Campsites are at Carnon Downs or Cosawes, Perranorworthal. Both are good sites, the former is very large with flat pitches and excellent facilities. The latter has slightly sloping pitches and with new facilities. It is smaller and very family oriented, part owned by Ian Fraser who is ex Commodore of Restronguet Sailing Club. Ian has run the Dinghy racing for Falmouth Week for years and was a co designer/builder of the Dart Catamaran, Wayfarers have tended to opt for Cosawes because it has been cheaper and lent itself to Wayfarer get togethers around camp stoves in the evenings.
