Cornwall Council said it was aware of the situation at Moresk and said it was legally required to carry out welfare assessments before taking any action.
A council spokesman said: "The group have been informed that they are trespassing and that they are required to purchase the necessary tickets for stationing their vehicles in the car park or face the usual sanctions."
