Lake Karāpiro on the Mighty River Domain is the perfect venue for a summer bluegrass festival.

Primarily used as a venue for water-based sporting events, it is set in extensive picturesque grounds near Cambridge. There are powered and unpowered camping sites, bunk rooms and great facilities.

There are a variety of venues for music at the Sir Don Rowlands Centre and lots of room for jamming.

You need to book your accommodation with Lake Karāpiro separately from your Kiwigrass Festival and Kiwigrass Academy tickets. 

You can only book camping at Lake Karāpiro if you are coming to the festival. Accommodation is available from Monday 28 January so if you have travelled afar to go to the Auckland Folk Festival you can come straight to Lake Karāpiro and camp ready for the Kiwigrass Academy and the Kiwigrass Festival.

If camping is not your style, there are plenty of other options in the Cambridge and Hamilton area!
