Our campsite is our pride and joy, allowing young people to experience the joys of an open fire and a night under the stars, in a safe environment. Crawfordsburn has two camping fields each serviced with fresh running water and their own toilet and shower blocks. You can sleep your way, be that a tent in the main field, bivvy in a forest or hammocking between the trees. We also have camping pods spotted around the site.
