This campground is managed by Wanaka Lakeview Holiday Park but does not have an onsite reception. Rangers patrol the area.

Bookings are not required other than registering to stay on the Hawea side over the Christmas/ New Year period (see below). Guests are limited to a maximum of 28 day stay here.

Should you have any questions that are not answered in the information below, please contact Wanaka Lakeview Holiday Park on 03 443 7883 or email alberttowncamp@wanakalakeview.co.nz

Well behaved dogs are welcome year round. They must be on a lead at all times and not left unaccompanied. Please pick up after your dog.


The Clutha side campground has basic facilities with flush toilets, running water and a rubbish skip.  The Hawea side has long drop toilets and no running water. The dump station is in Wanaka beside the Wanaka Lakeview Holiday Park.


No bookings are taken for this site, you just pick your spot and pay on arrival for your camping fees. We accept cash and card payments at the eftpos machines on both sides of the river. If you are coming during the Christmas/New Year period please check the details below. Email to register your details for stays on the Hawea side only.

Fees are:

$10 per adult, $5 per child (15 yrs and under, 5 yrs and under are free) on the Clutha river side of the campground

$7 per adult, $3.50 per child (15 yrs and under, 5 yrs and under are free) on the Hawea river side of the campground

This is an affordable option, whilst still only being a 10 minute drive into the centre of Wanaka. Well-behaved dogs are allowed to stay at this campground.

As stated above, payment is by cash or card at the eftpos stations on both the Clutha and Hawea river side sites.

Location and attractions:

Albert Town Campground is a great spot right beside the Clutha & Hawea Rivers and all the bike tracks, including the very popular Deans Bank Track. There is also world class fly fishing right here at the Outlet. Please check the Fish and Game website for license requirements and season dates.

Albert Town itself is well serviced by a Four Square supermarket, Albert Town Fish Co. restaurant, Fish and Chip Takeaway and the Prince Albert pub. Additionally, there is the Double Black cafe and Pembroke Patisserie to tickle your taste buds. Hook also offers you the chance to catch your own salmon and have it cooked on site as well as offering delicious snacks and wine in beautiful surroundings.
