About the All Points Camping Club

Est. December 2015 the

All Points Camping Club of NZ

has been developed as a national support organisation for all campers in NZ to ensure

Kiwi's continue to enjoy this healthy,

recreational activity across the country. 

Get the Points

  • North, South, East or West we are there for you.

  • A unified voice for ALL NZ campers

  • Inclusive - All types of campers are welcome

        - Bring the family, or tent. Bring an open heart

  • Friendly Advice and support 

  • Building friendships

  • Regional groups

  • Member events 

  • Savings and discounts 

  • Lobbying for campers rights

We often get asked if the All Points Camping Club has properties for members to park overnight at.

As the club has only been operating for 6 years our  members funds do not yet enable us to own or lease properties.


APCNZ prefers to support and promote existing property owners, campgrounds and council / DoC reserves. It is important that those who provide facilities for campers are supported.


You can view or add to our growing list of recommended  StopandStay properties here.  

APCNZ position statement on camping in NZ -page-001 (1).jpg

  Latest News:

On Thursday the 25th August, the Minister for Tourism, Stuart Nash presented the draft 

Self Contained Motor Vehicles Legislation bill.

Perhaps the nastiest and most vindictive piece of draft legislation, without any factual basis, by a Labour Minister against recreation users yet.


  • We are currently reviewing this bill in detail, as to how it could affect NZ campers.

  • We will be updating the NZ camping public as we know more through this website and on our facebook pages.or www.campingthekiwiway.org .

"It was by chance I discovered the All Points Camping Club after going around in circles in an attempt to get my little van certified for self-containment.  I was astonished at how helpful and friendly everyone I have dealt with has been.  The fees are extraordinarily inexpensive and such value for money too,"
