Campsites with private bathrooms near Helford River guide

Overview

Riverside pubs, tree-lined canal ways, and secluded beaches tempt travellers to the Helford River estuary on Cornwall’s south coast. On the north shore, visit the National Trust gardens of Trebah and Glendurgan, paddle around the creeks on a kayak or boat cruise, then ride the ferry across the river from Helford Passage. Wildlife-watching is the main attraction at the estuary, and there are plenty of opportunities. Enjoy bird-watching along the beaches, spot crabs and other sea life at Nare Point or Prisk Cove, and visit the Cornish Seal Sanctuary. There’s no camping along the riverside, but country campgrounds lie just a short drive away.

When to go

Summer is the most popular time to discover the estuary, when it’s possible to swim at the beaches. However, the best wildlife-watching opportunities are in autumn and winter, when migrating birds flock to Cornwall’s south shores. Tent camping in Cornwall is best from late spring through early autumn, but year-round camping is still possible with a caravan or motorhome. Ferries run across the Helford River between April and October. 

Know before you go

  • The Helford River lies between Falmouth Bay and the Lizard Peninsula, along the south coast of Cornwall. The north shore is about 9 miles south of Falmouth or a 30-minute drive. Passenger ferries run across the river to Helford village on the south shore. 
  • Facilities are limited along the river, so it’s best to bring everything you need with you. There are restrooms, a café, and a general store in Helford Village, as well as a few pubs along the north shore. 
  • Most campsites require advance booking, and many ask for the full payment in advance. Be sure to check opening dates, as many close in the winter months.
