Excellent Spacious Camp Site
Excellent camping, plenty of space and privacy between camping pitches. The camp owners and managers are extremely friendly and helpful. Camping facilities are super clean, well maintained and built. Only down side is the background noise of the rear carriedgeway a few miles from the campside. But I suppose that is not a super issue when you think about having no disturbances at all from camping neighbours. Camping rules are clear about music and electronic sound after 10pm. Beaches are a 10minute drive.

Ian and Sarah are the best hosts ever and the site is wonderful. The shade of the Oak trees was welcome in the heat. The site is spread out wonderfully. Head left for more shade and if you are willing to trek a little further with your baggage you can really lose yourself in the woods.

This is an excellent campsite, a large space under the trees where kids can roam in the dappled sunlight. The facilities were of a great standard, I didn't queue for a toilet or shower once and they were kept clean. I would 100% recommend this site

A simple perfect get away, family orientated but equally well suited to couples. Has enough facilities to make it comfortable but with out the bling of other campsites.

We camped here over the august bank holiday weekend & even though it was booked to capacity there was still plenty of space for everyone.
My complaint one morning about noisy neighbours after curfew(1am!!!) was taken seriously and with understanding.
Facilities were clean & showers hot. Never seen such posh compost loos.
Only thing stopping 5 stars was the constant noise from the A27 but not a lot anyone can do about that.
We stay every year and will keep going back. This camp site has a lovely atmosphere, great clean facilities, large pitches in and out of the woods. Lovely fire area in each pitch, dog friendly and most of all very helpful owners.

As non-regular camper Londoners, we absolutely loved it here! We stayed for 2 nights as a couple with our dog and had a wonderful time. Facilities are great at the site, hot showers are most appreciated. We are definitely converts now and will look to camp more to get away from the city life and have already recommended Fox Wood to our friends (who are seasoned campers!). We will definitely come back again in the future!

Our whole family loved this place!
So much room to play and large open spaces to set up camp, perfect for my son who has Aspergers (he likes open spaces) and nice to know that there’s no risk of loud neighbours as everything settles down around 10pm.
The toilets and showers were kept immaculate by the lovely owners who made us feel so very welcome.
There are woodland walks nearby but to be honest the site is so beautiful you really don’t want to leave.
Pubs nearby but we only ventured to the Fox pub which we found perfect for the kids with its play area and kids menu, little bit pricey but it was a nice treat.
All in all this was an absolutely perfect camping experience and we can’t wait to return, we’ll done Fox wood!

I’m slightly hesitant from a selfish perspective to write a review for the only reason that my review will encourage more people to visit what is the best forest campsite I have been to so far and I’d prefer to keep it a secret so it is available for me!
The facilities, location and site are awesome and we had a fantastic time there. Our son met some new friends at the rope swing and we were happy to let him play without our supervision due to the safe and secure environment we felt around us at the site.
A camp fire every night toasting marshmallows was the perfect way to relax whilst also looking up at the stars between the trees. There was plenty of space between each camp so you didn’t feel overlooked or hear other campers.
Showers, toilets and washing area were well looked after and could not wish for anything else.
Totally amazing place and we will be back!
The owners of Fox Wood really understand what camping is about. There were plenty of secluded sites to choose from all dotted around under a splendid canopy of trees and within easy walking distance of parking, loos and washing areas. While the site is not what some would consider to be wild camping (thanks to the very well maintained facilities) it was lovely not being surrounded by RVs / camper vans and noisy neighbours. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to return soon.

We go camping 2 or 3 times a year and this is one of the best campsites we've stayed at. We had so much space around us and felt really excluded in our camping spot with so much nature around us. Recommend going when it's bluebell season, the walks with a carpet of purple around us was fantastic. The facilities were great (washing, compost loos and showers). Campsite owner was super friendly and helpful. Brilliant pubs within a short walk away.

We're just back from a weekend at Fox Wood and we really loved it. The kids had an amazing time playing on the rope swing and running around with new friends and we enjoyed the woodland setting and easy proximity to Goring/Ferring and Arundel. We will definitely be back. Thank you.

