Very pleasant staff, has a excellent restaurant on the site if you don’t wish to cook yourself. The bathrooms, showers, kitchen and lounge were all very clean and exceeded expectations. Best campsite I’ve been too so far, I was very happy with my experience.

This is the only place to stay near Milford sound but be prepared with books or games if you are stuck here on a rainy evening. No tv or WiFi are provided. The showers were big and clean!

Stayed here one night, pretty busy even in the off/winter season - it was the busiest place we stayed at our whole trip! Facilities were still clean and the powered site was close to others but separated by plants and trees. Generally a very beautiful spot to stay! Gender neutral bathrooms and showers that were pretty spacious which was great for two people to get ready in. Would be a 10 if the kitchen was slightly better equipped. It was only just coping with the number of people needing to cook - can't imagine what it's like when it's busier.

Pretty sure this is the only campground in Milford. But nice site under the mountains. Tucked away between the trees with rainforest feel. Nice pitches and great facilities. Large shower/toilet/sink rooms. Nice large kitchen/lounge area to relax in. Staff very helpful!

Thank you for a wonderful stay. Your staff are top class, and provided so much local knowledge, top tips and so much passion for Milford. Thank you to Charlotte for her recommendations about the Gertrude Saddle hike (wonderful!), the observatory and that a rainy cruise would be as rewarding as a sunny one. The guy from Brazil was also incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Facilities are top class and really friendly atmosphere. We also appreciated little touches like the free insect repellent, free umbrella hire and the great crockery in the shared kitchen.

Best toilet and shower facilities so far. The kitchen is often crowded. But it's very expensive (60$ for two people with a powered site) and you have to pay extra for washing machine, dryer and wifi. It's a nice place and the only place to stay at Milford, but to expensive.
