‘Go online’ for caravan sites at Forest Parks

Date published: 21 January 2019

The Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) has today launched a new online booking system for caravan sites managed by the Forest Service.


The new online system is available on the nidirect website and it is valid for bookings at Tollymore Forest Park, Castlewellan Forest Park, Drum Manor Forest Park and Glenariff Forest Park. It will enable touring caravan and camping customers to check availability, make and manage their own bookings and make payments at times of their own convenience.

Chief Forest Officer, John Joe O’Boyle, said: “The introduction of an online booking system for caravan sites at Forest Parks further demonstrates DAERA’s commitment to developing online services. It is important to our customers that we continue to develop ways to modernise our caravan and camping arrangements. The new on-line booking system is a good example of this.’’

Bookings for the 2019 season can be booked from today via the nidirect website.
