John, the amiable owner, gave us a warm welcome and a tour of the site and its facilities. These were excellent, and we made use of the well-equipped laundry room. Great location close to the centre of town, but without any noticeable traffic noise, and a short hop to the river.

Thank you MERandGCR, I had to look up "amiable" very kind words. Yes I like to take everyone around and show them where everything is so it makes your holiday a little stress free. And I agree we have a fantastic location, 300m from the center of town and then the Clutha River is just over the fence at the back which pits us right in the country. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels...Regards John

This is an easy campground to stay in. Great facilities and a really homely kitchen/lounge/tv room. Excellent laundry. But the real gem (apart from the friendly proprietor) is the walk out the back of the campground, over the stopbank through to the great Clutha River across a bank of river stones. Magic.

Thank you for your positive review. We are very lucky to be next door to Naish Park (Wonderful Setting, Playground, Duck Pond) and the Blair Athol Walkway with access to the Clutha River via the stop-banks. There is a lot of Free entertainment here for free if you like a walk, photography or fishing. John

Arrived late at night and had room all ready. Had emailed all instructions as to where cabin was and had bed all made up as I had asked for bedding. When I arrived the owner came out (10.30pm) to make sure I could find the room and to show me where all the facilities were. Extremely helpful and friendly. Camp is small but very clean and well looked after. The person looking after the camp while John is away is lovely and doing a very good job. Thanks for making it so easy.

I was a permanent resident for nearly a year (September 2014 to July 2015). It was a pleasure to live there. The camp has a nice mixture of friendly permanent residents and tourists, mostly those travelling between Invercargill and Dunedin via the Catlins. The kitchen / dining room is very well stocked and with a large screen TV it is a very welcoming area to cook and have a meal. John, the resident manager is very obliging and appeared to be almost always available. Repairs and maintenance are undertaken promptly, and as a consequence, the property is very clean and tidy. Internet access is good (if perhaps a little slow, but this is a fault of the area, and not the camp) with very reasonable access fees. I lived in both my campervan and later in a cabin, which was very comfortable. I highly recommend Balclutha Motor Camp whether you are only staying overnight or longer. A real gem. Well done John, and thank you for making my stay so comfortable.

Thanks Lionel you were a pleasure to have in the Camp while working in the area. Should you ever need a reference please contact me. The internet provider has a new owner and have replaced an aged part in the system and seems to be going a lot better, a little faster than my house. My Guests and Residents enjoyed having you here. John.

Highly recommend this spot! Short walk to shops. Great facilities and service. Very accommodating and inviting. Great kitchen and TV room that has plenty of utensils etc and things to do and look at. Bathrooms and laundry are also excellent. Can't fault this spot at all.
