Dartmoor Wild Camping Courses

Dartmoor wild camping has been renamed Dartmoor backpack camping by Dartmoor National Park Authority and we agree. Wild camping is a fantastic way to enjoy the environment but it should always be done in a manner that protects that environment. If you fancy heaving your rucksack onto your back and setting off (not too far) to a lonely Dartmoor location, this is the course for you. We can offer help, advice and loads of fun, and we even have equipment available for you to borrow. Find out how to wild camp on Dartmoor the right way and open up a whole new world of exploration and outdoor enjoyment.

“As part of a Dartmoor walking expedition, it is acceptable to backpack camp for one or two nights in some areas of open moorland, well away from roads or settlements using a ‘no impact’ approach. Planning and preparation is essential for this type of activity. This includes having the right equipment and navigational skills to survive safely ‘well away from civilisation’ for a couple of days, and crucially, knowing where you are permitted to camp.”
