Our Camping in the Forest campsites have plenty to boast about, not least because of their exclusive locations within some of the UK’s best national parks. Here’s a rundown of our favourite national park campsites.
The historic New Forest National Park offers wonderful wildlife, open spaces and scenic walks.
Spanning across southwest Hampshire and southeast Wiltshire, there’s plenty to do while staying on one of our New Forest campsites. Rise early to enjoy strolling around one of the many markets, hire a bike to explore on two wheels and enjoy a late lunch and a tipple in one of the highly-rated pubs and breweries.
Head to the coast for the day to relax on one of the New Forest beaches or, hop on board the ferry from Keyhaven to visit the old artillery fortress, Hurst Castle.
Most of our New Forest campsites are dog-friendly and offer plenty of things to do nearby.
Near Christchurch and Bournemouth, Holmsley is ideal for a coastal camping break. There are blustery coastal walks, watersports and seaside attractions in Bournemouth and Poole. Closer to the campsite, the villages of Burley and Bransgore offer plenty of shops to explore. For the more active, you can head straight off into the forest by foot or on bike from the campsite.
Set within 22 hectares of relaxing woodland, Hollands Wood is the perfect New Forest campsite to “get away from it all”. Here you can camp amongst the free-roaming New Forest ponies with direct access to 143 miles of walking paths. The pretty villages of Brockenhurst and Lymington are nearby with many attractions to keep you busy throughout your stay.
Pitch up in a secluded spot, surrounded by ferns and forest life, or in an open, green area, with great views of the surrounding forest. Roundhill campsite keeps its naturally beautiful charm while being within great proximity to explore the surrounding villages and attractions of the New Forest.

Does access to snow-capped mountains, Caledonian forests, shimmering lochs and scrumptious Scottish food sound like an ideal getaway? The Cairngorms National Park offers this and so much more. Our Scottish campsites offer some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, so we firmly believe a camping trip to Scotland should be on everyone’s bucket list.
If scaling peaks and partaking in winter sports is what you’re after, you won’t find a better option than Cairngorm Mountain. If you’d prefer to stay at a lower altitude, Aviemore is a massive pull for campers, possibly for the views alone. Read about some of our favourite Aviemore walks with stunning scenery and a mix of terrains.
Whether you’re camping as a couple, or taking kids, friends or dogs along, there are plenty of things to do.
Direct access to the beaches of Loch Morlich, views of the Scottish Highlands all around and the delights of the Cairngorms National Park are just a few perks of staying on our Glenmore campsite. Nature enthusiasts and lovers of the outdoors will find themselves feeling at home amongst the deer, endless ancient pine trees of Glenmore Forest Park and footpaths crossing the diverse landscape.
Another popular location for camping in Scotland, the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park provides sweeping mountain ranges and plenty of things to do for all ages. Trossachs camping allows for access to the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, sitting right on the edge of the impressive Loch Lomond.
As with all of our forest locations, there are plenty of walking routes of different skill levels to enjoy. Many of these walks are created around the scenic, twinkling lochs which are surrounded by woodland and wildlife. Glasgow is around an hour away from our Trossachs campsites where you’ll find the Glasgow Science Centre, Riverside Museum and much more.
Sitting on the shore of Loch Lomond, surrounded by the tranquil sound of lapping water and views of the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, Cashel is an excellent base for exploring the Highlands. Direct access to the water, forest and The West Highland way means there’s plenty to do while camping on Cashel.
Just 13 miles from Ben Lomond, one of the most popular mountains in the Scottish Highlands, sitting on the bank of the River Forth is our Cobleland Campsite. The Loch Ard Forest surrounds this campsite with greenery, wildlife and a network of pathways for cycling, walking and exploring. A little further afield you’ll find The Lodge Forest Visitor Centre in Aberfoyle, Dumbarton Castle and plenty more.
