This large sheltered campsite is suitable for larger vehicles. There are lots of different areas to park up on and call your own and there is a large turning bay at the end of the gravel road.
This is a great place for fishing, swimming, BBQing and walking. The Lake Gunn Nature Walk starts from here, it is a flat, easy, 45 min return walk from the campsite to the edge of Lake Gunn

Pretty much paying for proximity at this campsite. The long drop toilets are not too great, but at least have sanitizer. We saw quite a few people using the outdoor kitchens which looked nice. The spots are plentiful and big at least!

Great Place. Lots of space between two crystal clear creeks. With the toilets it might depend on what day you arrive. It appears that on a Sunday afternoon the toilets may have been serviced for a couple of days because of the weekend. We arrived on the Sunday afternoon and some of the toilets were not in a good state. Maybe they get only cleaned on working days in which case you will find them in good order. Apart from that we had a great time.

Great spot if you are heading to the Milford Sound. Reasonably priced. Would recommend this campsite. Just make sure you have some insect repellent :)
This is a great location! The campgrounds has plenty of sites and we were able to enjoy a quiet corner to ourselves. It works as a great spot to stay the night before a Milford Sound early morning cruise.
Lots of space! Long drop toilets that were kinda gross. Good if you need to get to Milford Sound early the next morning.
I don't know why everyone keeps complaining about the toilets, they were totally fine, no smell and had toilet paper. Maybe some were better than others but the ones we tried had no issues. Also, we parked in the middle of the campground to have some more wind which means Zero sandflies! Great stargazing at night and close to Milford sound. Overall a really nice experience!
Great place to stop before a day at Milford Sound. Tucked between the mountains and the forest by the lake it was well sheltered. Very busy but lots of space. Many people leaving early in the morning to go for cruises but not noisy at all. Drop toilets.
Great walk by the lake. Large open space with plenty of parking. Nice river for a quick swim. There’s water for drinking and cleaning dishes which is great. Self contained and non self contained vehicles, as well as tents, are welcome. Great location. Picnic tables and clean toilets were nice. Little fire places to build a bit of a bbq /campfire if you have some firewood. Only downside is the sand flies - there weren’t a lot but they did bother us a bit when we were sitting outside. But for the area that’s unavoidable!
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 😍
