Surrounded by forest and mountains, yet only 2.5 kms from the centre of Hanmer Springs Alpine Village, Hanmer Springs Forest Camp is a wonderful place to get away from it all. The Forest Camp is completely smoke free and has a designated smoking area near the front gate. We are a family park with quiet time 1Opm-8 am.
The Camp won the “Tourism and Hospitality Award 2016” in the North Canterbury Business Awards. The judges said: “An excellent example of what can be achieved by a camp committed to sustainably and the education of its users”
Also in 2016, the Camp won an International Environment Award, Green Apple Award, through The Green Organisation based in London for environmental best practise. In 2015 the camp won a Silver and Bronze Green Apple for environmental best practise.
The Camp has accommodation for up to 200 persons: 2 self-contained units with disabled access facilities; 44 family cabins and standard cabins; 5 bedroom self-contained lodge (32 beds) available for groups with disabled access facilities; 20 non-powered tent and campervan sites.
Camp amenities include:4 kitchen/dining/lounge areas all with cooking equipment and TV lounge, brand new toilet/shower facilities with underfloor heating, coin operated laundry, bedding hire, large playground and outdoor areas, barbecues, off-street coach, bus and car parking. Sorry NO pets.
