Why stay here ...
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 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.

This is an excellent site and location for our needs, Quiet location, Walking, Road and Gravel cycling. However stupid issues that shouldn't be there and very easily resolved if the Wardens/CAMC admin read this 1: Black Mould on the ceiling of ladies and gents showers, a "flat" mop with bleach on would clean this....simple.... otherwise it is a disgusting and a bio hazard, especially to those with respiratory problems or illnesses . 2: The "Bike/Dog wash is not fit for purpose, I don't own a dogs but it is useless for washing bikes as the hose diameter gives no pressure to blast out the sandy grime from forest roads, nor can you put on your own hoselock fittings as the hose is the wrong size, please fix this to take a hose gun, simple 3: Regarding the above, we "felt told off" by a female warden when told there was a bike wash to use when I was using the supply on my service pitch with "fit for purpose" hose gun. Not sure if I was breaking rules or not?.....be clear as I cannot find anything in the site rules regarding this? More muck and oil will wash off my car and van in a rain storm than I will wash off my bike, all cleaning products I use are bio degradable (a majority are these days) common sense prevails. 4: The wardens (Wardens please take this as positive constructive criticism for improvement) Well we can't really complain but then again we cant really make any positive comments either, they were "unnoticeable" and a lack of engagement or social interaction left us cold, many campers may find this good, we found it a in-personable with a lack of interest in the residents on site. Is being a CAMC warden was more than just a job? Are they better than the campers? One warden in particular has an intimidating physical presence and needs to find a way to engage with the clients on site to overcome this (see previous about engaging with the site customers), further to the bike wash comment, another camper had encountered this warden when washing their bike on pitch as I had and felt intimidated. I feel that from his persona, he is either ex Forces or Police? A bio story of the wardens would help us out here in how to interact with the employees of the CAMC, manage expectations 5: WHY is the information hut labeled as assistance dogs only, it IS NOT a food preparation area and poses no hazard. And we don't have dogs, this is discrimination. 6: There is an over use of labeling throughout, in particular the "don't walk over the cattle grid" is laughable and shows a nanny state attitude from either the wardens or the CAMC....... signs and labels everywhere are ugly and too many get ignored and messages diluted 7: At times we had to help older and more frail campers to open and use the combination lock on the heavy toilet doors. We understand that this level of security maybe required during the months the site is closed but could certainly be managed in a better way during the season when the site is open. Please treat us like grown ups
