Is Freedom Camping allowed in New Zealand? And other frequently asked questions.
Freedom Camping or Free Camping is still allowed in New Zealand. However, due to the actions of a few selfish people, this may change in the future. Campers defecating in pristine camping areas and dumping human waste from campervans, often near waterways, is a very real problem. Also, the amount of garbage left behind at some sites is disgusting to say the least.
New Zealand has a countrywide network of Dump Stations and refuse collection facilities, so there really is no excuse for campers to leave their rubbish and waste behind. In the interests of New Zealand remaining a Freedom Camping paradise, DANNY : DE HEK urge everyone touring the country to please manage their waste and garbage properly.
