Safari tents near Skegness guide


Skegness is a charming coastal town that greets campers with a sandy beach, lively pier, and high-speed fun at Skegness Raceway. On top of all that, visitors have their pick when it comes to campsites. Choose from rustic grass pitches with rustic amenities, fully-equipped caravan parks, and one-of-a-kind rentals like refurbished wooden wagons. Then, get lifted on the rope course in Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or have a leisurely stroll along one of its many walking trails. Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve calls all birdwatchers to its towering cliffs and diverse landscape, while Rutland Water offers an epic lake-top waterpark, iconic trout fishing, and lots of boat rentals.

Where to go

Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Savour classic English countryside views on a trip through the sweeping hills of Lincolnshire Wolds AONB. Take to Lindsey Trail for walking, cycling, and horseback riding, or enjoy heart-racing fun on the high ropes course in Wild Pines Park. Stay overnight in nearby Lincolnshire on a grassy hillside with views of Belvoir Castle. Pet-friendly bell tents are also available with shower facilities or opt for a one-of-a-kind stay in a renovated wagon that has access to bathrooms and a firepit.

Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve

Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve is a well-known bird observatory, showcasing 100-foot high chalk cliffs and dozens of migratory bird species. The landscape features saltwater marshes, lagoon areas, sandy beaches, and grass-filled meadows. Snuggle into a mini wooden lodge with views of Steeping River in close proximity to the reserve. A private deck with patio furniture and a hot tub makes it even more welcoming after a day of exploring. There are also many caravan parks located just outside the reserve boundary that feature full hookups, dump stations, and wifi.

Rutland Water

Stretching over 4,200 acres, the Rutland Water area is a popular summertime destination with abundant aquatic activities. Slip and slide through the waterpark, fish for trout in the reservoir, or set sail to explore the man-made lake on canoes, kayaks, SUPs, and row boats, which are all available for hire through local companies. Then, reserve a grass pitch at a rugged farm campsite with firepits and picnic tables, or drive the motorhome into a holiday park with full hookups.

When to go

Summer in Skegness has the warmest temperatures of the year, though rain is still common. January and February are coldest, so look for heated lodges and glamping pods with wood-burning fireplaces in winter. Anglers should plan to visit Rutland Water from March until early June. And though Gibraltar Point gets flocked with migratory visitors year-round, campers looking for particular species should check which seasons they come through the area.
