On the plus side generally the park is quite small and compact, mostly well presented and mostly clean (my daughter said the toilets were a bit ‘greasy’). Niggling issues were the lack of facilities given the number of people staying at peak season – this is quite a normal occurrence in New Zealand, but no doubt compounded by there only being 4 showers each for male and female, 4 toilets each for male and female and one lonely urinal. The kitchen facilities were similarly inadequate in number of cookers and sinks. There was a little queueing at peak times, but not the worst I’ve encountered. The drains at the back of the motels where our site was were poorly designed and very noisy, sometimes late at night.
Our troubles concerned to site we were given. There was poor communication it had been divided in half to squeeze in a campsite. When asked to move our caravan, which was crossing the line, by 2 staff they were not interested in our complaints about difficult site access and its small size making fitting caravan and car there very difficult, and that we were reluctant to move. They left seemingly saying 'that's ok then'. The owner Brad came the morning after. He is the rudest campground owner/manager I have ever encountered. He was not interested when I complained (quite forcefully as I was still annoyed from the day before) about the site. No sorry, no empathy. He was just incensed that he lost $65 from being unable to use the campsite that we had previously been told was ok to occupy. Money was more important than our complaint. Even after I moved the caravan, angry words (but no prophanity or loud scene) continued until we were evicted from the site on the grounds of 'your not being happy staying at the park' and 'your attitude'.

We have been at top 10 parks before and always found great camp-grounds which fit into natural NZ surroundings. Therefor this one in Te Anau is very disappointing. No
real campground, more a large parking area within compound of cabins. Extremely good facilities though. But not our idea of camping in one of the best sceneries in NZ.

Nice enough but small pitches all lined up close together. Said 48$ on Rankers and it was actually 59$ for a one night 2 people powered site which is way too expensive for what it is.

Everyone rates cleanliness of the bathrooms and the overall atmosphere of the park. Certainly this park rates a 10 in both of those categories. The thing that blew us away was the absolutely outstanding service of Brad. We had a blocked sink and he literally had us in his maintenance shed to clear the line. we have never experienced anyone who has gone so far over and above our expectations. This place really deserves a 12. Did I mention they have a Jacuzzi tub as well. Best place we have stayed this trip.

A great park for kids, excellent kitchen area and toilet/showers. The fireplace in the lounge area was beautiful.

Very new modern bathroom and kitchen facilities. Good lounge area and lots of space in the kitchen. Laundry good as well. Wifi only works in the main building. Expensive $$ $48 for 2 people in a non powered site. Did not seem right as a powered site was only $2 more? But if you have kids this is a good place as there was tons of stuff for them. Right in town, walk everywhere. People were very nice at reception as well.
