Mrs Woolly's Campground

A place to rest your head whilst being surrounded by magnificent mountains and scenery.

The campground is now closed for the season. We will re-open 16th September 2022.





Mrs Woolly’s campground is part of The Headwaters group - a not-for-profit organisation and is very much part of the Glenorchy community.  It is located in the heart of the Glenorchy township next to Mrs Woolly’s General Store and a short walk to the lakefront and the lagoon boardwalk. 


Whether you are sleeping in a tent or a campervan, Mrs Woolly’s Campground certainly provides one of the most stunning picture-perfect backdrops in New Zealand. 


Grab a freshly made expresso from Mrs Woolly's General Store and take in the stunning views of plunging valleys and snow-covered peaks from the campground. 



The campground has clean modern facilities on-site to enhance your stay including hot showers (coin-operated), toilets, laundry facilities, WiFi and children’s playground. There is also a well-maintained kitchen with refrigerators, stoves, pottery, basic kitchen utensils and outdoor BBQ’s. Picnic benches are scattered around the hub of the campground enabling you to enjoy a relaxed meal morning, noon or night!

The campground is conveniently positioned next to Mrs Woolly’s General Store which has a range of tramping equipment and food supplies including fresh produce, bread and of course coffee.


The campsite has 33 unpowered sites, 9 tent-only sites and 5 powered sites for campervans and RV’s. 


Please note, there is no dump station available on-site so you will need to empty your waste tank before getting to Glenorchy.


You will need to make your booking & pre-pay for your campsite online only. No vaccine passport is required to stay at the campground.
