A truly peaceful place to connect with the outdoors and nature. Friendly and knowledgeable volunteers. We spent about 3 hours there watching birds and other wildlife. A great experience to share or be alone.

Sorry Connor, you wouldn’t be allowed to camp at RSPB Burton but if you google camp sites in the area you should come up with a place to camp. Hope you are successful and enjoy your visit!
