If you’re looking for a campsite near Wareham, South Lytchett Manor is ideally located. Our family friendly park is suitable for all types of campers, caravanners and motorhomes. We also have some great glamping options too.
For a relaxing day out in a pretty Dorset town then Wareham is hard to beat. With an array of quaint shops, historical landmarks and bustling quayside it is a great option for a day trip away from our campsite.
Wareham is steeped in history and signs of previous inhabitants are still clear to see. It is one of the last remaining Saxon walled towns in the country. You can still take a walk along the top of walls and imagine what life was like here centuries ago.
When you fancy a bite to eat, there is no shortage of places where you can enjoy a delicious meal. Choose from the many pubs, cafes and take away eateries in the town. Or if you’re after something a bit more refined then there are a couple of country house hotels to enjoy.
The River Frome borders the southern edge of Wareham before it flows into Poole Harbour. As such you can hire a rowing boat or kayak from the Quay and pootle about whilst being surrounded by water meadows and an abundance of wildlife.
If you have enough time, why not take a river cruise? In the summer there are boat trips, which leave Wareham and go all the way to Poole Quay and back. This is a fantastic way to get your fish and chips and enjoy them in the evening sunshine.

Absolutely superb! Very speedy, efficient check in. Office couldn't do enough for you. Customer service top class. Our family party stayed in 3 dog friendly shepherds huts. Beautiful decor. Nice little self contained area for the 5 shepherd huts. Clean and modern toilet and shower facilities within less than 2 minutes. Large socially distanced communal washing up area. Large 2 acre area for exercising the dogs within 3 mins walk of shepherds huts. Couldn't fault this stay. Margaret, Apr 2021
We had a simply fabulous time at South Lytchett Manor last month. We were not sure about camping in October but the site is well insulated, the playground kept our kids well entertained and the facilities were super clean and comfortable. We loved having a shop onsite and there are water taps and electricity points in abundance.. we have stayed at a number of sites and couldn’t recommend this Beth, Nov 2020
Great campsite, really friendly and polite staff. Very clean facilities and felt ‘safe’ with all the hand sanitizer and clear signage, highly recommend - we’ll probably book one of the huts next time.... Richard , Oct 2020
