Camping at Riverside Lakes

Our office on site will be your first meeting with us, we will check you in for your stay, go through any information and questions you have and direct you to your pitch. We ask out campers to sign disclaimers for everyone included in their party, so we know who is on site at each time. Day guests are welcome at a charge, but all must check in at the office, even if they’ve been before.

Biggest Moto on our site is ‘BE NICE TO YOUR FELLOW CAMPERS OR GO HOME.’ 

Our New Booking System

Our new booking system will make booking a reservation at riverside lakes so much easier, as it allows you to project forward, you can see what pitches are free for dates you have in mind. 

Tranquillity is still only bookable by phone. So give Kelly a call in the office or an email on bookings@riversidelakes.co.uk and she will get back to you as soon as possible.

Glamping Bell Tents

Enjoy the freedom of camping without the feeling of having to rough it. Riverside Lakes Glamping lets you Live Along Nature without missing out on home comforts and is perfect anyone  who is not to sure what to expect from a camping experience.

Picture yourself relaxing our luxury accommodation, waking up in the beauty of nature surrounded by beautiful  Dorset countryside, or enjoying a glass of wine while the kids play nearby.

Living alongside Nature

We mow parts of the land to create the camping areas and paths to walk around but much is left as natural meadow, woods and shrubs as we feel it is better to share the space equally with nature rather than commercialise it and fill it up with campers.enjoy the great outdoors experience where you can have a chat around a real fire.
