Important change to camping at Whitwell

Please see below from Rutland Watersports, we have attempted to negotiate a better deal but Rutland Watersports have rejected our approach therefore we advise you read below.

Competitor camping – normal fees are £17.50 per pitch per night.

All competitors wishing to camp must phone and pay in advance. The cost then for the weekends camping will be £25.00 for 2 or 3 nights (1 x nights camping will be £12.50 if paid in advance.) The campers will be checked in and issued a permit on arrival. Any persons arriving to camp who have not paid in advance will be required to pay the going rate of £17.50 per pitch per night.

The camping area will be checked and patrolled throughout the weekend and all campers will have to display their camping permit at all times.

The competitors camping will be in the normal grass area - however we would ask that all campers aim to be at Whitwell be no later than 10pm. If they arrive outside of this time they may be requested to move if it is deemed necessary.

Due to the weekend being a Bank Holiday Weekend - Under no circumstances are the campers to park in the car parks for their overnight stay. 

Non campers will need to pay the day rate for their parking, which is £6 per vehicle.

Anyone attempting to leave the site without a valid parking permit, at any time during the weekend, whether camping or not, will be asked to turn around at the barrier and proceed to a pay station to pay for their ticket – or alternatively, campers will need to report to the Watersports Centre with their permit, where their tickets will be authorised for exit.

If anyone loses their car parking ticket they will have to press the “lost ticket” button at the pay booths and pay the relevant fee.



To simply state that they were part of the event when at the exit barrier, will not authorise them to leave, it is imperative that they have a valid ticket.
