AN UNFORGETTABLE DRIVE...
Turn right at the end of our camp driveway and you will immediately find yourself weaving through North Otago's most spectacular scenery. Take your time and enjoy the ascent to majestic Dansey's Pass, then descend into the quaint, rustic town of Naseby, home of international curling competitions.
PEACE AT LAST... Looking for an oasis? For over half a century, folks have retreated to Dansey's Pass Holiday Park to escape the bustle and the noise. Relax. Listen to the peaceful song of the Bell Birds. Park yourself on a nearby hill where it's just you, the wind, and a breathtaking vista. Or just rest at the park and enjoy the river as it tumbles through the slate-limestone boulders and settles in the quiet, inviting swimming pools.
