Very nice campsite with plenty of space. Owner and staff are extremely friendly. Kitchen and bathrooms are very clean. 500 MB Wifi available. Beautiful view on the mountains. Many laundry mashines and dryers available.
We would definitely come back.

Large campground wit many sites. Good clean facilities. No extra items in kitchen but you can hire stuff. Showers are hot. Laundries have too few working machines. Considering the camp was not busy when we stayed we had a long wait for a washing machine and dryer. Sites are flat and convenient for most facilities.

Place is fine but

Map is incorrect, directions took me to the wrong place. Real location is 600m north

Excellent facilities with good well spaced pitches (better than many we have visited so far). We needed to change our reservation and this was done with no issues at all. The site is some way out of town which could be an issue. No hesitation in recommending this TOP 10 site.

Lovely spot just out of town but still close enough could walk if wanted. Good size park with good facilities. Kitchen and bathrooms were good space. They had a family bathroom with a small bath for small children.

We traveled the South Island in a motor home. We were low on water so we stopped in at the Franz Josef top 10 and filled our water tank. An upset man approached us and told us to come to the office. He charged us $100.00 to fill our water tank! Would not take less. We did not stay and kept on our way. As out of country tourists this was our only rude experience. I felt I have to warn other travelers of this operators policies. He told us that we would not allow strangers into our home to use the facilities and neither will he.

I thought the staff was very helpful but the holiday park needs some TLC in the gardens, driveways, fences and general cleaning up of the whole premises. We travelled through quite a lot of the Top Ten parks in the South Island and Franz Josef wasn't one that was appealing.
