Thetford Forest Caravan Club Site is set in luscious Forestry Commission woodland. Quiet and secluded, the caravan park offers pitching areas in open glades and tempting trails for exploring the natural charms of the surrounding area. Within the forest there is a memorial area and guided trail dedicated to the Desert Rats, who were based and trained here during the Second World War. On-site there is an abundance of wildlife, with deer often spotted in the early mornings. The site is wonderful for dogs, with great walks nearby.

Within a short distance from Thetford Forest Caravan Club Site you will discover the market town of Swaffham. Steeped in Georgian history, the town also has a fine Saturday market for some leisurely retail therapy. It is also known for being the birthplace of Howard Carter, discoverer of Tutankhamun's tomb, and there is an extensive exhibition about him in the local history museum located above the town hall. Both King's Lynn and Norwich have other historical centres of note, and are within easy driving distance of the caravan park. Another excellent day excursion would be the beautiful Norfolk coastline with its many charming villages. High Lodge Forest Park is a great day out for kids and Lynford Hall and Arboretum offer some lovely walks. Plenty of pubs including The Swan in Hilborough, can be reached within a short car ride.

We stayed here for a few days last week and have decided it's our favourite site so far.  Beautiful surroundings, peace and quiet with lots of fantastic walks for our energetic dogs.  Will definitely be back

This campsite is in a good location and is very clean and well maintained. The staff were very friendly and very helpful.

Away from it all....

We have been here before. It is a very peaceful site, full of wildlife. Plenty of walking paths amongst the forest and villages around, for the dog. The weather was perfect when we were there, so a very enjoyable stay. We had an electric cut for a while, but the Wardens, (who were temporary) were excellent and very helpful, soon had it all back to normal. A lovely village just up the road, with shops and an eating place, a little butchers and store in the village centre. Great.
