Camping is one of the most popular ways for people to enjoy the spectacular surroundings of the National Park and brings many visitors every year.
New byelaws covering camping and firelighting in four ‘Camping Management Zones’ around lochshore areas are now in effect from March to September.
Between March and September, anyone wishing to camp or stay overnight in a motorhome in these areas must book a permit or stay in a campsite. There is no change to camping outside of these zones.
The byelaws aim to improve the experience of those coming to camp in, and relieve pressures on, some of our most popular lochshore locations.
We are also providing 300 camping spaces within the National Park through camping permit areas and informal campsites including a brand new campsite at Loch Chon.
Camping permits will cost £3 per tent or motorhome per night and can be booked online in advance so we are encouraging anyone coming to camp to plan ahead.
Our focus just now is on making everyone fully aware of how the byelaws work and of all the camping options available to them.
We have created a brand new section of our website covering all the different ways to camp in the National Park including a helpful destination guide to each area and online booking system for camping permits. See more at www.lochlomond-trossachs.org/camping
We have also developed a range of printed materials including ‘Camping in the National Park’ leaflets, maps and FAQs which are provided at key visitor locations and are available on request for businesses to share with their customers.
