Awesome camping location by the lake although this is about 10 minutes out of the Wanaka township. Some more signs would be useful as the road leading into the campground was gravel and surrounded by construction. Great amenities.

Really nice and comfortable place to stay. We stayed at the weker cabin and it was cosy and warm. Friendly staff with amazing views and days full of adventure. Definitely recommended for a few days stay.

Highly recommended- staff were lovely and knowledgeable about the area. Clean bathrooms and kitchen. Camp sites were private, small trees provided screening between each space which was fantastic you really feel like you're away somewhere special on your own. Gorgeous lake, took our chairs down to have breakfast several times. Bike hire also available. Only 4min drive into town. Bring... More

Really lovely place. Gorgeous scenery, would certainly go there again next time I'm down that way. Can't rate it highly enough .... friendly people running the site, amenities all top quality but the scenery and tranquility steal the show. I will certainly be coming back here.

This campground is perfect when camping with a dog. We chose a tent spot away from other campers with stunning views out over the lake and mountains. The pup loved being so close to the walking tracks, lake and river. I grew up camping in the wild so the untamed aspect of the outlet camp is perfect, imo. The welcome... More

The staff were pleasant, the costs were reasonable and the views were AMAZING! Highly recommend this park. The facilities were clean and easily accessed and the views were FANTASTIC! The kids enjoyed walking by the lake, I enjoyed a wine, and the views.

This park is right next to lake wanaka. Outlet track is a must. From the park, there are 2 options. One is heading toward wanaka town and the other heading toward Albert town. I found the latter is more scenic.

Lake Outlet was the first holiday part that my husband and I stayed in during our camper van trip across the South Island and let me tell you - it set the bar high! After driving down the rutted, dirt road to get to the park (which, by the way, was something I took to be a good sign as... More

We stayed x1 night & arrived after dark. On route to campsite we had to travel on a very dusty, corrugated unpaved road. I have travelled on some unpaved roads but this was a shocker particularly in a campervan. Reception staff explained this road in was not theirs & would hopefully be better when adjacent subdivision was completed. We stayed... More

This camp is a fair way outside Wanaka and takes some finding down a dirt track road, the surface is ok though. This was our first experience of staying in a camper van in a serviced campground in New Zealand, and initially thought about it very positively, however our experience in subsequent parks showed us the standard that was available....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Enjoy a traditional New Zealand camping and campervan experience with spectacular views over Lake Wanaka and the mountains beyond. Although only six kilometres from Lake Wanaka town centre, its secluded setting and natural surroundings give Lake Outlet Holiday Park a feeling of remoteness and tranquility that is second to none. Individual wooden bush cabins complete the accommodation options at Lake Outlet Holiday Park. Sleeping up to four, they are ideal for families or couples. ... more   less
