Are you ready for another great social event at the best park over for the beach hop in March 2025.

The NZ Motorhome Travel Group (NZMTG) started this park over for the beach hop due to how many of their members had great looking custom cars and put in place a number of deluxe camp sites for those who need that extra room to park up their custom cars beside their units.

There will be social marquees set up on site at the park over for you to enjoy with other social campers staying on site.
This parkover is only a short walk to all the action happening just down the road.

126b Mayfair Avenue Reserve, Whangamata
Look for the bus stop shelter located in front of the community gardens and the main gate into the reserve.



We have larger sites for those who own a motorhome or caravan and have a custom car that would like to have it parked beside them for this event. So If you are bringing an extra trailer or hot rod / custom car and require extra room then you are more than welcome to book in our new deluxe sites.
