Description:

'The home of legends, tall stories and laughter.' A page out of history, set on the banks of a glacial stream at the bottom of the hill before the Homer Tunnel, turn at the Lake Marion/Hollyford track corner. There are no power sites as the only electricity is from a generator, only turned on in the evening so you can charge your camera batteries. A new recreation building is ready and houses a kitchen, ablutions and lounge, this facility has disability access. There is a fridge available in the kitchen/dining area, well actually the fridge is masquerading as a freezer, as there is only enough electricity to run it as a fridge! The camp store has food, a selection of Bowenite Greenstone, NZ books and souvenirs for sale, there is a petrol pump too. This is a great base for hunting, fishing and tramping with many day walks for the family, and the Hollyford and Routeburn tracks are close by. Check out New Zealand_s silver beech tree with the largest girth, or pay a visit the Humboldt waterfall, and in the evening see the glow-worms. Spend some time in the museum and wonder at the difficulties encountered building the Milford Road and Homer Tunnel and see the origins of this unique camp.
