If you want to get the most out of your trip to Milford you should stay here. Campground was busy on a weekend in December but clean and beautiful. Contrary to other reviews we didn't have to queue for kitchen space or showers.
Plan a whole day for the drive to Milford and stop often along the way. Get to the camp site in the late afternoon and explore Milford Sound after all the day tourists have left then do the first cruise of the day the next morning.

Spots for vans are close together, separated by some vegetation.
No dumping station on site.
Facilities are clean.
Since you cant do a lot, aside the boat tour and a little walk to a lookout, ONE night is definitely enough.

Great site. Loses one point for charging for WiFi. Come on New Zealand, this is 2018 not 1998, WiFi should be a basic utility like water! Food was great in the evening for dinner. Book in advance as site and diner get busy! Great site. Pitches are close but divided and so private.

Lovely spaces in the trees, it gets quite busy but you get some privacy from the trees. Really nice facilities.

Their van sites were quite expensive for a single person in an unpowered van. To that end I stayed in the dorm (and was reminded why I hate dorms with all the cafe noise and late comers). The dorm uses the same facilities as the campervans though. With nearly all 50 campervan spots and the dorms about full there was not enough kitchen space for everyone. Overall clean bathrooms considering. There is also a laundry room though it is very expensive. They are pretty much the only game in town so you are stuck with them but I would not stay more than a night. Quite a crush.

Beautiful campsite. We were off season so we're able to turn up without booking in advance. But it's the only place out there so bit of a risk and it's expensive.
Facilities were ok. Not enough toilets and showers. Kitchen and lounge area were great. Staff helpful at booking you onto tours. Staff also advised us not to book for two nights - as most people do their tour and go - which was good advice.
No supermarket nearby so worth stocking up before you arrive.
