Site & Facilities

Burnbake is a family owned 12 acre partially wooded campsite situated between Corfe Castle and Studland in the beautiful Isle of Purbeck with the emphasis on family camping.  We have 108 largely level pitches, some open and sunny and some shaded under the trees.  Please note we CANNOT ACCEPT CARAVANS due to a restriction on our licence.  Burnbake is also home to 22 luxury forest lodges each with its own hot tub.  Wareham and Swanage are within a 20 minute drive as is the Toll Ferry to Poole and Bournemouth.  The nearest beaches are Studland and Shell Bay 3 miles away.  We are a turn up and pitch, first come first served campsite with no marked out pitches.  We have a pop up booking system for the Whitsun weekend and August Bank holiday weekend ONLY.  You cannot book any other dates.  All arrivals please check in at Reception.

The site comprises of two camping areas.  The Main Campsite has natural divisions and some shade and houses all the facilities.  The neighbouring Events field is more open but bordered on one side by woodland and a stream.  Both have water points.

We allow dogs and at no charge but with the proviso that they are kept on leads at all times and that the owners clear up after them of course.

We would always ask that you respect your camping neighbours by keeping a safe distance between pitches and allowing their peaceful enjoyment of this site ie quiet after 10.30pm please

Burnbake does allow wood fires but ONLY in fire pits/containers off the ground.  Ground fires are strictly forbidden due to our peat soil base.

Burnbake's facilities :

There are 2 facility blocks both on the Main campsite.

The larger block contains Ladies and Gents toilets and showers and wash up sinks.

The smaller contains just unisex showers, a baby changing area and a small coin operated laundrette facility and again wash up sinks. A CDP disposal point is also provide behind the Shop.

Burnbake Shop

We have a small but well stocked shop on the Main Campsite.  Opening hours vary according to the season but the minimum hours are 8.30am until 10am in the mornings and again 5pm to 6.30pm every evening. A small stock of essentials may also be stocked in reception.

We stock a variety of groceries, treats, ice creams, toys and camping goods and try to use local suppliers wherever possible. This will not make us as competitively priced as the local supermarkets but we hope you find the difference worth it! 

Freezer packs are available for hire at 50p per block.  We don't offer a freezing service for your own packs unfortunately.

Fire pits and picnic benches are available for hire. You will need to leave a cash deposit and pay a nightly hire fee currently £5 per night.

Calor and camping gaz bottles are available for refill

Play area

We have a small adventure play area for younger children
