Dickson Holiday Park

Thames Caravan Parks & Camping


Check In: 15:00|Check Out: 10:00

Tranquil setting close to sea, surrounded by native bush and bird songs

Dickson Park is set beside a stream, surrounded by native bush and the old Tararu gardens, planted late last century by the settlers looking to beautify this thriving gold town. It is also the site of the remains of the Brown and Campbell gold processing stamper battery. The Gold is mostly gone, or best left in the ground to preserve the scenic wealth of this beautiful area, but the history remains and is a part of life on the Coromandel Peninsula.

A beautiful park on the outskirts of Thames. Surrounded by bush and stream with bushwalking from the gate but only 50m from the sea and a kilometre to the nearest boat ramp. Accommodation and camp sites available all year. Swimming pool for the summer months and play facilities for the kids. A park specialising in relaxation!
