Stayed here on a powered site in our camper van. lovely site next to the lake with obviously great views, Staff were friendly and very helpful. We had a few issues and Gavin came and helped us out. Great showers at $2 for 7 minutes and a lovely kitchen area.

First, start with the bad..... DO NOT expect to cook anything on the BBQ if you're only staying for a night. All 4 of them are pathetic, took 2 hours (no joke!) to cook 4 sausages. Other tourists had the same issue. They need upgrading, and better wind shields. Period. Showers were coin operated, $2/10min, would be OK if this...

We stayed here on a really busy weekend and it was great. The worse part was trying to get the tent pegs in the stoney ground! In my view, if you want a site with a view then you will be exposed to the wind, whilst there are other sites more protected. The facilities were excellent. The kitchens were quite...

Great position, but very noisey from two perspectives. The holiday park is in a prime position on the edge of this beautiful blue lake, nestled in pines tress. The facilities are very good. We camped in a tent and asked for a powered site. Most powered sites are really only suitable for vehicles as they are heavy shingle based and...

The location was good, it was just in front of the lake. You could just walk down and enjoy the view. you could also cook yourself a meal or bbq and eat all with a lake view. They give your cabin a basketfull of utensils so you';; have to look after it but it is more than adequate. There is...

The view of Lake Tekapo is spectacular from some points at this location, however they are limited. We booked a Glamping tent and expected to have a beautiful spot as the term 'glamping' would suggest. However, the tents are located at the dumping station and the entrance faces another tent. There is not enough parking space for all tents, so...

Very nice view of Lake Tekapo. Very poor wifi service only can use at outside of the door. Good location where just few mins drive to the Stepherd Church and if you wanted to view the gazing stars must go to the church or darker area.

I booked into the accommodation in early September for the busy week after New Years. In the booking, which was paid for, I mentioned that we wanted a powered site with direct lake views. Upon arrival to the park, check in was like cattle call, the rude and obviously distressed at her job receptionist, made me pay for the accommodation...

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...
