camping at oktoberfest


oktoberfest is exclusively for those that pre-book...

If you don't pre-book a pitch you will not be able to buy tickets on arrival, although passengers staying on booked pitches can be paid for on arrival.  Tickets sell out in advance each year and there are a limited number of electric hookups at The River Dart Country Park. These also sell out very quickly - so be organised

Pitch Sizes:

Pitches are approximately 7m x 7m. This is ample space for a campervan, an awning and or Caravan. If this is not enough room for what you intend to bring, you will need to book another pitch.

Club bookings/Group bookings:

If you're with a club or a group of friends and you all want to camp together it is really important you let us know. There is a box you can fill out when booking, please add this information to this box so we can do our best to allocate you all together.

To ensure we are able to camp you all together, we strongly recommend that you all book your tickets/pitches around the same time and state clearly in the booking process that you wish to camp together. Quoting a club name or group name/surname is very useful. It can be difficult to site groups of friends together if there is a long time between bookings, or if some members forget to state they wish to camp as part of your group. We do our very best to put everyone together, but if they are not booked around the same time we can't guarantee it.
If you are a big group and have further requirements, please contact us directly –

Electric Hook Up:

Electric hook up pitches are always in high demand. Unfortunately we don't have an unlimited amount of these pitches so to give as many people a fair chance you can only book one electric pitch per person/email address.

Thursday & Sunday night camping:

If you want to extend your weekend you can also stay on Thursday night and/or Sunday. The cost of this is £15 per pitch. 
These tickets can also be purchased online.

Pitch Allocation:

Your tickets will be emailed to you directly after you have completed your booking to the email address you booked under.
Pitch numbers and camping allocations will then be allocated one month prior to the event and will be added to your booking. This is to help us satisfy the requirements of as many of you as possible, as we get a lot of group and club bookings. To find out your pitch number please make sure you check your booking before you make your way to Oktoberfest.
We firstly fill the pitches in Fields 1 - 6 and once these are full we allocate bookings to the Picnic Meadow and Lower Riverside, which for the exception of a few clubs, is un-allocated camping. So it's just a case of rocking up and finding a space to camp for the weekend.


Day entry is available on Saturday or Sunday. All the parks amazing facilities will be open as well as the extra entertainment we put on. Please note that this is predominantly a camping event. Friday is just for camping so there's no day entry on Friday.
Please note that day visitor prices are charged at the standard River Dart Country Park peak season day entry rates.
