Camp With Us

The Ross Rowing Club Campsite

 

Prices and booking

RRC provides the perfect setting to rest while on a paddling trip down the Wye.   We are right on the river and very close to the market town of Ross-on-Wye.

This is a great back to nature experience for anyone who loves the water and the outdoors.

Pitches

The campsite is spread over the rowing club lawns and adjacent fields.  We have no problem accommodating groups of 30 or more.  In fact during our rowing regatta we manage to accommodate over 1000.

We are happy to accept campervans and carvans,  but we do not have electric hook ups available.

Pitches are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. We also have designated areas depending if you are with a scout group or D of E.  Please see our Camping Terms.

*Please note that some pitches are further from the facilities than others (maximum 200m).

Landing Boats and Carpark

We offer parking and boat landing for canoe hire companies and groups.

Facilities

We allow access to our clubhouse for campers which have full wash/toilet facilities for men and women.  Details of how to access the club will be sent once you have paid.

*The showers & changing rooms will be out of bounds during junior rowing sessions. Please see our T&Cs for full details.

The Bar

The club bar is regularly open on Thursday and Friday nights and Sunday lunchtime, but may be open at other times too. Again, please ask when booking.  You are more then welcome to come in for a cold one.

Campfires

Currently we do not allow campfires.  If you would like to BBQ please be in touch after booking to discuss.

Sat Nav

The postcode for Sat Navs is HR9 7DD.
The campsite is directly on the River Wye , adjacent to market town of Ross-on-Wye. Within easy reach of the A40/M50.
Please be aware that this takes you to a park just off of Trenchard Street, at the side of Ross-on-Wye town centre.  Look for the iron post showing rowing club 290m.

Arriving on the Water

If you are coming by water, once you pass Backney Bridge (large stone pillars of an old railway bridge between Foy and Ross), you are approximately 2km from the clubhouse.   Once you pass this bridge please try and keep to the right hand side of the river. For one thing it gives a better approach to the Sheepwash rapids upstream of the A40 Bridge. Secondly, any Scullers/Rowers will be coming upstream on your left, with their backs to you, with no mirrors! It helps to avoid collisions!
