With beautiful views of the surrounding mountains, this first come, first served campground is close to the Routeburn Track and Lake Gunn Nature Walk. It is also a great place to star watch, and along the way to Milford Sound.
This campsite is just off the Milford Highway. There will be a sign for the Cascade Creek Campground exit. Follow the dirt road for several minutes before reaching the campground. You may find a spot immediately, but the campground is fairly large and can get busy, so drive until you find a spot that works for you.

New Zealand / Franz Josef Glacier Trailhead
This trail is one of my favorite in New Zeanand. It wasn't so much 'built' as it was 'discovered'. The trail follows natural erosion and clean exposed flows of glacier carved granite walkways.
