Wild camping is not officially permitted in the Peak District National Park, as most of the land is privately owned or managed by various organizations. However, there are many designated campsites and campgrounds throughout the area where you can stay for a fee. If you're set on wild camping, it's essential to obtain permission from the landowner and follow the Leave No Trace principles. Keep in mind that wild camping is generally more accepted in remote areas with few visitors, rather than popular tourist spots.
