Lake Okareka is situated 13km from the Rotorua CBD.  It is one of the smaller lakes in the area but is well used for waterskiing, wakeboarding and fishing.  Lake Okareka is also one of the only lakes in Rotorua that you can fish on all year round (with fishing license).  It is a spectacular part of Rotorua and so close to town, come and see for yourself.

"About a 15 min drive from "main" Rotorua so you will need a car. However it's worth it as the views are phenomenal, it's very tranquil. If you're into stargazing or astrophotography, you can do it right off the balcony - the skies are that dark here. "

"What a lovely place: location is fab.. and the birds abound in the trees in the garden and make a sit on one of the terraces around the house a joy. Whirlpool, plenty sitting spaces etc. We loved our stay and felt sad to leave. Please do not forget to do the Lake Okareka walkway and bring your binos as the bird life is prolific"
