Camping and motorhomes

Camping and motorhomes


Dartmoor offers many camping style opportunities, especially if you are looking for a wilder stay compared to traditional hotels and B&B’s.

There are friendly farm campsites, rustic camping barns, isolated bunk houses and fantastic hostels together with huts and pods where you can enjoy Dartmoor’s dark night skies.

Campsites are also advertised in the Enjoy Dartmoor magazine and on the Visit Dartmoor website.

If you would like to backpack camp (wild camp) please see our camping map on where this is permitted on Dartmoor.


If you want to enjoy Dartmoor in your motorhome or campervan, the size of your vehicle may mean some roads are off limits because of narrow roads and small bridges.

Please don’t rely on satellite navigation systems to get you to your destination, but use the helpful Coach Driver and Motorhome Guide for Dartmoor map (PDF).

You cannot park your motorhome or campervan overnight in laybys, at the roadside, or in car parks under National Park Byelaws.
