However, we also want to make all campers aware of the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide poisoning occurs when gas or charcoal (or fuels like them) fail to fully combust due to a lack of oxygen in their surroundings. The stories we have seen on campsites around this subject are generally down to campers cooking inside tents, or leaving a gas burner on inside the tent for heat. Carbon monoxide is undetectable by smell or taste; which is why many may incorrectly think that they are safe to do this. If you inhale enough Carbon Monoxide the outcome can be fatal.
In smaller doses, carbon monoxide can cause symptoms similar to flu or food poisoning. Symptoms to look out for look out for include: dizziness, headache, nausea and drowsiness
To avoid accidents; follow these simple rules:
NEVER cook inside a tent or enclosed camping spaces.
If you need a sheltered cooking area, consider a gazebo or a tent porch with sufficient air circulation and ventilation.
NEVER use gas stoves/fuel burners to heat your tent when cold.
All gas powered items need plenty of ventilation to prevent producing carbon monoxide.
To stay warm, make sure you layer your clothing, and pick up a warmer sleeping bag.
NEVER operate petrol/diesel powered engines in confined/enclosed spaces.
Can I bring my live-in vehicle?
We currently do not have the facilities to accommodate live-in vehicles, but there are many campsites in the local area that are suitable.
Can I park my car near my tent?
