Why stay here ...

Once the royal hunting forest of William the Conqueror and now a beautiful National Park, the Black Knowl (New Forest) Club Site has an open, peaceful aspect while being conveniently located within walking distance of Brockenhurst. The Hampshire caravan site is in a wonderful setting in the forest and in October at night, stags can be heard roaring in the forest, along with owls and other forest creatures. The town offers plenty of good quality restaurants, places of interest and shopping treats to keep everyone in the family happy on their holiday.

Black Knowl (New Forest) Club Site opens onto over 140 miles of lovely walking track for you to explore in the Forest whether on foot, cycle or horseback. For those with an interest in local history, The Lyndhurst Museum and Visitors' Centre will shed more than enough light on the rich and fascinating past of the Forest. Other nearby attractions include The National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, Exbury Gardens and The New Forest Reptile Centre. For those who dream of taking to the open sea, cruise ships can be viewed on the nearby Solent. You can reach the Isle of Wight via Lymington Ferry and visit Lepe Country Park by the sea with a cafe (seasonal and weekend openings) and children's play area and BBQ area for hire. If you fancy some retail therapy, the Southampton and Bournemouth shopping centres are within easy driving distance from the caravan park and will leave you spoilt for choice.

If you are fancying a take away, Brockenhurst has a great choice. Details of all restaurants, take aways and days out are available in our Information Room.

Great to be back at Black Knowl

Just had a quality time last week! We try to stay at least twice pa and were pleased to manage a pitch in these busy times. The weather was kind, the Wardens were As helpful/hardworking as ever ........ with extra work of sanitizing, which was spot on! The site was so well maintained and of course is situated in an outstanding area, for walking, cycling and shops nearby at Brockenhurst. See you ASAP Many thanks

Forest Hideaway

Stayed here for our third visit and yet again were amazed at how lovely this site and in particular this area is. As always the staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable despite the lack of patience from some members when booking in. We must give a mention and special thanks to Morris who managed to save our holiday by retrieving one of my wife's wedding earrings that fell into the shower soak away. If you didn't know it you are a super hero according to her. Black Knowl is a super site, borne out by how busy it always is yet is still turned out and run immaculately. Despite Covid-19 trying to spoil our outings CAMC have adapted and provide a safe environment in which we can still enjoy and relax on holiday. The pitches are well maintained and are not on top of one another, it's clean, tidy and the toilet facilities more that adequate given that they have to be restricted. Walk a stones throw from the site and you're in the heart of the New Forrest with all it has to offer and nearby are the towns of Brockenhurst and Lyndhurst both reachable on walks through the Forrest the second being a little longer. All in all a perfect site in a perfect location run by a fabulous team. Thank you T & G

Welcome Break

Bit late writing this review as we had a week there from 16/09 in glorious weather. We absolutely love this site, wardens doing a brilliant job on cleanliness and tidying site. The site is in an excellent location for walking, cycling, touring locally or just lazing about. I did hear a few grumbles about not having enough showers open but you can’t please all the people all the time. I felt sorry for the staff on on the last day we where there when they had a leak in the roof of the shower block but these things happen and no need to stress. We had a great week so Thankyou site team.

Excellent site

We have been coming to this site twice a year staying for 3 weeks a time it is our most favourite site, excellent wardens since 2002. We normally book the last 2 weeks in June and the first week in July, due to the COVID19 we booked from the 5th July for 2 weeks, for us this time of year it was a bit too busy, however, we have just returned from our September Black Knowl which was much quieter

A little gem of a site

We have just had a lovely quiet relaxing week at Black Knowl. It is situated right in the forest with walks immediately outside of the site. Horses and cattle roaming right up to the site entrance. The facilities were spotless and the Covid restrictions worked really well, never had to wait to use the toilet block. Check in was smooth and well managed. We never really had much interaction with the wardens after arriving but they always seemed cheerful when around the site. The only slight moan is people do tend to cut across the grass pitches which can be a bit annoying. That said we would definitely recommend this site and look forward to returning.
