The 100% Locally owned Franz Josef Campervan Park is located right in the centre of Franz Josef allowing you to park up your Campervan and walk to the local shops, restaurants and activities. It offers modern ensuite style bathrooms with a high shower to guest ratio. It is one of the cheapest Campervan Sites in Franz Josef but still offers free limited WiFi, hot showers and the best location - from your site you will be able to see snow capped mountains and the Croz Glacier. Some sites are set against native forest but these tend to go first.

Wasn't a fan of this site. It's just a gravel car park and its expensive. Wifi doesn't reach the lounge. The lounge is a concrete floored room with some tatty sofas. The bathrooms look like they're from the 80s. It's impossible to wash your face over the sink which means the floor gets soaked.

Gravel car park with portaloos.
Not the best site in NZ.
Helicopters buzzing around all day.
I should have done my homework and read other reviews. 👎

We were hesitant with the prior reviews but thoroughly enjoyed this spot. Check in was just signing the paper (easy as) and there were clean, well built shower and toilet block with beautiful hot showers. There were 3 showers each in male and female part and a family room as well. Camping spots are around the site with trees providing some separation. Was worth the extra few dollars to the other DOC sites in the area. There were BBQ’s and cleaning stations as well as drinking water around. Wifi was only in certain parts. More than fine for what we wanted. $15 per person per night.

Hot showers (3) and toilets. Also good working free wifi!
But there is only 1 cooking spot in the ‘kitchen’.
But it’s way to expansive! (42$ for 2 people)
But it’s the cheapest in franz josef so what else can you do

Amazing view of snow capped mountains from the campervan site! Easy to find this campervan site and stayed here for 2 nights. Nearby Franz Josef glacier and 30 mins to Fox Glacier. Clean toilets and unlimited hot showers, safe and quiet camp site. Worth the money paid for full facilities site with a bbq pit! Love this campervan site and will definitely recommend it to anyone coming to visit Franz Josef and Fox Glacier.

This was one of the worst campsites we’ve ever been to! Basically just a car park with a few portaloos that look like they haven’t been cleaned in months.
Compared to other campgrounds this was very expensive for what you get, not at all value for money. Our spot was close to the road at right behind a noisy restaurant rubbish exit, not ideal!

The park really is only a small gravel parking lot but the showers were free, untimed and had great pressure. Our big rating comes because the staff were fantastic. We had motorhome problems and they came to help, let us use their phone and stayed open later in the office to accommodate. They even gave us a 10% off meal voucher to help. Lovely people!
