Went camping with my brother here for a couple of nights in the middle of August. We didn't book, so thought we may not be able to get a pitch, although we were actually one of only two tents in the whole park. Mostly filled with Campervans and Caravans, Birchwood is a large camping park with clean toilets & showers and full of plenty of green spaces for games etc. There is also a shop on site which has lots of snacks and food/drink to buy. Interesting to see that during peak time it wasn't full at all, but it isn't because the campsite doesn't have the necessary facilities for an enjoyable few days away.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
