Camping - Cartmel Racecourse


The designated camping area is located at the southern end of the racecourse, within and just outside of the Course Enclosure which offers racegoers the opportunity to camp close to the action. Please note, campers located close to the running rail may get wet if the track requires irrigation.  

Camping is split into the following packages:

Camping for full season, including camping pitches for all nine racedays plus two annual membership badges (granting Paddock Enclosure admission for all racedays plus more than 40 reciprocal racedays at other tracks in Britain and Ireland).

Camping for individual meetings for example: both days of the July meeting or both days of the August Bank Holiday weekend

Camping for individual racedays for example: Totepool Cumbria Crystal Cup Day or North West Evening Mail Picnic Day.

A 2 night minimum-stay applies to all bookings during Cartmel race-meetings. Customers may book for all race-days if they wish. Both the 2 and 4 night camping packages include Course admission tickets. (With the exception of the Concert Race Day which includes an all areas admission ticket).

A CHILD CAMPING TICKET (FOR CHILDREN AGED 5 - 17) MUST BE PURCHASED FOR ALL CHILDREN CAMPING. Child camping tickets are £10 per child for each 2 night stay and can be purchased online when booking your pitch or by calling 015395 36340. Admission to the races for children under 18 is free. (With the exception of a Concert Race Day when there will be admission prices for any children aged 13-17 and a ticket will be required for all ages. Please take care to read the ticket description at checkout and ensure you book the correct camping package for your child(ren)).

We welcome motor-homes, caravans and tents, although almost all of the camping space provided is on grass – parking on hard-standing can not be guaranteed. We will provide access to water, toilets, porta-showers and an Elsan point. There will be no electricity supply available to campers.

The amount of pitches available is limited, so early booking is recommended.

Prices are per unit, with Course admission for 2 adults included in each unit. Additional adults will be charged accordingly.
