Fishery Creek Touring Park is a beautiful waterside caravan park located on Hayling Island.
Its idyllic location on the tidal creek of Chichester Harbour - with views over the area of outstanding natural beauty - is ideal for anyone seeking a seaside campsite on England's South Coast.
From the park you can access plenty of easy walks, as well as Hayling Island's Blue Flag Award-winning beach, itself just a short stroll away. The local shops and restaurants offer all you could need on your break, and are just a five-minute walk away. Or, hop in the car to explore Portsmouth, as well as Chichester, the South Downs and New Forest National Park - all just a short drive away.
If you'd prefer to stay put, the onsite Galleon Bistro offers great food and a friendly reception. The park also has a slipway, granting access to the harbour from which guests can launch small crafts.
The park is a truly waterside destination, with a creek running along the top, a lake to one side, and of course the tidal creek (which many pitches overlook). Prime pitches that enjoy a water frontage can be booked specially on request. All pitches are on well-drained grass, with some shingle areas for awnings or motorhomes. All are well spaced, with posts and rope fencing to ensure everyone can benefit from the space. There are access roads (of tarmac or bark) leading to all pitches, as well as the slipway.
Fishery Creek Touring Park's unique location on the tidal creek means it has beautiful wildlife to enjoy. In fact, the park has been awarded a Gold David Bellamy Award, and the team is keen to not only preserve the local area's rich biodiversity but encourage it to flourish. Just two ways of achieving this are through the Butterfly Bar and Wildlife Verge.
The Butterfly Bar comprises flower beds with high-scented shrubs and flowering plants to support butterflies and other insects. They also have 'insect bricks' nearby, to encourage visiting creatures to build nests.
The Wildlife Verge, meanwhile, is an area of grass that runs the full length of the tidal creek, and has been left to grow naturally. As such, a host of wild flowers now provide a much-needed 'wildlife highway' for all insects to move through.
