Jackson's retreat was by far our favorite camp ground in the row weeks we spent driving around NZ. The initial welcome was extremely warm and all of the many features of the park were explained. We both loved the nature walk to the water fall and glow worms. The setting is just beautiful. The grounds have a real personality, we... More

We stayed in their one and only two story apartment. 2 families 5 adults and 4 children. It was just wonderful we stayed for only one night but we all wished it was a longer stay. Next time we will be staying for a bit longer to give us time to do more of their beautiful walks. I would recommend... More

Of the eight fine campgrounds that we stayed at during our South Island holiday, Jackson's Retreat was by far the best, friendliest, most helpful, and most scenic. In the interest of brevity I can only second the other positive comments on Trip Advisor. We enjoyed looking across the valley to watch the NZ rail trains going back and forth over... More

We stayed at quite a few "TOP10" sites in New Zealand, this wasn't one, but it should be renamed "TOP1". Very quiet, good space between the powered sites, very, very friendly and helpful owner. All in all the best campsite we stayed at in NZ.

We stayed here for one night in our camper. The facilities are spotlessly clean - there is a large kitchen/lounge area and the shower block was one of the best we experienced during our month travelling. It was just a shame it rained solidly while we were there as this meant we were less inclined to explore the beautiful surroundings!

Clean and spacious kitchen, comfortable lounge chairs. A number of tables and chairs and a number of hot plates and sinks to assist and allow for easy access with no waiting. The additional of a number of little touches made the park a special place to stay - several barns to allow campers and vans to stay undercover, soap, hand... More

Jackson's Retreat was a welcome stop during our tour of South Island in a motor home. The camp is very well set out with excellent facilities. We were made very welcome by Bevan, the genial host of Jackson's. The walk up to to the small waterfall is worth it, and we enjoyed our stay there,and even booked to stop over... More

The owners are lovely and will help with anything, the site is the best kept best designed cleanest campsite ever, the bathrooms are amazing the showers are the best ever. The setting is perfect and there is a little walk to see glow worms (really easy to find them but the short walk to them may not be for everyone... More
