As you top the rise on the approach road, you will see Rookesbury Park Caravan Club Site splendidly set in tranquil parkland and filled with hedges and trees in the valley, with the magnificent Forest of Bere at its edge. For restaurants, pubs and other conveniences, the caravan site puts you within easy reach of Fareham and the village of Wickham.

A good choice for those with children, part of the caravan park is reserved as a children's play and picnic area. As the Gateway to the South Downs, the site is ideally located for shoppers and city visitors to Portsmouth and Southampton, yet also perfectly placed to enjoy country walks and the peace and tranquillity of the Forest of Bere clearings. If you enjoy the outdoors you will be spoilt for choice because the entire area is ideal for walking, cycling and leisurely absorbing the peace and quiet of the former royal Forest of Bere. The area is abundant with wildlife and a variety of birdlife, with plenty of opportunities for keen photographers to take great nature shots. Should you want to explore further afield, Rookesbury Park Caravan Club Site is well placed for everything from a day trip to the Isle of Wight to a longer visit in Portsmouth to see the restored ships of old (the Mary Rose, the Victory, the Warrior) as well as sample the local seaside shopping treats. For more fascinating history, you could also visit the Victorian Fort Nelson, a Royal Armouries collection of artillery, displaying over 350 cannons. A mobile fish and chip van visits this site, please ask the wardens for more details.

ONE NIGHT STAYS to or from a ferry: If you are arriving after 8pm and/or leaving before 8am you do need to book a 'Ferry Pitch'. If none are available, please do not book a 'Standard Pitch' but call the site directly. Please see Important Information below for more details on ferry pitches.

Rookesbury Park

4 out of 5

We arrived at approximately 6.45 in the evening, having come off the ferry.  The wardens were just finishing but could not have been more helpful.  They took time to ensure we had a suitable pitch and knew where all the facilities were.  This is the second year we have stayed at Rookesbury Park, last year we arrived at 10.30 at night in the middle of a deluge.  The wardens were fantastic on that occasion, this being the reason we were looking forward to returning.

Locked in at night now?

We regularly stay at the site but this time we were surprised the learn on our arrival that you cannot exit the site between 11pm and 7am. I am aware that the CCC has such rules but I have always thought the clubs greater flexibility to be one of its advantages. You need to be aware of this if you want an early start to reach a not so local attraction.

Disappointed wardens not helpful.

After reading the reviews we decided to visit the site, we learnt that the wardens had changed since last year. Very unhelpful to the point of rudeness. We asked if we could save the pitch near us for my daughter arriving that day. They say No and said if we put anything on the pitch they would remove it. My daughter has a 20 month old toddler and is new to caravanning so our help is invaluable to her. I then found out that 3 different people had saved pitches for their friends with the knowledge of the wardens. I couldn't believe this plus how rude they were to us. Don't pitch up near the play area especially at the weekend there are children running riot all around. Also noticed caravans parked the "wrong " way round on the pitch nothing said to them by the wardens..... Wifi didn't work most of the time and mobile reception poor. I wouldn't like to be in the site during school holidays. As a result of the wardens attitude we do not think we will renew our membership. I agreed with rules but when I hear that 3 other members saved pitches with the wardens knowledge and we were told it was against the rules.... What more can I say. My daughter also felt it ruined her break away as they were rude to her. it.

There is no reason why caravans should not park nose in if it suits.�

I would also like to comment that caravans arrived before 12 noon to find a pitch.�
