Absolutely loved this place. It is a real campsite. In natural setting, large spots with Great Lake views. Good short walks for short stayers. Fantastic lake Wanaka experience. Lovely lady who did her best to give us a spot with a view. Ask for 99!! Simple, very good facilities. 1 dollar for a shower to help safe energy and water. Jump in the lake.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 79 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
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.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
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...
