Forest Camping, Tangham Campsite is a family run campsite, 2021 is our 40th year! With up to 90 pitches (most with electric hook-up free of charge), we welcome tents, touring caravans, motorhomes and campervans. The site is a level, well drained field surrounded by Rendlesham Forest, in the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The forest is a great place for you to enjoy miles of open forest trails, wildlife, nature and vast skies for stargazing.
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 the Forestry England Rendlesham Forest Centre only a short walk away.
Remember to bring your bicycle to explore the wider forest, Suffolk Coastal Cycle route and more (Click for Maps)
We have a small children's play area on site or for the older children there is a larger adventure play park only at the very nearby Rendlesham Forest Centre. You may even find sculptures hidden in Tangham Wood. The forest is a great place for children and families to explore freely for hours or build dens or learn to cycle.
For those looking for something else, we are surrounded by a wide range of villages, towns and activities. Sutton Hoo being the closest attraction with its new viewing tower and setting for The Dig, picturesque Woodbridge with it's famous and rare example of a Tide Mill which still produces flour today. Woodbridge also offers a range of shops and amenities alongside the River Deben. For those looking for beaches, Shingle Street in Hollesley with it's isolated location, Aldeburgh for its famous Fish and Chips and Southwold for its Pier and surfing are a few suggestions.

50 Things to do in Suffolk
It is now 2021 but it's still valid today, BBC Radio Suffolk and the East Anglian Daily Times in 2014 asked the public for their thoughts on what they love to do in our diverse county of Suffolk.
BBC Radio Suffolk presenter Mark Murphy said:
"The amazing response shows the deep love and affection people have for Suffolk. We could easily have had a top 100. What was lovely was so many Suffolk ex-pats got in touch to share their suggestions with us, as well as locals"
