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.
All Points Camping has organised camping events at
North Island events
Fri, 3 Feb Lakes Ranch, Rotorua (All Points Camp)
Fri, 3 Feb Morison's Bush, Wairarapa (All Points Camp)

It costs nothing to promote your weekend event with APCNZ
if it has a camping component. <List here >
"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,"
We had a great turnout from members across lower North Island at the Whanganui Vintage Weekend (19-22 January). The intermediate school was a good venue for camping and in walking distance of many of the weekend events.
Two North Island camps are planned for Waitangi weekend.
In the Wairarapa you can join us at Morison’s Bush on the Ruamahanga River. This campsite on private farmland has good river swimming. It is just north of Martinborough, where the Martinborough Fair is being held on the Saturday. You can find out more details and register at https://www.allpointscampingnz.org/event-details/apcnz-morrisons-bush-martinborough-fair-camp
All Points is also hosting a camp at Lakes Ranch, Tikitere, Rotorua. This is an awesome site with lots of activities, a large hall for social gatherings, and heated and hot pools. More details about the ranch can be found on their website www.lakesranch.org.nz. For details on how to register, go to https://www.allpointscampingnz.org/event-details/lakes-ranch-rotorua-apcnz-camp.
The next All Points camp in the South Island is on the weekend of 17-19 February at Nelson Creek on the West Coast. This attractive campground is set in an old gold mining area full of exploration opportunities. The campground is next to the creek, where you can go gold panning and has numerous sheltered campsites. For more details and to register, go to
