We are closed from the start of May to mid September.

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, hunting, tramping, new cycle trail and Fiordland. With multiple rivers close by, including the…

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.

Best campground of our South Island trip. It is so peaceful and relaxing. We absolutely loved our stay and wish all the private campgrounds were of this standard. Bathrooms and facilities were immaculate. Kids loved meeting all the animals and having a run around. Thank you.

Just the perfect place for an overnight stop off. Cabins clean and tidy and just what I needed for a quick stop off grounds well laid out and I am looking forward to returning for a much longer stay so as to experience the world class trout fishery that is available in the region

Spectacular in every way. Easily the best campground we have stayed in during our 2 months in the south island.
Clean, tidy, beautifully looked after. The animals are a treat, especially Andrew. Keep up the great work!

One of our favorite camp spots of our week long journey! Beautiful spacious grounds and big restroom facilities. The highlight for us was all of the animals - the owner gave us food to feed the sheep, alpaca and goats. On the grounds they have friendly chickens and peacocks. We had such a great time feeding them and watching them, while hanging out at our wonderful campsite.

Great place to stay! Lots of space, clean and good facilities and plenty of animals/pets! But the best is the owner; super friendly and very willing to share insights regarding the surroundings, life on the farm and all kinds of other stuff!

This campground is located in a lovely rural place and we really liked it. We considered staying there again on the way back from Milford. We had plenty of space. Stuart and Colleen gave a friendly welcome and the campground was clean and well run. The kids were given food pellets for the alpacas, sheep and goat and enjoyed meeting the animals. It was great there was a clothesline and with the local breeze, things dried quickly. Our only wish was that the cooking was quicker on the electric hot plate.
