With lockdown restrictions on the hospitality industry easing next month, campsites across Norfolk and Waveney have been experiencing an upsurge in calls and bookings.
While some sites will not be able to open immediately - as their toilets are shared facilities - others are planning to open again for campers on July 4.
Here is a list of campsites across the county reopening on that date:
• Whitlingham Broad Campsite
Whitlingham Lane, Norwich
This site will reopen at about 50pc capacity and will limit visitors using toilets and showers at any one time.
Owner Linda Robey said: “Since the announcement, it’s been absolutely crazy. We have been inundated with telephone calls and bookings, at least 60 to 70pc more than normal”
• Hickling Campsite
Heath Lane, Hickling
All facilities, including four showers and toilets, will be open.
• Canal Camping
Owned by the same couple who run Hickling Campsite, this location is also taking bookings.
• Spring Farm Campsite
Owner Joanne Carroll says she is planning to reopen on the date.
• Wardley Hill Campsite
Wardley Hill Road, Bungay
Joe Putman, owner and manager, said: “We are very lucky that we don’t have a traditional toilet block. All the facilities are individual units, in the open air.
“We will be adding more cleaning points and an enhanced cleaning regime.”
