Welcome to Water People Tours & Camp Kapapa

Booking Online

We offer our campers a seamless experience on both desktop and mobile browsers. You can book your campsite quickly and easily from our homepage or on our other platforms, such as Airbnb or Hipcamp. Currently, the wall tent can only be booked through us on our website.

Reserve additional categorized properties (cabin, wall tent or lakefront campsites) or just a single tent site accommodation (sites 2, 3, 4, 5 or 7) by searching from the link above. If you select the ‘any’ category it will show all of our accommodations available, however if you just select a single location category then only that specific accommodation will display. On the booking page of each accommodation, you will find details such as description, amenities, bed size, and price.

Simplify your search through all accommodations with a dedicated search form on our booking page. The arrival/departure dates are required fields, but the number of adults and children are optional so feel free to adjust and customize the default form. In addition, unavailable dates will be greyed out and disabled indicating that they are reserved.

Campers will find a site that meets their needs and can make a reservation using the booking widget regardless of the device they use.

Camping Out

You may reserve multiple accommodations during one reservation if needed. Our booking system will automatically recommend the most suitable set of accommodations according to the number of guests.
This quick and smart automation will help you on your camping journey!

If you are interested in BYOT (Bring Your Own Tent) camping you may book via our Hip Camp site here.
There is a slight incline towards the middle of the campsite and then also down towards the bottom closer to the lake. Here is a short video clip to show the incline from the middle of the campsite to the bottom of the hill.

Chickadees Cabin
Chickadee’s cabin is a micro-cabin with an 8×8 sleeping area, a small kitchenette for coffee and water, as well as a small loft. An outdoor deck is available for dining. Chickadee’s cabin includes a grill, a fire pit, a flush toilet, and a camp shower.


We are an off-grid campsite. As a result, we do not have running water from a well or rely on electricity in any way. Campsites, however, are adequately lit and equipped. A fan and small air conditioner can be found in Chickadee’s cabin. Clean potable water is available at every campsite for drinking, cooking, washing dishes, and taking a shower.

Why go off the grid? Camping is off grid by nature, so in order to design our campsite with the least amount of invasiveness, we kept it simple but still provide our campers with the necessary amenities for their camping experience.
