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

Followed the Pingo trail- a nice little walk through forest although can get lost if you start at wrong end like us as signs have disappeared over time. The next day we cycled down a track to the disused railway line to Peddars Way and got lost as so many routes and no signs also very boggy. On the Weds we went exploring on B roads through Great Hockham off A1075 through villages to a quaint old pub in Old Buckenham(approx 10 miles) and had a glass of cider and a chat with the locals who were really friendly-was lovely. The following day we cycled through Great Hockham again on same route as the day before to the nearest town of Attleborough but turned off left under bridge after the A11 turnoff (not signposted!) it's a good job my husband looked at the road atlas 1st!. Lovely town with a good mix of supermarkets (Sains and Lidls) restaurants, banks and coffee shops. Sat and ate our picnic in the town hall sq.

This is a perfect site if you take your dog, he simply loved the forest. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. The site was kept very clean and tidy. Perfect for a restful break with plenty of fresh air walks.
