  • Double (for two adults): $40.00
  • Family (for two adults and 1 or 2 children between 5-17 years of age): $60.00

This means by buying a DOC Pass you essentially pay for three nights and can stay up to seven nights at over 200 DOC campsites across New Zealand.

A night at a DOC campsite costs on average $8 so this is a great way to have a value-for-money holiday while still contributing to conservation.
