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 seasonal highlights
May
Bluebells and other wild flowers brighten the woods, usually in relatively small numbers.
Bird song can be heard throughout the day but is at its loudest at dawn and, to a lesser extent, dusk.
Foals are born in increasing numbers and can be seen beside ever-attentive mares.
Dragonflies are more frequently observed on the wing as spring progresses.

June
Badgers can now often be watched above ground well before darkness falls.
Deer - fallow, red, roe, sika and muntjac deer are all present - give birth, although the youngsters are unlikely to be noticed until July.
Heath spotted-orchids add delicate pink colour to many of the heaths.
Hobbies, dashing birds of prey, can often be seen aloft, hawking for insects.
