Only stayed there once about 2 years ago. It was by the beach at the North end of the island. Brilliant place for us and the dogs (plenty of Rabbits).

We were nervious the first time, slept with half an eye open. If it doesn't feel right, move on!

I hope you have a lovely time.
Like moonshadow has said, if you don't feel safe, don't stop. pick your spot. Don't park right next to a busy road etc.

Never had any problems and we frequently camp there. Only on one occassion were we a little put out as a group of young men in a caravan were pretty rowdy. We just moved to the other end of the beach.

We are hoping to be there Friday evening.

I've never slept on Walney Island, but I have visited it several times. It's normally so quiet though, that I'd be quite happy spending the night there.

It's usual to be a bit apprehensive the first time, but honestly, after a night or two you'll wonder what all the fuss was about!

Have a great time, and don't forget to tell us how you get on!! :)

72937294Had a superb evening and night on Walney, Friday. The tide was right in at 6pm and it was gloriously hot so managed to gorgeous swims.

Didn't see Ken but there was another van at the far end and a caravan at the near end. Very peaceful indeed.
