As you top the rise on the approach road, you will see Rookesbury Park Club Campsite splendidly set in tranquil parkland and filled with hedges and trees in the valley, with the magnificent Forest of Bere at its edge. For restaurants, pubs and other conveniences, the caravan site puts you within easy reach of Fareham and the village of Wickham.

An ideal choice for those with children, part of the campsite is reserved as a children's play and picnic area. As the Gateway to the South Downs, the site is ideally located for shoppers and city visitors to Portsmouth and Southampton, yet also perfectly placed to enjoy country walks and the peace and tranquillity of the Forest of Bere clearings. If you want to enjoy the outdoors while touring in Hampshire, you will be spoilt for choice because the entire area is ideal for walking, cycling and leisurely absorbing the peace and quiet of the former royal Forest of Bere. The area is abundant with wildlife and a variety of birdlife, with plenty of opportunities for keen photographers to take great nature shots.

Should you want to explore further afield, Rookesbury Park Club Campsite is well placed for everything from a day trip to the Isle of Wight to a longer visit in Portsmouth to see the restored ships of old (the Mary Rose, the Victory, the Warrior) as well as sample the local seaside shopping treats. For more fascinating history, you could also visit the Victorian Fort Nelson, a Royal Armouries collection of artillery, displaying over 350 cannons. As the site is close to Portsmouth, it's also ideal for an overnight stay when catching a ferry. Ferry pitches can be booked for a one night stay here on the website or via the App, subject to availability.

.......great site!! great staff/site team

Rookesbury Park Club Campsite
We're frequent visitors to Rookesbury Park Club site (with family living close by). The site is what it is full - of abundant, natural beauty. Just left earlier this week after 4th or 5th visit of the year and we will be returning in 2024 for probably the same number (perhaps more). However, it's a little sad as the whole staff team will be in pastures new in 2024 which is a shame but change is inevitable (apparently!). Hopefully the replacements at Rookesbury will do a grand job keeping this forest site up to the high standards. Thanks for looking after us Paul, Libby, Sal & Steve supported by others but you guys have been the backbone as it were and perhaps we will pitch up near you again........ good look and enjoy a winter rest

GOOD FRIENDLY SITE

Rookesbury Park Club Campsite
We visit Rookesbury quite regularly as it's convenient for visiting family. We never have any complaints, the site is well cared for in every area and the staff are always friendly and welcoming. We love the fact that the whole area is alive with wildlife, including loads of pheasants, rabbits, various birds etc. It's easy walking (providing the ground is reasonably dry) to The Roebuck pub and onwards on the disused railway line to Wickham, although do not attempt the long walk (approx 6 miles there and back) if you're not sure you can make it back as there are no buses to take you back (as we found out!). There is so much to do in this area too, Portsmouth is fascinating and it's definitely worth visiting the Mary Rose. Approach Portsmouth on the motorway and when you see the "sail" (you'll know when you see it) take the next exit. Follow the road and you will pick up the Park & Ride, very useful and it takes you right into Gun Wharf and the Spinnaker. Southampton and Winchester are also great days out. It feels as if you are really tucked away from the outside world at Rookesbury and once you're set up you'll be sorry to leave.

Good site with fantastic wardens

Rookesbury Park Club Campsite
Good site which is convenient for the ferry port at Portsmouth. However, if you are arriving off the late ferry the lighting up the the very narrow lane to the site is non existent and maneuvering on to the ferry pitches in the darkness is difficult. The site is good with very clean and tidy facilities and extremely helpful and friendly wardens.

Fabulous!

Rookesbury Park Club Campsite
Love this site. We were supposed to stay for a week but our next site was waterlogged (in a heat wave!) so we were able to add on another week keeping the same pitch. The plots are tidy and very spacious. Everywhere is clean. The shower blocks are modern and are spotless no matter which time of day. I like the way they have set up four or five waste disposal sites around the site instead of having a single compound. These are emptied every morning so there is no issue with smell & insects etc. The management and staff are superb. Always smiling and very helpful plus they seem, quite rightly, proud of the place. The location is great, nestled in a clearing in a forest so there lots of walks and a very nice atmosphere. The area has lots to do. Portsmouth, Wareham and Southampton plus the local market town of Wickham is delightful with the old town square, disused railway line which is great for walks plus the odd vineyard on the way. There are many other places to visit. We are going to have to go back next year to finish the current list off!! My only negative is the WI-FI. Being located on a hill in a forest the phone reception is bad and the WI-FI isn't much better. I gather this a general problem with club sites which hopefully will be sorted soon.
