Welcome to Pahiatua Carnival Park

Camping in Pahiatua

Carnival Park is one of Pahiatua's best kept secrets. But we don't want to be.

We are in a tranquil bush setting with bird's, berry's and bush.

We are shaded in the summer when you want to laze around but plenty of room for cricket, children and dogs (pick up after them please ).

Free WiFi is available for all our guests.

Lounge, kitchen, good amenities, dump station, lots of room for caravans and tents or whatever you want to relax in and however you want to do it.

Just be ready for heaps of peace and quiet, that's our best feature.

Close to the river if you want to explore. Close to the town if you want to walk the 10 minutes it takes to find a good coffee or more.

A cruisy holiday experience

We want your stay to be as relaxing as possible. Our office is open most times during the day, with a self-service option available when the office is unstaffed and Eft-pos is available. The gates are locked at about dusk but if you are arriving later let us know so we can open for you (063766340 or 0210554001).

The river is a 7 to 8-minute walk from the park and has a good swimming hole. While the town pools are nearby if you prefer pool swimming.

There are grass-area powered sites set among large shady trees for those who prefer a more natural setting during their stay.

The children's playground is simple, but being inside the park grounds provides a safe environment where parents can relax and let the children go.

About us

Richard and Suzanne love the quiet and cruisy pace of Carnival Park and look forward to their guests being able to enjoy the peace and quiet they will find here.

Guests are encouraged to make themselves at home and enjoy the park's easygoing 'do-whatever-you-like', 'park-wherever-you-want' atmosphere. Carnival Park only asks that guests respect the other campers they are sharing the park with and allow them the same privilege. The more guests enjoy the peaceful environment and clean facilities, the better the staff at Carnival Park feel too.

Carnival Park offers self-service access for guests arriving outside normal office hours.

About Pahiatua and the Region

Driving into Pahiatua you will be greeted by large tree-lined gardens, which split the road into north and southbound lanes. These beautiful town gardens occupy land originally set aside for the proposed railway.

It was envisaged that the steam locomotive's progress through the middle of town would raise land prices, attract more people and in doing so, further the prosperity of the new settlement. Such plans and designs were not the work of a Borough Council or urban planning authority, but six private citizens who in 1881 owned all the land that is now Pahiatua.

At the northern end of Pahiatua is the unique sight of the World War II Harvard Plane. This plane has been converted into a children's slide and is one of the many activities in the children's playground.

The rivers around Pahiatua are renowned for having some of the best brown trout in New Zealand. If hunting is more your style, look no further - wild deer and pigs are lurking around, and the many bush walks are a trampers delight.

Approximately 2km south of Pahiatua on SH2 is the Polish Memorial, which marks the site of the Polish Children's Camp established in 1944. Originally the site of the Pahiatua Racecourse, the site became home to 733 refugee children from Poland until the camp closed in 1952. When the sun is shining on the monument, it casts a shadow that represents a Mother and Child.

Pahiatua is a popular traveller's stop. Picnic in the Main Street gardens or try out one of the cafés or restaurants. Browse the shops and experience our friendly country service.
