Why stay here ...

Hunter's Moon Club Campsite 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 Campsite 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.

Superb!

Hunter's Moon Club Campsite
A great first time caravanning experience with the family. The team were very welcoming and the site was immaculate. The kids loved the play area and the meadow walk. We even went on a 3 mile walk from the site around Wareham forest where we spotted a number of Round Leaved Sundews and Common Darter Dragon flies. The walk included the local pub (which is now family and dog friendly) on the route where we sampled the local Ales before heading back to relax in our awning. We loved it so much we returned the following weekend and were not disappointed.

Full marks to a great on site team

Hunter's Moon Club Campsite
Stayed at this site over May bank holiday weekend and it is a credit to the site team and the effort they are putting in to make everyone’s stay enjoyable.It is well kept and clean and the information hut is excellent , well laid out with everything easy to find. The location is perfect for trips to National Trust sites plus coastline with Wareham Forest on the doorstep. For dog owners the fully fenced in dog walk with two poo bins is an absolute winner.

First Time Camper-vanner

Hunter's Moon Club Campsite
So pleased I picked this site for my first ever solo camper van trip. I stayed fairly local in case I messed up big time and could just go home. But I need not have worried. From the minute I pulled up, and told the girls at reception I was a total novice, they went out of their way to make sure I was ok. I had booked a serviced pitch, without realising I needed rock pegs, which I had left at home, but had bought grass pitch pegs, so they moved my pitch (which I preferred). They left me to it, but walked by at regular intervals to see how I was getting on, with putting up the awning, and connecting all the gear up. I asked them quite a lot of questions and every time they answered and helped show me what to do. As a woman on my own,[my sister was with me but purely as a spectator!], I felt safe and so proud I had achieved my first trip without disaster. The location was amazing and they keep the site absolutely spotless - everywhere. They work very hard. And they came out to say goodbye when I left and congratulated me which I thought was so lovely of them. Top marks and a big thank you to the girls and Graham at Hunters Moon. I will be back ha ha!!!

A Gem of a site

Hunter's Moon Club Campsite

Normal typical high standard as you would expect, nice a relaxed and quiet (even considering it was Easter and nearly full). What I hadn't appreciated was what a wonderful little corner of the country it is. Wareham Forest on the doorstep with the cycle trail and walks. The beautiful countryside around Corfe Castle, Lulworth with places to park up just take in the views. Poole and Sandbanks, always something happening on the water there to watch. Weymouth and Bournemouth for the more traditional beach holiday. I'm sure there is much more but we ran out of days, definitely be booking to go back! The only slight negative, the no awning pitch next to the WC block looked very cramped and wouldn't personally be somewhere I'd want stop for a holiday (fine if it's just an over night stop over)
