Swanage Coastal Park is our quietest park and is the perfect campsite to explore some of the South’s most celebrated seaside locations, as well as the famous Jurassic Coast.

The hillside location of this park, just above the town itself, means that our pitches here offer stunning views over the Bay, as well as across the Purbeck Hills.
