Forest Gate

If you are camping in a theme camp or bringing equipment for a camp on the Forest side of the site, you will need to check in at the Main Gate first, and will then be directed to the Forest Gate. Equipment can only cross the river within the site by hand/cart, or gator (if you can find one to flag down), so it is important that vehicles enter through the correct gate (but remember, go to the Main Gate first).
