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.

First trip in the motorhome since lockdown lifted

We were keen to get away as soon as lock down started to be lifted. We booked Black Knowll well in advance. The instructions given to us ahead of arrival were very precise and reassuring - great thanks to Helen. When we arrived we were met by the warden, who gave us extra information and urged us to read it, which again showed how well thought out their approach was considering social distancing, cleanliness and limiting risk. The majority of the guests followed the rules, but sad to see still a few elderly people that obviously didn't read the information or don't think it applies to them - they still insisted on taking short cuts to the shower block, walking across other people's pitches which we'd politely been asked not to do :( We love Black Knowll, I think nearly everyone there this time had their dog, we enjoyed walking & exploring and visited the Forest Park Hotel for the first time, which again, have set in great revised plans to ensure all their guests are safe. Can't wait to go back.

A lovely site with a very friendly and helpful warden

A lovely site in a great location. Excellent facilities too. There had been quite a lot of rain prior to our visit and we got caught out whilst trying to turn our campervan around on a grassed area that was much wetter than we thought. We got stuck! Fortunately the friendly warden was on hand to help out and got us moving again along with some help from a fellow camper too.

Great site, welcoming and fantastic facilities

We stayed over Christmas in our campervan. Great facilities onsite, with welcoming friendly wardens. You can cycle, walk or run straight out onto the forest so great when camping with dogs. We will stay again.

Simply Superb

Access to this site is not difficult at all, just ensure you follow club directions on your approach through Brockenhurst. Wardens at time of visit very friendly and helpful. Site is well laid out, and despite what others say felt spacious. The hardstanding pitches were generous in size, well maintained and for the most part level. The facilities block is new, was always spotlessly clean and there was always plentiful hot water. The site offers walking direct into the New Forest, and varied walks are available. We got a strong signal for TV through our Status and good reception on EE for web browsing. Tesco express in Brockenhurst for shopping, but all the other suspects available a bit further afield.
