We stayed here for the first two nights of our trip to the south island. The lake was stunning - seriously more beautiful than the pictures. When I booked the accommodation our only option was a family glamping tent - it is an extremely popular park. The glamping tent had a fantastic set up with everything we needed - clean...

Beautiful spot by the lake, we had booked for two camper vans by the lake, they were unable to accommodate us next to each other, despite there being empty places together! Nice facilities although had to try two BBQ's as first did not work. Good position for the Hot Springs.

We stayed one night in a cabin en route from Christchurch to Dunedin. We all wished we had longer to pause and enjoy this spot. For a colossus park the cabin was really well appointed. Really roomy for 5 of us with everything we needed and probably the best view we'll have all trip!

We only stayed here for one night which was not enough! The location is very nice, the campground has perfect amenities except for the unisex toilets and showers which got dirty and smelly! Would definitely recommend this to everyone, because lake tekapo is amazing!

I thought this would be the park I liked the least during our trip but it ended up being one of my favorites. We were in a powered site and in the first row over looking the lake which was an incredible spot. My kids loved the playground, esp the sand pit and enjoyed the ducks and hares. The park...

The site is right on the edge of the Lake and a short walk from town. Reception were friendly and very helpful. The site has two facilities blocks ~ one was very modern, clean and fab, the other whilst being clean was much older and not as nice to use. Whilst we were there they were having problems with the...

We camped here for a night and looked right out over lake tekapo. Couldn't ask for a better location. The lady who checked us in was lovely and helpful even though you could tell she was super busy. The showers are nice even though you have to pay to use them. They have a nice bbq/picnic area to use that...

We were in a camper van. Had a site with a perfect view. Bathrooms, shower, kitchen clean. Reception staff friendly. Dryers not very hot. Stunning on a sunny day with the fields of lupines. Wish we had known about the Tekapo hot pools right next door.
