This was the best Park we stayed in on North or South Island. Location is stunning and staff and facilities top notch. It’s not in town (which is why it’s so nice) but only a short drive away you can find really good dinner and a phenomenal breakfast (try the banana and bacon pancake stack) at the Rivers Cafe.

We really enjoyed our overnight stay. The owner is very friendly. The facilities are clean and looked new. Our boys also had lots of fun playing with the resident Border Collie. :) We can highly recommend this campsite as a sleepover.

The bugs, argh the bugs! I’m sure it’s just the time of year and/or this part of the country but dive bombing bumble bees and sandflies do get frustrating. However they do have a meshed-in porch off the kitchen for bug free dining. Bugs aside, the facilities are wonderful, as are the hosts. Lots of room to pitch your tent and level private sections for campervans.

Buy your vegetables from her garden. They were delectable! Friendly, warm and helpful service. Same price for powered and unpowered sites. Large area to camp but limited shade from trees. Good kitchen facilities. Bathroom would benefit from a bit more ventilation. Showers are on a 7-min timer but it is free. Dip in the river was an experience to remember (especially fighting those sandflies on the way back).

As good as it gets! Very clean and all of the needed facilities were there. This was our first camping since the pick-up of our motorhome in Christchurch on our way to Abel Tasman. The detour due to the earthquake highway works drove us through this place and it was perfect. A shame to have this as a basic :)

We stayed at this great park last night as a halfway spot between Blenheim and Hamner Springs. Super clean amenities, great host, stunning location. Thoroughly recommend. Thanks for the laughs Karen!

By far the best place we have stayed on our trip so far! The lady who served us was super friendly and welcoming. The grounds are beautiful, facilities clean and new, nice level powered sites and we felt totally safe here. I wish all camp sites were like this. It’s a great halfway point between the north and West Coast, highly recommend!

One of our favourite powered sites during our South Island trip. Karen was welcoming and was informative (of the places we were thinking of heading to next), and showed us around the site and was thoughtful enough to give us the code for the disabled toilet for our littlies and chose a site that was right next to the footpath - so no walking on wet grass! Loved the BBQ, the cooking equipment/utensils, teatowels(!) and drying racks(!!) available in the common amenities block. The toilets were clean and colourful - the girls came back remarking that there was music in the toilets and the color in the block. Lovely walk down to the river and amazingly peaceful! Will definitely stay here again if we are in the Murchison area. Thanks Karen!

I could not be more happy with my stay at Murchison. The hosts were friendly but unobtrusive and the park was clean, well appointed and homely. The facilities were spotless and the lovely owner even looked after my kayak on a day when I was city bound. I will certainly be coming again and staying right here beside the Buller River is what cn only be described as paradise. Well recommended!!!!

What a beautiful campsite! Facilities are very clean and welcoming with fire going in the kitchen. There is a river where in summer you can go swimming. Karen, the owner, is lovely with great advice about places to see and visit.

After 1.5 weeks in NZ we can confirm it's a good place to be. We have arrived around 6pm. It was not crowded. Luckily no sandflies either. Very friendly host, nice and tidy kitchen & bathroom. In the kitchen/TV room there is a nice fire place for cold days. The camper sites are kind of private cause separation by hedges/bush. We fully can recommend this camp site.

We just completed a 3 week camping trip on the south island of New Zealand. Murchison Motor Park was THE BEST campground we stayed in. Everything was perfect, from the private sites, to the shared herbs and veges, to the walk by the river. Their community kitchen was nicely supplied and everything was spotless. Wonderful bathrooms and showers. I highly recommend staying here if you are in the area!

This is not in Murchison, so don't give up hope if you are coming from the west! Friendly welcome, nice pitches with lovely views. Immaculate facilities. Not troubled by sandflies or wasps whilst we were there. A very relaxing experience.
