Upon arrival I was disrespected and felt an invasion of privacy. I thought that the owners first and second impressions were enough for me to continue driving to a different lodge/campground. First there was a rude comment ready for my common questions. As I figured out where else to go I was surprised by the owner abruptly opening up the door of my van, that I was resting my back on and had to catch myself from falling out. The rude comments continued by telling me I was in the way so I hurried away. Never been disrespected at a hotel/ lodge like that before in my life. The owner could use a forever vacation from that job.

Had stayed at Gunn's Camp while tramping a few years ago and returned recently with my wife. The position of the camp worked well with us doing some of the walks in the area and visiting Milford. There is no pretense at luxury - even take your own cooking pots - but for my money the cozy, rustic and quirky atmosphere more than compensates. Our cabin was comfortable and warmed by a fire which the proprietors lit for us, the double bed was very comfortable (we hired bedding to avoid carrying it for one night) and was made up for us by our hosts. The proprietors seemed very friendly and willing to help in any way. In my view, Gunn's camp is definitely worth experiencing, although some might find stepping outside your hut in bare feet into two inches of fresh snow on a night toilet trip (as happened on my first visit), to be pushing the boundaries of enjoyment. Yes, I would go back and probably will if the opportunity offers.

We stayed three nights in this fantastic campground in the remote Hollyford Valley. Absolutely loved the history and the setting. Perfect location for exploring such a beautiful area of NZ. Hosts were brilliant and really accommodating. Highly recommend stepping back in time, unplugging and relaxing at Gunns camp.
