Don’t miss out: there’s only a few camping spaces left.
Did you know? You can camp inside Avon Valley Adventure and Wildlife Park this summer.
Due to COVID-19, the Avon Valley park, situated in Keynsham, Bristol, has not opened fully in 2020.
So instead, Avon Valley is giving people the unique chance to camp inside its gates throughout August.
Campers will have access to stunning scenery, with animals and socially-distanced fun right on their doorstep.
Plus, guests have the option to 'Camp with Dinosaurs', as Avon Valley welcomes three dinos for visitors to meet and play with. Staycation, anyone?
The Avon Valley Summer Camp is brand new for 2020, and there are only a few spaces left. Here’s what you need to know.
The campsite has contactless check in
Campsites and amenities
Avon Valley has several campsites available across its 60-acre park - take a look. But spaces are limited to keep campers safe.
The park will host only 71 camping spaces at any one time – meaning each family will get nearly an acre of land!
Each pitch will have its own private loo, and there are warm, outdoor showers shacks overlooking the Muntjac Deer enclosure, that can be booked for use.
On-site, The Woodland Kitchen will serve up takeaway pizza available for pre-order to be collected nightly, and The Outdoor Deck bar open will be open every evening.
The park’s in-house coffee shop and bakery will open for takeaway pre-orders from 7:00 to 10:00 daily, and a small convenience shop will be selling essential items.
Camping with Dinosaurs
During a stay, guests will have the option to have a roaring time ‘Camping with Dinosaurs.’ The park has three dinosaurs to meet and play with.
Troy the Trex, Vivian the Verlocorapter and Tamika the Triceratops will be hanging out in their pens. But watch out: tend to get out and wander around the park too!
At weekends, each camp area will be offered time to visit a dinosaur show.
There’s three shows - Meet a T-Rex, Meet a Raptor and Meet a Triceratops – and they are private for campers.
They operate between 9:00 and 11:00, and 15:30 and 18:00, on Saturdays, Sundays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
More things to do
The campsite has access to the River Avon, where campers can go wild swimming. The site is also located 400m from the main Bristol to Bath cycle track.
Campers can book to enjoy water sports during their visit, including paddle boarding and family canoeing.
Inside the park, a range of activities will be open, including animal feeding and walks, mini-golf and the climbing wall. Check out the full list here.
