Welcome to the Red Shoot Camping Park in the picturesque New Forest

COVID-19 statement

As you will be aware, the situation regarding Coronavirus is worrying, uncertain and fast changing.

It is with a heavy heart that we regret to advise of the closure of The Red Shoot Camping Park with immediate effect as per the advice from the Government. These are unprecedented times and, along with everyone else, we cannot predict what will happen next.   We all have a responsibility to consider not just ourselves but the people of our country and the local community and, as a result, we are having to make decisions and take actions which were unimaginable a few weeks ago.

If you have already made a booking with us to arrive before 12th June 2020, you should receive an email from us very soon.

If you have any questions or concerns you can email us at and we will respond as quickly as possible.

Please be assured, we will do all we can to be ready to resume business as soon as this crisis passes and we very much hope to be able to welcome you to us soon

If you’re looking for a family friendly camping holiday in a beautiful part of The New Forest, then a stay with us at the Red Shoot Camping Park is exactly what you’ve been searching for.
