Alan Rogers Review

River Dart Country Park is an award winning campsite based in Devon with excellent camping facilitates, generous pitches for touring caravan, tent, motorhome or motor caravan, and is the ideal holiday base for exploring the surrounding area. There are 280 individual pitches of a reasonable size and in different locations, some of which are slightly sloping. There are 138 pitches with electrical connections (10/16A) and 35 with hardstanding. All visitors to the site have free access to the extensive adventure playgrounds. There are also Dare Devil activities on site which include a high ropes course, mega zip wire, canoeing and kayaking – extra cost. There really is an adventure around every corner! 

Once part of a Victorian estate with mature woodland on the edge of Dartmoor in the beautiful Dart valley, the park features a variety of unusual adventure play equipment (e.g. a giant spider’s web) arranged amongst and below the trees, Lilliput Land for toddlers, Jungle Fun, woodland streams and a lake with a pirate ship for swimming, and inflatables, fishing and marked nature and forest trails – all free to campers except fishing. The River Dart Country Park offers a great range of adventure experiences suitable for campers of all ages.

Follow the brown tourist signs to the River Dart Country Park from the Peartree Junction on the A38 by Ashburton. Peartree junction is the second Ashburton junction when travelling from Exeter direction. Do not come off at the Linhay junction which takes you through the narrow streets of Ashburton – not ideal when towing a caravan!

If you are using satellite navigation, look out for our sign as you approach the park. Some sat navs can take you on a Dartmoor adventure ending up in a nearby field!
