Lake Tekapo Motels & Holiday Park Reviews
Only campground in Lake Tekapo Dec 19, 2010
Date: 18 December 2010
Check-in: The man and woman checking us in were super friendly. They gave us one of the better sites with unobstructed views of the lake and told us that by booking online you get the better sites. We only arrived around 7pm and he told me that several others had arrived much earlier in the day and were disappointed they didn't get a nice site like us. Lesson learned, book ahead!
Location: The campground is located near, but not directly on the lake, as it is raised up above the road below. The lake is about a one to two minute walk. The "town" is about a 1 minute drive away . The town has several restaurants, a petrol station and a small grocery store.
Facilities: The toilet block had showers ($2 for 10 minutes), toilets and sinks. There were no outlets in the ladies side but there was an outlet on the men's side. There was a small building with a tv and a couple computers which had internet you could pay for. I didn't see anyone else using the building while we were there other than one other person using the internet.
Overall experience: At the time we were blown away by the place but it was our first stop after not really sleeping the previous night. We did wake up at 5am (due to jetlag) and saw a gorgeous sunrise on the lake. There were also lots of wild rabbit running around and the church on the other side of the town was very picturesque and worth checking out.
