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%. And in the full year, 63 animals were killed on the roads compared to 56 in 2017.

New Forest seasonal highlights
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.

July
Silver-washed fritillary butterflies brighten many woodland rides.
Bird song subsides as the annual moult begins, old worn feathers are cast off and new replacements grown.
Wild gladiolus plants bloom. (In the UK, this species is found only in the New Forest).
Dragonflies and Damselflies take to the wing in ever increasing numbers.
