Dartmoor Wild Camping

We have two main campsites available for wild camping on Dartmoor. Other sites are available on request should you desire to be further from civilisation. 

Riverside Campsite

  • Natural camping site.
  • Spans the Cowsic river with an ancient clapper bridge.
  • Peaceful and tranquil.
  • Sheltered from most winds.
  • Communal fire pit.
  • Nearby parking.
  • Boggy in places, insect repellant is highly advisable during warmer months and the river can become a raging torrent during high rainfall – please be very aware of this if you have children. 

Leat Campsite

  • Situated in a field alongside the Devonport Leat.
  • Well sheltered from the prevailing westerly wind.
  • Spectacular views across the surrounding moorland.
  • Communal fire pit.
  • Within 100 metres of vehicle access.


  • Untreated spring water is available from a tap near the farmyard.
  • Firewood and kindling are available to buy – please enquire when booking.
  • No other facilities are available.

Exclusive Use for Groups

Both our campsites are available for exclusive use by groups. Prior booking is essential – please contact us for more details.
