Facilities for the use of all guests staying at Dickson Park

There is a fairly thorough description of every thing I can think of here. You can scroll on down through the lot, or take the shortcuts to a specific subject

There is public card phone in the camp.

Fish cleaning facility.

New cleaning area, SS bench, filleting board, fully screened to keep the sun and flys out!

You just have to catch the fish...and round here that is pretty easy!






Kitchen and Dining Area
A fully equipped kitchen and dining area also incorporates a comfortable outside deck with views over the stream and valley. As is standard in New Zealand camps FULLY equipped means you only have to bring the food. You will find stoves, microwaves, plates, bowls, glasses and cutlery. To keep your food fresh we have a community fridge and freezer. Use of all of these facilities is free to all guests

Pioneer Kitchen
Dickson Park is in an old gold mining area. Our earliest pioneers made their homes in canvas tents (in 1870 the population of Thames was greater than Auckland). As the community established the famous miners shanties evolved. Usually little more than a simple corrugated iron shed with a wood burning stove for cooking and heat, our Pioneer Kitchen recreates some of these features like the  simple construction. We have added a barbeque and a wok with gas burner. A cordial atmosphere makes this one of the most popular social areas in the camp.

There are several barbeques (gas) around the camp.  And plenty of places to set up your own!

Coin operated washers and dryer are available for use of all guests and clotheslines are provided. There are tubs available for hand washing.

Clean showers and toilets are provided for men and women. In Dickson Park it is never far to the showers and toilets but people with special needs can usually be accommodated nearer if required. But there are no disabled friendly facilities...sorry.

Recreation/Games Room
Table tennis (ping pong), television, table football, or just a place to get together and relax. This is open to all guests from early morning till 9pm.

 TV and Reading Lounge
A quiet adults only room for those who want to watch some television, read a book or maybe write a long letter home!

Swimming Pool
Solar heating helps to boost the temperature of this very popular attraction extending the swimming months from October through May. The big pool is large enough for serious swimming or not so serious games. The smaller, shallow pool is perfect for smaller children. Or for a change kids over the years have dammed up pools in the stream that runs through the camp and people spend hours relaxing in them. For the more adventurous a beautiful hike up the valley from the camp will get you to the 'Black Hole'. This three metre waterfall with a deep clear pool is a summertime favourite for locals and visitors alike.


Childrens Play Area
We are a favourite destination for people with young families. Hidden in our quiet valley traffic is not a problem and the bush surrounds and our assorted pet animals make the whole camp an adventure playground. But we do have a dedicated area for children to play. From the swings your kids are easily amused and have a great place for meeting other kids in the camp. Everything is so centrally located that it's easy for Mum and Dad to keep an eye on their family.

Games Area

In addition to the childrens area and the recreation room and swimming pool, we try to provide amusement for guests of all ages. You will find the following games and facilities around the camp.


Mini Golf
Nine holes to improve or destroy your putting technique.

Half Court Tennis
Racquets available from the office.

Petanque (Boules)
We have a small set and great places to play.

We have the equipment...you may have to put the net up, but there's plenty of room.

Swing Ball
This is a great game to turn the best of friends into fiery competitors.

Indoor Games
For those occasions try Trivial Pursuit, Chess, Yahtzee etc.

Dump Station / Fresh Water
We have an approved Sewer Dump Station (For use of paying guests) for emptying tanks from self contained campers. Excellent drinking water is provided for Camper Vans from our 'barrel' outside the office.
