Nice spots, kitchen and dining room are fine. Bathrooms have room for improvement. Hot or warm water wasn‘t available during our stay. wifi is limited and unstable. So a bit overpriced. 21 NZD for non powered.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 78 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
Very big campground, cozy and a little bit dated. Unpowered site for 1 person 21,-
Laundry, fully equipped kitchen, hot showers (you have to activate the hot water before entering the shower and it lasts for 7 min, included in the price) only 3 showers but did not have to wait. WiFi does only work next to the office, limited to 400mb
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Ended up here after Possum’s didn’t have any vacancies left (hung a paper on the porch that sad “Don’t come in and ask!”).
Loads of space for your tent, terrain is beautiful with many oldtimers, trees and plenty of picknick tables. Had a beautiful spot with views of the mountains out of our tent. Didn’t hear the road too much. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Showers are free and work, kitchen is a bit dirty and outdated.
This was the first night in ages I wasn’t attacked by sandflies! :) The beach with a great view on the mountains is within a 5 min walk, nice cafe closeby.
In conclusion, it isn’t a top10 campground, but it is a place with character with plenty of privacy and a beautiful environment.

We ended up here when we couldn't get into Possum Lodge down the road. When we arrived the elderly owner started complaining to us about tourists and campervans which seemed a bit odd but I'd read a few other reviews that had mentioned this on CamperMate so I was prepared! When I mentioned we were going on to Milford she started on about how it had been ruined (which, having since been don't agree with). None of this was aggressive, just not the most welcoming.
Camp itself is nice enough and has some quirky but quite dated. Showers are free. Manapouri lake is just across the road.
Cost (2p, non-powered): $38
Location: Lots of space, close to Manapouri Lake.
Facilities: Kitchen with a few items and cooking facilities, showers and flush toilets. Good but slightly dated. The games room doesn't look like it's been used in years! Wifi is free (but didn't work)
Sandflies: A few at the lake, didn't see any in the camp
Other: There's cheap petrol available in Manapouri so top-up before you drive up to Milford.
Showers are free, they just have a timer on them like in many other camping sites.
Great experience, would go back right away. The owner was lovely and the camping is in a great location. We woke up yo views of the lake and the mountains. The place could do with an upgrade but it has a lot of personality and everything you need: spacious kitchen with pots and pans, bathrooms in good condition, laundry room (paying), and even a games room. There is a pub next to it as well.
Note - showers are not free! We paid for an unpowered site and innocently used the shower. The elderly owner then came to our van and tried to extort money from us ($5 for the shower and $5 for ‘lying’ apparently) after bullying us and telling us what a problem campers are in NZ. Beautiful location, shame about the unreasonable and confrontational owner.
Great campsite with friendly owners. There’s clearly been a lot of love and personality put into this site. Fantastic location, free showers and no sandflies!
Nice place with much room to camp in the open or almost in the woods - whatever you prefer.
Staff friendly and welcoming, showers hot and clean.
Paid 20pp for two on an unpowered site - quite pricey imho, but no place around Te Anau seems be be much cheaper.
