Had intended staying a couple of nights but decided to move on after the first. For the price it needs to be more than just a great location. Charging for showers is a real let down. One stove in the kitchen didn't seem to work at all, the other two seemed to barley work at all. If you want to... More

I would love to come back here for a longer stay. Everything is well maintained and most importantly clean. You can enjoy walking/jogging,cycling by the lakeside. It's not too far off from I-site and Mt John.

We hired a powered site here in winter, unfortunately with no view of the lake due to the trees. Our children enjoyed the small playground and the ducks that loved their company. We were disappointed that this was the only holiday park we'd encountered in 3 weeks that charged for showers, but an upside was the amenities block was clean... More

We stayed in the motel part of this property for 2 nights. Its the only motel I've stayed where everyone voluntarily parked their cars off to the side (rather than in front of their rooms) so they could all enjoy the gorgeous view of the lake, right from the room. We arrived by chance at the absolute peak of lupin... More

What a beautiful park this was, the view was spectacular and the amenities are great, only downside was that men's toilet/showers were being painted and so hubby had to walk a bit further. walking down to the lake shore first thing in the morning is beautiful, the birds and ducks are abound and seem to have no fear of humans,...

What a beautifull place is lake tekapo. The holiday park is about 50 meters from the beach, spa and you can start a good hike up mount john from there, which I can really recomment. The facilities are avaridge. And the place has a lot of ducks which are not scared of humans when it comes to food.

Nature at its best. Loved it, originally booked a hut but changed to a unit, as worth it. The lake is gorgeous and the stars at night at the good shepherd church are spectacular. as is the sunset at the Good Shephard Church. A Must....Take the drive up Mt John too, well worth the spectacular view. We stayed two nights,... More

We stayed in the small cabins which I loved!!! They are basic but so cute and the setting is just amazing. So quiet and peaceful. Waking up in the morning to the view was just lovely. The staff were really nice and the whole place just felt nice and relaxed. My only negative would be the showers were hot/cold but... More

I stayed in an ensuite cabin. As a tourist hub it was always going to be priced higher than similar accommodation elsewhere. For NZ$125/night I expected a little more. The cabin had a magnificent panoramic view of Lake Tekapo. However, as it has such a great view, other campers would walk past and see staright into the cabin/bed if the... More
