The nation's forests and facilities are open, but please follow government coronavirus guidelines when planning your visit - read our coronavirus guidance.

Campsites preparing to open

The campsites in the Crown Lands of the New Forest are operated by an independent, commercial camping company – Camping in the Forest. The company operate, staff and run campsites across the UK, including these 10 in the New Forest.

They are taking bookings and currently plan to open the sites from April 12 at the earliest in England, subject to confirmation from the government. However, it is likely that as part of this opening phase they will not be able to open facility blocks until 17 of May at the earliest. During this period campers will need to have their own self-contained toilet facilities, such as washrooms in caravans and motorhomes.

They are awaiting further guidance from the government on whether facilities can open from April 12 and hope to update campers as soon as it's known.

For more information about Camping in the Forest please visit their website or call 0247 642 3008 about your existing booking.
