Facilities are basic but the views are top notch. The White Horse Hill campsite is also the start point of many popular walks.

Really nice doc camp, unfortunately theres no lights in the dining/kitchen room so bring a lantern if you plan to use that area. Other than that it is well maintained and clean with good facilities, awesome walks and incredible views. $15 per night so not bad for the facilities and location
Good views of the mountains and the campground is right at the start of the Hooker Valley walk. Good toilets with lights at night.
Awesome place! Stay here for awesome walks just very cold!! Toilets are okay - been to better Doc with better toilets
A good spot to stay if you're wanting to do walks in the area. Kitchen/cooking area was spacious, toilets were fine, no showers. Landscape is stunning and the walks are great!
Absolutely fantastic site, big kitchen shelter with tables for stormy days and plenty of toilets all flushing ones in use in the summertime. Close to the walks and a walk into the village if you want to or a very short drive.
The best place close to mount cook, there are plenty of public toilets and water tanks to wash.
Beautiful campsite at the foot of the mountains. Grassy and gravel spots to park up or pitch a tent. A few picnic tables scattered about. A large shelter, bins, flushing toilets and sinks. No showers at campsite and toilets not very clean. Drinking water available from outside tap. A very confident family of Paradise ducks live here too!
Great spot, close to alot of the walks I wanted to do. Plenty of parking and tables available. Clean toilet facilities, the one we parked close to was unfortunately shut due to the winter period but there were other toilets close. Lots of wildlife (rabbits and birds), was sad not to see any Kea but i guess we were unlucky!
There is a registration area, only accepts cash and a DOC officer comes through in the morning to do eftpos if you didn't have cash (about 8:30ish he passed through). Would visit again!
Great campsite surrounded by breathtaking views to wake up to.
Treated water was nice to have, and the cooking shelter was lovely for the cold evenings.
Toilets are clean and flushable which was a nice change.
The views & easy access to the fabulous Hooker Valley were exceptional....Plenty of room to find a nice space & great amenities!

Stunning backdrop right at the base of Hookers Track and the ice mountains are wonderful! Just need to self register either on the DOC website or have cash to drop into the box.
Best place to stay right next to Mount Cook
Beautiful location. We could hear the lease at night. Clean toilet. Showers available at the main village which is 5 min drive away. No dump station until twizel. But love the place. It's magical. Has storm shelter for rainy days with sinks and tables.
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 😍
