Thetford Forest Camping

Thetford Forest straddles the North of Suffolk and the south of Norfolk and is the largest lowland pine forest in Britain, planted after the first world war to replenish the country's timber reserves after so much of our indiginous trees had been used to feed the war's demands. Within Thetford Forest lies Breckland Forest which has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest, with a high level of biodiversity; although the forest has only been in existence for a century it is not uncommon to see hares and game-birds; roe deer, red deer and Muntjac roam freely and bird-watchers enjoy the presence of scarce bird species like Woodlark, Nightjar and Goshawk. Thetford Forest camping places its visitors at the heart of this vast natural network and provides a unique camping UK experience.

Camping in Thetford Forest



If peace, tranquility and relaxation are over-rated in your opinion and you are looking for some forest-based action then you might want to consider Thetford Forest camping for the mountain-biking that's so popular here. Several marked trails are suitable for family bike riding but there are also more challenging routes for experienced riders - the section known as The Beast is legendary...quake. If you want to balance on high wires, fling yourself off ledges on bungees and generally loosen your stomach, then try Go-Ape in the forest and plenty of other 'adventure play' for young and old.

Of course, others know Thetford as a live music venue with bands from across the eras playing on stage in the forest setting. Camping Thetford Forest really is a varied experience, the authorities working hard to ensure that visitors form all walks of life are catered for.

Search our listings for available campsites in Thetford Forest and the surrounding area. Use the 'things to do' tab on each site's individual listing for ideas on where to eat and other attractions to visit. if you're after two-wheeled excitement, the 'cycle route' tab on each site's listing will be an invaluable planning tool.
