Dog Policy

If you can’t bear to leave your beloved pet with friends, family or even in kennels while you take off for that well deserved break, why not head to a pet-friendly Holiday park in the center of Rotorua where you and your pet can enjoy a brilliant break. However, to make all guest comfortable during their stay, we do have some rules here:

  • If you are going to bring any pets, you must inform our office in advance via email when you have made a booking and upon check-in. Without an agreement, in advanced, This could cause cancellation of your accommodation without any refund.
  • Dogs only permitted in your own accommodation facility – i.e. your caravan or tent. and there is a $5.00 per dog per day charge and a $20.00 bond
  • Dogs must not be taken into any buildings i.e. apartment, cabins, lodge, ablutions.
  • Dogs must be on a leash at all times within the camping grounds.
  • Please pick up your dog droppings immediately, otherwise extra cleaning fee may apply.
  • Dogs in our camp ground should be well socialized and tolerate other dogs and adults / children around.
  • Dogs must not be a nuisance to neighboring campers.

We love having your dogs here to stay so please follow the rules and if we can help in any way please ask. But we will not tolerate disobedient dog owners.

You will be asked to leave camp without any refund or even extra charges for the mess caused.


Caravans get warm when the weather’s hot, so don’t leave your pet inside for long periods during the summer. Similarly, don’t start a long walk at the hottest time of the day.

  • Keep your dog on a lead when you’re on the park at all times.
  • Explore wide and far – walking your dog is a great opportunity to see parts Rotorua that many people don’t get to see
  • Watch your dogs around thermal activities, Cosy Cottage is surrounded by Thermal hot pools and boiling mud pools
  • Take plenty of doggie towels and grooming brushes as your pooch will get covered in sand, tangled fur from Rotorua Lake water and smelly if it rains
