Really lovely site
Really enjoyed this campsite. The showers and toilets were cleaned twice a day and kept in good order. There was hot water for washing up! The field was lovely and flat with very few stones. Loads of space for the kids to play and easy access to the canal.

We had a great time at canal camping. It was big enough for the kids to explore but had a good sight of them at all times. My kids instantly mad friends with the kid in the next tent and couldn't wait to return. Fire wood was easily accessible, fire pits were dotted around the campsite. The site manager was so helpful (kids left the light burning in the car and he lent us his jum leads). Showers and toilets were clean and 15 minutes drive to the closest beach. All in all we very much enjoyed our stay.

Excellent campsite with great facilities (including firepits), the canoes were the highlight of our trip!

Great little spot
Loved this site, although we arrived late in the evening so had to pitch up in the middle which wouldn't have been our first preference as it meant we had noise coming from all sides as there were several large groups - everyone was respectful though and the site was quiet from 10 pm. Showers and toilets were clean and comfortable - showers, in particular, are spacious and easy to change in. We rented the canoes on site and had a lovely day in the water. All in all, a great little spot.

Idyllic!
Nicest campsite we’ve ever been to! Facilities so clean, no need to queue for loos etc. hot showers, all spotless! Paddling on the canal was so great, a real adventure. We wouldn’t set off with paddleboards again though from the campsite. Pretty tricky on boards through the lily pads! Canoe next time / further up the canal. Highly highly recommend overall.

Camping with friends
Me and three friends had a 3 night stay at the camp at the end of june. We have camped all over UK in the last 15 years and this is as good as any of them. Very clean toilets and showers.Lots to visit around the area as well. We hired a boat on the broads and went to Cromer.

This is a lovely setting for a campsite. It's easy for children to meet and play and the facilities are kept really clean, and there are enough of them. Being next to the canal is also a treat. It's not crowded and the atmosphere is relaxed. The children enjoyed visiting the horses in the adjacent field. Sadly the showers are a let down as the hot water is very unreliable - we stayed for three nights and were never able to have a hot shower. It puts me off from staying here again, it's not much fun trying to get children to take a luke-warm shower on a luke-warm day. I would also recommend not buying firewood from here - it just doesn't burn well. There's a garden centre 5 mins up the road you can buy good kindling and kiln-dried logs from which burns much better.

Canal Camping rocks!
The site location was remote but easy to find, and only a half hour drive to the coast. The site was huge, with large mown pitches with room for a large tent and car were spaced a good 20+m apart. The ground was good quality grass, totally flat and peg friendly. Each pitch had a large fire bowl with a grill plate. Fire lighters are free, bags of wood are available to buy. The central facilities were excellent, well built quality flushing WC’s, hot showers and large washing up sinks. Everything was spotlessly clean and in perfect working order. The site was well managed, and the no noise after 10pm was respected. I really enjoyed my weekend at Canal Camping and would not hesitate to use it again.

Not good for a peaceful pitch.
Camping here was definitely a game of two halves. The first half being delightful. Plenty of room between pitching areas, great fire pit (but definitely not ideal to cook on, so do bring your own is my advice, especially for that all important morning brew), good facilities and super tranquil. However later in our stay we had one very large group of teenagers pitch up - the campsite became a bit of a football pitch/games area by us, and the drinking, dancing and partying went around the clock burning as many sacks of logs throughout the night and day as they could carry… The tranquility we’d originally enjoyed was gone. A shame really as it ruined our experience and we packed up and left a day early as a result. We booked thinking this would be a relatively quiet campsite as they advertise no noise after 10pm, but with large and young groups permitted that’s not really the reality. A big spacious site that I appreciate appeals to those who fancy a mini festival type experience with your friends but not for us I’m afraid. Would be better if the campsite had been more transparent as I would’ve merrily booked somewhere else more peaceful.

Canal Camping is a lovely, small campsite. It is in a quiet location, has a low key vibe, and is kept clean and tidy. There is a road right next to it but there is very little traffic so it wasn't a problem. However, the best thing about the site is the canal and the option to hire a canoe and go exploring. The first bit of canal is narrow, a little overgrown and mostly disused. This made it feel like a mini adventure! We then canoed up to the pub for lunch, went down another stream and then came back. So relaxing!

What an amazing site! The toilets, showers and outdoor washing up facilities were spotlessly clean. The freedom to pick your spot and move the fire pit near to you. The smell of woodsmoke from the fire pits around the site and cooking over a wood fire. If you want to relax in peace and quiet and experience a slower pace of life I can absolutely recommend this site. Canal Camping Dilham - you are do a fantastic job, please don’t change anything! I will be back next year you can count on it!! 😁👍👍

I can honestly say this is probably the best campsite I've been to. The campsite itself is very clean with good facilities. It was so peaceful and had a very relaxed vibe. The main reason we booked was for a weekend of kayaking the broads. It was lovely to have access to the canal straight from the campsite. Just be aware that the first part of the canal is quite overgrown but we had fun making our way through it anyway. I'll definitely be booking again next summer!
