A beautiful and peaceful rural stay close to rivers and surrounded by mountains.

Peaceful spacious country park set in 28 acres surrounded by mountains and rivers. For those who love to view the night sky, there's no need to worry about town light pollution to drown out the natural wonder of the Aurora Australis and the spectacular milky way.

Enjoy a relaxed farm setting complete with hand reared farm animals for all to enjoy. 3km from Mossburn on SH 97, this is the perfect stop over point approximately half way between Queenstown and Te Anau. Close to fishing rivers and lakes, tramping, new cycle trail and Fiordland. With multiple rivers close by, including…

We can't fault this place. The one thing we absolutely loved was the fact that there are no new arrivals after 10pm so noone is getting woken up with someone showing up at 2am (we had this happen so many times in other campgrounds, makes staying in other places a nightmare).
The grounds themselves are immaculate, this park is obviously cared for with love. The kitchen, showers and toilets are not only clean but plentiful. Even though the kitchen can get crowded at dinner time, you have the option of using the 4 (free to use!) barbecues outside under cover.
The owners/operators, Colleen and Stuart are so welcoming and lovely and we were so happy to meet Andrew, their Labrador because we miss our dog so much and Andrew is a real treat. Surrounding the park are paddocks containing alpacas, cows, sheep and goats. It's so peaceful and everyone who was staying here in the campground seemed to be so respectful of keeping the night time quiet. So unique!
For anyone reading this, help to look after this beautiful place. This place is definitely loved. Thank you so much!!!

This place is just perfect on your way to Milford Sound or when you come back ! Nice atmosphere with the farm and animals around, lot of space for tents, campervans and motorhomes. Toilets, showers and kitchen are really clean as well.

We stayed at the site on our way back from milford sound to Queenstown. When you get there a animal welcoming committee is awaiting you from sheeps over a cute dog to two huge peacocks and alpackas. The site was clean and there are enough clean showers and toilette. There is also a BBQ area and an indoor kitchen. Free wifi(500mb) is included. On arrival we got some snacks for the animals which was also nice when walking around on the camp. Great place especially for kids and animal lovers.
