“Fantastic family holiday park.”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

This holiday park had extremely spacious and clean facilities. The shower facilities were the largest that I had encountered all holidays. Lovely open spaces in the park and a great kids play area.
The staff made us feel very welcome on check-in and the prices were very reasonable.

Basic cabin:
Plenty of space in the basic cabins which was good for us as we got soaking wet going up the glaciers twice. Hot cabin dried the clothes nicely as we went for dinner down the road at one of the local bars. Can comment on the site or the kitchens as we spent such little time on site.

We had stayed the previous night in the top 10 at frank Josef and enjoyed it so much we signed up for membership and another night. We drove to fox glacier which isn't a long drive but a lot windier than expected, we wished there was a top 10 park in fox but there was no listing on the directory. On our way to lake Matheson we saw the top 10 signs and ended up "swapping" our night over to fox so we didn't have to do the drive again.

The facilities all seemed brand new, it was quiet so we had our choice of sites which was awesome. Loved that the powered sites were on gravel and that we had an outdoor table to sit outside in the sun and admire the peaceful surroundings. The BBQ facilities were fantastic and covered with plenty of table space. Great playground to play in and good layout of the campsite. The kitchen facilities were large and spotless and bathroom facilities were amazing. Large shower rooms and there was the added bonus of a spacious family bathroom. Unfortunately it was occupied in the morning for a long period of time with a family of four primary school kids. As we had an 8 month old baby I ended up having to sneak my husband into the women's bathroom so he could help me shower our baby in there! That was the only downside but completely out of the park's control - I can't think of a solution for that one.

We absolutely loved fox glacier and this was mainly due to our great accommodation. We drove down to lake Matheson, on the same road, for the walk and then hit the cafe for breakfast in the morning. Also drove to gillespies beach which is a substantial drive - watch out for the sand flies! Highly recommend fox top 10, a lot of the other sites we stayed in after paled in comparison.

Stayed here for two nights on a Powered Site while we completed our Day Trek of the Fox Glacier.

The site is only a five minute walk from the main town strip and all the tour bases for the Glacier tour. If you are feeling adventureous (which we were) it's about a 45 minute walk to Lake Matheson - one of the stunning mirror lakes.

Lovely staff, more than happy to help when we arrived. Even printed out documents for us free of charge. They provide you with a detailed map of the area and suggestions of all th best walks and tours - the Holiday park also provide you with audio guides for many of the walks.

The Park itself is in a stunning location, surrounded by moutain views and beautiful greenery. I think it was one of the most picturesque parks we stayed on. The powered sites are on gravel path and there are plenty picnic benches nearby for lunching/breakfast.

The facilities are well maintained are spotless. We did not use the kitchen or sitting room, so are unable to comment, but the showers and toilets were flawless.

Lovely campsite, would definitely recommend.

We use this place as a camp. This Holiday Park is a large and well-kept, with big kitchens (very little equipment, you have to use all your own equipment) and big TV rooms (but not comfortable). Shared toilets are clean. Place for tents was a bit wet, But the best of all were spectacular mountains views.

This was our second stop on our holiday around the South Island. The travel agent booked us into this one and overall we were happy with the facilities and accommodation. It was a bit further to walk than I thought it was going to be but as we only stayed 2 nights we only had to do the walk up to the main street 3-4 times. The cabin itself was warm, comfortable and clean. My teenagers had their own room which was nice. Handy kitchen facilities to cook up some breakfast and the washing machines and dryers were also handy to use. On our final day, one of the staff very kindly drove us up to the bus stop as it was pouring and blowing a gale. Overall, a good spot as long as you're happy to do a bit of a walk.

We stayed here for one night in a basic room, with a double bed and a set of bunks. The kitchen and bathrooms were in the same block so could be reached undercover if it was raining. Both were basic but adequate.

The kids loved the playground. There was a TV in the lounge next to the kitchen, with internet pcs (paid access, you could probably pay for wifi too), but we didn’t use them.

The site is a bit faded, but was fine for one night.
