We enjoyed two nights here and really liked the atmosphere facilities & service.The town is neat with cafes and good pub eateries. We enjoyed the Dubliner bar atmosphere and the Lodge for dinner. We also loved to drive up to Lake Coleridge - well worth the effort!

Stayed in the cabin by the entrance of the campground. Was nice and cosy, though the cabin was not completely soundproof. We do hear vehicles coming into the campground, but we are not near the park vehicles so that is good. Electric blankets and heater provided for us. Heater in the cabin turns off by itself every hour but we...

The camp site is quite small but nice sites and flat. You can have a grass site or gravel. The amenities are unisex and showers are $2. If paying by card, you incur a 3% surcharge, which I thought was very steep considering that apparently, according to another campsite that do not charge a surcharge, business are only charged 1.4%...

The last two nights we stayed at this campsite with our campervan! At the reception we met a very nice and friendly couple who could awnser all our questions. From Methven we could take the ski bus to Mount Hutt. The camping was small, but very clean and friendly.

My wife and l stayed 2 nights at this campsite. We were warmly greeted at the reception on arrival. The campsite is small but was great as we got to know our neighbors. The campsite is well maintained, clean and a great location as it is only a 5 minute walk into the shopping area and restaurants. It was great...

This is a cute little camp ground. Tint by all standards but the lodge is its main winner. Recepetion lady was welcoming - however it was pointed out we had arrived prior to check in at 2pm. I find this a bit dated for a camp site, especially if you have been on the road for several hours. If you...

We stayed at Abisko for 3 nights, and were told we could pitch our tent anywhere we wanted. The owners were pretty nice and gave us some information about the area. Although the camping ground is right downtown, it feels very private and the grass is very nice. The lounge area has heating, tv, couches and a big table, which...

Friendly & helpful reception upon arrival. We booked in for 2 nights, as we planned to ski Mt Hutt the following day. Campground was small but presentable. The small shower & toilet facilities were unisex, which seems to be quite common, though I can't say I'm a big fan. They were built into the side of a big shed, as...

We stayed one night in the campground in our camper van prior to our 3 night stay in the Abisko Apartments. The owners were very accommodating towards our late arrival and request for an early check in to the apartments. Can't thank them enough. The campsite is fairly basic compared to others that we used on our 12 days travelling...

We were the only people staying here in November so out of season. The facilities were all clean, kitchen with plenty of utensils, pots and pans for us, but may have needed more if the site had been full. We happily turned the heating on in the rest area as it was chilly, and spent two evenings happily reading our...
