Arriving on Easter Monday, I was expecting the campsite to be extremely busy. On the contrary, there were just a couple of other tents and a few mobile homes. It was extremely quiet, we were blessed with sunny Spring weather and frequent wildlife visitors; deer, pony's, rabbits, birds. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful throughout our stay and we... More

We wanted to stay local and chose Ocknell to use our caravan. It was excellent and would recommend the site to anyone. There are no showers or electric hook-ups and therefore need your own facilities. There are toilets in a nearby block. The staff are very good but the site charges seem to escalate if you want "extras", like staying... More

We recently stayed at the Ocknell Campsite based in the New Forest, for a 2 day camping trip. The site was clean tidy and well maintained. Although there are no shower facilities on site, there are toilets, dish washing facilities and plenty of hot water. Yes, you can sometimes hear the noise of the road nearby, but to be honest,...

What a shame. Such a lovely campsite but very poorly run!! Having arrived as a group of 5 friends, we were greeted with 'there's a £20 behaviour bond for groups of 4 and more, that you get back at the end of your stay'. We agreed as we knew we would be behaved as we weren't out to have a... More

Positives: As a small group of 2 arriving on a Sunday and leaving Tuesday morning the site was quite empty, hardy anyone there. Those that were there all seemed pleasant and cheerful, mostly the elderly generation. The site was kept tidy (no litter) and the toilets were very clean. The new forest all around. Big beautiful and massive. Whilst camping... More

The site is beautiful and brimming with wild life. In the two days we were there we had the pleasure of seeing, quite up close, Deer, Ponies (almost in our tent), Squirrel, Woodpeckers, Rabbits.... i could on but you get the idea. This was a perfect place to take our children on their first camping experience, they absolutely loved the... More

I camped at longbeech for 1 week each year for 17 years as a child with a caravan and tent and there were five of us. Longbeech is only half open now due to overuse. My husband had never camped here so we stayed at ocknell for two nights. Loved it. We had a four berth tent and although there... More

I never write reviews on the places I visit but I must let everyone know about the unprofessionalism and rudeness of certain wardens that work at Ocknell campsite. I paid my well earned money to stay at this campsite and I would be expecting wardens to help and support the campers not speak to them like children and accuse campers... More

We camped August bank hol and found lovely spot separated by trees and one that backed onto open plain. There are no showers but the toilet facilities good and drinking water and chem disposal available. Having read other bad reviews but we found site lovely and the rangers we encountered very friendly, joking with us that any beer to be... More

Basic camp site, no showers (how do they expect folk to clean themselves?), wild horses and their leavings everywhere and a noisy motorway close by. Staff were very helpful but don't always trust their directions: I was sent on a two-hour wild goose chase for camping gas. The new forest is great, but won't be returning to Ocknell.
