Moreton C&CC Site, Dorchester, DT2 8BB, Tel 0130523101

To Find Site:- From Dorchester leave A35 onto A352. At roundabout take B3390 towards Crossways. Go through village and site is immediately past level crossing on the right next to the pub.

The Moreton C&CC site is situated in the countryside about seven miles from Dorchester. It is open from late March to early November and accepts non-members. There are 120 pitches, some are on hardstandings and the majority on grass. Like all C&CC sites you can determine the type of pitch when booking. Those pitches which are designated electric pitches have conveniently placed points which are rated at 16 amps and use CEE17 blue connectors. Water and waste water disposal points are at either of the two toilet blocks and same is the case for chemical disposal. The actual toilet blocks are clean and functional rather than being luxurious. Both  have covered, but not fully enclosed, washing up areas. There are also laundry facilities but these are at the back of Reception. For children there is a nice adventure style playground. There is site wide WiFi but the reliability of the service varied a lot. Unfortunately on some networks the mobile signal is also poor. Reception sells a few essentials and next door is a comprehensive information room. A railway line runs along one side of the site. Whilst the trains are not particularly noisy some do sound their horn as they approach the level crossing, fortunately this does not happen overnight.

This site is very convenient for touring this part of Dorset with Dorchester only being a few miles away and Weymouth and Swanage just a little further on. For those not wanting to use their own transport Moreton Station is a short distance from the campsite with regular trains to Dorchester and Weymouth in one direction and Bournemouth and Southampton in the other. For food shopping there is a general store in Crossways a short distance from the site.  Major supermarkets are situated in all the major towns locally.
