We are a clean, friendly, locally run campsite with plenty of outdoor space and a children's play park. The main building is open until 9pm most evenings with access to hot showers (at no extra charge) and toilets available 24 hours.
We are set in the Wray Valley, surrounded by rambling moorland with a gentle stream running through it; a secluded, peaceful setting for your camping holiday.
Dartmoor Camping is slightly different to your average campsite as we have a prestigious building with high quality facilities including a sports field, skate park, play area and function room available free of charge to campers. We also have a fully-equipped gym, tennis courts and bowling green which can be used for a small additional fee.
The campsite is a flat grassy field with good shelter all around. It is a safe environment for children and a short distance from all the activities you could need to keep you entertained.
We believe that all our extra facilities can create the perfect holiday for the whole family to enjoy.
We are situated a short distance from the village of Moretonhampstead where you will find plenty to see and do!
A short walk away there is a large outdoor swimming pool which is open through the summer months with plenty of sunbathing space. Next door you can find a fishery that's open all year round and has three lakes filled with trout. New to the village is the Sparrowhawk heritage site and art gallery where you can check out local artwork and learn more about the history of the area. The local area boasts plenty of picturesque walks and cycle trails where you'll find spectacular views of the valley and the surrounding Dartmoor National Park.
Moretonhampstead boasts a range of great restaurants, tearooms, pubs and shops including an award-winning butcher and delicatessen and a Michelin guide recommended restaurant. Alternatively there is a takeaway for those who fancy staying in. The town also has essential facilities such as a friendly information centre, a post office, a bank and a convenience store to ensure you have everything you need during your stay.
A little further out of town, with a regular bus service, you could venture out to the miniature pony centre where children get a chance to feed, ride and interact with many different animals.
Or if you prefer a more relaxing day out, The Luxury Spa Hotel and Sporting Estate Bovey Castl" is a short bus ride or drive away. Non-residents are welcome to use the leisure and spa facilities or book a round of golf.

Not a happy camper. 6 Aug 2014
Darren_w (Family with young children, 1 review) Confirmed
From the manager...
We are sorry that you had an unpleasant experience whilst staying with us; however it is very difficult to Police the building 24 hours a day whilst trying to achieve affordable camping, however there is CCTV inside and outside the building 24 hours a day.
Unfortunately you didn't discover the camping showers which are male and female just inside the back door. All shower and changing areas have adequate locker facilities.
Even though the push button showers do cause some people inconvenience, they are part of our environmental statement not to waste water and not to heat excessive water.
We take all feedback seriously and strive to improve the facilities for camping. Thank you very much for taking the time to give us this helpful feedback.
