WATER SPORT CAMPSITES
Looking for somewhere that combines camping with water activities? We don’t blame you! There’s nothing better than enjoying the great outdoors and having fun doing some exhilarating water sports. We’ve done some research and narrowed down our favourite spots, so you don’t have to! So, what are you waiting for? Pack your swimsuit and tent - it’s time for camping!
Barefoot Campsites, Oxfordshire
Looking to wake up and dive straight in? If so, Barefoot is for you. Barefoot is situated in Oxfordshire, right beside the River Thames. Campers can start the day with a wild swim at three small riverside sites near Oxford which are next to a safe stretch of the Thames. Those who don’t fancy taking a dip can hire canoes! The sites offer back-to-basics camping, with no electricity, just gas-fired showers and composting toilets. Campfires and barbecues are encouraged. Visitors can take their own tents and small campervans, alternatively book a bell tent or log pod.
Ace Hideaways, Moray
This site is for the adventurer! Ace Hideaways offers activities on the Findhorn river: these include canyoning, tubing, cliff jumping, rafting, kayaking and fly-fishing! There are also gorgeous walks, a disc golf course and paintballing. There’s an outdoor kitchen with two fire pits, woodland showers and composting toilets.
Pentewan Sands, Cornwall
How does a campsite with a private beach and pitches with sea views sound? Heavenly? We think so too! For just that, head to Pentewan Sands. This site offers sailing, waterskiing, windsurfing, kayaking, paddle boarding and more. It also hosts Scuba Fest, a three-day diving event, each spring. There are two indoor pools, tennis courts and a cycle trail. It is open to tents, caravans and motorhomes, and there are mobile homes to rent. It’s almost too good to be true!
Raring to go? Us too! So, whether you fancy scuba diving lessons or kayaking, water-skiing or more tame dingy sailing, there are plenty of options to choose from all over the UK. Where will you be diving in?
