Milford Sound Lodge would like to notify our customers about the natural risks and hazards prevalent in Milford Sound, the remote location where our Lodge is situated. Detailed information of these risks and hazards can be found here.

Guests should be aware that our campsites are beneath native rainforest and therefore pose some risk to campers. These risks may include:

  • Falling branches or trees High winds or storms can increase this risk, potentially causing damage to the vehicle or injury to occupants. This risk is partially mitigated by Milford Sound Lodge undertaking periodic Tree Risk Assessments using professional arborists to assist in managing the forest and associated risk.
  • Debris damage: Trees can shed leaves, branches, and other debris, which may fall onto the campervan and cause damage. This could include scratches, dents, or broken windows if the debris is large enough.
  • Sap and resin: Parking under certain types of trees can expose the campervan to sap and resin, which may be difficult to remove and can damage the vehicle's exterior or paint finish.
  • Wildlife encounters: Camping under trees may attract wildlife such as birds, or insects, which could potentially cause damage to the campervan or be a nuisance to occupants.
  • Limited sunlight for solar panels: If your campervan relies on solar panels for power, parking under dense tree cover may limit the amount of sunlight the panels receive, reducing their effectiveness in charging the vehicle's batteries.
