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.
- Sleeping bag
