Shepherd's huts near Huntingdon with fishing guide

Overview

This market town in the south of the Fens is a hotspot for boating, biking, wildlife watching, and more. Adventurers on a time budget can enjoy a quintessentially English camping experience within the town itself, not missing the many nature reserves in the area, while those with a little more time can go further afield to discover a diverse range of English landscapes, including pine forests, Romantic countryside, and chalk downlands. From family-friendly campgrounds on the Great River Ouse to wild-style sites deep in ancient woodland, Huntingdon and its scenic surrounds offer something for every Hipcamper.

Where to go

Around Huntingdon

There’s no need to travel far to find quality campsites in this riverside town. Several sites offer boat moorings and camping pitches along the Great River Ouse, making this a top spot for boaters. Ramblers and riders will find trails in nearby Godmanchester Nature Reserve, Portholme, Houghton Meadows, and Brampton Wood, while wildlife watchers can get their fill at sites such as Shepherd’s Close and Grafham Water, known for their abundance of birds and flora.

The Fens

Sprawling from Huntingdon all the way up to Wisbech in the north and Newmarket in the east, this ancient landscape boasts caravan parks, riverside marinas, and glampsites aplenty, offering plenty by way of watersports and wilderness trekking. The Great Fen expanse just north of Huntingdon is a top spot for afterdark adventure, with its status as a Dark Sky Discovery Site, plus wildlife-rich reserves to explore during the day.

The Brecks

At the heart of this conservation area stands Thetford Forest Park, a deep pine woodland home to nature trails, kid’s play areas, and rivers ideal for a spot of wild swimming. Beyond, pingo ponds, violet heathlands, and tiny villages provide plenty more to explore. Accommodation options include working farm campsites, glamping lodges, and woodland retreats.

Dedham Vale AONB

A 90-minute drive from Huntingdon, this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is best known for its Constable Country, a rural region immortalised in the works of Romantic painter John Constable. Rich in walking trails and cycle routes, Dedham Vale is a favourite among active adventurers, with wild-style camping and caravan parks widely available.

Chiltern Hills AONB

Discover quintessential English countryside in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, around 90 minutes southwest of Huntingdon. Rolling hills harbour ancient forests and winding waterways, while the successful reintroduction of red kites makes this a top destination for birdwatchers. No-frills farm sites, kid-friendly campgrounds, and relaxed holiday parks provide plenty of options. 

When to go

Like much of England, Huntingdon and the wider Fens are most popular during summer, when long days allow for hours of outdoor exploration. As a wetland, much of the region is flooded over winter, with many campsites closing. But for those that remain open, winter brings its own charms, including migratory birds and dramatic seasonal vistas.

Know before you go

  • This region is a camping hotspot, so supplies can be easily collected in Huntingdon or any neighboring town.
  • Many campsites and nature trails in the area are dog-friendly, as long as you bring a lead.
  • Kayaking and canoeing gear can be hired at some riverside campsites.
  • Wild swimming is popular in the Fens, though take all precautions as the rivers and water meadows can be unpredictable.
  • Huntingdon Station is relatively well connected, but for hassle-free access to more remote spots it’s worth bringing or hiring a private vehicle.
