- Pitch up in the heart of the Forest
Welcome to Whitemead Forest Park, the perfect UK holiday destination whether you're looking for a relaxing break or an action-packed holiday.
Our caravan and camping pitches make the most of our beautiful surroundings in the heart of the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire.
Pitch up to Whitemead Forest Park with your caravan or tent and make the most of the picturesque surroundings. At Whitemead we have over 110 pitches and all have the use of the park's excellent on-site facilities, which include:
- Free indoor heated pool with children's area
- Free sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi
- Free gym
- Free indoor and outdoor play areas, including soft play
- Games room
- Restaurant and bars
- Health and beauty salon
New to our Park for 2016 are our state-of-the-art MegaPod Glamping Pods, which sleep up to 4 people and offer a great, eco-friendly alternative to a tent whilst retaining all the ambience of a 'camping holiday'.
At Whitemead we go out of our way to make sure you have the best holiday possible. With this in mind we've put together a fantastic programme of daytime activities (school holidays only) and evening entertainment (weekends and school holidays) - there's something for all the family!

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
