Site details for New Forest campsites, caravan sites and caravan parks

A wealth of campsites, caravan sites and caravan parks are available within the New Forest and surrounding area. Although some of these offer little more than a field and quite basic facilities, others feature all that could reasonably be expected including, in some instances, a wide range of leisure facilities.

A number of the campsites are managed by 'Camping in the Forest' (these are the Forestry Commission sites of a few years ago), others are independently owned and there are also two main Caravan Club sites that are for the use of members only.

Whatever your requirements, there is a New Forest camp site, caravan site or caravan park that is ideal for you.

** New Forest ponies **
New Forest ponies in the road
Ponies, cattle, pigs, sheep and donkeys are a popular part of the New Forest scene, but during the first six months of 2018, 36 animals were killed or injured on Forest roads, compared with 26 in the same period in 2017, a shocking rise of 38%.
** Always take care when driving **
New Forest seasonal highlights
August
Heather blossom produces huge swathes of heathland colour, adding to the pinks and purples of earlier flowering cross-leaved heath and bell heather.
Fallow, red and sika deer antlers, when fully grown, are cleaned of velvet in preparation for the autumn rut.
New Forest pony drifts - the annual round-ups begin.
Marsh gentian blooms add splashes of blue to some of the wetter heathlands.

September
Dragonflies and damselflies remain on the wing and so do butterflies, but in ever decreasing numbers.
Hen harriers and other autumn and winter visiting birds begin to arrive in the Forest.
Mysterious New Forest fungi - mushrooms and toadstools increasingly appear in the woods.
Red deer start to noisily rut as stags roar songs of love across favoured heaths.