Really enjoyable weekend camping with the family. The owners were lovely and friendly and the campsite is spacious and set in a beautiful forest. Toilet and shower facilities were good although only at the entrance so a bit of a walk for some campers.
A lovey campsite. The plots are between the trees so nice and private. It was not overcrowded, even on a bank holiday weekend. The children loved the rope swing. The showers were excellent. Lovely feel to the place- just the necessary services, nottoomuch - just right.
We loved Fox Wood Camping. It is in a quiet and lovely wood where camping included open fires and wonderful walks. We walked to the local pub one night for dinner and visited the gorgeous town of Arundel where you can see the castle or walk around the gardens. It’s a great getaway from London. We will be back!
A little bit of me wants to keep quiet about this site as it’s so fabulous! Everything is perfect. I love waking up under the tall oak trees to the sound of the buzzards. The pitches are well spread out and the fire pits and little seating areas a fantastic touch.There is so much space between the tents, we make a little home from home using windbreaks and fairy lights. (For true space affectionado’s the back of the site is often empty).
As soon as we arrive, our boy goes feral, running off with other kids to make dens, swing on ropes and goodness knows what else! It is kids paradise and a long way from busy roads. Because only families are welcomed, it also means that booze campers are pretty much absent and it is possible to actually get a bit of sleep!
We have been three times now and just love it. It even has the bonus of being quite close to a decent sandy beach. Its a short hop to lots of footpaths and two good pubs The showers and sinks are good and a bit of composting toilet is a small price to pay for being off grid (they are kept VERY clean - much better than the disgusting fly ridden ones I have encountered at other sites).
I have been to some great campsites in Devon and Dorset, but for me, this is the tops.
The best part is how little we had during the experience, relying on the limited toilet and washing facilities but it was still great. A great family weekend camping, well worth a visit
Just spent the weekend at this lovely campsite. The owners are wonderfully friendly and clearly work very hard to keep the campsite in such a clean and well kept condition. Lovely woodland environment with plenty of space and privacy between the pitches. The woods are lovely for the children to safely explore. We will definitely be returning and highly recommend.

We have stayed here twice this year in May and July. Ian, Sarah and their boys are wonderful hosts and very welcoming. the pitches are great, facilities clean and new and the atmosphere friendly. the car are left in the car park away from the tents but you can pass them on t he way to the toilet block so nothing is far to walk. the children love the freedom there and really enjoyed playing with the owners children. our second trip included a birthday party where we invited guests for the afternoon.it was a brilliant party venue, Ian and Sarah were very kind and made the occasion special for us. Thank you, we will be back!
We stayed at this lovely campsite over the early May bank holiday weekend. From the moment we arrived, Sarah and Ian were extremely welcoming and gave us all of the information we needed to get set-up. The pitches themselves are fantastic. Situated in clearings in the woodland, each has its own log seating around a campfire area, already set-up with kindling. It took us a few wheelbarrow trips to get all of our kit to our pitch but it was worth it for the tranquil, car-free environment we enjoyed for the rest of our stay. This campsite is most definitely off-grid (do take a torch!) but whilst the facilities are basic, the showers, loos and washing-up area were extremely clean and a pleasure to use. We had an extremely relaxing stay, enjoying the peace and quiet of the woodland setting. My wife and I and our two daughters all agreed that this was our favourite campsite to date and one we will definitely return to and recommend to friends.

Just returned from a great weekend at Fox Wood Camping. The site is spacious, with plenty of semi-private glades amid towering oak woodland. Each pitch had its own campfire area, surrounded by log stools and benches, and a (very slightly sloping) grassy area for pitching your tent. You're free to choose your pitch on arrival and the owners are extremely helpful. There's no cars allowed on site (parking is at the entrance), which is great for free-running children, but they do offer a gear delivery service in their vehicle, and log delivery too. There are immaculate compost toilets, a clean washing area (drinking water on tap), and hot showers (morning and evening only), which are large enough to take grubby kids in with you. Nearby pub is an easy 10min walk with a good kids playground and homemade food. There are plenty of forest trails on site and in the immediate surroundings. Our kids loved finding owl eggs, spotting foxes and deer in the forest, and having the freedom to run, play and ride in wheelbarrows around the site. Sarah and Ian are very friendly and seemingly on duty all day (thank you!). Brilliant place for a family escape.
