Really lovely campsite, nice kitchen facilities, clean showers and toilets. Was spring time when we stayed and it was a cold evening, they had a stove lighting in the kitchen which was so nice to sit at. Good facilities for doing laundry as well. The best campsite we have stayed in on our 2 week trip around the south island.

This is a fantastic caravan park - clean, fresh, tidy and well-positioned. The bathrooms were immaculate, the communal kitchen and dining area were great, and laundry facilities cheap and new. The park facilities were well maintained. The township of Fox Glacier is lovely and I would recommend this caravan park if you're looking for a nice place to park up in town.

Literally the worst holiday park ive stayed in, in my 6 weeks in new zealand. We stayed in a cabin that was $80 a night .it came with no bedding and well i think ive seen nicer prison cells. The walls very extremely thin. There was no were near enough cooking facilites for all the guests. Every kitchen was overcrowded. The campervan spots are so closed together with little privacy. It is sposed to be a superior park but i dont know how. The only reason i havent given it 1 is because it was clean and in a good location.

Hot showers, laundry, kitchen - it gets the job done, however the park is lacking in atmosphere and scenery. The sites are pitched together so close, they feel more like a premium parking spot. Bathrooms were reasonably clean. Kitchen was clean as well but very packed and didn't even provide bins or tea towels. We found $50 a steep price for two people in an unpowered site quite close to the road.

Planned on staying here originally on a powered site, so glad we didn't. We were lucky enough to find a great motel with power

We accidentally arrived here after doing the glacier/Matheson. After experiencing troubles with an air lock in our camper we followed signs to the 'public'!!!! Dump!!! Site!!!
Apparently they don't understand that dump sites advertised on road signs are publicly accessible.....

Anyway the owners haven't any compassion or manners for polite friendly people (me and my partner.) we were hastily ordered to leave. Had our waste pipe ripped out and were hounded by the lady (bitch) in charge.

Avoid this place!!!! Other places deserve your custom, unless you prefer the company of ass holes that is 👍

Overpriced for a powered site 5 feet from the next bay ($55) and they charge extra for using a credit card. Wouldn't accept discount promotion from Apollo which had been accepted at other Top 10 sites, basically take it or leave it attitude at reception. Was given a measly 250mb of Wi-Fi which was obviously throttled back and kept dropping out. Site is nothing out of the ordinary, toilets, showers, kitchen area TV lounge and laundry. Unless you're stuck find something else before Fox Glacier.

Lovely mountain views. Great proximity to Lake Matheson walk - allowed us to access Reflection viewpoint at the prime window of opportunity! Clean, modern facilities. Plenty of kitchen space, BBQ, clean toilets and hot showers - just what you should expect from a Top 10 park. Sites are quite close together - also found this to be the case at other Top 10 parks. Location and standard of facilities are reasons to stay here - good after a day or two of hard hiking. But it's a pricey choice for those with freedom camping as an alternate option.

Very good facilities, as you'd expect from a Top 10. Clean bathrooms, though perhaps not enough toilets and showers for when the park is really busy? Sites are gravel and functional; quite close together. But you can see the mountains from the park, and the kitchen and wifi is good. Good position for getting into town for glacier expeditions. Good washing machines and driers.

As a place to plug in, dump waste and catch up on washing after a few days of freedom camping this is a very good spot. Although there is a Butlins feel to it, the facilities are excellent and in new-ish condition. Underfloor heating in bathrooms and unlimited hot showers, well laid-out sites with good lighting and amenities. Laundry OK, although washing machine didn't spin well so had to dry clothes for a long and expensive time. Conveniently sited close to centre of village.

Memorable for all the wrong reasons. Others have mentioned how unfriendly the staff can be and the exorbitant cost and I'd add my agreement on both fronts. The manager was the rudest person I've met in any tourist related enterprise in the country. After writing to highlight how hard he had to work to make me unhappy with my time in Fox Galcier, he continued to display complete ignorance of basic customer service in his reply back. Unwilling to learn from free feedback, I suspect fundamentals of customer service will be an advanced course for him after taking an introductory course to social interaction and an anger management course.

A great place to stay. We had one night here and have two teenage children. It was very clean, tidy and spacious holiday park with great facilities.
The shower areas were spacious and all facilities were very clean.
Great kids play area and beautiful views.

Stayed here for one night before doing the glacier walk the following day.
Pros
Really well designed site.
Friendly staff.
Best facilities we experienced in a month of motor parks.

Cons
Light went off when showering....

This was a great campsite, would recommend to anyone spending time in Fox Glacier. Well equipped and designed!

I wasn't a customer but just passed by to ask a question to the lovely staff when the boss just kicked me out for not being a customer.

Greedy and unwelcoming... But I guess much nicer once you paid the fee...
