Its $20 per vehicule just a little square place where you can park your car, toilette and a nice lake to see sunset or sunrise. There are lot of houses overthere.
Beautiful lake side camping, good for a swim . 10$ per adult. Perfect overnight stay
Beautiful area, but not where you'd park your motorhome. Cost is $20 overnight.
Don't bother camping here. Very rocky campsite, and no water.
We are non-self contained so we tried to stay here instead of the Lake McGregor site next-door (which was listed as self contained only at the time). However, we got there and it seemed to be the same site with the Alexandrina side being for long stay caravans and the McGregor side for everyone else. We ended up staying at McGregor - which was great. A bit confusing at first but the McGregor site has toilets and taps and definitely allows non self contained vehicles - or tents!
Great location and very cheap ($5 per person). There are toilets and a sink with a pump tap; however, the toilets are long-drops and you have to take all your rubbish with you upon leaving (this includes your used toilet paper). If that puts you off, this place is not for you. We on the other hand, loved the fact that we went to bed with a beautiful starry night view and woke up to a stunning view of the lake and surrounding mountains. All in all, a decent campsite for the price.
Drove to the site & saw sign saying it was closed for winter.
A sign on the main road, would have been helpful, as this was a long & unnecessary drive.
Beautiful spot, toilets and washing up facilities. Quiet and great veiw.
Although this is a beautiful spot with a great view on the lake, we thought it’s way overpriced as we paid $10 per person (end of November). There are only very smelly long drop toilets without toilet paper and there’s no drinking water.
Toilets were very smelly and only the men's toilet was in use. Very windy. $5 per person so that's good.
Officially there is space for 32 campervans but there were way more here. Other than that it's a really beautiful place to be. You can take a swim in the lake and the view is gorgeous, especially when the sun is setting. In the evening the sky was clear and you could stargaze from the shore. Toilets are very clean but bring your own toilet paper. No tap water but there are sinks with pumps (but water is not suitable for drinking).
Beautiful view of the lake! It was $5 per person and had a clean bathroom and dish washing station.
Lovely little campsite with clean dry toilets next to the lake. No sandflies but lots of ducks;) not many places to pitch the tent so try to arrive early (we were here at 2pm and it was pretty empty but at around 7pm it was quite full). The campsite is only $5 per person!!
This is a really cute little quiet campsite. Keep driving past Lake McGregor when you drive in and it's right at the end. Yes there are some creepy caravans during the quiet season but the toilets are clean and smell nice and the ducks are real cute too. No running water so bring your own. There are shower cubicles but no actual shower so if you have a shower in a sack you can hang them up and use them.
Spooky as we were the only ones amongst run down huts and caravans. Might be better during summer.
Seems to be confusion among reviewers between Lake Alexandrina site and Lake McGregor site. We drove to the end of the road, presumably Lake Alexandrina. A nice quiet litttle camp ground, obviously used by fishermen in season. Long drop toilets were basic & clean, with cleaning materials supplied. For $10 for two it was great place to stay.
The campsite would be wonderful if not for the atmosphere of desolated caravans and dirty facilities. I would love to pay a bit more if the facilities and the spots would be upgraded since the location is stunning and there are not many alternatives around Lake Tekapo
Really odd site. There are around 8 permanent caravans staying there. Other caravans are unattended and they look abandoned.
It's located between lake Alexandria and Lake Mc Gregor.
Toilets really dirty.
The spot is nice and quiet but just for one night.
Close to the road access for Mt John's Observatory. At 9am, when they open the Cafe you can use a really clean toilets.
Nice and quiet, not so many people, no money to pay, toilets.
It is not the best you can find but it is full of friendly ducks!
Beautiful views but probably the worst toilet ever (dirty, like hell).
A beautiful spot with good toilets. The highlight of this spot is definately the scenery.
It is very close to Tekapo Lake. Dirty toilets but very nice place.
Odd little spot...looked like a "gypsy" park, but nice little place by the lake. Not actually on lake Alexandrina, but lake macgregor, so were a bit confused looking for this spot..but it was late and very dark to be fair. For $5pp you can't complain. Short drive to st.johns observatory and tekapo

Overpriced and crowded when we were there. Head further along the lakeside going north and you will find Lake McGregor campsite; McGregor is a basic campsite, lots of space when we were there and a small lake in which to swim. Doesn't feature as a separate campsite in NZ Camping, but it was there. Low score for Alexandrina purely based on cost which at $20 for two of us which we felt was a lot for sitting in a parking lot with views of the backs of sheds in a shanty town. Loos were a modern form of the composting DOC type, but ensure you have your own paper
Simple, a dream.
you are right the outlet is $5 a night but the south end is a better place to go, but don't go to the campground (the rip off hutholders want $20 a nite) go round the side of lake and go to toilets at campground- don't poo in bush!!
My tribe got land round side OK to camp for free bro!!

Good location, cheap but no toilet paper. It is more a 'bush camp' but it was really nice.
One of the best place we staid in 3 weeks
Nice local people, great area, calm and no problem to park our van close to the river.
Toilets simple but enough
Shower was new but not working
very low price (5$ per adult)
Our favourite place to camp in Mackenzie Region. Quiet and tranquil with only a few locals there on weekends in summer. Lots of bugs around when the weather is warm so cover up. But the views are worth it.
