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 now and book your next adventure online today.

Dig deep into Dorset history:

Dorset is rich in history with its traditional and mythical nature. Though tourism around Dorset has increased over the years, the regions heritage remains pure and protected thanks to charities such as the National Trust, English Heritage and places such as the Jurassic Coast receiving World Heritage Status. Dorset remains rural through and through with much of its heritage respecting lost legends. From Thomas Hardy’s birthplace and tiny cottage, this inspired his passionate novels, such as Far From the Madding Crowd, to Sherbrone New Castle, which was once the home of Sir Walter Raleigh there are sights and sounds of the past galore. Step even further back, to the Iron Age and experience Maiden Castle, one of Europeans greatest hillforts or simply walk the coastal path and take in the geology of Dorset, as old as time itself.
