Camping at Squirrel Wood

Squirrel Wood Scout Campsite has 20 individual camping pitches which are positioned to maximise privacy and practicality. Squirrel Wood can cater for up to 1500 people weather Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Guides or other Youth groups.

Alter Fires

Alter fires provide a fantastic way to have a fire to cook on that is off the floor. Squirrel Wood has a alter fires that can be taken onto any pitch.

A number of our pitches also have fire pits which provide an area for backwoods style cooking and for smaller camp fires.


The majority of pitches back onto the woods making wide games and backwoods camping easy.

We also offer true backwoods where you can go out into the woods, and find your own campsite. To find out more about backwoods camping, visit out backwoods page.

Showers and Toilets

The toilet block is straight down the track making it easy for everyone to find. It has male, female and disabled facilities with hot and cold water.

Showers are available at a cost of 50p per shower. Make sure you note this on your booking as the showers are only opened on request.

Camp Fire Circle

The Squirrel Wood Campfire Circle is available for all site users to run a camp fire. There is plenty of wood around the site (chopping down of wood is not allowed without prior permission, see code of conduct).  The campfire circle is located centrally to the site so that it is easily accessible from all campsites and the Squirrel Lodge.

Disabled Camping

Our Grey Scout pitch has two disabled parking spaces alongside and the pitch itself has a plastic mesh throughout so wheelchair users can gain full access and camp.

Pitches are allocated on arrival to ensure we can rest them and keep them to the superb standard our regular campers are used to. When you book we ask you to nominate a preferred campsite, we will look at the availability of your requested site and if it is not available allocate you a similar site.
