- Crew: can camp anywhere in the main camping area or the crew areas
Don't camp or park in the access lanes or pitch tents too close together in case the emergency services need access.
CAMPING UNDER TREES IS DANGEROUSMany of the trees are very old and branches often fall off without warning. You could easily be killed if one lands on you. If you still decide to camp under a tree leave at least a 3 meter gap from the trunk and understand that it's ENTIRELY AT YOUR OWN RISK.
CARS & CAMPERS - NEW GUIDELINES
Cars no longer need to drive onto the main campsite to drop of equipment
Park in the new Car Park as you enter the new main camping field and walk your gear to your campsite - nowhere is more than 100m away!
Never drive at more than 5mph - that includes crew
Live-in vehicles with a Camper Van Pass will be allowed in the Main Camping field and may camp alongside mates in tents - If your camper is really big please park at the edges of the field so you don't mess up everyone elses view
Do not drive on the campsite at all after dark
