Can anyone recommend a good campsite in Dorset?

We're looking to camp as a group of three tents. Ideally, we'd like nice showers, loos etc and possibly campfire. Does anyone have any personal recommendations?

Try Longthorns Farm - new shower/loo block opened this year and it's right next to Monkey World.

Thanks for the recommendation Milliways. Have you stayed there recently? Do you know if it gets very crowded?

We love longthorns too. Even when busy there is plenty of space.

If you're going in August, Eweleaze. There are nice showers and loos there (albeit some of the loos are compost ones so you do have to seek the regular ones out). Campfires are a must there, the site has its own (stony) beach and the views from some of the fields are amazing. Plus it is brilliant for small children if you have any - haybales to climb, guinea pigs to cuddle etc.

Good to hear new shower block is open Milliways, the showers were Longhorns only weak point! Riverside Lakes also fantastic site and Burnbake near Studland lovely woodland site.

eastfleetfarm.co.uk is fantastic. We have been there twice now abd it was excellent both times. The owners are extremely helpful too.

You can't have a campfire as such but we used our BBQ as one!

We were at Longthorns in May and it was quiet, but out of season. Owners were lovely, as were the Alpacas.
We recently stayed at Sea Barn Farm ( shared facilities with West Fleet Farm) and that was in a lovely spot, good looks etc, but no campfires.

Only negative is to shower button needs pressing every 5 seconds!

Burnbake - fabulous place - best by a long way in our opinion!

Show block looks much improved Milliways! The showers before were awful. Who ever thought a salon style door to a shower right in front of the door from the outside was a good idea needs their head examined! Sea Barn view looks lovely, do they allow campfires Miilways?

Sadly not, not even a raised fire pit - BBQs had to be coal or gas only, no wood sad lovely area though.
