Swanage Bijou Camping
at Kirkwood Park

a precious rural gem set within the town of Swanage

2024 we shall be open from the 26th July to the 15th September.


Why not treat yourself and try our glamping site! Swanage Bijou Glamping

5 meter bell tents, fully equipped with soft furnishings, romantic lighting, comfy bed, tea and coffee and your own picnic table    

We are closer than any other campsite and an easy 7 minute level off road walk to. . .

  • Swanage Town Centre
  • Swanage Steam Railway Station
  • Swanage Pier
  • Swanages sandy beaches

Following are the top ten features that sets us aside from other camping areas around Swanage.

We are central - it's a pleasant 7 minute level walk across the park to beach, town centre, pier and station - so no traffic and parking hassles, £8 per day Council parking fees, or designated driver issues as it is an easy walk to all shops, pubs and restaurants.

We are level. Most of the areas around here are on the sides of hills.

The site is a golf course - no more tussocks or flints - but watch your step anyway!

We allow open fires and bar-b-q's by your tent for a real camping experience!

Cars are separate to the camping area - no worries about the kids playing, radios or engine noise (wheelbarrows provided to help you move your stuff the 40 meters or so).

We free camp meaning you get to choose where you like to go, and can group with friends.

Free facilities - including hot showers, lilo pumping, freezer, fridge and electric points.

We back onto huge playing fields, free adventure playground and skateboard park accessed without having to go on the road - so you can send the kids off for an hour or two to work off some energy worry free!

Quiet site, no electric hook up so no TV next door and we security patrol at night to enforce noise policy (quiet site from 11pm), and no karaoke bar!

Friendly staff who work on a personal footing with customers and will try to accommodate requests where possible (i.e. when not full), like visitor parking, late departures or early arrivals without penalty fees

AND try our own pitch and putt, footgolf or frisbee golf on-site! See Swanage Golf Games course for details!

We hope you will have a really good and memorable holiday stay with us!!
