Caerphilly CBC operate two campsites at Parc Cwm Darran and Cwmcarn Forest. Both offer a mixture of pitches for various sizes of tent, caravans and motor homes. For those of you would like to camp in style why not try one of the glamping pods at Cwmcarn Forest.

Parc Cwm Darran

Parc Cwm Darran has a small secluded campsite with 30 pitches nestled within the picturesque Darran Valley. This well-presented site is located near the Visitor Centre and offers 20 electrical hook up pitches and 10 non electric pitches. The site is suitable for caravans, motor homes and tents. The campsite operates between 1st April and 30th September and the facilities include showers, toilets and a kitchen area. The tariffs vary depending on the size of tent or caravan and whether an electrical hook up is required. There is a maximum stay of 14 nights per booking.

We offer a discount to Caravan Club members and we're happy to discuss accommodating your caravan rally. Please call us to discuss your requirements and to see if we have any special offers available.

As well as our main campsite we have a separate field for the use of Scouts and other group such as Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme participants. There is a charge per head payable for use of this field and booking should be made in advance through the Visitor Centre.
