The River Camel

The River Camel (Cornish: Dowr Kammel, meaning crooked river) rises on the edge of Bodmin Moor and flows past Padstow into the eastern Celtic Sea between Stepper Point and Pentire Point. The river is tidal upstream to Egloshayle and is popular for sailing, bird watching and fishing.

 The main tributaries of the River Camel are the Allen, the Ruthern, the De Lank and the Stannon. Other tributaries include the River Amble, which joins the Camel near Burniere Point and the Polmorla Brook which joins the Camel immediately above the bridge at Wadebridge.
