WHAT DO USERS SAY ABOUT THE APP?

Charlotte D'Arcy

This app was recommended to me in a backpackers! Not only does it tell you the locations of camps but also points of interest, public toilets, ATMs, petrol stations...I've used it for so much around both NZ and Aus and pointed me in the direction of things I didn't know were there. It constantly updates with discounted campsites and activities too. It's great!

Laurens McGregor

Invaluable tool for camping, used it to find and check reviews for every campsite I visited, top notch. Maps for grocery shops, fuel stations, and dump stations for wastewater were also very handy. Make sure to download the offline maps cos you won't get phone reception in the fun places!

I just want to thank you. We used CamperMate in our trip to South Island New Zealand. It was our first time in a motorhome and your app helped us to enjoy it, to feel safe and feel that we really had a mate ready to help.

Super useful for our Townsville to Darwin road trips. The reviews are really helpful for picking places to aim for and for checking if a campground is for self-contained vehicles only. I like being able to ‘favourite’ a few camping places at once too.

FAQ

Absolutely! CamperMate is translated into English, German, French and Chinese. If your phone is set to any of those languages, the app will automatically show in that language. Or to view the app in another language just change your phone settings. Too easy.
Because we want your wicked travel experience to also be a safe one! Having your location services on means we can send you safety alerts from severe weather or tsunami warnings, to real-time updates on road closures, and helpful notifications on some of NZs popular walking tracks. Plus, you’ll also get access to the best deals in your area – who doesn’t like a bargain on the road?
Yes, please do. CamperMate’s packed full of good places travellers have shared with us over the years and our database is growing every day. If you stumble across a stupendous spot, upload it so others can find it too. If you enjoyed staying somewhere, or had an amazing experience, then leave a comment on the page for other travellers. We’ve made a short video to show you how easy it is to add to CamperMate:

All submissions are reviewed by our team so cursing trolls won’t make it through.
They sure are. Downloading our maps means you can look for things on the app and plan your journey when you’re offline. We update our information daily so it’s a good idea to connect the app to WiFi as often as you can, so you know you’re looking at the latest version.
Yes, we like to take care of the travelling fur babies. Look for a dog icon in the description of campgrounds. Or tap on the ‘Pets Welcome’ filter when you’re searching for somewhere to sleep across all accommodation, campgrounds (both self contained and non self contained) and then you know everyone’s welcome once you get there.

That said, ultimately, it’s up to the owner’s discretion when it comes to pets.

CAMPING IN NEW ZEALAND

Camping in New Zealand should be high on every outdoor enthusiast’s bucket list. From the snowy peaks, jewel-coloured lakes and moss-covered forests of the South Island, to the glittering bays and hissing geisers of the North Island, New Zealand is a nature lover’s playground.

It’s not hard to see why camping with a tent, campervan or caravan is such a popular way to explore New Zealand – who wouldn’t want to wake up beside a pristine beach, a crystal-blue stream or have mountain views at your doorstep? 

Whether you’re a first-time camper, a glamper or a seasoned backcountry explorer, getting out there has never been easier thanks to the abundance and variety of national park campgrounds, caravan parks, freedom camping reserves and RV facilities to found right across New Zealand. Take CamperMate along for the ride, and you’re all set for a no-stress adventure.

Packed full of handy location-specific information, such as campsites, nearby petrol, mountain safety alerts, local deals and user-reviewed things to see and do, CamperMate is the one app you should never leave home without.
