Biblins campsite is one of the best places in Southern Britain for young people to enjoy outdoor education in spectacular scenery.

New Managment for 2018 onwards

The Forestry Commission are pleased to announce new management arrangements for the Biblins Youth Campsite.  After many years of in-house management, the site will now be managed under a long-term lease with the UK charity, Woodcraft Folk.

Woodcraft Folk are a progressive youth organisation with 90 years’ experience of supporting children and young people to camp, play and learn about the environment.

Woodcraft Folk will begin the season with a working weekend at the end of January, giving the site a makeover and developing their plans for the site. If you are interested in making a booking or volunteering to support children and young people to access the site please contact

I first visited Biblins as a 12 year old Scout and have visited many times since - most recently after a break of 20 years. It is great to see that the site has retained its unique charm and has not been overdeveloped. It is also great that the Forestry Commission have retained this a youth site - long may this continue so that future generations can enjoy this natural playground.

If you run a school or youth group and do not use this site you must be crazy. There is nowhere in the country that I know of that offers so much in terms beauty, range of activities and non-commercialism. It may not be like this for much longer so enjoy it while you can. Graeme, Sue and Steve do a great job and I hope it stays that way so I can continue to bring students to Biblins for another 15yrs.

The site was a very welcome base for our Bronze DofE group - a beautiful location, well resourced and the added bonus of no mobile reception! Thank you. This is the kind of facility must aim to protect for our youngsters to continue to experience in the future.
