The Nearly Wild Camping Club is a growing network of locations willing to host campers (Tents, Hammocks, Campervans) who are looking for a wilder, secluded and quieter camping experience.


The Nearly Wild Camping Club


The Nearly Wild Camping Club is a non-profit co-operative of like-minded people – bringing together ambassadors for the countryside, its rich heritage and wildlife, with those seeking to explore and learn through informal fun. We have been featured on the BBC website, in the Guardian and Countryfile magazine.

Members access our online directory which currently has around 300 locations (100 open all year round) mostly across the UK – many exclusive to Nearly Wild Camping Club members. Most offer more than just camping
– open fires, local produce, pottery, nature walks,
fishing, woodland camping….and more!

Whether you are a camper or a potential location (or both) membership of the Nearly Wild Camping Cub is just £24 per year for a family subscription – less than 50p per week! Most of our Business partners offer member discounts on equipment and accessories.

Our NEW ‘members-only’ Community section of the website adds more value with a number of themed camps taking place each year.

All our members are also shareholders of the co-operative
with a say in how the Nearly Wild Camping Club develops,
the members own and run the organisation.
