We stayed in a powered site for 1 night, the sites were both spacious and positioned so they had some privacy. We chose our site beside a lovely walkway up the hill (4 minutes walk) where a table and chairs were at the top of this beautiful area. The laundry was excellent as well as the kitchen! Clean and everything... More

Stayed in a kitchen cabin and it was clear that nothing had been updated for quite some time, even the tv was an old style 14 inch portable, we felt like we had stepped back in time about 20 years, the room was also a bit smelly. The bathrooms weren't the cleanest either. The grounds needed a lot of work... More

Did some laundry with average or non working washing machines - our other travellers lost money to the machines, dryers did not dry clothes after 2 lots of coins, stoves and cooktops did not work very fast, we spent an hour too long cooking on very slow cooktops and others ended up going back to their van to cook. No... More

It was great to finally arrive at this beautiful destination after a long day traveling in our camp. A pleasant camp with clean (unisex) facilities. Good showers. Warm welcome despite late arrival. Heading north out of Franz Josef, on the left (west). The clouds lifted in the morning enough to see the view of the mountains from the camp.

We stayed for one night at this camping site in our camper van, it met all our needs, and it was a welcome sight after a long day driving. We have an early start next day, but managed to walk round Lake Matheson before we continued with our journey.

A good location and good value for money. Very basic but clean with everything you're going to need. Our room had a kitchenette but the toilet and shower room was outside down the path. Mind the moths at night (shudder). Parking right outside the room was very convenient. We only stayed one night and that was enough for me but... More

We chose to stay here after a long day of driving in the camper van, so the site was chosen based on convenience rather than research. Had we researched more we would have stayed at one of the other locations we noticed while walking in the small village. The view of the glacier from the site is nice, but during... More

This place was good, but didn't blow us away. We had a powered campsite and did enjoy the view of the mountains in the morning. While the receptionist was super nice, the facilities could use a bit of an update. But then again, we did see worse in New Zealand. This was the least nice of the Top 10 parks... More
