At any time of year, the low-lying county of Suffolk is the perfect destination. From the wetland Broads in the north to the beautiful wool towns of the south, the unspoilt coastline in the east, and the lush green countryside in the west, going camping in Suffolk really is the ideal choice whether you are looking for a family holiday, romantic weekend, activity break or fun days out.
Suffolk has a diverse history rich in archaeology, with castles, ancient sites and churches. One of the UK’s greatest archaeological sites at Sutton Hoo reveals the story of the Anglo Saxons that settled down to live their lives in ancient Suffolk. Today Ipswich is the county town, with other important settlements including Lowestoft, Bury St Edmunds and Felixstowe – one of the largest container ports in the whole of Europe.
The Suffolk coast and heaths are designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Dotted around this wonderful environment are unspoilt villages and market towns that make this county so wonderfully special.
All campsites in Suffolk offer plenty of activities and major attractions within easy reach. From medieval churches, nature reserves, the abbey gardens in Bury St Edmunds and the Oasis Camel Centre to name but a few, camping in Suffolk is the perfect holiday for all the family.
