Ross Rowing Club Camping is used by all persons at their own risk. Camping at the club only entitles you to access the camping and the access drive from the public road to the campsite itself. We are a busying rowing club and parents should ensure children are properly supervised at ALL times and not allowed to stray from the camping field.
Whilst we make every effort to ensure a safe campsite we cannot accept responsibility for your possessions or personal injuries sustained whilst on the property.
Your allocated area for camping is marked on the aerial shot of the club below.
Access to the Club House
There is a key safe on the wall next to the Boathouse doors. The code will be sent after booking. Please be sure to put the key back if you do have to use it (there may be other people about needing to use it!). If you need to unlock, or more importantly lock (site security) either of the gates, one to town side and one to the camping field, the key is in a further key safe on the post of one of the gates. The code will be sent after booking. Same thing applies re putting it back.
Please remove dirty footwear on entry to the clubhouse.
We are a small, friendly, club campsite so if you’re looking to have a party, to make excessive noise or disturb your camping neighbours then we are not the place for you. There is strictly no plugged in or loud music at any time.
We may accept bookings for stag or hen parties. Please let us know when you book.
Under 15s that are not accompanied by an adult are required to pay the full adult fee.
The campsite is located on a busy rowing club so please do not allow children (or adults) to stray outside the camping area boundaries.
There is a strict 5mph speed limit within the farm and camping field.
