Welcome to Chigwell Row Campsite

Chigwell Row Campsite is situated in the village of Chigwell Row, close to the A12 and on the border of Hainault Forest and Country Park. It is ideally situated for trips to central London, as well as days out in Essex.

The site occupies an area of 56 acres of grassland, providing a safe and spacious place for on-site activities.

All of our campsites can be equipped or unequipped, and have solid shelter and flush toilets. There is a central shower block, payphone, fridge/freezer room and mobile phone charging points. We also have a shop selling sweets & souvenirs, a chapel, campfire circles, backwoods fire lighting areas, a wet-weather shelter, a Training Room and games field space available to all campsite visitors.

The site has a resident, full-time warden and is open all year round. It is suitable for any member of the Guide or Scout associations as well as other youth organisations and school groups.

The many on-site activities make the site a suitable base for weekend or week stays, as well as day and evening visits.

We also have sites suitable for Duke of Edinburgh’s award, Patrol Camp permits, etc. Please ask for details.

Instruction can be provided for various activities, please ask the warden for details.
