Birchwood Tourist Park is a touring caravan and camping site located three miles drive from the town of Wareham, and is centrally located for visiting Bournemouth, Poole, The Isle of Purbeck, Dorchester, Weymouth and the Jurassic coastline. We are an open, rural Park surrounded by Wareham Forest, our boundary adjoining the forest so with direct access for walking and cycling. Dogs are welcome on a short lead. We are open most of the year, including over Christmas and New Year when our block-paved hard-standing serviced pitches are open. There is a well-stocked shop in the Reception, two toilet blocks with free showers and we offer a range of pitches; including block-paved hard-standings with gravel area for awning, grass pitches or gravel pitches, fully serviced (16 amp electric hook up, water & drain connection points and TV socket point), or electric hook ups (10 amp) connection and plenty of space for tents. We have a barrier system for entry and exit onto the Park, operated by a number- plate recognition system linked to your booking and which deactivates overnight to prevent cars driving onsite after 10.00 pm and before 7 am. The Park is set in 27 acres and has a large separate games field for ball games, tennis area, kite flying or group activities. We also have a 2 foot (0.6m) deep unheated paddling pool for the children, a sandpit, swings and play area near the central toilet block.

We have just returned from an 8 night stay on this site. We were on a fully serviced pitch. My first impression on arrival was, OMG there are so many pitches with caravans on this site it’s going to be horrid! (We like quite sites), when booking we knew it was a big site but

The staff here were exceptionally helpful when we initially enquired about a stay. We were arriving late and they were very accommodating. The site is well maintained and clean. I cannot comment about the facilities as we use those in our RV - however looking at the site I

Hello, it's lovely to hear you are joining the Nordic walkers. Yes our site is open and we can accommodate single persons, our pricing is calculated nightly for a pitch plus the adults. We are a touring park so we have the pitch and the customer supply their own accommodation to stay in, such as a tent or caravan or motorhome. We have two toilet blocks with free showers and a small laundry and shop onsite. If this would suit you please email us with the dates and we can give you prices and more info. We hope you enjoy your walking holiday and get to see some of the wonderful parts of Dorset.

Yes the children's paddling pool opens at the end of May (on the second May Bank holiday weekend) and stays open during the day (weather permitting) through June, July and August until the August Bank Holiday Monday. So it will be open when you come and stay, we look forward to seeing you in June. The paddling pool is 2 ft deep (0.6m) unheated and unsupervised.

We struggle to provide full coverage of WiFi around the Park due to being surrounded by the Forest and having no access to fibre-optic cable. The mobile phone and internet signal is limited to some parts of the park, and in some places is non- existent. We have Park WiFi codes that you can buy from the Shop starting at £1.50 for varying lengths of time (from one hour to 14 days), although we cannot guarantee the speed or reliability of the internet signal.

Are dogs allowed?
Yes, we welcome dogs kept on a short lead while on the Park. We have direct access into the forest for waking and they are free of charge in low and mid season.

"All questions were geared towards hotels - this clearly isn't so I've answered with site in mind!"
"I prefer the pitches in front of the caravan and motorhome storage area near the lower block."
"We were on pitch 46 near the woods so others away from the trees may be less prone to midgies!."
