Glamping is a popular accommodation option for the summer months. These tents are stand-alone tents and our version of posh camping. All the thrills of camping but with none of the hassles.

We have five different types of tents: shared single tents, private single tents, private queen tents, queen lakeview tents and queen star gazing tents that have an extra bubble tent for night sky star gazing.

Basic cutlery, crockery, pots, fry pans and tea towel are provided and you use the camp or alfresco kitchen, toilets and showers. Showers are operated on a 6 minute timer. With seating outside you can enjoy the alpine environment or chat to your fellow glampers.

"This location was a great stop while we travel around the South Island. They have a variety of accommodations to meet everyone’s needs, from camping to lodging and even “glamping” options. The facilities were clean and well distributed throughout the area. We stayed at the stargazing glamping site... it was amazing to see the stars. Also from our location we had a great view of lake Tekapo. We highly recommend this location for anyone who is camping or on an RV."

"Such a fun place to stay! We stayed in a glamping tent for something different and it was an awesome experience. Even though we got a cloudy night and no starry views, it was still nice sitting in the stargazing dome thing and enjoying nature without the cold wind and rain. I will 100% be coming back! Being right on the lake is incredible, we went swimming, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding - and don’t forget to go to the springs!"

"We cannot rate Late Tekapo Motels & Holiday Park highly enough. Beyond being a lovely place to stay right on the lake with fabulous facilities, the staff were incredibly helpful in facilitating some lost luggage to return to us in Australia, requiring their team to arrange courier quotes, packaging and make trips to the post office."

"We enjoyed our stay here. Nice facilities and amazing lake and stargazing views. Close proximity to the sites and town. Big kitchen, good BBQs, great music (Talking Heads and Tom Petty!) and friendly staff."

"Spacious cabin, clean and comfortable with a small terrace. Shared facilities were very modern, clean, and high capacity (no waiting lines). Great, clean, BBQs and spacious kitchen. Big shared terrace with a great view on lake Tekapo. 15 minutes walk to town center with supermarket, and about 5 minutes to the start of the Mt John track to viewpoint and observatory. Highly recommended."
