Activities

River
Groups who have access to boats can bring them and launch them from our waterfront straight onto the Mighty Waikato River / upper catchment of Lake Karapiro. Epworth is situated in a 5 knot reserve zone making it ideal for group's to participate in water activities knowing they are safe and well away from the skiing and other recreational zones further down the river. If you do want to spend time water skiing there are nearby bays minutes away or cruise up at night to the nearby Pokaiwhenua stream to experience our local glow-worms.

Flying Fox

Feel the adrenaline when you soar through the air on our 200m x 5m high flying fox. Situated on our top terrace and finishing down on our middle terrace you will be harnessed in at the top and safe to fall from our wooden platform where you will be able to access the dismount trolley. This activity is not available to pre-schoolers and there is a weight restriction. Pre-booking is essential.

Pool
Cool down in our salt chlorinated pool suitable for all ages with a shallow end of 1m and a deep end of 1.3m. The pool measures 15m x 9m so is suitable for large groups with a maximum of 40 people. Please note that adult supervision is required at all times for children less than 16 years of age. There is no charge for use of the pool while staying on site.

 hayleuy Kayaking
Being right on the Karapiro Lake edge means that we have ample and easy access for any water sport activities. Kayaking is a fun activity that can be adapted to suit the needs and abilities of your group whilst also allowing you to see areas of the Lake that you may otherwise miss out on. This is a high risk activity so will require an instructor to run this for your group or you can provide your own experienced or qualified instructor and just hire our kayaks. There are 14 kayaks available with BA’s provided. From an hours’ worth of beach side games to a three hour adventure – we can cater to your needs. Pre-booking is essential.

Water Slide
What a thrill.  Our water slide is great fun.

 

Please note our waterslide is currently not in use due to upgrading.
