Follow the long gravel road down to the campsite. Plenty of turning space. This place is a popular with fishermen. There are some grassy bits to put up a tent, it's not really that sheltered for large vehicles. This campsite has picnic tables, BBQ's and a view of the valley.
Be careful when leaving as it is a very dangerous pull out to the main road.

Fantastic views overlooking running creek, flowering fields and snow capped mountains (also ducks)! Clean drop toilet. A few midges after dusk but that's at all the sites to Milford. Reasonably quite at this one compared to others nearby. We had DOC pass so not sure about normal costs.

Small camp set off the road with impressive views of the valley. Two picnic tables and one drop toilet (as with all DOC camps in this area). $13pp.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
This campsite should cost 8-10 dollars like others that offer the same service. No running water, the "BBQ" is a very primitive form of something that can be called like that, toilet is ok, the view is nice but it's near the river so be careful of sand flies. Ranking low because overpriced, location is great though, with flowers and snow capped mountains visible even in summer!
Could be a stunning spot but as we went there on a rainy winter day we didn't see much of it. Next to a river (which apparently does NOT flood the campsite even if it rains heavily all night). Basic dump toilets.
Not easy to access but a spot with a fantastic view. $6 per person is good value for the Fjordlands and the great mountain panorama view.
First part between road and river, low traffic after 7pm, flat gravel parking area, great view.
Come early and grab a solitary spot at the rear end. Beautiful. As always in the area, be prepared for sand flies.
Can't get any better than this! Perfect spot next to the river with incredible mountain views. Go!
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 😍
