We travelled as a couple and my brother so needed a bit of space - we booked the One Bedroom Motel Unit there and it was exactly as described. Very clean, not to spacious but the bro had his own room (our Bed was in the Living Room) - view towards the mountains over a big paddock and parking under a carport right outside our unit.
We noticed that the other units have been recently renovated - some had decks added and others have the space inside divided differently - they are clearly upgrading the whole park by the looks so it will only get better.
The only not so great thing about our unit/house was the toilet seems to be built for small people - as in skinny.. if you are large - don't try it - or you will have to leave the door open as it is very awkward to close the door while you are in it..(don't worry there is another door from the bathroom to the living area so you don't "flash" anybody)
Staff was very friendly and helpful and the reception area is in my eyes one of the largest I have seen on any caravan park - lots of information about the area - hiking maps the like.
The Park is only about 3-5 min drive from Lake Matheson - well worth a visit if the weather is fine (we where lucky) and one can walk into the village - good if you want to have a beer at the pub and don't drive.
Overall a great place to stay - Fox in general I would prefer over Franz Josef (been to both numerous times) - even if it is just for the fact that the walk to the terminal face is less of a distance and less crowded at Fox..
