Porth Joke Campsite

A quiet family campsite with an unrivalled location

Adjoining Treago Mill is a well drained field for camping. It is just a few minutes walk along a level sandy path to the beach. The whole area is natural, rural and is classified both as an area of outstanding natural beauty and an area of scientific interest for its rare flora and unspoiled environment.

We emphasise that it is a quiet site and we request that everyone should respect the peaceful atmosphere of the countryside.


Facilities include an attractive cornish stone toilet block, unmetered hot showers and a washing up room with hot water. There are shaving and hair drying points, a free ice pack service and an electronics charging service. Another important facility is the natural sandpit in the centre of the lower field which provides a safe social centre for young children where they will entertain themselves happily for hours. As they get older they graduate to the woods and stream surrounding the field. Bridges are built, bridges collapse, swings are created and no doubt they sometimes also collapse.


Dogs are not permitted and we are not able to accommodate caravans or large motor homes but camper vans are very welcome.
