How to apply for a camping permit

To book your camping permit or BBQ pit slot, you can submit your application via AXS. Here are the two links for camping permits and BBQ pits:

All you have to do is choose your preferred date and the area that you're interested in camping. Camping permits are also free. Do note that once you have booked your permit, you are not allowed to cancel or change the date of the application. The maximum number of days allowed for camping is also 4 per month. For BBQ pits, there's a charge of $16 or more for each pit.

If you're interested to camp in Pulau Ubin instead, you will need to fill up this form instead. Do note that you are required to apply for a camping permit 2 weeks in advance and the earliest you can book is 2 months in advance.
