Camping with friends
Springfield UK (St Albans) offers camping that's about getting back to nature - with campfires to sit around and socialising under the stars, lots of space, and friendly approachable staff.
The site caters to tents only, with a bar on site, outdoor activities and more.
A train station at Radlett, a five minute drive away, takes you straight into King's Cross.
Due to the Coronovirus, like all businesses, we have had to change the way we operate and look to reevaluate our working model, accounting for social distancing and public safety.
One of our biggest challenges has been to make it safe for everyone.
For 2020 and until further notice:
* Monday 12pm to Friday 12pm will remain as a mixture of families and adults only
* Friday 12pm to Sunday 12pm will become an Adults ONLY campiste area.... Well, for 2020 and then we will assess it again in 2021 and hopefully we can look at going back to welcoming families back over the weekends again.
No alcoholic drinks can be brought onsite as we are a licensed premises even onto the car parking areas.
As we have a license, by ignoring our rules here and bringing outside drinks here, your actions risks us losing our license. Therefore, you will be asked to leave.
Due to the Corono Virus, more spot checks are being carried out by the council without any notifications. In the event someone is intoxicated, the bar would stop serving them, however, the bar would not be aware of the situation if people sneaked in their own drinks and therefore the council would see this as the premises license holder no longer has control of the situation.
Rightly so, the council would remove our license and this would mean - no more business!
There are many other reasons but this is the easiest to explain here where campers bring in their own drinks.
For this reason, if you do bring in your own drinks, you will be asked to leave and there will be no refund of the camping fees.Thank you for understanding.
Please also note that we do have toilets and washing facilities but there are no showers onsite due to the Covid Virus
The campsite is set on a mature plot of land, surrounded by 400 acres of land, offering plenty of paths and streams for you to explore.
The campsite itself is a large and beautifully kept grassy field, surrounded by trees. It is located just within London's M25 (access to the M25, M1, and A1 is 10 minutes drive away) offering excellent access to the capital.
Tents are limited to to account for the social distancing and we do spread tents out in order that guests can enjoy a true outdoor experience Fire pits can be hired and are perfect to roast your marshmallows over. We keep getting asked that if a group books, will they remain as a group - we believe that when groups book, they should stay together as a group.
The site is open throughout the year and is a TENTS only site.
For fire safety reasons, open fires will not be allowed and fires will be contained with the firepits. these can be hired from the bar area. Branches from trees must not be broken and used as firewood. We can provide you with lots of wood at a very small cost.
BBQs are allowed but if possible, please bring BBQs with legs - if thats not possible and you can only get hold of the disposables, if its possible, try and bring 4 bricks to place beneath the disposable BBQs - this avoids burning the grass. Im sure we will have some bricks here if you forget but let us know on arrival. Thank you.

Our Terms and Conditions for Camping:
We have tried our best to keep our terms and conditions non onerous but there are certain points that as a campsite, we do need to bring to everyone's attention to ensure that anyone booking understands how the campsite works.
All customers must book in advance and we reserve the right to refuse campers not booked in advance.
Check in is after 12pm or after. We would appreciate it if you could let us know your estimated time of arrival, so we can be on site to meet you. Checkout is at 12pm.
Springfield UK has an alcohol premises license with the two bars on site. As Springfield UK is a bar, no alcohol can be brought onsite under any circumstances. All alcohol must only be purchased from the Bars onsite. Anyone found drinking alcohol not purchased from the onsite bars will be asked to leave the site.
Within the Bar area, there may be events taking place with possibly a DJ playing, a live band, or even cinema shows. Some may be private events and others may be for the public, including the campers. If one bar has been booked for a private event, the other bar will be opened for the campers to use.

Guests who in our reasonable opinion are causing nuisance may be liable for loss of damage, deposit money and/or be required to immediately leave the site.
Springfield UK is now catering for adults only. Family groups with children are welcome to come and stay but please let the owner know you are bringing children and their ages prior to your arrival to help allocate tents in a sensible way. Please also note that, whilst we of course expect our guests to be respectful to others, there is no absolute noise curfew at night.
