Should I pre-book camping, DOC sites?

Most camping grounds in New Zealand do not require reservations except for the two weeks after Christmas, Public Holiday weekends and the Easter holidays.
When you are going for one of the ‘Great Walks’ it does pay to book the (Department of Conservation) sites as they usually have limited availability. You can always use the on board cell phone to call ahead and if you want to. You can find all approved camping sites, including DOC-sites and their telephone numbers on
