Saturday & Sunday only – parking will be in the day visitor area at the entrance to the show. Please note we are not open to day visitors on Friday, you'll need to purchase Weekend Camping tickets for this. Gates close for day visitors at 8pm on Saturday and 5pm on Sunday.
We are sorry but weekend camping vehicle passes are pre-book only will NOT be available at the gate.
Any adults without a weekend wristband and pass for their vehicle will be turned away. Children 16 and under are free of charge and those without wristbands can be given at the gate (maximum of 3 children per adult).
All Camping is PRE-BOOK ONLY
There are now four camping areas to choose from. Please tick the appropriate section on the booking page when confirming your ticket.
‘Home is where you park it’ Camping
We’ll show you a big field, you park in it where you like… it's as simple as that! If you have a large awning, van and trailer, or want to save spaces for your friends to camp alongside you, then this is the camping area you need to book.
'Family home is where you park it’ Camping
This will be positioned away from the evening entertainment area and is intended for families with young children who have a large awening, need a big area, have a van and trailer, or want to save spaces for your friends to camp alongside. There is a noise curfew in this area of 10pm; after this time all music and engines must be switched off completely.
This will be positioned alongside the main road through the event, allowing the easiest access to all facilities. Please have your blue badge on display.
VW Club Camping
A designated area will be for club camping, meaning you can be close to your mates. If your club is coming en-masse to the show, and you wish to reserve an area, this needs to be done prior to the show.
If you have any requests (we are open to suggestions) or want to book in a new club not currently listed, please get in touch with us on 01244 881895 or email: email@example.com.
Please note: There is a noise curfew on all campsites (Family Camping aside) of Midnight. Our Family Camping area has an earlier curfew (for obvious reasons) of 10.00pm. After this time, ALL music and engines must be switched off completely. Anyone found breaching this will be asked to leave the grounds by security.
Toilet & Water facilities can be found in all camping areas.
There will also be limited shower facilities on site due to limited water pressure on site at Weston Park. Professional security & medical teams will be present all weekend for your safety. We advise bringing disposable

Yes, you may bring your pets, provided they are not dangerous or poisonous and can be housed with your camping unit. Pets should be kept under control at all times (eg. dogs on a lead except in the designated exercise area). Any mess made by your pet must be cleaned up by you. If it is not then you will be asked to leave and be barred from all future events.
Can I camp with my friends?
The only way to 100% guarantee that you will park/ camp with your friends is to turn up together. We have a 'Home Is Where You Park It' and 'Family Home Is Where You Park It' Camping Areas, so camp in here and save your mates a space or two if they turn up at different times. If you are in a VW club then get them to all book in Club Camping, therefore guaranteeing you are in the same area.

Can I use a barbecue?
Yes, provided no hot part of the barbecue touches the ground and it does not inconvenience other campers (eg. wind blowing smoke into their camping unit). Please do not take a barbecue inside a camper van, tent, or similar; in addition to the fire risk a barbecue gives off carbon-monoxide which can be fatal if inhaled.
How do I get my vehicle into the 'For Sale' area?
The vehicle sales area is open on Saturday and Sunday, please go to the information point for all of the details.
Why do Vehicle Passes have a corner cut out?
Vehicle Passes have a corner cut out of either the top right or top left. Don't worry this is intentional as is to identify if the vehicle is a VW Camper or not to our entrance team. Please have your vehicle pass stuck to your windscreen for arrival.
Why do you have to pay for Vehicle / Camping Passes?
We are charged for every camping vehicle / plot that is on the site. When Vehicle Passes were free we found that some campers were ordering more vehicle passes than they required – this in turn resulted in a lot of people missing out on the show as it meant we ran out of camping plots when we really shouldn't have.
Why do VW Camper Vans get a discount?
As the show has grown we really don't want to lose our roots as a VW bus show and we want to encourage more people to bring their bus with them on the day. If you are driving a VW bus to Camper Jam, specify this on the ticket page and you'll get a £10 discount applied to your cart and a special vehicle pass. If you turn up without a VW Camper Van and your discount vehicle pass you will be asked for the £10 difference on the day.
