There will be a dedicated area for campervans, self-contained caravans and motorhomes at Clareville Showgrounds. These sites are available from Tuesday 4 April to Monday 10 April for just $15 per night, or $10 per night for NZMCA members.


Campsites are non-powered, and limited to 500 sites, so make sure you book campsite early to avoid disappointment. These can be purchased through Eventfinda when you buy your Night Glow tickets.
