Vinegar Hill rainbow camping 2020/2021.

Vinegar Hill rainbow camping

Vinegar Hill has been a popular camping spot for Gay and Lesbian people and their families over Christmas and the New Year holiday period in the height of summer since 1977. But it won't be quite the same this year:
1. Vinegar Hill Camping Grounds will be open as normal for campers.
2. Due to government regulations and guidelines they will not be able to hold any organised events for 2021. This means there will be no NYE show and Bonfire happening this year.

All welcome to come camp and enjoy Christmas and new year in the beautiful surrounds of the reserve. Lots of campers are coming as normal and it will be a fantastic time as normal, just a lot quieter. Follow the facebook group (a private group so you have to join).
