Camping & Glamping in Kent

Sleep under the stars...

Kent is a popular destination for campers, with a variety of camping sites and caravan parks to choose from around the county and the coast. Whether you’re looking for a luxury campsite with all the comforts of home or prefer something more adventurous, you're sure to find it here.

Each of these Kent campsites comes with a unique twist on the basic campsite...be it beautiful surroundings, tailored facilities or landscaped gardens.

The Camping and Caravanning Club

With three beautiful sites located across Kent, The Camping and Caravanning Club is the perfect place to start planning your next camping break. Here you'll find the coastal Folkestone Club site, perfect for beach-side adventures, the Canterbury Club site, located just one mile away from the historic city, and the Oldbury Hill Club Site, a peaceful site resting in the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Situated in 28 acres of landscaped gardens featuring ornamental fruit and woodland trees, this campsite offers complete and utter tranquillity and has even been awarded the David Bellamy Conservation Gold Award.

Budget Camping
If you’re a seasoned camper simply looking for a place to pitch your tent and reconnect with nature, then look no further. St Nicholas Camping Site doesn't require all the embellishments of modern 'glamping' to offer a peaceful, rejuventating experience. Set in a pleasantly quiet village location, it's a simple hedged and level site that offers all the basic camping necessities such as flushing toilets, showers, electric points and bottled gas for caravans. Camping on a budget is made incredibly easy in Kent.


Kent is the ultimate destination to enjoy luxury camping. With its unspoilt countryside, amazing coast and special landscapes from the cliffs to the downs, Kent offers some of the best glamping sites and unique experiences in the UK.
