Why stay here ...

Crossways Club Campsite is an imaginatively landscaped destination set in the midst of 35 acres of lush woodland - ideal when touring in Dorset. Pitching is available in open groves, all of which are linked by a scenic snaking road. This makes for easy access around the caravan site, from the charmingly named Iron Horse Meadows to Poachers Paradise. If you want to leave the car behind for an excursion or if you're simply a rail enthusiast, the railway is a five minute walk away.

There is a pleasant pub adjacent to Crossways Club Campsite, serving good food.  The caravan park is within convenient reach of a wealth of interesting attractions at the nearby town of Weymouth. Also close by is the harbour town of Poole, with its blue flag beaches and Lighthouse Arts Centre, and a short drive from the site brings you to the historic market town of Dorchester. From its glorious beach to the charming shops and wide selection of restaurants, there is something memorable to be had for everyone in the family.

Please note that this site has dry composting toilets, shower facilities are located in separate blocks.

A third very happy stay

Crossways Club Campsite
I spent two nights here with my dog in a delightful quiet woodland setting. Glen and Steve were exceptionally friendly and helpful and they maintain the site to a very high standard. I keep coming back as this site is so special with all the wildlife - you don't feel you are staying on 'a site at all! I will be back again soon.

Ideal stop over or for touring the local area

Crossways Club Campsite
Had a very good two nights with wild life and birds around us, friendly staff on arrival,, Some train horn noise from the crossing and road noise, but can be avoided by finding a pitch away from it, very clean and tidy.

Beautiful site but noisy

Crossways Club Campsite
My other half had been raving about this site for the last 3 years having paid a visit on her way home from the coast. Easy directions but also easy to miss the club signs which are set back from the road. We arrived in the middle of the Queens celebrations, a well attended party was going on but the wardens took time to sort us out and off we went to find a spot. The site was quite full but we managed to find a site, set up and wondered where all the deer were. Went back to the wardens to confirm what pitch and we were told they were probably hiding as they had just given birth to their young. We did spot a few over the next few days. This was a Sunday. I didn't realise just how close the London to Weymouth railway line was until the first of the trains sounded its horn approaching the crossing just outside the site at 6.20 am, and they continued to sound the horns every twenty minutes either going to Weymouth or to London. No mention of this in the book. Some of the other visitors said that 'you will get use to it' but 6 times an hour, starting so early and ending well after 11pm, err no! we didn't! On Monday morning we were serenaded by the lorries in the quarry (which is on the opposite side of the site) with their reversing tones accompanied by various bangs and thumps as minerals were extracted and loaded onto trucks. 8am start! After saying this we did have a nice time at the site. Tank museum, (really awful coffee) £18.00 a head was a nice day out, Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum again £18.00 was another interesting half day, but disappoining cafe, and some of the exhibits were still under construction. The wardens as ever are great with good local knowledge. The pub by the railway crossing serves some excellent food and the beer is good. Shame about the noise.

Unexpected Delight

Crossways Club Campsite
I had always put off going to this site because of the toilets but decided to try it as we could use our own facilities and I am so glad we did. The site itself is so well kept by the very friendly wardens who maintain the site in a sympathetic way that complements its rural location and the wildlife that live there on site, we had deer visit it us most days and at one point had 7 merrily munching away by us, the site is laid out in a wooded area but nearly all the pitches are sun traps. We never did use the composting toilets but did use the showers which we found to be some of the best on the clubs network, they had great waterpressure and we're warm too, the site is ideally located for quite a few tourist attractions we loved Weymouth, we spent a great day at Monkey World and 3 days at the fabulous Tank Museum. We will be returning for another visit as we have loads more to see and do. A big well done to the wardens for providing members with such a great sitr

Just perfect

Crossways Club Campsite
I love the way that there are lots of small areas to pitch in so that even when it’s busy you don’t feel cramped. Lots of wildlife around and so dark at night the stars are out in force. The compost toilets are fine and don’t smell. The railway station gives you plenty of opportunities to explore the area and beyond. The pub outside the entrance does reasonable meals. Showers hot and never had to wait. Just loved it here. The only possible downside, but it didn’t worry me, was the hooting of the train horns on the approach to the level crossing. There is limited access to a mobile signal on the internet so get your train times while you are off site.
