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

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.

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...

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.

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.

We paid $41 for a powered campervan site for two here. Internet and showers are both $2 here in addition.
This site has a spectacular view over Lake Wanaka. The location otherwise isn't anything special - you're not close to shops or eateries. The facilities are a bit run-down and not particularly welcoming - I couldn't find a common area/lounge of any sort, which is unusual from what I've experienced. There are a lot more "permanent" or long-stay residents here than at the other places we stayed; people had some very fancy set-ups going on here! The path down to the bathrooms from the campsite where we stayed is a bit treacherous. It is not safe for flip flops/thongs and you definitely need to bring your flashlight. This could definitely stand to be re-graded for safety.

This site is in a decent location and was the our only option close to Wanaka over the busy Christmas period otherwise there is no way we would have stomached the hefty fees. It's one of those sites where you're allotted a pitch which I am never keen on although they were a decent size. Most campers had enormous tents, caravans, boats etc so this was just as well. The staff were quite friendly and helpful initially, although when we enquired about a curfew after putting up with a large group of neighbours heavily involved in an 80s tribute night for long enough this issue was skirted by Glenn and we were made to feel bad for asking about it - the curfew was "10-10:30 going on midnight". The lakeside location is handy with walks and trails along the river and some good swimming spots and the facilities are good. A perfect site if you want a booze up with your mates but not somewhere if you want to enjoy the sites and sounds of the location.

We're a couple traveling from Australia over the Christmas period for 3 weeks. This was a lovely place with great views and just outside of Wanaka Town Centre (short drive). One of the nicest spots on the lake (short walk to the water front). Kitchen was a little bit crowded over this Christmas period. Toilets and showers were very clean.

Wonderful location, excellent facilities and well run. Only complaint...not the $1 for 5 minutes of shower but that the timer box is outside the shower cubicle and starts the moment you insert the money. Thus you have to undress, open the door, put in your money and quickly shower. If 5 minutes is not enough then repeat the process while wet. Other campgrounds had the box inside the shower cubicle which is much more convenient.

Campsite was situated a little further away from the town center so we had to make sure we had all our shopping done before going to the site. Owner was nice and has a very friendly dog called Luna who loves tummy rubs. Wanted to have a picnic by the lake but was too windy and cold so we went back to eat next to our campervan. Toilets are clean and nice but showers are $1/5 mins. Nice place to stay for a night.

Stayed 2 nights due to snow skiing at Cardrona, gave 9/10 as views are hindered by all the trees that make these sites feel like your own private spot, so it depends if you want a view or privacy - you can choose your own site (this may depend on how busy they are), clean facilities, free BBQ's, helpful staff who gave a discount for 2 night stay, great views down towards the lake, would stay here again - may just choose a location closer to the lake.
A little difficult to find at first - from Wanaka take Anderson Road, then right onto Aubrey Road and left onto Outlet Road, a little gravel road will lead to your location.

Really nice lakeside campsite with nice views. A little out of town, perhaps a disadvantage if you don't have wheels but otherwise an advantage. Pretty big tent/camper sites (some bigger than others, so look around before selecting one) - far bigger than at many other campgrounds. Nice, helpful people running the place. Super clean (I saw the staff down on hands and knees scrubbing the kitchen floor one morning). Highly recommended.

Friendly staff, well thought out and maintained facilities, pet friendly, close enough to Wanaka without being in town and easy access to the water from just about anywhere! The most impressive thing about this campground is that every site is numbered, meaning you get your own designated space and privacy. Glenn was so incredibly patient, helping us to find just the right spot for our hammocks, even at the end of a scorching day when the office was teaming with people. We stayed in the middle of the high season and couldn't fault the place :)

A park that will surprise. This park is just out of the main shopping centre of Lake Wanaka, but worth it.
The staff are happy friendly and caring. Gave us extra blankets at no cost as we had a smashed back window covered with waxed cardboard.
The park had great views of snow capped mountains and Lake Wanaka. Enjoyable walking track around Lake Wanaka.
Facilities surprised me. Don't think I have been to a holiday park that has heat lamps in each toilet and shower. Wonderful on the cool Sept mornings!!
Clean colour coordinated cloth towels and dryers available.
BBQ facilities are modern and positioned with a view. Outdoor table setting covered with a canopy of plants.

Amenities good, host lady very friendly and welcoming. Only drawback is that the whole camping ground is very dusty, no grass, and customers really must be considerate of each other when driving (and they should be made aware at arrival!), which unfortunately in some cases they are not. Bit challenging to find the facilities at night when you are at the top level as there is no light and access via a steep narrow path.Good walking tracks around.

Do you want a great Camping / Van stay in Wanaka a an affordable Price? This is certainly a very good option. We stayed here for 5 days recently. All the facilities are more than adequate but the views of the Lake, the alps and the Clutha river are magnificent. There is heaps of room with plenty of options as to where you park up or pitch your tent. Of course you can opt to stay in one of the many cabins which suit your budget. There are also DOC along the river and lake side which we thoroughly enjoyed.

