LOW 10% refundable deposit plus FREE cancellations and FREE amendments*

Once the royal hunting forest of William the Conqueror and now a beautiful National Park, Black Knowl Club Campsite 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 Club Campsite 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.

Peaceful few days

Black Knowl Club Campsite
Friendly welcome on arrival and helpful information on the local area. Site ideally placed for exploring the area, and Brockenhurst railway station provides easy access for travelling further afield. Due to recent weather, the surrounding area was very muddy so we didn't get as much walking in as we had hoped. Took a break from the mud and a short drive to Beaulieu Motor Museum and house, which offers CAMC members 25% discount. Pitches well spaced and despite being a large site, it didn't feel so. Plenty of showers and toilets and all immaculately clean. Food vans on site several evenings a week. Will definitely return.

Fabulous weekend at a superb site

Black Knowl Club Campsite
Perfectly located in the middle of the New Forest and a short walk/cycle ride to the beautiful town of Brockenhurst. We were delighted to get a last minute availability at this extremely popular site. Helpful and friendly staff keep the site immaculately clean and tidy and facilities spotless. Will definitely be returning.

Such a clean and peaceful site!

Black Knowl Club Campsite
Stayed here last weekend for two nights to get the caravan ready for another season. We had a lovely pitch and were made to feel very welcome by the site team. We walked to Brockenhurst one day to watch the rugby. Thanks to the not so lovely weather we have had lately it was quite soggy and muddy but the dog loved it! On our second day we drove to Keyhaven (half an hour) and walked via Hurst Spit to Milford on Sea where we made the most of the sunshine and had a delicious roast. We enjoyed the peacefulness of this site and the fact we can walk into Brockenhurst. We also loved the showers - so hot and powerful with plenty of hooks for clothes (always a winner for me)! We will definitely return.

Lovely site and very friendly staff

Black Knowl Club Campsite
We booked a long weekend at Black Knowl in March, on arrival the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The site is well located just outside Brockenhurst with excellent walking and cycling links into and around the New Forest area. The shower and toilet block was one of the cleanest we have come across and the overall site was exceptionally clean and tidy. The weather was reasonably kind to us, most of the very heavy rain was overnight and the sun actually came out long enough on our last day for us to get the awning dry before we took it down! The only negative we felt is the lack of low hedge planting between pitches/pitch areas which we like on other sites as it gives a greater sense of privacy. Apart from that we had a lovely stay and would definitely come back again.
