Close to routeburn track, so very convenient. Basic with 2 dry toilets and 1 small sink.



Just spent two nights here, as did a couple of others, great base if you're planning on doing some of the Routeburn Track which we did, epic! Lots of nice spaces to choose from, lovely views, very quiet and lots of sheep and rabbits! Clean drop-loos and phone signal. The non-drinking water taps didn't work though?! Not sure why?
