“best campsite in southern island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Little but exellent campsite near the town. Happy to finally find a place with fast and free wifi! We stayed warm in the hot pools and sauna and watched a great new sealand movie also for free!
Surely the best campsite in the southern island (and we saw a lot!).

Superb campsite - we'd have stayed longer if we could. Free spa and sauna. Free wi-fi (a rarity on the islands!). Huge Sky TV, massive log fire, fantastic cooking facilities. All reasonably priced - $38 for a powered site for 2 people; far, far better than the many Top 10 parks around and much better. Can't recommend highly enough.

Hi Sparky Rob,
I am very happy that our winter warmers pleased you seeing you were brave enough to risk an un-powered site in our winter! :) The log fire sure is popular, safe travels

We found this motel, which is part of the Caravan Park to be well located, out of town, but not too far, the view from the room was wonderful and everything you needed to be self sufficient was supplied in the room. Big bathroom, quiet location. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly

My partner and I stayed three nights at the Aspiring Campervan Park recommended by the Wanaka I-Site. We needed to have a rest after driving from Westport in the north of the South Island.
Everything was just perfect, The site we had was very well located nice view, close to the facilities. The Lounge was great with a REAL Sky-Tv with 40 channels, an 24-hour Internet voucher given during the check-in. Facilities were very clean and the free spa was a real pleasure. Staff was friendly, even if it was Queen's birthday and low season.

Moreover, the little town of Wanaka is a charming place if you need to escape from the crazy Queenstown or if you need to have a rest after travelling for a while.
Definitely, If we pass through Wanaka, we will come back.

Hi guys,
Thank you for your lovely comments- sometimes it is nice to be in Wanaka when its not so busy this means we can spend more time chatting to our guests- hopefully spending a day or two with us meant that you could re-charge your batteries for more travelling!

Hi 25 holidays,
I am glad that you and the kids could relax and unwind- the playground still seems to be popular even when it is cold outside! :)

We absolutely enjoyed a one night stay with our camper van. The grounds are very nice, the kitchen/living room area offers a wonderful view and is really cosy (one of the best we saw at a camper van park while traveling around the South Island). The bathrooms were also really good and clean. On top of that they offer a lot of extras like free Wi-Fi and indoor hot tubs. The location is a bit further away from the centre but they even offer a shuttle that takes you there. We highly recommend this camper van park!

Very friendly. Good position. Excellent facilities [including free internet]. They even had fresh herbs growing to use in your cooking. The owner came round to see if there was anything they could be doing better.
Would definitely go back if in the area again.
