Your guide to affordable campground stays year round!


CampSaver is an NZMCA member benefit providing yet another low-cost parking option.

With CampSaver, you can find a range of affordable campgrounds at your fingertips year round. Each season we partner with select campgrounds nationwide to offer members a guaranteed, attractive low-rate on campground stays. 

CampSaver began as an off-season program in 2019 with 40 odd participating campgrounds, and after a first successful year we brought it back in 2020 for another off-season, bigger and better with 70+ participating campgrounds.

For the first time in 2020, we're introducing a CampSaver shoulder-season. It holds all the great benefits that you've come to know with the original off-season program, but is a seperate program under the CampSaver umbrella.

So now theres two official seasons of CampSaver - Winter (off-season) and Summer (shoulder-season)!

A list of participating campgrounds will be avaliable for each season on this page, a few months in advance of when either season begins. Only on the day either Winter or Summer seasons start will their be a list avaliable on the ONLINE Travel Directory and Travel App.

It's the off-season you know & love!

It's the original off-season program, making travelling in the off-season easy - and you don’t have to break the bank to do so! This year we've partnered with over 70 campgrounds to offer an incredible standardised rate - no matter where you go, pay a guaranteed low-rate.
