Possum Lodge Motels & Camping Ground

Located right beside the banks of the Waiau River and Lake Manapouri, just 15 minutes’ drive from Te Anau. Possum Lodge is a holiday park the way they used to be. With quaint cabins, motels, backpackers and camp sites tucked away in native beech forest with the lake and swimming literally a stone's throw from our front gate. It has character and atmosphere with a retro feel.  It's small, clean and charming.

Eight minutes’ walk to the Doubtful Sounds cruise departure point. Nearby to Fiordlands great walks, particularly the Kepler track - 9 kms away.  Wake to the delightful sound of the birds’ morning chorus and hear the native owl Ruru at night.

Beautiful scenery with views of the snow-capped mountains and the ever-changing Lake Manapouri.
