Lincolnshire is ideal for camping and caravanning. It has a great coastline with traditional seaside resorts, lots of beautiful countryside, pretty market towns and plenty of fun things to do – what more could you ask for? (Apart from guaranteed good weather…)
There are many Lincolnshire campsites to choose from. Whether you’re wanting family fun at the seaside or a more relaxing holiday in the beautiful Lincolnshire countryside, there’s bound to be a campsite to suit you.
Lincolnshire has over 50 miles of coastline, with lots of long, sandy beaches. Four of these are ‘Blue Flag’ beaches; Cleethorpes, Mabelthorpe, Skegness and Sutton on Sea. (Blue Flags are awarded to beaches with high standards of cleanliness and good water quality. In 2013, the Lincolnshire coastline was awarded more Blue Flags than any other county on the east coast of England!)
There are plenty of family-friendly campsites on the Lincolnshire coast, including at Cleethorpes, Sutton on Sea, Anderby Creek, Chapel St Leonards, Ingoldmells and Skegness.
For those who don’t want the hustle and bustle of family campsites and yet still want to stay close to the sea, there are some excellent campsites to choose from. As well as traditional seaside resorts, the Lincolnshire coastline also has bird and nature sanctuaries on the banks of the Wash.
Camping and caravanning on the Lincolnshire coast offers you so much variety!

The Lincolnshire countryside has some excellent campsites and can roughly be divided into three distinct geographical areas.
The Lincolnshire Wolds, in the north east of the county, is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with gentle rolling countryside and lots of pretty villages. It has an annual walking festival running from mid May to the beginning of June – a great way to explore the beauty of the Lincolnshire Wolds. The historic market towns of Louth, Horncastle, Woodhall Spa and Market Rasen are close by.
The Lincolnshire Vales, in the south west of the county, is just as beautiful as the Lincolnshire Wolds. It also boasts rolling hills, valleys and traditional Lincolnshire Villages. It is an ideal location for cycling, walking and visiting places of interest including Stamford, Burghley House and Belton House. The Lincolnshire Vales is easily accessible from London and the south via the A1 and also from the Midlands.
The Lincolnshire Fens, in the south east of the county, stretches into Cambridgeshire and Norfolk. It has its own unique landscape with flat, wide-open countryside, criss-crossed with drainage dykes and waterways which are havens for birds and wildfowl. Camping in the unspoilt Lincolnshire Fens is a great way to escape the pressures of modern life and reconnect with nature.
Camping and caravanning in the beautiful Lincolnshire countryside is a great way to spend a holiday or a weekend break. Visit our Lincolnshire Camping Directory for information on campsites and caravan sites.
