Camping

The campsite has 10 managed camping grounds, each with their own qualities. Some are open and have plenty of space, while others are more sheltered. Much of the site is quite wild, and camping can be arranged in alternative areas for more ‘wild’ or ‘survival’ style camps.

In addition to two main campfire circles, campfires are permitted on individual sites. There is plenty of wood on the ground, as well as areas with a lot of thin, dead standing trees. Care should be taken in these areas but it can be good sawing practise for scouts. We sometimes have piles of wood available to use. Please check with a member of site staff before using these piles if they are on a site.

At the southern end of the site we have 2 playing fields. These are available for everyone to use. If required, you may be able to book one of them for a large camp.

There are taps for water access across the site, and some camping grounds have a sink and/or very basic outdoor kitchen setup. The toilet block is available for all campers.
