5 Reasons to Stay at NZ Campsites on Your Family Holiday

Ever wondered what makes camping in New Zealand so special? Here’s five reason’s why you should stay at NZ Campsites on your family holidays.

1. Local Attractions
New Zealand’s local attractions are aplenty from the top of the North Island all the way down the South Island and onto Stewart Island. If you are a budget conscious traveller, don’t be fooled by thinking that you have to pay to enjoy all of the local attractions; many are free! For example, a stay at a campsite in Taupo will provide you with the opportunity to stroll across the road and swim in the famous Lake Taupo itself, or a stay in Canterbury will provide you with bush walks on your doorstep. There are so many local attractions which are close to many of the NZ campsites. The hosts at any campsite can provide you with plenty of ideas that cost next to nothing!

2. Sights & Sounds
New Zealand is famous for it’s natural vistas. Ancient Kauri forests, lakes, golden beaches and freshwater rivers name a few scenic backdrops on offer. NZ Campsites are generally located in areas which provide a private park like atmosphere and therefore provide a natural environment for your stay. There’s nothing quite like getting away from the city and hearing the sounds of nature, either. Native birds and animals provide for a unique morning wake up call, that you just don’t get with the likes of motel or hotel accommodations.

3. Family Friendly Fun
NZ Campsites allow you as a family to enjoy time together but at the same time, the opportunity to spread out and explore. The kids will love walking down the riverbeds looking for cockabilly’s or just enjoying having the equivalent of a huge backyard to kick a ball around in for instance. If it’s raining you can always make the most of the games or TV rooms or why not play a board game or game of cards in the communal room.

4. Kiwi Hospitality
The hosts at NZ Campsites have true ‘kiwi’ personalities and will extend a warm welcome to you on arrival. Their hospitality doesn’t end there, most live on site and will assist you whenever you need it. Not only that but you can expect clean, tidy camp sites with clear explanations of the facilities on offer to you. As mentioned earlier many hosts can offer full tour and activity booking services, which not only makes it easier for you to get out and about to enjoy the area, but allows your hosts to get to know you.

5. Share Your Holiday with Like Minded Kiwi’s & Travellers
Many New Zealand citizens (“kiwi’s”) enjoy campsite holidays annually. You are most likely to come across many who have booked the same site for years and know the area well. This provides a unique atmosphere, and the opportunity to make life long friends, something which we don’t often get to do in the more independent styles of accommodation. You can also get to know other families and travellers who you can share BBQ tea’s with or perhaps a game of cricket for instance.

When you are looking for camping holiday destinations, I recommend that you experience a stay in New Zealand.
