South Downs Way Campsites

An obvious choice for those wishing to experience the full impact of the south downs way is camping. On clear nights the stars are incredibly bright thanks to the park being designated a “dark skies national park” meaning all inhabitants are encouraged and requested to keep outside lighting to a minimum so all can enjoy the stars in the sky.

We know the idea of traipsing the south downs way with your nighttime home and clothes on your back, bike or horse might not initially sound ideal but consider the benefits you might encounter such as be fully at one with nature, you could reduce the distance travelled due to your burden and also really ‘get away from it all’ when selecting one of the below South Downs Way campsites.

South Downs Way Campsites

The South Downs National Park has a plentiful supply of managed campsites and one or two wild campsites for those wishing to plan their trip as a camping one. Use our guide to plan your camping,  walk, or short break along the south downs way.

Family camping trips are memories in the making, we all remember successful or unsuccessful camping holidays for whatever reason, so why not get out and make some memories. We do strongly advise you use our south downs campsite guide and plan the trip for the more temperate months of the year, especially if you’re taking kids.

Walking, cycling and hacking camping trips along the South Downs Way can definitely be achieved with just a little planning and spirit of adventure. If you’ve planned a camping trip along the way on foot, horse or bike we would love to know and feature the story on our site.
