Onsite Facilities

 This is not a ready-made campsite.  So onsite facilities are very limited! There are public toilets, water point. However the shower block is located 1 mile away. We would suggest bringing a bike. These reasons are why we discounted the event entry and camping prices for 2017.

There are various options for food and refreshments on site, rutland water beach, Bugtopia zoo, Childrens play area, mini golf and in the near vacinity they have a aqua park, climbing wall, nature reserve, cycle hire and various routes and cafe’s.

There is a designated family area for those who wish to be in a quieter location, and that option is available when you arrive on site.

Please familiarise yourself with the fire safety points around the site which are there in case of emergency – BUT PLEASE DO NOT TAMPER WITH THE EQUIPMENT – it is there for your safety!

Dogs are allowed on site – no problem. They just have to be kept under control, on a lead and are not allowed in the water. There is an “off the lead” dog walking area at Sykes Lane though.
