Whether you are staying for the duration of your holiday or just passing through, almost all of Dorset’s campsites offer pitches at more than reasonable prices.

Experience Dorset’s great outdoors

Spending your nights under canvas is a fabulous way of experiencing the natural wonders of Dorset, and it will make your break away one to remember.

Whether you want to pitch up at a countryside campsite surrounded by rolling hills and wondrous walking routes to explore or a coastal camping park with stunning views of our world famous coastline, we’ve got lots of choice for you.

All of our camping parks have the necessary facilities that will make your stay a comfortable one, whatever the weather!

Back to basic campsites

You don’t have to have all the mod-cons to have a perfect holiday in Dorset. Some of our most popular campsites offer just the basics – toilet and shower blocks and dish washing facilities.

Get out your camping stove and cook up a delicious dinner before toasting marshmallows over the stove or telling stories round the campfire.

Some of our basic campsites are set in lovely rural areas with wonderful dark skies – amazing for star gazing!

Luxury camping and glamping

If you are looking for a campsite or holiday park with lots of facilities and entertainment, Dorset has some great choices for you.

As well as all the usual facilities, you’ll find laundry rooms, children’s play areas, campsite shops, cafes, restaurants or bars, clubhouses and some even have indoor or outdoor swimming pools! Everything you could possibly want for a fantastic camping holiday with a touch of luxury.

And if glamping is what you want, why not try out a yurt, tipi, romany caravan, shepherd’s hut, camping pod or tree house?

What are you waiting for?

With this much choice, we’re confident that you will be able to find the perfect location for your camping trip to Dorset.

We’d really appreciate it if you could please take the time to mention the Visit Dorset website when booking your break.

See you soon happy campers!!
