“Good location and facilities”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2011

Pretty much standard cost for campervan parks in major destinations, and we actually thought the facilities were pretty good. It rained most of the time we were in Te Anau and in that regard the lounge area and communal kitchen were a major positive - it was nice to have a dry, sheltered spot in which to eat, relax and read up on coming things we'd do.

I thought the facilities were quite well kept, the bathrooms of good standard and the kitchens large enough to cope with guest numbers. We took a campsite up the back of the campground and it was definitely quieter away from the road and larger crowds closer to the lake.

The lake is right across the road and the Dept of Conservation office is about 3min walk from here, so it's easy to quickly head over if you're seeking updates on track/road conditions etc.

All up, I thought it was a pretty good option for staying somewhere with a tent.

I'm really surprised by the negative reviews about this holiday park and think that your experience of it is very influenced by what accommodation you choose there and what time of year you go. We stayed in a Lakeview Tourist Flat for two nights at a quiet time of year and had no problems at all. The view was fantastic, as long as you ignored the road in front of you but thankfully it was a very quiet one. The Flat was very spacious and adequately equipped. My kids enjoyed the playground and there was plenty of room to kick a ball around, although not as many facilites as other holiday parks we stayed in. Good wifi.

we stayed in 2008, there was not an option in the designated fields to say when we stayed as it only had from 2010. We stayed in winter and believed it was a very good place to stay, clean, tidy and the staff were friendly. maybe that has all changed. i am going back in 2011 (July) and will stay there again. I did stay in a camper van but found all the amenties very clean. i come from Australia and the van parks in NZ are 10 times better than what you will see in OZ. I think this place has the best view in Te Anau as a van park if you get there early

we stayed with a campervan. the showershad fungus everywhere and the hot water went cold all the time and they got flooded so the water of al the showers make this pool on your feet, not quite nice as everyones dirt is at your feet!!!!. not really hygeneic for children!!!
lots of teenage travelling groups so at night it ist quiet, not really good sleep either!!
drunk teenagers screaming at night, nobody controlling at night, vomit everywhere until next late morning.
TIP: DO NOT STAY HERE WITH CHILDREN!!!!

we where 2 german girls travelling and the reception staff seemed bothered by our presence and we didnt receive the help we needed to move around the area!!!
it was really noisy at night and dirty! no cutlery or crockery clean in the kitchens.
the showers were also a problem, the water turned hot and cold al of a sudden.
i guess we understood why they have the cheapest price! BAD SERVICE!!!!

The front desk clerk allowed us to view the rooms before making a decision. We chose a lakeview room only for the view. The rooms are basic and outdated. There was a fan in the room which we used to help mask the traffic noise. For basic accomodations, this is a good option. We paid NZ $99 for our room.

Most staffs are nice but the manager is extremely rude(I guess it's the same one the other lady who got bedbug bite were talking about). He's one of the rudest person we faced in NZ. (not mentioning he's working in the hotel service). I will never step into this place again.
