Places to stay

Arthur’s Pass village is in the centre of the park, on State Highway 73. The Arthur’s Pass Visitor Centre provides interpretative displays and information. There are plenty of accommodation options in and around the village, from motels, bed and breakfast, to backpackers. There are also several eating places, a craft shop, basic groceries and petrol.

A DOC camping area is located in the village, with a day shelter, toilets and water, for a nominal charge. Most main entry points into the park also have basic camping facilities. Over 30 backcountry huts and basic shelters (bivouacs) are located within the park, linked by a large network of tracks and routes.

Visit the Arthur's Pass website for more accomodation options.
