Hi. you phone or email the campsite. Contact Lesley Shell at Drumroamin directly. Do not try to book on line as the site will say fully booked as it is reserved for the Star Camp.

The addresses are on the web.  But you may well be too late now as I think the Star Camp may actually be fully booked by now.

I would get in touch asap to find out.

Best of luck.

 

Thanks, I've just paid the reservation fee to Lesley at Drumroamin, she confirmed that there was at least one place left for me, so I am booked in for Monday 21st November 2022 for 5 nights with EHU (I will be in a tent 4.8m long), with a grass pitch hopefully (or at least with enough grass to put my Coleman MacKenzie tent on).  My skies like a lot of us are extremely nauseatingly bright and orange color at night and can barely see any stars (Bortle 8, LM barely 4.3) here in St.Helens, Merseyside!

Hopefully by November for start of Starcamp I will have my Hubble Optics UL16 telescope to bring along with me.

This will be my first time at Galloway.

Best Regards,

A.

Excellent news! You will love the dark skies at Drumroamin, no orange glow to contend with.

Look forward to meeting you👍

Glad you got it sorted. Our Star Camp is small but sort after. Places are usually snapped up in short order.

See you there 😀

 

AND

There's enough grass.........................

I like the look of that roof tent, you think it'll go on my car !?  Not sure I'd fancy the trip in my Landy, @ 2 mpgs it'd cost a bit more than the car did (not much mind 🤣) and 50mph top speed I'd have to set off tomorrow !

If that Coleman tent is a standing room one, I suggest reading back (was it this thread or previous star camp ones ?) ... they had some strong winds and some tents suffered, make sure it's rated for high winds or try find some extra lashing kit just in case.

Yes the Coleman tent I bought is one of the very tall ones with plenty of room inside to stand up in (I'm 5 feet 7 1/2). I bought it becase I coudn't stand up in my previous Kobuk Valley 4 tent. I stayed with Coleman because I have a very strong preference for their Blackout Bedroom "technology". The new to me tent has poles which are all heavy gauge steel, so unlikely to break. I also have a couple of packs of spare tent pegs, and I have 8 of the new fangled "Delta Ground Anchors" that arrived today, those can withstand up to 72Kg of pull on each one. But you never quite know with winds... anyway here's hoping.

Regards.
