Why stay here ...
Touring season dates at Black Knowl have now been extended until January 2020.
Black Knowl Club site has now been redeveloped to include a brand new toilet and shower facility with family shower rooms, 29 new hardstandings (18 of which are serviced) and improved reception and parking. We look forward to welcoming you.
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.

We were earlier than usual visiting Black Knowl this year, as the site was full it was very crowded. The site is completely open with no hedging around any pitches therefore seems overcrowded, a bit like a car park. Not school holidays but the oldies (that's us too) were out making the most of the children being back at school therefore a very crowded full site. There were a number of grass pitches that had to be closed due to the bad weather, I think it rained the whole week we were there. The wardens were very friendly and kept the new toilet block spotless. There are now more hardstanding available, but we need more seeing the state of the grass. Also the hardstandings need weeding, possibly just spraying with weedkiller would help. The approach road is very narrow with vicious speed humps for those towing, care is needed. The village of Brockenhurst can provide all that's needed during your stay. Small Tesco and Sainsbury's although we heard the latter is closing down. The cake shop is fantastic but you need to be there early, before 11.00, for a bacon & brie baguette which would have been great for lunch, if only! Lots of walks from the site, but need wellies, ponies, horses, donkeys and even cows this year just outside the gate. Plenty of days out too just check out the information office. Will be back again next year.
