Campsite closed for the winter, re-opening end of April 2021 (weather permitting).
Welcome to Burnbake
Burnbake is a magical, woodland oasis surrounded by dramatic coastlines, blue flag beaches, coves, ridges and valleys at the gateway to the World Heritage Jurassic coastline.
Children can be children, enjoying a sense of freedom and good old fashioned play, beavering by the stream, hiding in the woods and foraging in the forest. A rural wildlife haven, rabbits hop at your feet, birds sing, butterflies dance and squirrels – well, squirrel! We have Sika deer too.
As twilight falls, campfires crackle and marshmallows wait to be toasted. During peak season, our little eatery serves breakfast and evening meals to take-away or eat alfresco.
So, whether you prefer the traditional charm of camping or a touch of luxury with a stay in one of our chic lodges, kickback, relax and enjoy a back-to-nature adventure in Burnbake’s great outdoors.
We are happy to have been awarded the VisitEngland “We’re Good To Go” industry mark to signal that we have worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and have a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.

The high number of repeat visitors is testament to the charm of this site, which has 130 pitches, close to the sandy delights of the beaches at Studland Bay, a short drive away and the proximity of excellent cycle paths means it is worth bringing children's bikes. Corfe Castle and Swanage are just six miles away. Facilities include showers, washing machines, baby-changing facilities and a small shop stocking camping and cooking equipment.
Burnbake - Corfe Castle, Dorset
Burnbake is devoted to good, old-fashioned fun. The big draw is the woods that surround the site, where children often disappear for hours on end, discovering the joys of swinging on ropes and building dens.
Top-of-primary kids in particular have a ball here, living a Swallows and Amazons existence while you chill out round your campfire (off-the- ground fires only), beer in hand.
There's an excellent shop on site and a yurt pizza outlet in high season all of you will relish. The beautiful three-mile-long beach at Studland Bay is close at hand, and Swanage has lots of old-fashioned seaside activities including putting, tennis and bowls, and a couple of great fish-and-chip shops.

The vibe: Full-on family escapades.
Highlights: This is the camp for those with children who enjoy fresh-air and mud. It sits snugly in a forest, beside a stream. Bring your bikes for family jaunts on the many cycle paths; likewise, buckets and spades for the nearby Blue Flag beaches in Swanage and Studland. The South-West coast path is close, as is beautiful Corfe Castle.
