For the best experience, stay at one of New Zealand's great campsites. Many campsites and campgrounds even have cooking, toilet and shower facilities on site - everything you need in one place. You might even make new friends. 

There are a wide range of options to choose from across the country, including commercial campsites and ones operated by the Department of Conservation. 

Each campsite is unique. One day you could be staying in a forest setting and the next on a lake shore or beach - you truly are spoilt for choice! 

Many campsites provide sites for tents, caravans and campervans and many also have cabins, self-contained motel units and backpacker lodges. Powered sites are also often available.
