About the park

Alton Water is the largest water park in Suffolk with over 400 acres of beautiful countryside. With miles of tracks and trails, you can spend hours cycling or walking around the water.

Our campsite sits within the boundaries of the park, a stone’s throw away from our recently refurbished tea room. Also a very short walk away is the Watersports Centre and Cycle Hire.

The site is a level, grassy area with 80 pitches served by electric hook-ups (fee applies) and three furnished bell tents available to hire. The toilet/shower block has a male and a female section, with 5 showers per section. Additionally, there is a covered area for dish washing and a waste facility at the rear.

Our tea rooms serve hot & cold refreshments, snacks and meals throughout the day if you fancy a break from the camping stove! A large patio area lets you sit and enjoy the Suffolk sunshine. Within easy reach (and sight) of the campsite and tea room is the children’s play area and sandpit, so the little ones can burn off some of their energy while you relax!
