Camping for motorhomes, caravans and tents is also available on site but must be booked directly through Pembrey Country Park campsite.
You can still camp and there are several options:
1 – Purchase a tent camping ticket as an additional extra with your entry. This is per tent pitch, not person. It covers Friday to Sunday and also includes car parking over the weekend (more below). Basic facilities included such as water, portable toilets and showers. You will not be able to park next to your tent, but it will be within eyesight and no more than 100 metres away.
2 – Stay on-site at the Pembrey Country Park campsite. Options for tents, caravans and camper-vans with lots of electric hookups and excellent facilities. Booking is open from Wednesday December 18th and due to the event taking place within school holiday we strongly recommend booking early. The official on-site camping also includes a car vehicle pass for the duration of your stay.
3 – Caravan club site just outside the park gates. More info here.
There is no option to pay at the gate, only at the pay stations within the park.
Due to the park charges we recommend car sharing wherever possible to reduce costs.
