This place was very nice.
Spot - nice spot plenty of room.
Toilets/showers - not bad for a campsite.
Kitchen - didn't use.
Staff - very friendly.
Wifi - didn't use.
View - great views of the lake.
Also - the road coming in is gravel and pretty rough for a campervan.

Great site at the lake and close to the river. We had beautiful views at our powered site. Toilets and kitchens are ok.I don't like to pay separately for my shower of WiFi, if the costs os the campsite are already high.

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.

Awesome place, bit off the road (bumpy access road), but worth it. Nice, helpful people. Clean warm showers ($1, 5 minutes), clean toilets, kitchen, BBQs, bike rental. Beautiful powered, unpowered and tent sites. Ask for sites at "The Lookout" for a beautiful view at the lake. Also there is a hiking trail to Wanaka along the beach (7.1 km) starting at the campsite.

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.
