Camping Rulebook Horrorshow

Camping Rulebook Horrorshow
You have to give your car registration, your mother's maiden name, a pint of blood; and that is just to get us to open the first gate.

If you want a shower, the machine takes 25p tokens, which you have to get from our shop, which will be shut whenever you require a shower.

You may only camp in the field which does not have reserved pitches. However, we will not make it clear which field is which, and your tent shall be destroyed if you contravene this regulation.

You must ensure all passengers leave your car if you drive on the grass.


Attach one permit to your car, and another to your tent. We shall make an exception this time, and you shall not need to have the identity chip inserted under your skin.

I may have exaggerated slightly, but not much.

But! To be fair...

It all depends what you like - we're the types who look for the emptiest, most-barren campsite in the land and pitch our tent in the farthest corner from anyone else. So our view may be coloured slightly.

It was just very busy, and Very Well Behaved Or Else - not that we're hell raisers or anything - I just don't like being confronted with rules for this, that and the other, that try to enforce what should be basic good manners... it's vaguely insulting, if you know what I mean...

On the plus side, I suppose I could begrudgingly describe it as Good For Kids with a Happy Family Friendly Atmosphere :-)
