Such a peaceful experience. Beautiful, well appointed surroundings. Loved relaxing in the lounge with a drink at the end of the day. Our cabin was comfortably warm and am totally sold on composting toilet!!😊

Campy GY is the best place to stay in Glenorchy. It's beautiful, the beds are amazingly comfy and you wake up every morning to the best view on earth. On top of all of that, Camp Glenorchy gives you an opportunity to learn about how to bring eco and sustainable practises into your own life.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Camp Glenorchy. We initially chose this place because it is pet friendly and we like to travel with our 2 wee dogs. The location is great, pretty much in the heart of the community, within walking distance of everything. Lots of great walking trails around the area. We enjoyed the well-constructed eco-style rooms and were very comfortable. The grounds were nice and the whole place was very well looked after and maintained. The meals at the lodge are a unique experience. You are provided all the raw materials for your meal and it is up to you to cook it up in their massive communal kitchen, and clean up afterwards. Likewise, at breakfast, they provide the food but you are expected to clean your dishes afterwards. A very different approach to meals!! Overall we had an excellent stay and will definitely be back. Highly recommended!!