I stayed at this very unique and bush setting camp ground for just on two and a half weeks over December- January, what a awesome spot.I found that the facilities were always clean.The owners of the camp Glen & Tracy were very helpful, they went out of their way to help when ever there was a problem, what ever it may of been. the view was out of this world, the walks, bike tracks were amazing. The camp was dog friendly which you cannot find at many camp grounds. I will certainly return there next time I'm back in N.Z. I recommend this camp ground to everyone.

I stayed here for 3 weeks, this spot has a WOW factor, extremely friendly, helpfull owners, local knowledge was out standing. The camp it self was huge & very interesting to wander around, the scenic beauty & walks were outstanding a far cry from the normal commercially run camps that I have experienced in my travels.This camp is a must to visit, the excess to the lake & the lake views is sensational. The camp facility's were very clean, I noticed that they had a thorough clean twice daily, which is very good, yes you did have to pay a $1.00 for a hot shower & pay to use the washing machines, but don't we live in a user pay world???? I will return to this camp when ever Im in the Wanaka area, and recommend this camp to any one.

While we did have a great view from our pitch, and the manager was friendly, I could not recommend this park for several reasons. For starters, the dirt road into the park is so badly rutted. It is like driving over a washboard. When we arrived, we could not find anyone at reception. Eventually the owner did show up, but it was frustrating to ring with no response. To reach the bathrooms from our pitch, you had to walk down a steep dirt trail. If it has been raining, it would have been a slide through the mud. The rubbish bins were overflowing and the facilities just had an overall run down appearance. There was an ad posted for someone to come to work in this park to help maintain it. Obviously, the folks who run it are unable to keep it up at the current time.

Beautiful setting, but a bit shabby in appearance. Hardly any grass, and it can be windy. But given that, it works fine as a basic facility. Easy access to lake and river trails.

Very friendly welcome and a choice of spots (we were asked if we wanted to be secluded or with others, close to the amenities etc) An absolutely stunning location with incredible views across the lake to Mt Aspiring...top notch! Great walks around the lake, clean facilities only downside was $1 for a 5 minute shower (water was hot tho!) Washing machines available but says takes 25mins when they take more like 45 mins...overall one of our favourite places to stay, we had lovely quiet secluded un-powered sites which cost us $28 for the night. noice!

Fantastic campsite with great views over the lake. Glenn and Tracy provide a very warm welcome and have a great deal of local knowledge so can recommend activities and outings to suit anybody's tastes. There are some beautiful walks right by the campsite and direct access to awesome trout fishing and also world class mountain biking right on the doorstep. Definitely highly recommend this campsite and hope to be back one day!

Beautiful lakeside campsite, with a great lakeside walk to Albert Town.

Reasonably priced at $28 for two people in a campervan - without power.

Downside was $1 for the shower, which didn't last that long, $3 for washing and $3 for drying wasn't too bad though as both had a long cycle.

Totally unimpressed by this holiday park. Facilities were basic - they are in desperate need of a complete upgrade. Beautiful location does not make up for poor facilities. Over-priced when one considers other similarly priced parks with far better facilities. Seems to me that many other reviewers have very low expectations and are willing to accept low standards whilst paying hefty rates.

We were here for three nights and had a great stay. This campsite is a little out of Wanaka. The location is fantastic, right on the lake. You are right beside a lovely lakeside DOC walk. The campsite is very green, with native bush. The sites are large and ours felt really private and secluded though a quick walk to the facilites. Great that there is no artificial lighting around the site at night. It feels very natural. Only you have the upside of the comforts of a good kitchen and hot showers. Glenn and Tracy are really friendly with good suggestions of things to do. We loved it here and ended up staying an extra night because we didn't want to leave!

FANTASTIC! My Family made the trip through from Dunedin, we hired out a 3 room tent, this came fully kitted out with everything you could possibly need - literally just turn up with clothes and food and your sorted, plus you get the 'camping' experience, beautiful views, lake is a stones through away. Hosts were fantastic and friends, facilities are top notch, showers must be on gas - high pressure instant hot water. Camping ground gives off more of a rural/nature camping feel that an actual holiday parks, sites are nicely situated between manuka trees and bushes - so very private. Lots of walking/biking scenic tracks close, some go through to Wanaka township. We thoroughly enjoyed it, our 4.5 year old son was in love. Couldn't get over how much stuff came with the tent! Was exactly like the true NZ camping experience - just without the setting/packing up :) Loved it and will stay again.

Probably my favourite site from a month's campervanning in NZ. Such a beautiful location, my van directly overlooking the lake and mountains, good facilities, really friendly and helpful campsite owners and great to be able to hire a bike to ride round the lakeside to Wanaka itself. And a sensible price for a single traveller. Don't be put off by the dirt road to get there - well worth the bumps. Lovely!

Stayed here one night in a hired camper. Great location. Site over looked the lake and the beginning of the mighty Clutha River (that we followed along down to the Clyde Dam). Lovely people and camp layout in the trees. Only downside was the showers. Low pressure single taps that you adjust yourself and change as others turn on and off their taps. Quite dangerous for children.
