Visited with my partner and our 2 dogs. Lovely campsite, very basic I.e no showers. We pitched our tent in The Glades and were more or less the only people there. Beautiful walks, plenty of wildlife. Yes you can hear the traffic but it's a small price to pay for such a lovely setting. Will definitely come back.

We have stayed here numerous times. No facilities but as we have a motor home with on board shower and loo that's no problem. If you like peace and quiet and getting away from the rows of campers you get on some sites then this is for you. You can camp where you like. Perfect if you like watching wildlife... More

Just returned from one night here. Well located for go ape and has a very pleasant setting. Plenty of good, clean toilet facilities and nice secluded spots to pitch on. Loved all the wild ponies (even though one did come and steal all our crackers) We would definitely come back again.

This was our first camping trip with the children and it could not have been more perfect. We chose to set out tent up in a more secluded part surrounded by trees. The surroundings were very beautiful. My children were amazed by the ponies, donkies, cows and Shetland ponies. All the animals were very calm and didn't bother us. By... More

Stayed here for 4 nights, staff were very welcoming and friendly. If in a tent like we were you can really chose a nice secluded area that makes you feel you are camping in the forest rather than a site. As others have said, you will need Rock Pegs as ground very hard. Clean toilets. Beautiful surroundings set literally in... More

We were looking for a couple of nights camping to have some quiet time and stumbled across this little spot. Quiet location, spotless toilets, tidy washing up area, free of rubbish, friendly camp staff and very helpful. This was also helped by meeting fellow campers who were after exactly the same as us, just some peace and quiet. If your... More

We camped at this site and have found it very peaceful. We have been camping throughout Europe for over 30 yrs.

Had a great time at this site, very peaceful and a beautiful area. On arriving the staff were very friendly and the facilities were clean and tidy. I am 22 and camped here before a cycling sportive. Good night sleep, would definitely go again.

What a lovely setting in the New Forest. There are open areas, areas with trees, a very clean toilet block.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ocknell campsite is perfect for campers of all abilities. Situated on a quiet expanse of heathland with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside, this site offers direct access from your tent to beautiful heathland and forest walks, as well as the New Forest cycle route. Facilities Rally field Tents Touring caravans Motorhomes Trailer tents Jumbo tent pitches Grassy pitches Hardstanding pitch Seasonal pitches Toilets Washbasins Electric razor sockets Some disabled facilities Chemical toilet disposal Drinking water taps Dishwashing facilities Ice pack freezing facility Pets welcome Just a short drive away is the tiny, but beautiful, village of Fritham with its thatched cottages, gorgeous lake, ducks and ponies wondering freely down the street. At just over four miles long, Fritham Walk, one of the most popular walks within the New Forest, is a popular highlight. Looking north over Islands Thorns and Amberwood Enclosures as the route heads back towards the car park, film fans might recognise the landscape as Sherwood Forest from Kevin Costner's Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves. At Bramshaw there is a well-stocked local shop, while a stunning short cycle ride takes you to Deer Viewing at Bolderwood and into the heart of the New Forest. A little further afield lies the cathedral city of Salisbury and the World Heritage Site of Stonehenge. After a busy day sightseeing, you can then return to your tent to experience all the wonders of the forest at night. Please note that due to hard ground, rock pegs are essential at Ocknell. Pitch types at Ocknell There are 280 standard pitches at Ocknell, of which 150 are hardstanding Longbeech campsite consists of beautiful open clearings overlooked by ancient beechwood which are a haven for local birdlife, including nuthatches, siskins, blue tits and coal tits. In addition, the campsite is often visited by the New Forest's famous, free-roaming ponies and deer.
