“Off season, lakeside peace and quiet”
Reviewed 20 April 2013

we paid a post-Easter visit to this full service campsite on the shores of Lake Wanaka. Very warm welcome from Glenn who offered us a pitch with nobody nearby. Services close enough and very clean. I was doubtful about the hand-towels in the washroom until I noticed that they were changed daily!

Our level pitch was set into a hillside dotted with trees and shrubs, so very private. Trails and MTB trails nearby, Wanaka itself a short drive.

Room Tip: Off season: take your pick between front row (maybe busier) or set back (utterly private).

I stayed there in April 2013, and was really pleased to see that my pitch had a wonderful view on the lake and everything (with the sun setting, it was awesome). Then I was really not pleased to see that you needed $1 coins for the showers ($1 = 5 minutes).
It is located at the end of a gravel road (10-15 mins off the main road).

We stayed at this campsite whilst paying Lake Wanaka a visit. The site is a little bit off the beaten track and away from Wanaka, but once here you get a warm welcome and amazing lake views. There were probably only one or two other campites that we stayed at whilst in NZ which could match this site for the views.

The facilities here are good with the toilets, showers and kitchen areas all being clean and tidy. The showers are pay as you use, but unless you like a really long wash down this isn't going to cost you a fortune. The only slight downside is that the facilities can be a bit of a walk from some of the pitches and it was a bit hard to see your way at night.

We'd recommend this site if you're paying Wanaka a visit and are looking for a site with good facilities and some stunning views.

Booked this one online thinking we could easily ride/walk back into town but that's not the case. It's a great location, and the facilities were adequate. Although you had to pay for showers.
Nice walk along Clutha river.

We stayed at the Lake Outlet Holiday Park for one night on a tour of the South Island in November 2012.
The staff were incredibly friendly, the camper van lot had the most astonishing views and the shower/kitchen block was possibly the best one we encountered on our two week holiday. There were even heaters above the showers so that in the morning you can have a comfortably warm shower, no matter the weather!
From the beautiful view of the lake to the magical walk along the river (recommended if you have a spare hour or so) we decided this was our favourite holiday park on the South Island. Don't be put off by its remote location, the gravel road almost had us turn back in confusion. This place is worth the visit alone, I wish we'd had more time to spend here, we certainly will be doing so in the future.

Room Tip: Choose one of the higher plots for a campervan to get the best view across the lake.

We stayed only one night, we were on a short weekend away and we found this beautiful camp site just searching on the web. Family friendly, safe, clean, amazing views from our tent site, the best hot shower I ever had in a camp ground! The lady who was at the reception was very helpful, gave us a lovely spot to set our tent and al the info about facilities. Definately we'll camp here again soon!

Lake Outlet camp ground has some of the most beautiful views in the world. Great spacious campsites and spotlessly clean bathrooms and kitchen. Fantastic running/biking track access to Wanaka, Albert Town and further. We stay here regularly even though we live only 45 minutes away and highly recommend it. You can bring your dog too if you book in advance and keep him on a lead.
