Lonely Planet review

Lonely_Planet“Heading east across Arthur’s Pass on SH73, 63km from Greymouth, the tiny settlement of Jackons can be found nestled beside the Taramakau River. Campervan travellers and tenters can stay at Jacksons Retreat, a superb holiday park set upon 15 sloping acres with exceptional views and stacks of excellent amenities. Our independent authors have visited Jacksons Retreat and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Kumara.”
