Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

20 years in and still enjoy every visit. Some would say that I’ve not experienced any other park or type of holiday and only you can tell yourselves which it is, but this place still amazes me and makes me very happy! Reading the 1* Daily Mail readers reviews made me laugh. If you feel the need to give a 1* I’m normal around pitch 46 April/May and a cheeky week in the summer, let’s have a beer in the Stour Inn and see if we can get you to at least a 3*.( I’m just trying to get a reduction in my storage fees). Play nice people.

We've been coming to this site for around 6 years and absolutely love it. It's a perfect base for visiting Bournemouth/Poole/Weymouth and has a great atmosphere. I really love taking a walk around the park in the evening seeing everyone out enjoying campfires and kid's having fun. It really is our happy place

What an amazing place! We have been coming here for the last 20 years, it is our happy place. Clean, welcoming, peaceful, fabulous surroundings, yet central for easy access to those seaside days should you wish. Definitely recommend The Inside Park.

Lovely campsite with big open spacious pitches. Facilities are clean and tidy and the water was always hot in the showers. Showers could do with a bit of a upgrade thou as the water pressure isn't great. Play park and football area are fantastic. Overall, a lovely holiday and we will be returning next year.
