Camping in central otago

The traditional and quintessential Kiwi camping holiday experience is still a welcome feature in Central Otago. The climate and lifestyle mean that this region truly is one of the prime camping centres in New Zealand. Many families have fond memories of camping holidays over many years and even generations. With long hot summers, clear skies and clean rivers this is the place to visit. 

Whatever type of camping holiday you enjoy – you will be welcomed in Central Otago. In and around urban areas campers enjoy a wide choice of fully serviced camping grounds . There are also a selection of limited facility camp sites in some smaller locations – for example The Fraser Domain – in Earnscleugh and the St Bathan’s Domain in St Bathan’s. 

If in doubt, assume nothing – always ask a local   

Visitors are warmly welcomed in Central and with a wide open countryside there are ample areas to stay. Have a great holiday and we look forward to seeing you again.

The Holiday Park category includes camping grounds and motor camps usually with built or fixed accommodation such as cabins and tourist flats. All properties provide communal kitchens, toilets, showers and laundries as well as a variety of additional on-site facilities and services. Powered and non-powered sites are provided for tents and campervans.

DoC Campsites 
The Department of Conservation (DoC) provides campsites in many locations throughout New Zealand. The campsites are usually quite basic, offering 'back to nature' style accommodation and facilities. A full list of camp sites in the Otago Area can be found on the DoC website.

Dump Stations 
You can find a dump station in most campsites throughout Central Otago. If you are not staying at the campsite there may be a small charge for the use of their dump station. However for your convenience some petrol stations and other free public access locations provide dump station facilities as well.
