New Zealand is a campervan nirvana - a small, sparsely populated country with friendly locals and scenic serenity. This unique travel mix has led to a large upsurge in motorhome travel over the last decade.

When it comes to freedom camping, a lack of respect in some instances has tested many local's patience. While a lack of information has left the traveller feeling confused. This map helps us all.

Remember you have the freedom of choice - enjoy and follow these 'I Respect NZ' golden rules:

  • Please don't stray. Only camp in the designated locations shown.
  • If your vehicle isn't self contained, please stay where toilets are provided.

If you respect New Zealand, the locals will respect you in return, and good times abound!
