Moreton Camping and Caravanning Club Site is situated a short distance outside the popular market town of Dorchester, and is one of the most prominent and well-known caravan parks in Dorset. The park is open from late March until early January, and welcomes tents and touring campervans to a number of pitches. Visitors to the park can benefit from full access to electricity hook-ups to their pitch, as well as convenient facilities including laundry, washing up, and waste disposal. We also offer guests Wi-Fi internet access for keeping up to date with life at home via their mobile device or laptop.
Our park is pet and child friendly, with a play area for kids to run off their excess energy after an exciting day spend on the Dorset coast or around the countryside, while a range of open spaces and walking trails make it an excellent place to bring the dog.
The site is situated yards from Moreton train station and a short walk from Moreton village itself. Moreton sits on the River Frome, which itself offers opportunities for riverside walks and fishing if either of those appeals to you. The most appealing aspect of the local area is the opportunities to explore popular towns like Weymouth and Bournemouth. Although the local villages and Dorchester have plenty to offer in terms of shops and places to eat and drink, these busy, lively centres can cater for your every need, whether you want to have the best choice of restaurants or are looking to enjoy a trip to the theatre. What you also get from both towns is the opportunity to explore beyond the Dorset coast. Regular boat trips run from both towns to the Isle of Wight, Guernsey, Jersey, and even to northern France. Take a trip to Dorest and explore far beyond the county borders!
Of course, one of the most famous aspects of Dorset is its coastline, and once you’ve seen it you’ll probably decide this is where you would like to holiday time and again in the future. While the main seaside towns all have popular beaches, it is worth taking a cliff top walk along the coastline yourself and finding secluded sands for yourself; why share with thousands when you could discover your own private beach?
Whatever your interests, Moreton Camping and Caravanning Site is a great base for exploring the coastline, the countryside, and the popular towns of the local area, and is a place you are sure to love and tell friends and family about!

Lovely site from the Camping and Caravanning club. Friendly wardens and a really lovely atmosphere. The shower/wash blocks were beautifully clean and there were family washrooms with good facilities for dealing with the little ones. The play area had good equipment and kept our little ones very happy. The site itself is quite open and the pitches are a little regimented but we were there at peak season and it was very full. The biggest bonus is the railway station across the road with a regular service to Weymouth to save the hassle and cost of parking near the beach. All in all a very nice site.
