Methven Camping Ground
Reviewed 26 October 2012

Stayed here recently and was received well by hosts. Very cheap rates for full facility. I agree with the last 2 reviews on dog poo and no wifi. In fact I had to avoid a dog poo which was in the way of my water hose when filling up. Wifi is present but bad reception even at the amenity block which the host claimed was OK. But really it was not OK. Not much of a view as well but very good for Mt Hutt trips. Nevertheless, the lounge area is pretty interesting. Has table tennis, badminton, books, puzzles, nice warm couches TV, a good kitchen and workable laundry. The place is creatively decorated with recycled items which I think is cool. DVD hire also reasonably priced at $4. They also have free range eggs from their small collection of chicken. campground is huge and easy to navigate as it remains tidy. Not necessarily the best but certainly adequate and better than average based on value and service.

We stayed this park and found the owner to be pleasant and easy going and found a powered camping site relatively easy. It was dark by the time we arrived and walked into town for a great night out at the Blue Pub and returned back the van quite late and frequently walked back and forwards to the toilet. Once the sun rose in the morning we found we had Dog Poo all threw the van and over our shoes and jeans. As we investigated further there where land mines all over the park and at least 5 still in tack within 5 metres of our van. We were disgusted by this and the locals resident trailer park locals once confronted that we left and vowed to never go back. We would however recommend the Abisko Holiday Park.

Room Tip: Do not stay here and drive on to the Abisko Holiday Park

This is a large fairly basic cheap camp site on the edge of the town. There are not many powered sites but plenty of space for camping and a number of motel rooms. Communal facilities are a little basic as are the showers although there is a lot of hot water. In the summer on a good day, the camp site would be pleasant. On a cold wet day it would be hard work. There is no Wifi, there is a grey dump but no black. The town and shops are a long walk away.
