If region wide freedom camping was allowed, with only bans or restrictions in a few highly problematic spots then many of the issues would evaporate and we would stop seeing facilities being overloaded. Most polluting of rest stops and reserves is done by day trippers or feral locals... yet there has not been widespread ban and instant fines targeting them.
Yeah right.KARAVANA wrote:Perhaps its time for the NZMCA to become front runners in the support of these freedom camper sites and make it compulsory for all members to make available the toilets and showers on their own vehicles for other peoples use at these free sites. It would set an example to all those locals being NIMBY that there truly is no cost to anyone providing support to freedom camping in NZ.
Lets meet the challenge head on!!
