Ulster American Folk Park

Come along to the Ulster American Folk Park on 23rd August for a camping adventure like no other!

We have teamed up with the RSPB to deliver a batty themed evening including a bat talk, batty games, treasure hunt and bat walk


For one night only, visitors can pitch their tents in the fantastic grounds of the Ulster American Folk Park Omagh. Tickets are selling quickly for this unique experience so don’t delay – call RSPB NI on 028 9049 1547 to reserve your place by the camp fire!

The Big Wild Campout will be a wonderful experience for campers as they will not only be able to enjoy the grounds by day, but will also have the unique opportunity to experience all the site has to offer once the sun goes down.
Visitors will also enjoy reduced entry in to the museum the following day.
From 4pm on Saturday 23rd August the RSPB team and their friends at Cotswold Outdoors will help guests set up their home for the night and they will then be free to explore the area and get settled in.
