How to Use an amiibo at the Campsite

Use an amiibo to Add New Villagers


By using an amiibo with the Nook Stop in Resident Services, you can call a Villager to come to the Campsite. Then, you'll be able to invite that Villager to come and live on your Island.

What You Can Do at the Campsite

Invite new Villagers to your Island

Occasionally, visitors will come to stay at your campsite. If you have less than the maximum number of Villagers (8 total), you'll be able to invite these visitors to become Villagers on your Island. Be sure to add a Villager when you find someone who suits your island's style!

Get a Housing Kit from Tom Nook


If you invite a visitor at the Campsite to live on your Island and then talk to Tom Nook, he will give you a Housing Kit. You will need to pay 10,000 Bells to place this house somewhere on the Island. When the new Villager moves in, you will receive 1,000 Miles as a reward for finding a new Villager.
