Skilpad Rest Camp - camping sites

Unread post by shecky128 » Mon Aug 17, 2015 11:43 am

Hi Everyone,

I read online that there are camping sites (for tents) at the Skilpad Rest Camp. However, I can't find any information about these campsites on the SanParks website. They only mention cottages. Does anyone have any info regarding this?

many thanks and kind regards,

Sherri

Dear shecky128.

A warm welcome to the forums :thumbs_up: .

The Skilpad Rest Camp only consist of 4 Chalets and is the only camp in the Namaqua National Park that does not have camping sites.

Here is a link to the Namaqua National Park maps for easy reference Namaqua Park Maps.

Also have a look at the tariff list Here.

On page 24 you will find the tariffs for the chalets and camping sites.

Hope this helps :thumbs_up: .
Always be humble and understanding.

Hi Sherri, I have also seen the camping area close to the Skilpad camp that you refer to. But it is not SANParks, it belongs to the farmer right next to the park. It is very 'rustic' but I have seen it full during flower season.

Thank you both for your responses.

DinkyBird, You wouldn't happen to have any idea as to how I could contact that farmer, or perhaps the name of the farm?

Kind regards and thank you both again!

Oh that would be fantastic! Thank you!

I've sent some emails out to websites that mention the campsite but haven't yet heard back with anything concrete.

Thanks so much!

Sherri

If you are wanting to go now during flower season, it is very busy in the area. Holding thumbs you find a spot :thumbs_up:

Have tried to book a beach camp site but the web page only comes up with the accommodation chalets.
Can one take a chance on getting in?
