Camping in Devon

Sleep under the stars on the south coast

Welcome to Devon

Devon should be high on any tourist’s list! With miles of unspoilt Devon coast, rustic villages and two National Parks, it's the ideal location for camping, whether you wish to explore the Jurassic coastline, the wilds of Dartmoor or the quaint towns and small cities which form the hub of the area.

Devon is known for its rolling hills, charming fishing villages and relaxed pace of life. The Jurassic Coast to the south is a World Heritage Site and filled with stunning scenery. With no less than five Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the rugged wilderness of Dartmoor to explore and a gateway to the English Riviera in the form of Torbay, it's no wonder so many people see Devon as the perfect place to get away from it all.

Why you should use our YHA campsites in Devon:

  • 24 hour access to hostel facilities
  • Picturesque gardens and grounds
