There are not many camps with a Morris Minor graveyard at the centre! A quirky camp in a peaceful setting, overlooking Lake Manapouri. There are plenty of sheltered, private camp sites amongst the trees on which to pitch your tent or park your van, the sites in front have fabulous lake and mountain views. A homely central kitchen and dining area is well lit with big windows and a skylight, and there are a handy collection of utensils, pots and pans. The laundry has coin operated washers and clothes dryers, an ironing board and iron. The games room is full of pin ball machines and other electronic games are available for your entertainment. There is a classic old style childrens’ playground, and bookings for Fiordland trips and cruises can be made at the office. The camp is a departure point for Doubtful Sound cruises and there is a free pick up from the doorstep. Your lovely host is Joelle Nicholson, assisted by her two sons. Unpowered sites from $18 per adult, power sites $38 for two people.
