When to travel in NZ.
Please during the school holidays you may find a number of camp sites are fully booked and so I would suggest you book ahead during these busy times.
Three Phone Apps to help you find Camp sites:
1. Camping NZ - Free and paid NZ camping location on your iPhone™, iPad™ or Android™ phone or tablet.
Avoid paying fines for staying overnight in illegal sites by using this officially approved app. Featuring offline maps.
Say No to camping fines! This official app is the only camping database that’s approved by every council representative in NZ. If it shows on the app, you’re allowed to stay. So you can relax and enjoy your holiday.
Camping NZ features Offline Maps, so you can find all camping locations, free of restrictions from NZ's poor and expensive internet. This app gives you Freedom!
