Lee Valley Almost Wild Campsite, Broxbourne

Coronavirus COVID-19 update

Updated 24 March 2020

Following Government guidance on Coronavirus COVID-19 we have temporarily closed many of our venues (find out more here). We’re monitoring the situation closely and look forward to welcoming you back as soon as it’s safe to do so.

While our venues are closed, you may want to visit Lee Valley Regional Park’s open spaces. If you do, you must follow the latest Government advice on social distancing. While the park is a great place to walk, run or cycle, to enjoy nature and recharge, you must be responsible: do not meet up with friends, only visit with people you live with and only come once a day. 
Being outside is good for you, but social distancing is essential for everyone’s health. If an area looks busy, go somewhere else.

Keep safe and stay well.

Lee Valley Almost Wild Campsite, Broxbourne gives you the ultimate camping experience

Lee Valley Almost Wild Campsite on the borders of Hertfordshire and Essex is your chance for a wilderness adventure with an all new wild camping, back to nature experience.

Embrace Mother Nature in this rugged, natural setting nestled among mature woodland and a grassy glade surrounded by water on three sides. With limited facilities and none of the trappings of more commercial campsites, you’ll be able to camp out under the stars, hang a hammock from the trees and enjoy an open fire in a fire pit.

What we mean by almost wild camping...
  • Solar powered, motion sensor lights around the toilets limit light pollution
  • Composting toilets
  • Cold water tap

Don't just take our word for it

I'm awaiting my second stay this season, which may not be my last! This place is great as it is so accessible and (within reason) very lacking in restrictions, which enables the closest you are going to get to wild camping without actually wild camping. Generally the restrictions mirror those any decent wild camper would follow anyway in terms of respecting nature etc. One of the best parts about this place is that each of the woodland pitches are really pretty secluded, so you shouldn't ever have any noise issues as the wind through the trees/other foliage cancels out the noise of other campers from further away. Not too sure about the river pitches as not used them, however they are separated by hedges/shrubs too so I'd imagine they would be pretty quiet. The final point I would make is that the pitches are all very good sizes, and the descriptions on the website suggest they are a lot smaller than in the flesh, which is a brilliant surprise.

Fantastic place - First time here I was very impressed. The pitches were big and private which made a difference as we love feeing like your there on your own. Defo booking again and again. I want to book a week next time if they allow. Views are lovely and nature surrounding you. We had a wild rabbit that didn’t mind us there. The park ranger was very nice and helpful and the camp site it self has all you need for a great wild experience.

Highly recommend this campsite, especially if coming from London. I cycled out here with camping stuff in my bike saddle bags. Stayed for the one night over the weekend and really enjoyed it. A proper break from the city rush but within very east reach. We will return!
