Camping – Where You Can Camp

This page is about CAMPING along the Lavender Federation Trial and Lavender Cycling Trail.
Walkers and Cyclists wishing to find safe camping spots can use this list as a rough guide.

Please – if you find a great place that is not on this list – LET US KNOW
and the same goes for if you find something listed here that is no longer available or an option (please let us know – thank you!)

Various rules apply – quite often this is to book with a local council before you camp.
this information is to be taken ‘as a guide only’ as various sites may be closed at times,
So we suggest planning ahead and booking ahead. Remember also that WATER can be the main issue in some sections.

New Information has come to hand about some sites which are listed here – NOT BEING AVAILABLE TO CAMP.
As we wish this to be an informative guide, rather than remove the listings we will mark them as “No Camping” so that you are aware of the restrictions.

Don’t forget to check our Accommodation Listing as well, it has some great alternatives if camping is not available in the area.
