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.

Mixed views on this campsite, great location, which is excactly why they can charge the high premium that they do, it all about their location, my first impression when we got there was nice site & we arrived early about 12.00 midday after a pre booking had been made the day before, they tried to put us on a pitch which was only capable of a small van like a juicy or VW & we had a 7 mtr merc sprinter which I had booked so it was frustrating, but the new pitch was perfect. However the shower & kitchen & dinning areas although high quality & standards & cleanliness good they are insufficient for the number of guests & certainly the kitching & dinning area was a bit of a lotery as to when you could get in to use it or get seated, staff were helpful & they had sand fly replant in reception for use & run a shuttle bus to the ferry terminal which was helpful & we booked our excursion through the site which again was useful, the guy driving the bus was very helpful & informative would have score the site higher if more of the good facilities, nice walk up by the river edge to the site worth doing

Beautiful campsite with lodge feeling and fantastic views of the mountains (especially stunning after some proper rain). Clean and friendly with a nice café. While we were there, they had some issues with the hot water.
