This camping ground is as near perfect as it gets. The grass is beautifully manicured. Everything is neat and tidy and clean. The best part is that the cabins haven't been redecorated in decades by the look of them. To be honest it would spoil the wonderful atmosphere if they were "modernised" This is an honest place run by honest...

I was working the ski season at Mt Hutt and I lived at the campsite for the duration of the season. I lived it one of the cabins and switched to one of the double cabins half way through. The cabins are warm and cosy, the kitchen is big, the lounge is warm when you get a fire going, there...

Stayed a night in one of the cabins over the weekend and really enjoyed it! The camp has a relaxed old school kiwi vibe to it, is nice and close to town, has well looked after grounds, a pleasant owner and friendly animals. Value for money too. Will definitely go back and stay again

We have stayed at Methven Motor Camp 3 times now. A fourth this Easter. We have always found the proprietor helpful, the camp is older but you take that into consideration. Everything is always clean and the grass cut. Have never used the games room but walking through it seems like a fun place. A great place to camp when...

This time it had a tennis court! Owners are lovely, the location is great and the grounds are well maintained. Good pricing! We pitched a tent for a few days and made the camp grounds our base. We could drive to the water fall, play tennis and just relax and enjoy the outdoors.

We stayed at Methven camping ground for about 7 weeks whilst we were skiing at Mt Hutt. We liked it so much we just kept extending our stay! We were in one of the cabins with a kitchenette. It was great for cooking meals and relaxing after a days skiing. Our cabin had a great deck we could sit out...

Stayed there for 6 nights, the owner is very nice and cool guy. In general, we are very happy with the place, but my index finger was pricked twice by a nail under the bathroom handle. I think the owner needs to fix the small nail tip protruding from the door. The shower water is very hot, it is very...
