This was our first night in our campervan and we found this park very clean with a fairly new shower block and good kitchen facilities. Very close to the springs and the snow tubing park. Beautiful views of the lake from our camper van.

Stayed here while in NZ for a hockey tournament. Our group was split over two different kinds of cabins; the two bedroom (five people) 'park motels' and ensuite cabins. The park motels are absolutely lovely. Still bright and new, and most importantly, very clean. Beds were comfortable - very subjective, yes, but no one complained about them. The bathroom is... More

This was the first holiday park we stayed at during our trip around the South Island. It was also our first time doing a holiday in a camper van so we were open to anything and everything that may occur. Cost for two adults to stay one night in a powered site was $40 plus $2 ea to use the... More

We stopped here on the way to Wanaka from Christchurch. Gorgeous campsite, lovely views over the lake and well placed at the start of a trail up Mt John. Free BBQs, $2 for 10 minute shower. Good facilities including wifi. Very clean and well organised.

We stayed in one of the motel suites. Nothing fancy, good value for price, kitchen was well equipped, but the best part is the view. Don't bother with a restaurant when you can heat up a can of soup and sit in front of the window (the table is there). Do yourself and your neighbors a favor and don't park... More

We stayed here mid September in an en suite cabin. The unit was very clean, beds were comfortable and it had a great shower. We had a fantastic view of the lake from our cabin. The camping ground was quiet near us, even though there were quite a few people staying there. Cabin had small fridge, electric jug, toaster and... More

Located on the shore of Lake Tekapo. Great facilities and very clean. The only negative comment is they say 5 minutes walk to town, it's 15 minutes at a quick pace. Not a problem but it would be better to know before starting. 30 seconds to the lake and stunning views.

Hi Roger G Well that was a bit of a slip up in our welcoming blurb telling you the village was 5 minute's walk. Someone obviously thinks they are a sprinter in reception lol. Sorry about that as it is defiantly a 10 - 15 min walk from reception. Other than that (which I have mentioned to the staff) I'm... More

My partner and I were travelling in a campervan and needed a powered site for the night. The views over the lake and proximity to the hot pools were great however the campsite was very average. The bathroom was modern but they charge you $2 for a hot shower, which I believe should be free considering we had already paid... More

Hi there. Thank you for your feed back on our camp. The small kitchen you were using is in the throws of being refurbished. Its taking a while trying to do it between arrivals. But that's a good problem to have :-) We have just had new plumbing done and a new Rheem instant hot water system added. We have... More

I stayed here at a powered site with my partner in june. Loved the sites, had the one of the best views of our entire stay in New Zealand! We didn't use the kitchen facilities but the showers were good although the only place I have been to that was coin operated but that didn't bother us. Lovely walk into... More

We stayed on a powered site for 2 nights in August. The facilities were satisfactory and clean but tired. The manager/owner was very amenable and even provided a can opener for our use when our Kea camper van did not have one included. It is a short walk to the Tekapo Springs and not too far from the village to... More

Hi ya! Thank you for taking the time to make a comment on our holiday park. It sounds like you were kept busy while here. Although I have said to people that they can walk Mt John at night to see the stars (with a good torch of course) I haven't heard back from anyone who has actually done it... More
