Ashley-Rakahuri Gorge Holiday Park

Find us less than an hour’s drive from Christchurch in North Canterbury, nestled against Mount Thomas Forest. Surrounded by native bush the campground is adjacent to the clean & clear Ashley Gorge River which provides great swimming for the young or old.


Discover this hidden gem just off the beautiful Inland Scenic Route 72. Just 45 minutes from Christchurch this also makes it a perfect choice for your first or last night in our beautiful country.

Your Kiwi experience begins the moment you enter, with a welcome call from the abundance of native birds including the Tui, Fantail, Wood Pigeon or the Morepork Owls calling from the hillside. Once settled into your cosy cabin or your campsite, take the time to stroll the acres upon acres of native bush & woodland walking tracks, keeping a look out for the Giants walk and the Gorge lookout. The river running alongside the campground is a welcomed relief on a hot day. Clean & clear it offers fun for all ages. The campground offers large grassy sites with plenty of native trees. Being nestled against the foothills of Mt Thomas it enjoys it own unique microclimate. Camp shop, Wifi, playground, small ropes course, group accommodation, cabins, camping Pod and laundry, free BBQ’s & tree swings. You will find something for everyone from the young to the young at heart.
