General

  • Family-friendly wild camping on Bodmin Moor, with stunning lake views
  • Anglers’ paradise: private access to lake for brown trout fishing
  • Top spot for stargazing in designated Dark Sky Reserve

Need to switch off from the hectic pace of modern life? Swim on over to Colliford Lake Park Campsite, a family-friendly wild camping site on Cornwall’s rugged Bodmin Moor (15 minutes’ drive from the village of St Neot and the town of Bodmin), where everything feels a bit more slowed down.

Colliford is a prime base for relaxing getaways and explorations. The 20-acre secluded moorland site has private access to Colliford Lake, where aspiring anglers can cast a line and land a brown trout – don't worry about having your chances dashed by someone zooming by on a jetski, as watersports are banned.

Away from the lake, ramblers, bikers and horseback riders can follow the waymarked trails through the Moor, keeping eyes peeled for otters, bats, stonechat and wheatear songbirds and the rare Marsh Fritillary butterfly.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head back to the site and fire up the barbecue. If you're not grilling the day's catch, you can head to one of the supermarkets within 15 minutes of Colliford to grab supplies, or you can take a break from cooking and try one of the restaurants nearby.

Please note

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    Took a mid-week break here with 14 family members, we booked 3 pitches in total, our party included adults and children of all ages. The owners were very accommodating and arranged for us to have adjoining pitches a little away from the other campers which was great. The Campsite has the feel of being totally secluded but is in fact only minutes from the A30, the views across the Lake are amazing, everyone enjoyed themselves immensely. The showers and toilets are adequate for most campers needs and we will definitely be coming back on a regular basis.

    Called in for a short stay as a base for seeing Cornwall. It is centrally located close, but no too close, to the A30 making road trips very convenient.

    The Campsite has only just opened but offers good toilet and shower facilities in a wonderful setting. The owners are very friendly and helpful but not over-bearing.

    You feel you are in the middle of nowhere surrounded by the moors with the Lake taking centre stage. We were able to chose our own spot on the camping field and it would seem this is still a hidden gem as the campsite is very quite. I think this may change when word gets out....

    You are literally a stones throw from the edge of the lake and have direct access to the waters edge through gates linking the camping field to the lake foreshore.

    Will try to return soon for a longer stay.

    Disliked: 

    Didn't have time to stay longer and soak up the atmosphere of the moors

    Superb location, stunning views, very peaceful and private could be miles from anywhere but in reality it is a brilliant base for exploring most Cornwall. The owners Nigel and Eve are very welcoming and are more than happy to recommend the best places to go. The facilities are more than adequate and are kept very clean and tidy.

Local attractions

If Cornish history is your jam (which should always go beneath the cream on your scones, of course), you might want to start your hols at Colliford Lake Park Campsite with a trip to the famous Jamaica Inn, immortalised in Daphne du Maurier’s novel of the same name. It’s less than 10 minutes’ drive from site, and it’s got a smuggler’s museum to be explored.

Stay in the history zone with a spin to Bodmin, where you can join in a trial at the Courtroom Experience and find out what happens on the other side of the judge’s gavel at Bodmin Jail, or go further back with a stop at the Hurlers Stone Circles (believed to be a group of men who were turned to stone for playing the traditional Cornish game of hurling on the Sabbath).

If the weather isn’t working in your favour, head to Carnglaze Caverns for an underground tour of the old slate mine and a journey to its subterranean lake. Once the skies clear, bring the kids along to Hidden Valley Discovery Park, take them zipling and to the waterpark at Adrenalin Quarry, and intro them to the animals (and rides) at Camel Creek Adventure Park, all within around half an hour of Colliford.
