Forest Camping - The Idyllic Setting
<b>Forest Photo:</b><br>The UFO has landed! Take the 3 mile UFO trail and discover the new landing site sculpture! Forest Camping, Tangham Campsite is a family run campsite welcoming tents, caravans, motor homes and campervans. The site is a level, well drained, 2.8 hectare (7 acre) field set in the heart of Forestry Commission Forest. The forest is a great place for you to enjoy wildlife and nature. At any time you may see deer, squirrels, rabbits and birds, and hear the Nightingale song around May time.

With plenty of fresh air and open space you can enjoy walking and cycling on our doorstep with six way marked trails ranging from 0.75 miles to 11 miles. The most popular trail is the 3 mile way marked circular walk through the forest to the famous 1980s UFO site, starting at Rendlesham Forest Centre car park.

Remember to bring your bicycle (or hire one from the Forest Centre) to explore the wider forest, Suffolk Coastal Cycle route and more. Cycle and footpath maps are sold in our shop. Our shop stocks chilled drinks, ice cream and basic essentials.

We have a small children´s play area on site or for the older children there is a larger adventure play park only a short walk away at the Rendlesham forest centre. Also a short ride from the Forest Centre there is a BMX track for the experienced rider. The forest is a great place for children and families to explore freely for hours or build dens or learn to cycle.

This year, BBC Suffolk and The East Anglian Daily Times compiled a list of 50 Things to do in Suffolk

So why don’t you come along, relax, and find out why we have hundreds of returning families each year!
