Responsible Freedom Camping

Kaikōura welcomes those who camp responsibly. We ask all campers to treat our environment with respect and not to leave rubbish or human waste behind them. All campers using public land (freedom camping) must be self contained or have easy access to toilets. 

Over the last few years Kaikōura District Council has been working towards finding a sustainable, permanent and positive solution to ensuring those who camp in Kaikōura do so responsibly. Council coordinates a Responsible Camping Working Group that is working together to agree how camping should be managed in Kaikōura.
