An ode to our mild climate, camping is a fun activity almost year-round in Taitokerau Northland.

There are loads of options and great locations to choose from, including numerous Department of Conservation campsites, well-established holiday parks and independent camping grounds and reserves. Many holiday parks also have cabins available. While freedom camping is permitted in some areas, most camping sites are well-marked so be sure to do your research before parking up for the night.

There are a number of freedom camping sites around Northland however some are available only to self-contained vehicles and a number have restrictions on length of stay particularly in the summer. Plan before you go with the Freedom Camping Website.
