Spent a night here mid Aug, and highly recommend! Out of all the places we stayed in South Island this one was the cleanest ablutions, best kitchen, great fireplace and fantastic views. The Sutherland's have really put a lot of work into this resort and it shows! For anyone in the area do pop in for a Night or three,... More

Picturesque location, friendly owners, affordable rates and awesomely clean facilities! By far the best/cleanest shower and toilet facilities we saw in NZ (and a lot of them are good) The common room is great, spacious and has amazing views of the mountains. We only spent a night but this would be the place to stay if you are exploring Greymouth/Hokitika/Arthur's... More

In 2011 we stumbled on this place after a long drive and decided to take a break. We loved it so much we made sure we came back on our next trip. Jacksons is the most comfortable place we've stayed in New Zealand. It's clean and modern but cosy and very quiet. The scenery is amazing and the glowworms in... More

We couldn't make it to greymouth from christchruch so we decided to stay over at jackson's. It was our first night and we're trying to get used to camping with a campervan. Jackson's offers SUPERRRRRRR clean and awesome facilities (kitchen, gas bbq & toilet) super awesome place to stargaze at night and damn good scenery when you wake up.

We stayed here after a long journey from Mt Cook and arrived very late. At first glimpse we just about turned away as there were no lights and it did not look inviting. My husband went to the office and came back and said this is a little gem. We looked around and wow couldn't wait to morning to real... More

My partner and I stayed at Jacksons for two nights in November 2013, and absolutely loved it. Everything was first class - the staff were very friendly and helpful (as all Kiwi's appear to be!), the grounds and buildings were beautiful and perfectly maintained, and the location... wow. Arthur's Pass is just magnificent. Each park for a motorhome/caravan was beautifully... More

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
