River Dart Country Park is the ideal place for outdoor fun and adventure. The campsite offers everything that camping in the great outdoors is all about: nights under canvas, open air cooking and perhaps even a little star gazing - in a superb location on the edge of the River Dart.
Facilities include a modern, well-equipped amenity blocks, with free hot water and showers. There is a cover washing-up area and a laundry room (coin operated). Leisure facilities include a tennis court (bring your own rackets) and a toddlers' beach. Guests can also enjoy a quick bite at the on-site Old Sawmill café along with refreshments and delicious Sunday Carvery.
The campsite is located near by River Dart Adventures where guests are invited to use the facilities. Dare Devil activities (subject to extra cost, payable on arrival) include water zorbs, high ropes course, indoor climbing wall, canoeing and mega zipwire.
Also on show is our Archimedes screw which provides the park with all of its electricity for 80% of the year and our new biomass heating system which produces hot water for the amenity blocks, making your holiday very green.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
