Wouldn’t go for a campsite here. Very basic and overpriced. You’re basically on a parking lot with bare WiFi and other amenities.

Expensive for camping $25 (at the beginning they said $20 and the boss came and said no...its $25) the place to camp is a 5 metre piece of land next to the car park. It doesn't come whit any breakfast or soup like other reviews...there is hot showers and wifi. The kitchen was dirty. We went to the bar for a drink and the boss treats the staff really bad, shouting at them. (It was a ripoff).

Stayed here because the other two van parks were full. They do have a couple of powered sites, but they are gravel, not grass. It’s basically a backpackers hostel, where they let you camp in the car park. Fine for a one-night stay. Conveniently located in the town centre. Spa is a nice bonus.

This place has potential, but I think $20 for a spot of grass next to the parking lot is too expensive. I could hear all the people going in and out of the bar and late at night and group of what seems to be employees of the bar were just hanging out outside talking really loud. I couldn't get much sleep because of all the noise.
I didn't hate the place, but certainly not worth $20. Sorry.

It's a nice place to stay. You go into the bar and just ask to stay there. It's $20 per person, but worth the money. You can use the facilities of the hostel above the bar. In the evening you get a free soup, it's not the world best soup but quite nice. There is free unlimited wifi that also works when you are in your car. In the morning is a free breakfast.
The staffs are really nice. And you can also use the hot pool.
The bar gets quite busy in the evening but it's not that noisy or annoying.
It's a good place if you want to go to Lake Matheson in the morning.

We only stayed there for one night in a tent but the facilities and staff were really nice. Consider that they only have 3 sites for tents next to the parking lot. Nice big kitchen and lounge as well as in the price of $20 there is a warm soup in the evening and a small breakfast included. In addition they do have a hot pool for free and a really good WiFi connection if there are not too many people using it. We would definitely would stay there again.
