Camping grounds busy ahead of NYE

Holiday parks are filling up ahead of New Year's Eve in what's shaping up to be a bumper season.

Boxing Day saw the most camper arrivals, as people set themselves up to welcome 2016 in the great outdoors.

Holiday Parks Association chief executive Fergus Brown says many camping grounds are already packed out.

"The fantastic weather, the cheap price of petrol and the good feeling overall about the economy is giving people that confidence to get out and have a good time," he says.

Mr Brown says campers who are late to the party may still find a space if they shop around online.
