“Great facilities”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

Bumpy road to the camp site, our stuff were all on the ground by the time we parked. Location a little off to the main centre than we had expected. But very good facilities such as the kitchen and showers.

Franz Josef Top 10 Holiday Park is located at State Highway 6 and next to Waiho river. The town was named in 1865 after the Austrian emperor Franz Joseph I (1830-1916). You find the town centre at 1.5 kms from the park.

Because of the glacier and the mountains Franz Josef is rather touristic. The small town has several motels & camper parks and a choice of restaurants, tourist shops & adventure organizers including helicopter flights over the glacier.

The park offers cabins, studio units and powered & unpowered sites. We had a powered site with a view of the snowcapped mountains. The park is adequate and quiet. Facilities encompass a reception annex info room, spacious free showers, kitchen, dining area, TV & games room, internet room, spa, BBQ and laundry. All is clean and well maintained. The park roads are gravel and surprisingly full of potholes. Wi-Fi internet is extra.

Staffs were friendly. Considering its location we found the caravan park reasonable value for what it offers and an OK place to stay.

We stayed in Kitchen Cabin in mid April, 2014. We stayed there since we had booked and paid. Otherwise, we could have stayed in different bigger place. The place is dirty. Needed good cleaning. TV is very old. Curtains do not shut properly and some hooks were broken. Although it is a kitchen cabin, you have to ise each appliance one by one as there is not enough space at all. Luckily we had to stay there only one night.

We stayed one night at a powered campervan site. We found the shared facilities clean and comfortable. Facilities were conveniently located. Staff were friendly. Views were great and would definitely return if I visit the area again.

A pleasant tidy top 10, offering no extra's but did the job....
We were given a warm welcome after driving +7hrs over authers pass.... (not what google maps said....)
The rm was pretty basic but did the job with a double bed,bunks and sml kitchen... It was clean and tidy and near the facilities....
The facilities/toilets were mixed,but private... very clean(with a shower and toilet in some)...
AS it was an overnight-er and we were driving onto queenstown next it did the job well enough...
The chap on reception was very helpful and recommended us to a great pub in town....
