We only stayed one night on a whim over the bank holiday weekend to give my youngest her first taste of camping. The location is lovely, the shop with its freshly baked bread and croissant is a bonus and it was very well organised and clean! My kids loved the sand pit and play area and the pub next door...

Excellent and well maintained site, good clean facilities, I fully recommend this site to anyone that enjoys a trip to the new forest. It's a friendly, family run camp site with a great pub next door !! We will definitely be back !

We are a family of 4 (and 1 Labrador!) who stayed during the Easter school break. We found the pitch more than adequate to accommodate our campervan and awning and 2 cricket mad boys! The showers and toilets were immaculate and the water hot. The shop was well stocked and we were able to buy all the bits that we... More

We stayed at this site over the Bank Holiday Weekend... Couldn't fault it in any way. The pitches were clearly marked and the staff could not have been more helpful with fantastic knowledge about the surrounding area. The shop has everything you could possibly need and the pub next door has great food and wine. Perfectly located for exploring the... More

We returned to the Red Shoot Camping Park over the early May Bank Holiday weekend, and though the weather was not great, our camping break was fantastic. This family run site, in a superb location, is well run and offers some excellent facilities including a well stocked shop. It looks after its campers, even in bad weather, and the staff... More

I ve just returned with my family, after a 5 day fabulous break at this gem in the heart of the forest. This is our 3rd time and we ve already booked to go back in July. The place is spotlessly clean, the staff are just fantastic and they could nt do enough to make sure our stay was faultless!... More

Stayed here over the May Bank Holiday weekend. Great situation in the forest, near walks and cycle tracks, plus good roads for cycling. Staff very helpful, nothing is too much trouble, and well stocked shop on site. Plus very good pub next to site, with excellent food at sensible prices and good beer. Plenty of hot water in the showers,... More

Hi Anne, thank you for the great review of your recent stay, we are keen to hear any feedback from our customers but it is particularly nice to hear such positive comments. I agree that the cycling from here is fantastic and in fact, one of the official cycle routes starts directly from our camping park, from which the whole... More

My friends and I were greatly looking forward to camping over the May bank holiday and choose The Red Shoot Camping park for its great location. However, in one swift line and to sum it up quickly, I think I would rather electrocute myself where it hurts than stay in this overpriced campsite again. The pitches were not clearly laid... More

I am sorry you are disappointed with your stay with us. All our pitches have clear disc markers which we point out when we take you to your pitch. We resolved your placement issues by allocating your group 4 pitches for your 3 units to give you extra space. As regards dog mess, we tell all campers with dogs that... More

Stayed for three nights and found the facilities good apart from the showers that put water EVERYWHERE, not only in the family bathroom and disabled facilities that my husband tried to use, but also in the female showers. I had been warned so I was very careful to put my clothing etc as far away as possible and still there... More

Thank you for your review and comments, especially for noting the good bits in terms of the copious hot water and cleanliness - our staff work very hard on keeping the facilities clean and we welcome recognition of this. .

We have been visiting 2/3 times a year for 15 years mainly for the beer festivals. Enjoy the location and site, but recent years have seen prices increase to the point that people we have met here over the years are no longer coming due to the exorbitant charges. Nearly £100 for 3 nights in a tent....? Friends paid £... More

Thank you for your review. I’m not sure when you stayed with us as we are not open in December and without knowing the make up of the units you have quoted, I’m not able to give a breakdown of how the costs were calculated, but would comment that our basic pitch prices have not changed since 2013 when there...
