Camping Info just came across this offer in the Sun newspaper and thought some of you may be interested.
"HERE'S the holiday bargain of a lifetime - you can enjoy a night under the stars by camping from just Â£1 with The Sun!
We've teamed up with loads of parks across the UK to offer all our readers the chance to camp out from just Â£1 per pitch, per night, in August, September and October.
Plus you can claim free nights* in August at selected sites.
Booking couldn't be easier, just choose your park, call them direct and mention the Sun Tent & Touring Caravan offer and tell them when you want to go and they will confirm availability.
Then cut out the tokens printed in The Sun from Saturday 1st to Saturday 8th August.
You will need one token from The Sun for each night you book and you will need to present these on arrival at your park."
"Go in August and many of the parks will give you an extra night absolutely free when you book a minimum number of nights at brochure price.
Check our park listings to see how many nights you need to book to get your free night. It could be as few as two!
During August, expect to pay from £5 per night for a basic pitch, from £12 per night for a pitch with electric hook up or from £36 per night for a superior pitch.
Prices do vary from park to park so be sure to check at the time of booking."
"If choosing a park on the Isle of Wight, we've got a ferry good deal for you with Red Funnel that could save you as much as 50% off normal return crossing prices.
For holidays in September and October prices start at just £34 return when booked online or £39 return by telephone.
For August, prices start at just £42 return online and £47 return by phone.
Once you've made your park booking, details of how to book our great crossing offer will be sent to you by your park.
Please note, prices are per pitch, per night."
This seems like an ideal excuse to go camping. Even if the site is fairly local to you.
