How can I wild camp?
- You can backpack camp on some parts of Dartmoor. This is by carrying your own equipment as part of your walk and staying one or two nights max. You can only do this in certain areas (see map below).
- No overnight stays in vehicles, campervans or motorhomes.
- No large tents or large groups camping. Find a campsite on Dartmoor.
To make your visit as safe and enjoyable as possible, it's important to plan ahead. See our latest updates on car parks, toilets and general guidance for visiting the National Park.
Backpack (wild) camping is only allowed in purple shaded areas, please zoom in on the map to find your location. You must camp at least 100m from the road, making sure you are out of sight and leave no trace. For more information see the byelaws.
