“Great location and lovely cottage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2014

I used this as my base for the Big easy Mountain Marathon and recommend it for anyone doing an event in the area.

We stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage, which was dated but very comfortable. Spacious and with everything needed for a pleasant stay. Private with a deck and garden plus BBQ. Great views. Definitely worth the price and the staff were very helpful.

The lake is 100m away and the views from the lounge and deck are superb. Would definitely come back and campers will love it as will boaties as there is a ramp onsite. A lovely riverside walk to Albert Town and lots of MTB and running trails right from the site.

Arriving here after a long drive from Queenstown, the staff at the reception was very friendly. The last part of the road is partly gravel, but that did not matter. We had a nice powered site above some long term caravans with a great view. Toilet and showers were clean, but for shower you have to pay (time limited). Just 100 metres down to the water of the lake. From here you can do a nice hike back to town, which is 7km with nice views. Back we took a taxi/van for 25$. Internet (Wifi) with IAC is available! Very dark as you are out of town which give you a great night sky watching possibility!
The dump site is a little bit down to the water and for big campervans little bit hard to reach. All in all a nice place with stunning views.

This is a great place to stay. Just beside the beautiful lake in Wanaka. The camp is well organized and clean with nice facilities. Glen, who runs the camp is very friendly and helpful willing to solve any problem with a smile.
We had an electricity problem in our campervan and Glen helped us quickly and efficiently. We had a wonderful experience - 2 nights, highly recommended!!
Plenty of things to do around the camp and the town.

Beautiful location on the lake and on the Clutha River (which is gorgeous and a walk/ride along here is a must-do).

However, many things about this park were disappointing. Surprised that you had to pay for time-limited hot water for showers. There are also limited cooking facilities - something like 3 stovetops and 2 fridges for hundreds of campers.

I don't think the camp-sites are very well maintained, we were about to set up our tent when we noticed lots of smashed glass on the ground.

Could do better.

We are a family of Wanaka locals who wanted to leave town for Christmas & camp for a few days. The Outlet holiday park is outstanding - great facilities, beautifully appointed sites at v reasonable prices & v friendly & helpful hosts. The place is well cared for and fits in with the native manuka forest whilst capitalising on the stunning views out to Lake Wanaka, the Clutha River and the Wanaka mountains. It was lovely to holiday in our own town and feel we'd really escaped, we will definitely be back. Thank you Glenn and Tracy!

We were initially staying for one night, but finally we stayed 4 because it was really great. The owners are really helpful and enthousiastic, it is obvious that they like what they do for loving. The kitchen and toilets were always clean and the lake is just two minutes walk. Lots of small trees for the tent sites.

We stayed in one of the bush cottages- spotless, comfortable- ideal after our days of hiking and fishing. Wanaka is a must see and outlook is the only place I would ever stay. Can't imagine a better location or a friendlier staff. Remember it is just a cabin room- no frills- but clean and comfy!
