10/10 this has been the best place we've stayed in the south Island! $15.00nzd for both my boyfriend and myself to park up and sleep in our van. Free clean showers and toilets, free WiFi, that even reached us outside in the van... Nice lounge area to sit on couches and tables around a fire with places to charge phones etc and delicious food and drinks to buy served by the awesome staff, definitely worth a stop on your way through Arthur's pass!
Called last minute after being rejected from a camp site elsewhere. They were just closing up but allowed us to camp and settle up in the morning. Really helped us out! Nice spot up in the hills. Clean amenities and awesome bar/cafe
Awesome spot with views along the valley and up to the ski slope. Friendly staff, and hot showers. Worth the short drive, we will definitely be back in winter !
Was an awesome spot, we rung in last minute because of conditions. Julia and her husband were extremely accomodating, despite there being a big group of us they happily fit us in. Couldn’t recommend more! Food was amazing, accommodation was beautiful, toilets were tidy and showers were nice and hot!
Great site in the mountains. Down a 6km maintained gravel road. Only 4 powered spots however. Hosts very kind and served amazing meals. They have a bar and restaurant for food. Bathroom and showers clean. Not a lot of sand flies. Good spot to stop before Christchurch.
Amazing place to stay. We stayed at a powered campervan site. The lounge was great, clean showers and bathroom. Decent internet for its remote location. Very family centric if your traveling with children.
The Motorhome Sites are embedded in mountains. A great atmosphere. Just five kilometers of well-developed gravel road lead to this idyll. The lodge has a very cozy lounge with a view of the breathtaking surroundings. There is free internet and good food. The friendly owners create an absolute feel-good atmosphere. We highly recommend Porters Lodge.
