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.

Very nice view at the surrounding mountains. The sunset and the changing colours are great. All spots are flat and the river is a wonderful but refreshing bath.
Drop toilet was OK but the sandflies are terrible if the wind has gone.

Pretty view of mountains and river very close, can't park alongside river though. Quite busy with lots of spots. Drop toilets were adequate. Few sandflies around.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Beautiful views of the mountains and right on a river. Lots of spots. Two drop toilets but no water. Sandflies were rather pesky, but to be expected.
Amazing views and plenty of space with a great access to a breathtakingly clear and beautiful river. Clean toilets, unfortunately lots of sandflies.

Location was very nice, but the price was $13 per person, too much if there is no kitchen, shower, toilet......
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.
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.
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 😍
