We are visiting Milford Sound in Feb next year and I would love to be camping there instead of staying at a hotel in Te Anau (Milford Lodge is taken). I found a list of nice campsites along the Milford Road at the
I have a couple of questions from the experienced visitors who might have camped here:
- Any recommendations on which campsite affords the better view / experience? The other couple with us with be staying at Te Anau, so I'd prefer to stay as south on this road as possible. Mackay Creek looks good, but that could just be due to the photo there.
- Feb is towards the peak season. Is there a way to book campsites in advance here, or is it walk in only. In case of latter, can you tell me if its safe to assume sites will be available or they are usually booked out?
- Any other suggestions for camping besides these sites?
I'd have loved to do Milford Track and the sites therein, but that will have to wait for next time!
Thanks a ton! As always, sorry if this is a repeat question - couldnt find a similar one among the recent posts.
