Why stay here ...

Hunter's Moon Club Site lies just on the edge of the lovely Wareham Forest. This pleasant caravan park, with play area and dog walk, provides an excellent base for touring the lovely area of Dorset. Many of the area's most attractive locations are safeguarded by the National Trust, including substantial stretches of unforgettable scenic coastline. It is rich in combes, cliffs, bays and islands - particularly rewarding for the visitor interested in bird life and walking. The nearby Golden Cap, of which the National Trust owns, 2,000 acres of hills, farmlands and beaches, has the highest cliff in England and delights with its covering of brilliant yellow gorse. 

This is Thomas Hardy country and visitors to Hunter's Moon Club Site will recognise many of the scenes described in his novels. His birthplace, a charming thatched cottage with its garden magnificently ablaze with colour is situated at Higher Bockhampton, within easy reach from the caravan park. Also of great interest in the area and only a short 10 mile journey away is the house at Cloud's Hill, popular because it once belonged to the famous Lawrence of Arabia. At certain times during the month, the delightful market town of Wareham holds a small but well-stocked farmers market. The area offers good transport links with a railway station at Wareham, which also offers car parking and onward bus travel to the coastal towns of Poole, Swanage and Weymouth. Not to be missed are the National Trust’s Brownsea Island and Corfe Castle.

Walking notes:

The historic stretch of Jurassic Coast has miles of paths to explore while you admire the impressive views. Alternatively, the Wareham Forest Way, between Wareham and Sturminter Marshall, passes the site and offers beautiful views, an Iron Age hill fort and lots of wildlife. Locally, from the top of the site into the woods you can follow the path to Wareham or to ‘The Silent Woman’ public house, one mile from the site.

Check out our ViewRanger walk.

No Toilets Available While Cleaning?

Hunter's Moon Caravan Club Site
We visited Hunter's Moon as first time motor-homers recently, and were initially a bit confused about the pricing, as we didn't have any internet connection while travelling, and having referred to the book, were surprised to be charged more upon arrival than we had expected. We asked for an explanation for this, but the female warden seemed somewhat put out, and appeared to have taken our question personally, as if we were accusing her of something, whereas all we wanted, was to know if there was a way that we could clarify the price before ringing up to book in. We were however, pleased to be offered assistance with how to do our first ever EHU, and the male warden put himself out to come and check that we were OK, and knew what we were doing. The one thing that we were a bit taken aback about, was that one of the toilet blocks was locked as of early November, which appeared to mean that when cleaning was taking place in the one remaining open block, there were no facilities to use. We may have been mistaken about this, and would be happy to be corrected if there was a toilet available. However, we did note that at 2 other sites which we used while away, there was a separate toilet made available during cleaning times. If this isn't the case at Hunter's Moon, then they really need to make at least one toilet available, if they're only going to have one block open. Overall we were very happy with our first night on a club site, so much so that we stayed on for a second!

Good location

Hunter's Moon Caravan Club Site
Could be a lovely site but needs attention to detail! Toilets were cleaned every day…..not to the published times though! None of the corners were mopped though, nowhere was swept, generally grungy, I don’t think the washing up area was cleaned at all, the bin was very smelly and dirty all round it. Travellers dogs next door were noisy. Location was great though, particularly for walkers/cyclists. Oh and the sainsburys in wareham is NOT Motorhome friendly!!! Much better to drive to the Asda in Poole.

Great site

Hunter's Moon Caravan Club Site
We have just returned home after a week at hunters moon. We opted for a service pitch which we knew was quite close to the road. We were out most days and it was quieter than we expected at night. The dog walking area is amazing and better than any other site we have been to. The wardens were polite and helpful.

Weekend away

Hunter's Moon Caravan Club Site
Had a weekend away with our friends site was a bit messy. Some trees could have been trimmed back as they were overhanging especially on the service pitches where we stayed. The soap dispenser in the male toilets was empty for 2 days but overall the shower blocks were clean enough. i did at one point ask the the grumpy wardens if i cloud borrow a small step ladder to tighten up a strap on our bike rack rack but was told no due to health and safety but to maybe go around the site and ask if any members had one i could borrow. All the wardens had to do was either say that if i borrowed it it would be at my own risk, or even dare i say to come out and just foot the steps ( there were 4 of them in the Office ) for me. Probably wont rush to go back to this site although i do believe the current wardens are moving on soon.

Lovely location

Hunter's Moon Caravan Club Site
This site is in a great location for visiting Wareham, Corfe Castle and the Dorset coast. Very friendly wardens who gave us a leaflet on walks from the site and useful information. We pitched away from the travellers site on the opposite side of the site and had no problem with noise, but it was late Oct so cold outside. Toilet blocks were clean , the grounds well kept. There is a barrier to go in and out so security good. Great kids play area , one of the best we have seen on a site. Would definitely return
