Our facilities

Toilets and showers

The site has three toilet and shower blocks. All purpose-built with individual cubicles accessed from the outside. We also have larger, accessible toilet and shower facilities.


We don't have electric hook ups so we recommend bringing battery powered lanterns and power packs to recharge phones. We have USB charge points.

Fire Pits

We have fire pits available for hire. You’re welcome to bring your own off-ground barbecues and fire pits. We have bricks available to raise them. Firewood and charcoal are available to buy.

Camp shop

Our pop-up shop stocks all the essential food, drinks, snacks and camping essentials! We sell locally sourced bread, bacon, burgers, eggs, and sausages. We also have ice creams, ice cold drinks, sweets and snacks.

Camp cafe

Our campsite cafe serves hot breakfast rolls, fresh croissants, barista coffee, ice-cream and soft drinks

Water & Washing Up Stations

There are plenty of drinking water taps around the site. We’ve also provided a few washing up areas, so if you would like to use these you can.

USB Charging & Ice Block Freezer

We have a few USB charging points for essentials. We have a freezer for ice packs only. Please do not use this for anything else.

Recycling & Bins

We are passionate about the environment. We have a recycling station at the main entrance to the camp so you can recycle any rubbish.

No caravans, trailer tents or motorhomes

Due to low bridge, tight bends, and steep tracks, Basecamp is not accessible to towing vehicles or motorhomes over 2.7m high.

No electric hookups

We're an off-grid site so we don't have any electric hook ups. Bring a torch, a battery pack and a sense of adventure. We do have a few USB chargers if you need to charge your phone.

No chemical waste

We have plenty of toilets, showers and washing up areas. There's no need for you to bring your own. If you have onboard facilities, please empty them at home.
