Great camp ground with tired but clean facilities

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 24 Feb 2023
We stayed in a non powered tent site for 4 nights. The managers were great and really helpful - letting us pick our site. The even let us plus in to the power behind the toilets to charge our ebikes etc. No internet and lots of rules - they have had some bad reviews but we enjoyed our stay. Short walk to Clyde shops and cafes which were delightful. The area has great bike trails and a lovely lake for swimming.

      Avoid this place - the most unfriendly and unhelpful camp hosts we have come across. Stopped in our campervan as we were travelling through the area.

      There are not many camps in this area but dont make the mistake of stopping here - keep driving

      All other camp sites in the south Island we stayed at were super helpful - If these owners do not like tourists maybe they should look for another occupation

      I inserted $2 for a shower and water immediately shot out the cubicle door so got drenched trying to switch off, b4 even undressing. Warning: check shower is turned to OFF and nozzle pointing down before inserting money. Instructions would have been helpful.

      This summer we have visited many camping grounds in the South Island. One common feature was the generosity and friendliness of the staff. Clyde holiday camp was the exception. The male caretaker was rude and seemed to deem campers as an inconvenience. His wife, who ran the office tried, but his negativity dominated. Surely some form of friendliness should be a prerequisite for this job. The camp itself is bleak, with tired ammenities, and lacks heart. The usual camping ground sounds of laughing children and happy campers was noticeably absent.

      As the entry and exit to several biking and walking tracks this could be a welcome oasis, but it is not.
