Wild camping is not allowed in the park unless you are going to a designated back packing site. Has anybody wild camped nearby, preferably close to the observatory, that they can recommend?

I've used both the Angler's Arms and the wooded car park behind the Bike hire shop at the castle. If you follow the track to the right of left of the castle entrance there are a couple of wide pull ins. As most of the villagers are employed by the Forestry Commission, there's a likelihood of being asked to move if spotted. A friend recommends the car park in the woods by the viaduct at Butteryhaugh, but not tried that. All are relatively close to the observatory.

I have now used the Pheasant Inn Britstop, just south of the Dam. Good food and quiet. Went on to the observatory for good evening watching the stars...and clouds.

There is an actual campsite in the forest which may be less hassle. :)
