Where to Sleep in campervan at Franz Joseph

I am having a difficult time finding campsite options for the glacier - or near the glacier. We will be driving down from the pancake rocks area and would like to stay for two nites before venturing further. Ideas are really appreciated!

Franz Josef Top 10 Holiday Park and Rainforest Holiday Park are the two largest commercial parks. Others can be found here:

A bit further out of town is the DoC campground at Lake Mapourika -the Otto/Macdonalds campsite. Lovely spot.

I agree that Lake Mapourika campground is outstanding. The lake side, rather than the river side. Toilets, water supply, and a lovely situation. The beach there is also probably the best place in the area for a safe swim in natural water (DON'T swim in the sea!).
