Freedom camping

Marlborough’s freedom camp sites are all closed. Under COVID-19 Alert Level 2, campsite toilet and washing facilities require increased cleaning, and the Council is also required to have a contact tracing system in place for all visitors. The Council does not have the resources available to do that at present.

If the country moves to Alert Level 1, the Council will reconsider opening the sites, depending on Government and health advice.

A number of commercial campsites are open and campers are encouraged to use those facilities.
