Give your kids a taste of the wild in a fun, safe environment and a rare chance to see the woodlands come to life after most visitors go home.

Pitch your tent for three days and two nights of family adventure and activities at the heart of the landscape park.

Our family camping weekends take place twice a year, once in May half term and once in the summer holidays. Each year they become more popular, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

We are very proud of providing a quality camping experience for every family. Your £60 pitch price includes:

  • Gibside staff camping on site for your safety and questions
  • Games and bushcraft activities for all the family to get involved in
  • Live music, BBQ and bar (for parents) on Saturday evening
