(Tents and camping fees are not included).
The camping can be organised by calling 01746 861515 (Unicorn Inn camping at Hampton Loade). The Unicorn Inn offers riverside camping BUT it can be noisy at peak times and is perhaps not the most suitable option for families. However you don’t need to drive anywhere at the end of Day 1 and the beginning of Day 2 if you camp at the Unicorn Inn.
Other camping options; if you prefer an alternative campsite which is possibly quieter with better facilities there are sites available nearby, however this option will require you driving from the Day 1 canoe finish point at Hampton Loade and returning to the Unicorn Inn the next morning.
PLEASE CHECK WHEN BOOKING THAT YOUR CARS ARE LEFT IN THE RIGHT PLACE FOR YOUR CAMPSITE CHOICE.
