NW200
« on: February 04, 2014 »

Hello all,
I'm not sure if this has been covered else where on the forum.
The North West is coming up soon, and I'm trying to find info/recommendations for campsites near the track. any info would be much appreciated.

Cheers Johno.

Sorry Johnoj,

Not sure how I missed your post... Where are you travelling from?

I lived in Portrush as a student for 4 years about 16 years ago and the East Strand was an excellent spot but it's probably all changed now and camping there has probbaly been stopped.

I found this official campsite after a wee Google Search which might be useful for you but I will do another bit of research for you tomorrow when I'm not on the Scotch and hopefully get back to you.

I'm fairly local, also lived in Coleraine for a few years, so I know the area quite well. The last few years we've just commuted, I've always noticed plenty of tents in fields along the main Portrush / Coleraine Rd. I would rather avoid the official camp site, but would like something secure enough where we can leave some gear and the tents up. Looking at staying Thursday - Sunday.

Cheers Johno.
