When we arrived it was super late and raining. The woman who checked us in was the owner and wasn't super friendly but she gave us what we asked for and informed us of everything that we needed to know. The community room was extremely clean and comfortable. Sadly The wood burning stove was not working and that was a...

We stayed here as a stopover en route to the glaciers and it is a great little operation. Owners and staff were very friendly and helpful, location was beautiful, facilities were excellent especially the showers, and we had a great experience overall. We were camping in a tent in the open section and the only quirk with the place is...

This was a great place for a midway shower and freshen up after a few days of campervanning. Definitely the best bathrooms, kitchen and sitting area (no TV!) of the places we've stayed. The setting is amazing, and the glow worms are great if you have kids. Note: We didn't have any phone reception, but the park has fast wifi...

We only planned to stay one night but ended up staying two! The atmosphere was so relaxing. Seeing the glow worms and the waterfall were amazing. The amenities were very modern and we found the best washrooms here of our whole NZ trip. Thoroughly recommended!

This motorpark has great views and is well set out. I booked an undercover - yes undercover spot as the forecast was for rain. And it rained but my camper was in luxury. The facilities here are very comfortable. The kitchen/lounge is large. Does get busy so patience or timing is a must. Gas cooking - excellent. Good lounge area,...

We LOVED our stay at Jackson's. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly and it was a great location for visiting Arthur's Pass. The facilities were excellent (best shower block I think I've ever seen at a campsite!) and the added bonus of being able to walk to see glow worms made this a very enjoyable stay.

We loved our one night stop over at this gorgeous holiday park. We had a very warm welcome and even a little check to see if every thing was ok 😊 amenities were very stylish and clean. Waterfalls are definitely worth the walk.

Very convenient spot to stay for those about to drive Arthur's Pass. The location is beautiful, with glow worms nearby and lovely touches around the camp site like fresh flowers in the bathroom and fresh bread available for purchase in the morning. The kitchen and common area is very welcoming, though I did wish it had been kept a bit...
