Paid Campsites

While freedom camping is a great way to explore New Zealand on the cheap, it can be stressful having to give up bricks and mortar accommodation for the confines of a camper. A paid campsite is a commercially operated campsite that charges per night with power, cooking, washing and cleaning facilities and is a great way to recharge the battery. There are around 19,123 powered sites spread throughout New Zealand, tucked into every nook and cranny of the country! You will often meet other freedom campers so it’s a great way to discuss routes and make good friends along the way.
