Animal Crossing Wiki

The campground (Japanese: オートキャンプ場 Auto Camping Site) is a location available in New Leaf, though only after the game has been updated to Welcome amiibo. It is run by Harvey, and can be found on the far left or far right of the player's town up a hill through the cliff face. Throughout the day, Harvey can be seen doing different things.

Several public works projects, including a fire pit, two log benches, a hammock, and a water pump, appear in the campground.


The campground has two main uses. The first is a small shop run by Harvey that has two exclusive items on display that switch out at random (most commonly from Happy Home Designer). The second is the presence of two RVs containing villagers and special characters who can be spoken to, and three pieces of their furniture a day can be purchased. Any purchases made in the campground must be made with MEOW Coupons.

Most villagers who can be invited to the campground through Wisp are able to move into the player's town upon request. When a villager is asked to move into the town and when the villager limit has been reached, the player must select someone to move out, the desired villager will then talk to this one and they will move out. Villagers will not be able to move in if certain special events are occurring in the player's town.

Special characters can only be requested to move into the campground if their corresponding amiibo figure is scanned with Wisp. Some special characters do not have an amiibo figure and will appear in the campground on random days. Special characters who cannot move to the campground will have the option for the player to receive their picture when their card is scanned with Wisp.

Any villagers who are not part of the Welcome amiibo update (don't have an RV on their card) cannot be invited to the campground but are able to move into the player's town when their card is scanned with Wisp.

In addition to villagers with Welcome amiibo cards, the following special characters and villagers can appear in the campground:
