General

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

Colliford Lake Park Campsite is a tent only non-electric site, with family-friendly wild camping on Cornwall’s 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's a prime base for getaways and roaming around: the 20-acre secluded moorland site has private access to Colliford Lake, where aspiring anglers can cast a line to try and land a brown trout (fret not about having your chances dashed by someone zooming by on a jetski, as watersports are banned on the lake).

Away from the water, 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, supermarkets are within 15 minutes of Colliford, or you can take a break from cooking and try one of the restaurants nearby.

Wild campsite, simple but clean07/09/2019

Reviewer's country: United KingdomJaroslaw F.Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    A wild campsite with a nice lake view and simple but clean facilities. There is also a common room and a kitchen - might be ideal for those rare rainy days... The kitchen is well equipped. Bathrooms have 4 showers altogether (two male two female), and 4 toilets - which was more than enough when we stayed (there were only two more tents), but I'm not sure about busier periods.

    Disliked: 

    Note that the muffled noise of A30 is noticeable at the campsite.

    The open-air sink was stuck, dirty and stinky - dishwashing could have only been done in the main facilities complex. The road to the campsite was bumpy and full of holes. My car complained a lot. With a little bit more care I think this could be fixed - just a bit of gravel to feel-in the holes. The campsite might be a bit cheaper considering its wild character.

A beautiful and idyllic site ideally located for exploring Cornwall.05/09/2019

  • Liked: 

    We both really loved the natural surroundings without well manicured pitches or hook up.
    The toilet facilities though basic were fine and the showers were always lovely and hot with plenty of pressure in them and kept clean.
    The communal room was great with it's kitchen area with microwave, toaster, fridge/freezer, kettle & iron. Also great to have washer and a tumble drier for the longer breaks.
    Was a bonus to have the use of a large gas BBQ for free and the supply of fire baskets and also logs to purchase made for a cosy camping experience.
    It was great to be able to wander up to the Tavern on the next site which was open to the public with food available throughout the day and a decent choice of drinks at the well stocked bar.
    The campsite is a great central location for exploring much of surrounding area with easy access to the main roads as well as the charming country routes.

    Disliked: 

    There truly was nothing at all that we disliked during our stay.

Brill stay, would love to come back25/08/2019

  • Liked: 

    During our stay at colliford Lake we found that it was a Brill little site. Big enough if you wanted to be pitched by yourself you could, and was unable to hear anyone else but small enough if you needed the loo or shower or use any of the facilities which were all free of charge (Inc a washing machine) it was a 5 min walk at max. It truly was wild camping, the view was brilliant! We watched the farmer round up all his sheep in the next fields late morning. Was a good laugh to see. And the gentleman who welcomed us, brought wood to us. 2 bags for £2.50. And gave us a great impression! Would love to go back again!

    Disliked: 

    There were a few things that would make us loon around a bit more. One being the road into the field, it was extremely worn down, huge bumps and holes. Just needs a bit of gravel or something in the really deep holes. And I'm just being picky but the grass was very long, a bit longer then normal so shoes and trousers would be getting soggy if you didn't bring wellies.

    Now through no fault of their own pitchup. Com has the wrong timings for booking in, it is from 3pm until 7pm not 2-8 as it says on the website.

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 has a smuggler’s museum to boot.

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.

Must see

  • Tintagel Castle (12.0 miles)
  • Eden Project (14.0 miles)
