Our interactive map (below) features New Zealand's best camping spots, as chosen by our readers. Sarah Bennett added her favourite - Okarito Community Campground.

There's a hole in the clouds over this tiny, West Coast hamlet, population 31, where you'll find New Zealand's sweetest little camping spot, just a stone's throw from the beach.

Slot your dosh into the honesty box, pitch up in a leafy corner, gather driftwood for the fire pit, then stoke it up for marshmallows after a glorious sunset walk to the trig.

Just one of our favourites in a nation well known for spectacular camping.
