and cover like a cheap gazebo or tent – usually, you will be camping in summer – so the heat is high, and the sun is strong.
  2. Keep the pets hydrated with a decent water bowl to keep them warm during your stay.
  3. Ensure you pack your companion’s collar & lead – they might be used to free-ranging at home, in the park your pet must be on a lead.
  4. Poop bags – be a tidy Kiwi and respect other guests by tidying up their mess!
  5. Dog registration tag is up to date – during peak times, our local council do enforce dog rules, ensure your registration is on the pet and up to date to save nasty fines!
  6. Consider pet sunscreen – slip, slop, slap.
  7. Don’t forget the treats for your pets – lets be honest, they are on holiday too!

Each TOP 10 is independently owned and operated, some lease lands from councils that specifically don’t allow pets so each park is unique by their rules.
