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.

Much better than the Riverside in Murchison - friendly people, nice layout, quieter.

A powered site for 2 people costs $34. Friendly and clean campground. Enough showers and toilets. According to note, the shower only runs for 7 minutes. We felt much shorter (more 3 minutes). Good cost / benefit ratio.

Great atmosphere, a real sense of community here. Really nice views. Camp manager was very kind. Well equipped kitchen, good and clean bathrooms although there were only 2 showers available (the only reason it's not a 10). Facilities to do laundry as well!

A superb campsite and really well run. All the facilities are keep really clean and lots of hot water from a log burner for showers and washing up. They sell fresh eggs and some home grown veggies too. Right next to the Buller River it's a beautiful campground but do be aware there are a few sand flies but they're all over this area. Great kitchen facilities and a hot water dispenser is available to make hot drinks, a nice touch. Enjoyed it so much we stayed another night. Stayed 28/12/16

We stayed overnight 18th May in our motorhome in this lovely new and well-planned park. We loved the location right beside the Buller River, and next to cow paddocks, and we were welcomed warmly by the friendly owner Karen.

The facilities are very well designed, spacious, with modern bright colours, and even under-floor heating! We had a wonderful relaxing evening in the kitchen/dining/lounge area, sitting by the slow-combustion fire chatting with Karen and other guests.

We will certainly be back here on future trips. 10/10!!!

It was a perfect place to stay to see Nelson Lake National Park! The lady was so nice, explained everything to us and even gave us some toast bread the next morning because we forgot to buy breakfast. Thank you so much!

This was by far the best camp in our 5-weeks tour of the South Island. The site is beautiful, not very far from the road but it was not a problem. The amenities are great, the hostess is very friendly and helpful. Amazing place! A must!

Really clean and well working facilities. $5 for wifi - which I can't even find in the shared kitchen, although on the campsite it seems to be good - seems a bit much to me. Rest is fine. The fact that a powered and and unpowered site don't differ in pricing seems not really fair to me.
