Elton campsite is in a rural area in the south-east of the county, close to the village of Orston, and has wonderful views across the Trent Valley.

Elton Campsite was gifted to Girlguiding Nottinghamshire in 1930 by Col. G.N. Pearson. The sloping site covers approx. 11 acres of grass and woodland. Part of the area is a site of special scientific interest (SSSI) and is ideal for wide games and nature study.

The site comprises five campsites and a holiday house all of which can be booked for residential stays or day/evening events. Those wanting to hold a larger event can book exclusive use of the whole site.
