Campsites in Dorset
Campsites in Dorset are like jewels in a countryside crown, with heaps of excellent camping options to be found. Dorset is a county of contrasts, offering the best of countryside, coastline, ancient ruins and family attractions all in one. Home to the famous Jurassic Coast, with its craggy rocks and steep cliffs, you’ll find plenty of campsites that capitalize on the good views or the shelter of pebbled bays. Seaside campsites aren't hard to come by and there are some excellent campsites within walking distance of the beach, while, away from the seaside and beaches, camping in the countryside offers ample opportunities too. Across Dorset there is a good selection of campsites for tent camping, campervans and caravans, while glamping in Dorset is also growing in popularity – you can now leave your tent at home and spend your night in a yurt, shepherd's hut or gypsy caravan instead. As always, we at Cool Camping have bypassed the big commercial holiday parks and plucked only for the very best campsites in Dorset for our collection. Browse our favourite Dorset campsites below and book your next adventure online today.
