Great campground on your way to or from Milford Sound - large and spacious with plenty of different sites to choose from. Lovely with the creek and there are beautiful views. Very basic facilities. Seems like the best option in the national park.

On our way to Milford we met the DOC rangers checking their other sites nearer Te Anau, so naturally we stopped off at Cascade on our way back from Milford. These rangers are a very nice couple, very helpful. The site itself is really lovely alongside the creek and near Lake Gunn; there is a nice walk through the forest...

Nearest DOC site to Milford (allow 1 hour drive from here to Milford Sound). Nice plots to nestle into trees, plus big wide flat areas. Toilets very smelly, so we used our own in the motor home. In a large wide open space, what makes a carload of backpackers park right next to us in car playing very loud music...

We really enjoyed this campsite among the several that we stopped at looking for the best conditions. This one is about 40min. drive to Milford Sound. Perfect night stop with a short drive to the Sound the following day. You will see the other campsites every few miles. Some are tiny, cornered in, many had the vampire flies, etc. And...

This campsite on Milford road gives great views down the eglinton valley. I'd highly recommend staying in the area rather than shooting to Milford sound and back. There are great walks locally (key summit) and it's worth spending more time. There are a few sandflies and not many facilities but that's what you expect from DoC. Great sunsets make up...

Useful location quite near to Milford Sound (max one hour drive) and very pretty with river next to the site, and mountains surrounding. However DOC need to regulate the numbers on this site much more thoughtfully. We counted at least 70 campervans and cars. People were still arriving after 7pm and the site became very crowded and somewhat squalid. We...

We stayed here on our way back from Milford Sound, big site with plenty of room. There of lots of friendly birds, and other wildlife, nice place to stay. This site only offers basic facilities so remember to bring drinking water.

We spent one night here during a week of camping at various spots en route to Milford Sound and this was definitely one of the better campgrounds in the area. That being said, the place becomes an absolute zoo each evening and campers pile in and try to find any scrap of empty ground. Make sure you get there early...

Used this free ($6.00 per night) DOC camping spot in our motorhome as a jump-off to spend the day in Milford Sound. Has drop toilets and some spots have camp fire place availability, my advice if you want a camp fire is to bring your own wood as what is available id scarce and very wet. Also, get there early...
