Because of our fantastic location on the shores of Lough Dan and in the heart of the Wicklow Mountains we encourage everyone that comes to Lough Dan to use it as a base camp to explore the area. Our philosophy can be summed up as “Pitch & Get Out” into wild Wicklow and re-connect with nature. Don’t limit yourself to the on-site activities or by running the usual bases when there is so much else on offer. Pitch your tent, grab an altar fire and a picnic table and check out the whole range of stuff you can do in the surrounding area. We call these the “Gateway” activities and you can find out about them on this websites “activities” section. They include mountain biking, all sorts of hill walking, wild camping, walking the Wicklow Way day or night, mountain top bivvying, night hikes and mountain navigation.
Information on these and all other activities can be found on this website’s “activities” section or from the campsite office/staff.
