This time it had a tennis court! Owners are lovely, the location is great and the grounds are well maintained. Good pricing! We pitched a tent for a few days and made the camp grounds our base. We could drive to the water fall, play tennis and just relax and enjoy the outdoors.

We stayed at Methven camping ground for about 7 weeks whilst we were skiing at Mt Hutt. We liked it so much we just kept extending our stay! We were in one of the cabins with a kitchenette. It was great for cooking meals and relaxing after a days skiing. Our cabin had a great deck we could sit out... More

Stayed there for 6 nights, the owner is very nice and cool guy. In general, we are very happy with the place, but my index finger was pricked twice by a nail under the bathroom handle. I think the owner needs to fix the small nail tip protruding from the door. The shower water is very hot, it is very... More

We called in here in our motorhome & found ourselves a powered site as instructed by the fellow, who was busy doing other things - & that's fine, we were to catch up with him later & check-in officially etc. A quick look around revealed some nice grassy areas & a generally pleasant looking campground, but after spending a few...

On a camping trip with 3 kids, headed to the cabins here for a respite from cold wet weather, and we loved it. When the sun came out we could sit on the deck and see the mountains. Kids loved the pool table, which was in a big lounge, games room area. Had so much more character than a top... More

We read a few bad reviews about this place about dog poo and rude mark....but totally opposite. We found a friendly mark well kept park and quirky games room. It was like stepping back in time but nice. ...it felt homely and family friendly loved sitting in the warm lounges with the wood fired fireplace on max....cause it was cold...... More

The dogs there are were well behaved (funny to have a little white dog peeking under the toilet door :) ) but yeah need to watch where you walk which is a shame. large games room, tv room, good kitchen. 50c showers,...

I did not find the campground littered with dog poo as per previous reviewer, the facilities were clean and the grounds very tidy. The opwners are very friendly and laid back, nothing was a problem. Only negative is they ahve coin operated showers. The best thing about Methven Camping Ground was we could take our dog with us. He loves... More
