Thetford Club campsite is surrounded by natural history & ideal for walkers & cyclists.

Sitting on the edge of Britain’s largest lowland pine forest, our Thetford Forest Club campsite is ideal for those looking to explore Norfolk’s towns and cities like Norwich and Bury St Edmunds, the Broads, or heading to coast for some traditional seaside fun at Great Yarmouth or the more peaceful Southwold.

While at your base at Thetford campsite you can be sure of a relaxed and comfortable stay. The tree-lined campsite is spacious, level and well laid out. Its 150 pitches are split over separate camping areas and the excellent facilities include a parent and child room, a children’s play area set within a fenced recreation field, a dog walk and you can fish for carp, tench and roach on the campsite’s fishing pond.

The local area is ideal for walking and cycling. The Peddars Way National Trail passes close to the campsite while the forest offers boundless opportunities for outdoor activity. The High Lodge Forest Centre has play equipment, sculpture trails and for teenagers there's Go Ape!

Other nearby attractions include Banham Zoo, home to some of the world’s most exotic, rare and endangered animals, BeWILDerwood, a quirky adventure park in Wroxham and Dinosaur Adventure with dinosaur trails, play areas and an animal encounter.

This review is for Thetford Forest

We have just returned from our second winter stay at this site, and have thoroughly enjoyed it once again! The very friendly HSM greeted us upon our arrival, and showed us to our pitch. The site has an delegated area for dogs, where you can let them off the lead. There are lovely woodland walks off the site, only drawback is that there was rather alot of dog mess. Considering the number of dogs bins provided around the site, this is shameful! The pitches are very well spaced so you are never over looked by the next unit. Good childrens play area, will definately return.

Love this site - my usual stop for the start of the season shake down.

This review is for Thetford Forest

Love this site - my usual stop for the start of the season shake down. Welcome is friendly, staff know how to get you settled on your pitch, facilities clean and well lit (water hot!). Site is quiet, except for the dawn chorus provided by the birds. Access is down a single lane road, but it has a passing place so it's never caused me any troubles. Woodland to the back of the site provides nice walks and the site is dog friendly (great for when my Nan visits with her mut). Will keep going back whenever I need a quick break away.

A lovely peaceful site. HUGE field at back - suitable for groups. Pond on site too.

This review is for Thetford Forest

A lovely peaceful site. HUGE field at back - suitable for groups. Pond on site too. Site is directly next to Thetford Forest, with lots of walks laid out for you. Pitches are open plan and sizable. Toilet block is well equipped - modern and clean and very warm (we went in February!). The site is quite dark at night, with lights around the toilet block but not on the pitches/ roads to the toilet block, so I recommend taking a torch!!! We will definitely be visiting again!
