We stayed 3 nights here due to avalanche risks and roads being closed. The place is really beautiful, lots of toilets and showers which are very clean. Common room does get crowded of a night time but it is expected as this is one of the only places to stay in Milford. Staff are very friendly and helpful. It's close to lots of walks and the boat terminal.
The restaurant is amazing, definitely suggest having dinner here if you have the extra money to spend

Amazing location and surrounding scenery. Sites feel very secluded and private which was a nice change. Kitchen was excellent and even had a supply of pots,pans, plates etc which could be used as well as what came with our camper. Very roomy showers which was also much appreciated. Nice area with couches to relax and chat with others. Thanks to the staff who rang our cruise company to confirm our cruise for the following day. No wifi which was a nice change. We enjoyed our brief stay.

A pleasant place to stay. The highway closed at 5pm and reopened at 8am due to weather. The staff were awesome and very friendly. We are in the restaurant and were surprised on the quality and taste of the food. Very good! It rained the entire time but we made the most of the overnight stay in the lounge room with games. Everything was neat and tidy. Nice and warm showers and buildings were all warm and cozy. No Wi-Fi but that didn't kill us! Boat ride Milford Cruise was good. Small boat, small crowd and a nice clean boat.

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.
