The 4 campsites we are operating are conveniently based in South West Glasgow (2 campsites), South and South East Glasgow with great public transport links to many of the main venues in Glasgow.

What is it like camping at a Campingninja campsite?

Well, we’re all about creating a great atmosphere for everyone to enjoy the camping and the Games. We will have a great big mix of people from all over the world. At our Olympic campsites people felt like they were part of one big camping family and we aim to replicate that in Glasgow.


All Spectator bookings are made online using our Camping Network Booking Engine. All you need to do is choose which campsite you wish to stay at then click the book now button. If you wish to book a pre-pitched tent all the details about the various sizes and options are on the pre-pitched tent information page. When you book these are all options for you to choose.
