This is by far and a way the campsite to stop at in Wanaka. If you want a site near town this is the one. But hard to find but right on lake and the powered sites have the best views, just breath taking of mountains and lake.
The site has mountain bikes to rent, we had our own which meant we could bike the lake side walk to town, 7 km of view after view. You can also bike the other way down the river, also fun and a great walk too .
Quality site, good facilities. Big but not a holiday park, just friendly family place.
Would recommend to anyone

Great staff, and nice and secluded camp sites.
Facilities were ok, although hot water and WiFi are not free.
We had a great view of the lake, and we would stay here again.

Verrry windy, have to pay for the showers, not the best facilities, when we arrived, Someone had moved the campsite number we were in so we spent a while confused as to where we should be. We had 2 adults and a 2 and 3 year old, I think we paid $68 from memory for a powered site. Probably wouldn’t stay again.

Fantastic location. Very big site, we ended up with a site on an angle but there were lots of flat ones. Showers were lovely but there was a charge for hot showers. Didn’t use kitchen as got pizza delivered to the site.

Great campsite. Very friendly staff. Toilets and showers dated but clean. Views amazing. Very large site so can be far from utility blocks. We were lucky.

Camping with a exceptional view on the lake and the surrounding mountains.
The facilities are clean but could be a bit far depending on where your spot is (The compound is quite big)
Overall a nice and quiet experience.

What a great place to stay! Warm welcome, stunning views and
basic but superclean facilities. And free stargazing at night! Nice walk along the river Clutha to Albert Town (1h20). Highly recommended!

We arrived into Wanaka on a very hot late summer Friday night and all campsites were booked up, except this one. You can’t book here (or couldn’t when we visited), it works on a first-come first-served basis, and the i-Site told us to visit here on the off chance. We did and took the campsite’s last remaining plot, a non-powered site right at the bottom and close to the lake with unspoilt views. In places like this you should expect to pay higher prices, so it didn’t bother us, we were just delighted to be able to stay in such a beautiful place. We decided to stay an extra 2 nights and moved to a powered site, still with a stunning view. Facilities are fine, paid showers. Can get dusty in good weather, not a problem for us though. We hired bikes from the campsite (very basic) and cycled around the headland to the town (I think 6ish miles) which was fab. If you accept you might have to pay more, I would recommend here. I think it would be nicer than the other campsites closer to the town...

Superb campsite, pitches are cleverly positioned to maximise views of the lake. It felt very spacious and quiet. Glenn and Tracy are fabulous, very friendly & efficient team! Great location, highly recommend!:)

If you ignore the price and all other adding charges it's a quite nice campsite because of the amazing lake view. But that's the price you pay for. No grass on Campground and very dusty when dry weather. Kitchen is roomy but not equipped at all, and really no utensils at all ! You have to pay 1$ for shower, 5$ for Wifi. It's really overcharged! Would only recommend this campsite for the lake view nothing else.

We went to this camping ground following the reviews but we have found something that do not match at all with what we expect. Extremely expensive, $40 for two people with a small tent, no grass for tents. Facilities are very very basic, no free WiFi, $1 for 5 minute shower. This is not a place for a tent if you are looking for a quiet and relaxing place.

We paid $41 for two adults!
Decent campsite, though its a 1km gravel road to the entrance of the campsite due to road construction. Good space between campervans. Needs a short walk to toilet ($1/5mins of hot shower), and $3 each for washing and drying of clothes (laundry).
Campsite is sandy road. So cars that go past too quickly, you may get the dirt. Has a dumping ground on site too.

Spent 3 nights here in glorious sunshine and clear blue skies in mid Nov - Tracy and Glen were great when we needed them and the pitch for our Motor was perfect.Views to die for and a nice gentle breeze. 1 point deducted for the surroundings to the pitches which were quite dusty due to the location. A short walk to the lake for swimming and sun bathing and early evening drinks made for a perfect location for our trip

One of our favourite sites during our trip. We had such a great view of the lake, plus the guys who run it give great info about seeing the southern lights, etc. Wifi and facilities are good, it's a really quiet spot but slightly out of the way if you want to walk into the town.
