Boating around Dartmouth

Hi Guys

I'm planning a weekend in Dartmouth on my Rib this summer. Can anyone suggest a decent camp site with a slipway as close to the town as possible?

Many thanks

Robbie Lee (Yoyo)

Hi.

we camp each year at Deer Park just outside Dartmouth, and launch each day from the slip beside the upper ferry.

Hi Nasher

Thanks for this, looks good. Will we need a 4 wheel drive for the slipway?

Also how far is it from Dartmouth?

Thanks
Yo Yo

The slip way can get covered in slime so a 4x4 is best.
The campsite is 10 mins drive from the slipway, and the slipway is on the main route through Dartmouth.

The slipway does indeed get very slippery sometimes, it's really bad at the mo, .....trying to pull 3 tonnes up there even with the landy.
There's a boatyard up the river which will provide storage for the week, excellent facilities and a fantastic part of the river.
