Amazing location. Beautifully surrounded by mountains, and right at the start of the Hooker Valley walk. Flushing toilets were generally clean.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Fantastic views of the mountains. Toilets are good. Kitchen area is large, there's no warm water to do dishes, so boil your own kettle.
The hooker valley track gets busy from late afternoon onwards, so get on your feet early to have the track to yourself!
Best campsite I’ve ever stayed at. Absolutely beautiful views and 3 pristine walking tracks right off the campsite. Potable water, flush toilets, nice sinks, and the doc for Mount Cook national park is really close by as well and so interesting! We came at 7pm and still found a spot.
Perfect location for tramping around mount cook. Campsite is basic, only toilets and shelter. But view is awesome!
We paid $26 for unpowered site, 2 persons.

Very very busy, get in quick before it’s full and people park sideways in the designated bays. Very nice place to view the stars.
Toilets and dishwashing kitchen, no showers.
One of the best camping sites in the areas with fantastic views to wake up to in the morning
Excellent views and many different beautiful walks. Did enjoy the hooker Valley wall which takes about 3 hours return and offeres views of glacier lakes with ice on them. Kea point walk was also nice. Do go here for the walks! Facilities were good, the price is not cheap since it is a scenic doc site. Paid 13 for non-powered site per person.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
