- In a countryside setting but only two miles from Skegness
- Fishing on site: land catches of up to 26lb
- Free hot showers in a modern amenities block
Fishing on a large lake in the lovely Lincolnshire countryside and only five minutes' drive to Skegness: how super.
Fishing for whoppers too, as anglers have landed specimens of up to 26lbs at Birchwood Fishing and Camping two miles from Skeggy, so bring your fishing tackle, buy a day ticket from the team and settle down to see what can be landed among the common carp, koi carp, ghost carp, mirror carp, crucian carp, rudd, roach, tench and bream.
Walks are quite super around these surrounds too… and some are accessible straight from the site entrance and through the surrounding fields to Skegness or Winthorpe and wherever else your feet fancy, perhaps after sinking a pint at the latter's Batemans brewery?
Birchwood is mainly grass and has a modern loo and shower block with disabled facilities, free hot showers and a washing-up area at its end. Mains sockets for hairdryers and the like are also available in both the ladies' and the gents' loos.
Dogs are welcome on site, but must be kept on a lead at all times and cleaned up after.

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.

When driving towards Skegness on A158 you will see a turn off on your left signposted Winthorpe/Addlethorpe (Middlemarsh Road) take this turning. Take the third turning on your left then the first left onto Mill Lane. Birchwood is then the first entrance on your right.
Alternatively drive past Southview Leisure Park on the A158 then take your next left. There is a mini roundabout in approximately 50 yards. Turn left at the roundabout onto Beacon Way drive until you see the right turn signposted Winthorpe, then take your first left onto Mill Lane. Birchwood is the first property on your right.
When arriving from the A52: just as you approach the outskirts of Skegness you will see B&Q and Pizza Hut on your right, you then need to take the next left onto Queens Road. Drive to the end of Queens Road and turn left at the junction onto Lincoln Road. Drive to the end of Lincoln Road and at the junction there are traffic lights, you need to be in the right-hand lane as you are driving straight across the traffic lights onto Burgh Old Road. Drive for approximately 50 yards and there is a mini roundabout, turn left at the roundabout onto Beacon Way. Drive along Beacon Way until you see the right turn signposted Winthorpe: turn right then first left onto Mill Lane. Birchwood is the first property on your right.
Lincolnshire's seaside capital Skegness is two miles from Birchwood Fishing and Camping, as is Fantasy Island and the indoor market land of Ingoldmells, another popular destination on the Lincs coast.
Skeggy has quite a bit to see after its beach and pier-less amusements, such as Natureland Seal Sanctuary on North Parade, where visitors can see the seals being fed and have a look at loads of other animals like penguins, tarantulas and tropical butterflies. (If it's animals, conservation and nature you're after, see also the Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve, the nearby Northcote Heavy Horse Centre and the National Parrot Sanctuary.)
Just up the coast at Ingoldmells, take the kids to the indoor and outdoor big and small rides of Fantasy Island (this should work as a nice bribe to get them to accompany you to the huge market afterwards) and then a short journey further north to more seaside at Mablethorpe and Sutton-on-Sea.
Finally, if you care for a spot of fruit picking, nearby Willow Farm lets you pluck your own among its ten-acre field and has a farm shop selling more goodies for you to take back to base.
