Camping for tents is on the grass by the toilets and is free for the weekend, you will be able to stay a couple of days either side no problem if your'e early. There is grass further up the beach but loads of pebbles under make it hard to hammer tent pegs in. Have a look at the plans on the first post for the layout to give you a better idea.

I think as long as you have proof of membership you will be OK. Rich is on the road so difficult to get absolute confirmation unless any of the rest of the crew know.
