Wild(ish) Camping at RSPB Fen Drayton Lakes

May 26, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - July 2, 2023 @ 6:00 pm

Variable costs

A unique opportunity for groups of up to 30 to camp overlooking the peaceful Ferry Lagoon – one of the nature reserve’s most impressive lakes.

As part of this unique experience, your group will have sole access to the ‘Discovery Zone’ and its resources, allowing you to immerse yourselves in discovering the wildlife that calls the reserve home. For children and adults alike, lake dipping, den building and bug hunting will keep your group entertained all day until it’s time to gather around the fire for dinner and marshmallows. For those with enough energy to stay up, Fen Drayton Lakes is a great spot for star-gazing. There also 10 miles of walking routes on and around the reserve and many more beyond.

The firepit with cooking grill means you needn’t bother with your camping cooker, and the on-site dry compost loo means your group will be self-sufficient. Vehicle access to the site for dropping things off makes it easy to bring the essentials like food and water.

From Friday afternoons to Sunday evenings. Please contact us at Fen Drayton Lakes to discuss your group’s requirements and to confirm availability and pricing.  07703 886657
