62km along the Milford Road from Te Anau. A huge camping area with massive open grassy areas or private bit of beech forest to call your own for the night. The campsite is right next to the Eglinton River and there is a good swimming hole next to the little hill in the middle of the campsite. There are picnic tables, but fires are prohibited. Easy access for large vehicles, although there has been some issues with flooding which may restrict access to some sites and facilities.

The only good thing about this campsite was the river and trees surrounding. We payed $13 each for nothing more than a filthy drop toilet which neither of us would use because it was so dirty. A total robbery staying at any of the DOC campsites from Te Anau to Milford Sound

A great campsite sheltered beside a creek. Drop toilet only but clean for this type of facility. Approx 1hour 15 minute drive to Milford Sound whilst your looking at the views.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
If you come with a tent, get there early. Three nice covered places under the trees. There is a table and benches too. Wild flowers and river are beautiful. There is more space for camper vans. We went to the earliest Milford cruise from there.
Large camping area beside Eglinton River (more like a pretty creek), and adjacent to the Lake Gunn walk. Many sites to choose from, some under tree cover. Accommodates large vehicles. Drop toilets (as with all DOC camps in this area). $13pp.
This DOC campsite is the most expensive we stayed at. $13 per person with the only facility being a drop toilet which you don't use if you have a self contained campervan with a toilet. So what are you paying for compared to the others which are generally $6 per person? Probably the view... it is a big campsite compared to the others we checked out along the way. The creek and mountains are very pretty and mysterious. No service out there and very peaceful. Glad we chose this site for the serenity.
Really, really beautiful and good access to Milford Sound and walks. $6 per night it's not that expensive. Enjoy.
We at Rankers NZ, love to meet travellers on the road and share in some of the freedom. That's why Rankers NZ invites you to come and stay for free at our chill riverside overnight parking area in the Motueka Valley at the top of the South Island.
