About Northants DA

Northants DA organises meets every weekend from March to November. Most meets are within a 20 mile radius of Northampton, but some are further especially those held on Bank Holiday weekends. A copy of our sites list detailing events that we will be holding during the coming year can be found here.

Further details, including directions and contact telephone numbers of all these meets, can be found in the “Out & About” pages in the monthly magazine.

In order to keep costs down, most of our meets are held on non-commercial sites and it is therefore essential that you have your own sanitation and are prepared to use battery power for the duration of the meet.

We pride ourselves on being a friendly DA and hold coffee mornings once a month where details of future meets and events are given out. However, participation is purely voluntary so if you do camp with us don’t feel under any obligation to join in – some members just want to have a quiet weekend to wind down.


If you are a member of the Camping & Caravanning Club, you will find a wealth of information in the Camping and Caravanning Club Handbook that is given to every member on joining. Visit the website at www.campingandcaravanningclub.co.uk

Northants D.A. belongs to the Central Counties Region of The Camping & Caravanning Club. The Central Counties region embraces the Counties of Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Warwickshire, Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire and the Metropolitan County of West Midlands.

We are situated in the heart of the country and perfectly located for anyone travelling around Britain. If you are a member of the Camping & Caravanning Club you can camp at any weekend meet organised by a District Association. You may not live in our region but you can still camp with us at any time.

There are very few meets that need to be pre-booked. To find out about all of our weekend meets visit our sites list found here. Northants D.A. was first formed in 1955 and has grown from strength to strength. We have some regular campers that have been with us since the early days of the club. Most of the camping was in tents in the 50’s.

Although there are still some tents, most of the camping is now in caravans and motorhomes. It is no longer a pastime for just the hardy folk, today’s modern caravans have all the facilities needed for even the most discerning camper.
