For those looking for a trip close to home this summer, you can now enjoy a night or more under canvas on the peaceful banks of Gunwade Lake in Ferry Meadows at one of the two quiet campsites there, run by the team at Nene Outdoors. Campers can choose between a traditional pitch-only campsite 'The Glade' or the new bell tent campsite ‘Lakeview’.

‘Lakeview’ offers an easy camping experience, with 8 bell tents available to hire. Set on wooden decking platforms, the bell tents can each sleep up to six occupants and are simply furnished with floor matting and LED lighting. All you need to do is bring your own camping mat and bedding! ‘The Glade’ next door offers space for 10 small pitches where campers can pitch their own tents. Both campsites are perfect for families, have easy access to shower and toilet facilities at Nene Outdoors Watersports and Activity Centre and welcome dogs too. Private hire is also available for small groups or family gatherings.

Located in the heart of Ferry Meadows, these campsites are ideally situated to take advantage of all the exciting activities on offer at Nene Outdoors Watersports and Activity Centre and in the wider Park. They are also conveniently located close to Lakeside Kitchen and Bar and the soon to be opened Lakeside Farm Shop for breakfast and BBQ supplies.

Tent pitches or bell tents can be booked easily through the Nene Park website. Go our campsite page to find out more and make your booking.
