Point Field is The Sharpham Trust's campsite bordering the River Dart - although it's not the easiest place to get to by road (better by canoe).

Camping at Point Field

The site available for camping at Sharpham is Point Field, (Ashprington Point), with room to pitch up to 10-12 small tents.

There is a slight slope on which you can pitch more tents (although be aware that close to the water's edge may be prone to flooding - check the tides before pitching there).

Facilities are limited and the site is suited to people who like their camping on the wilder side. There is however running water and two compost toilets and an option to have a fire.

Please not that access to the site by vehicles is not straightforward. The lane to the campsite is not a surfaced road, but should be accessible by car when dry and with care and at your own risk.

The site borders the River Dart and is great for a stopover while on a canoeing trip.

Be delivered to the site - without your own canoe!

Our partners at Canoe Adventures can

  • Deliver you to and collect you from Point Field via canoe. They can collect and drop off from Totnes (where there is a railway station), Stoke Gabriel or Tuckenhay and their canoes have space for a reasonable amount of camping gear.
  • Offer canoe trips from Point Field in long boats which can accommodate up to 6-12 people each.
