Please bring with you all that you need for your stay.
Lighting on site is limited so a torch is essential. You’ll also need to bring along your own toilet roll and soap. Masks should be worn in indoor areas, including the toilet blocks.

Other community groups are welcome to book the site at all other times.

We don't have any camping equipment - can we stay?
At the Biblins site we have Camp Koodoo, which provides everything you need for a group of up to 36 campers! And we also have The Burrow – which is a fantastic undercover sleeping accommodation for up to 19 people. For a warm summer evening, the roof even slides back! The Burrow booking also includes a small area for camping for groups who have a few of their own tents, which potentially gives the opportunity for those who haven’t camped before to give it a try – the best of both worlds!
We’ll do whatever we can to enable your group to stay at the Biblins, so if you have any questions, please do get in touch!
Can we have a campfire?
The camp-fire is perhaps one of the most memorable parts of any camp and one of things that often public campsites don’t offer – so many children have never had the experience of toasting marshmallows around a communal campfire.
Firewood is available on-site, with a dedicated sawing and splitting areas by the warden’s cabin. Please ensure that you add this to your booking.
You’ll need to bring a saw, please ensure your fire stays within the existing pit boundary.
Please do not forage for wood in the surrounding forest and DO NOT attempt to light any fires within the woods.
The forest is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and needs to be protected.
Ensure that BBQs are kept of the ground. Bricks are available if needed.
Can I bring my dog?
Only registered assistance dogs will be allowed to camp or stay in any of the buildings at Biblins.
Along the public footpath you will find dog walkers – all dogs should be kept on a lead and owners should pick up after their dogs. Please report any irresponsible dog owners to the on-site warden.
Can we bring a Caravans, Camper van or Motor homes?
Biblins is primarily a tent camping site.
Access to the site is not suitable for caravans or motor homes. We do not have hard standing pitches, chemical toilet disposal or electric hook up.
Small campers may stay on site, please let us know when making your booking.
Do you have Electric Hook Ups or Wifi?
We run “off grid” so it’s back to nature. We have a number of solar panels around the site which provide energy for lighting the toilet and shower blocks, but there is no electric hook up or wifi.
If you need an electric point for medical equipment please let us know.
Do you have phone phone signal?
Please note that there is no reliable mobile phone signal on site. Network signal is available at the King Arthur’s Cave car park, at the top of the access track.
Where are the showers?
Showers are situated by each of the toilet blocks. Please note, there is no shower in the burrow.
