Description of Dartmoor National Park

Dartmoor National Park covers a total area of 368 sq mi (953 sq km). It is famous for unique natural landscape as well as remains of human presence. The oldest settlements here date back to the Bronze Age. Although it is hard to find remains of the ancient presence here, standing stones are clearly visible in the treeless landscape of Dartmoor National Park. Several campsites are spread all over the nature reserve. Back country camping is also allowed in the park, but it carries certain restrictions.
