There are some 300 acres of land allocated to camping. This makes SHELL ISLAND the biggest camp site in the UK, and the Biggest camping site in Europe. We do not allocate pitches, so you can therefore find your ideal pitch yourself. Unfortunately we only have a camping license and therefore cannot accept Caravans. On arrival to Shell Island, Campers must call in at The Reception office to check in. On arrival you will receive a Car pass and an information pack. Campers will only be admitted between 8.00 am and 8pm (9pm on Fridays). Accounts are to be paid on arrival or online through our booking service. You must have your own mode of transport, i.e a car. Groups arriving by train will not be permitted.
Campers may not pitch within 20 meters of another tent in the same field, unless prior agreement is reached with adjoining campers.
Campers are not allowed fires on the ground, on any part of the site/ sand dunes. Fires must be raised off the ground in a firebin or a B-B-Q, with an air gap in between.
With the site being so big, we have over 35 water points, 22 fire extinguisher points and over 4 miles of roads and tracks across the Island. We have a shower and toilet block centrally situated (including hot +cold basins).More toilet blocks have been added around the site, with festival type toilets now only in the sandunes (MAIN HOLIDAY SEASON ONLY). All other blocks have now been changed for modern block's complete with lighting. If you wish to camp further afield, then bring your own Portaloo. Elsan Disposal point available to the side of the main toilet block.
Shell Island is a Families and Couples Campsite. We do not accept Single Sex Groups/Groups, or Youngsters camping by themselves without parental supervision.
