We stayed on our way from Queenstown to the glaciers and had our first meeting with the dreaded sandflies....not the fault of the campsite...but please be prepared!
The site is really a car park, but the communal kitchen and sitting area makes up for it. Big room, encourages conversation...good cooking facilities.
Receptionist at the time from Wales where we come from very friendly! We even helped them cook a crayfish which their boss had given them.
Everything clean, could just do with firmer locks on the doors in the ladies area....maybe a little too relaxed.
