native parks scheme

I've been reading about the Native Park Scheme.

Native Parks is a network of rural properties and businesses extending welcome to motorhome holiday makers travelling through New Zealand. A membership to Native Parks allows you to stay over night on their properties and the membership cost $70.

Has anyone ever tried???Any feedbacks???

I'm not sure how popular they are, they've been mentioned a couple of times on here but I've seen no feedback. I have a SIL who uses them infrequently and from what I can gather, they're more suited to the NZ long term campervanners that travel the country. Quite often they are well off the beaten track and not in an area that visitors would usually visit.

On the plus side it would be more like freedom camping; some area don't allow freedom camping, it would also be safer than pulling up on the side of a road. Alot are in very remote places. I'm not sure how many places they have available, I think you should ask that question before purchasing a membership.

Try a questionto the NZMC (NZ motor caravan assn). Google or whatever for their adress. I know a few people into motor caravans but can not help you with this on. I'm not sure how widespread they are.
