As I said in the title of the review, It sums it up very easily. I was a tent camper and found the area designated for tents was quite large and many sites to choose from. On the days that I was in the Mt. Cook and Glentanner region, I happened to get unbelievable weather and not a cloud in the sky. This made it very easy to explore as many things as I wanted and with the help from "Meagan" ( the over the top nice & informative reception girl) I was able to explore most of the parks glacier hikes, lakes, & rivers for fishing. I had an amazing, one of a kind time that I will remember forever. Its a when I come back, not an if I come back, I will be sure to stay at the Glentanner Park. The location is set back so one can view the whole park instead of being crammed at the base of the mountain as if looking up at a skyscraper. I highly suggest staying at the Glentanner park, you can't go wrong! Great facility.
