Wonderful location! Close to everything you need in Milford Sound. You can book cruises and kayaks first thing in the morning prior to all the tourists that show up for the early arvo services. Very clean facilities- showers, toilets and kitchen. Very large and comfy community room. The star gazing is awesome and the river is just outside of the property. No dump station here, but there is one close to the marina. Pay attention to the driving times from Te Anau to here. Plan to avoid the bus departures from Te Anau around 10 am. There are some fairly steep ups and downs around the tunnel, just take your time. Downshift and save your brakes.

Looked like a brand new facility. The kitchen is awesome. The showers are awesome. The toilets are awesome and the community room is nice and comfy. $80 for the camper but being able to wake up and be 2 minutes from the Miter Peak view is worth every penny. Great sites and power boxes. Beautiful spot.

We've stayed at this site over the past few years in its various different guises (the last time we stayed it was more a backpackers which was good too). Its always been fairly pricey but given the view and location - worth it. Well - it just got a whole lot better.
The lodge is now a combination of private swept up cabins by the river - and a whole bunch of powered sites. There's a new campsite facility with kitchen, tv room, showers - all heated for winter, sparkling clean and no timer on the showers! The main building has a bar, restaurant, and cafe accessible to everyone staying there (they even deliver to your campervan)!! The staff are super friendly and helpful -this was the nicest campsite we stayed in during our whole south island trip - thanks Andrea and crew for a great time.

The only campground in Milford Sound but brilliant. Paid $50 for a powered site for 2. The site is lovely in the trees and each site has its own hedge for privacy. We didn't bother with the wifi as we were told is was very slow. This campground had the best shower and toilet facilities ever! They are like an ensuite with a heated towel rail, toilet, shower and washhand basin with plenty of room - outstanding! Also had a good lounge and kitchen area.

Quite expensive but if you can afford it, definitely worth it! Really great facilities for camper vans. Clean and well supplied. Plus you can stay overnight right at Milford Sound and catch one of the early, less crowded boat trips. You can also take a walk along the shore of the Sound in the evening when nobody else is around. That’s priceless!

Quite expensive for the Value, but the only one at the location, but I would rather stay in cascade creek, there you can enjoy the view and its cheaper...
