Friendly hosts. Showers only $0.50, laundry $2. Walking distance to town, pubs, Four Square, Hammer Hardware, and cafes. For a fee, hosts will pick up/drop of for Te Araroa walkers.

Great big camp ground in walking distance of Methven Town. The facilities were a bit old but very clean and tidy, and there was heaps of cooking equipment in the kitchen which was helpful.

The camp ground was run down and one of the most expensive yet one of the poorest facilities we experienced during our 2 week south island tour. Would recommend others to stay elsewhere. Electronic systems are antiquated yet they as for your electrical wof! Location was quiet enough and good access to Mt Hutt and Methven stores.

This was a brilliant place, great value for all the facilities and the owners so friendly and helpful. Great hot showers, (50c for a plenty of time) sparkling clean, big kitchen with everything you need and a fun games room. Stayed early April and got there early so wasn’t too busy but they get busy in ski season I gather. Very near the town and a great base for walks up Haketere way. Oh, and a gorgeous Labrador puppy in the grounds plus two fluffy cats we spotted.

While travelling the length of New Zealandby bicycle, the Methven campground was one of the friendliest we stayed at. Well-stocked kitchen, clean hot showers for only $.50 and a lovely new camping pod cabin. The owners were extremely helpful and no question or request was too difficult. Recommended!

Travelling with 5 kids we absolutely loved this campground. Basic, simple but was totally suitable for our needs and the kids had an awesome time running around in the big spaces. Would definitely stay here again.
