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.

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.

Da wir mit unserem Motorhome etwas Pech hatten, standen wir zwei Nächte auf Franz Josef Top10.
Trotz Dauerregen war es das sauberste Camp das ich jemals gesehen habe.

We paid $70 (powered site (there are no non powered sites)) for one night, you have only 250mb free wifi. When you want to use the spa pool you have to pay for it.
You pay a lot of money for nothing.

Modern and clean facilitairs, camoervan lost are rather small and it gets filled up in the evening. There was a water problem in the morning but that was solved within 30 minutes. Expensive campsite, 78 for 3, for just an overnight stay.

Nice spot but expensive for a campervan site. Hot showers but town on severe water restrictions so laundry closed & unable to fill water in van, wi-fi wasn’t really working either. Big parking spots and lots available when other places were full.

Easily the worst Top 10 we have been to. Facilities were dirty, looked like they had not been cleaned in a while. Trash was overflowing. Site was like a dust bowl. Location is well out of town, a 20 minute walk with no proper foot path alongside the main highway is not suitable for kids. The playground sucked (the opinion of my 4 year old), there was one bbq for a big camp and wifi was next to useless. There are better options closer to town!
