Whitemead Forest Park, Campsite and Park Review

Whitemead Forest Park is a camping and caravan park situated in Parkend in the beautiful Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire.

We spent two nights here at the beginning of November 2020. In our review of Whitemead Forest Park, we show you the pitches, facilities and the variety of self-catering accommodation that is offer. You can then decide if this park is worth a visit from you!

Camping for motorhomes, caravans and tents are set out in three areas, the Dell, the Meadow and the Mead with over 100 pitches in total and three different types to choose from, reinforced, gravel and grass, all pitches come with electric hook up.

All pitches are spacious and no matter where you are on the site you will have an excellent view of green fields and woodlands. The park is open throughout the year and prices vary, however for our pitch mid week in November we paid £11.50 per night which was superb!

As with all good sites Whitemead has a shop, heated shower blocks, washing up rooms, laundry facilities, fresh water and chemical waste disposal points, but it’s the extras that sets it apart from other sites.

If getting some fresh air is your thing there is direct access to woodland walks and cycle paths, children’s play areas, there is even a giant outdoor chess board. But if indoor activities are more up your street you are in for a treat, from the indoor swimming pool and spa to the well equipped gym. 

They even have a large club house that offers live entertainment including live sport and a pretty comprehensive food menu that offers breakfast, lunch and evening meals.

Don’t worry if you’re not into camping but want to utilise the site, as Whitemead also offer a comprehensive range of alternative self catering accommodation, from Glamping huts, to luxury self catering apartments, they even have fully equipped log cabins giving you a proper back to nature feel.

The location of this park is superb with the village of Parkend, just a ten minute walk away and although it’s not packed with amenities it does have two pubs and a small shop and the Dean Forest Railway. The park is also within driving distance of many of the attractions of the Forest of Dean and more information can be found on the Visit Dean Wye Website and our Gloucestershire Playlist on You Tube.

We had a fabulous stay here and know we will be back. We also filmed a three part vlog series to accompany this review – see videos below. Do have a watch to see what we got up, and we also give you a complete tour of the park, showing you all the available self catering accommodation available too.
