Camping on the IOW with boat...

Iím coming to the IoW at the end of July with three friends for four days. We plan to launch the boat around Portsmouth somewhere and then cruise across, leave the boat in a harbour and camp on a nearby campsite.
I was wondering if anyone could recommend a campsite near a harbour/marina preferably near the North of the Island (so we donít have to travel too far in the boat). I found a place called ďWhite cliff bayĒ holiday park, near Bembridge. Does anyone know how far this is from Bembridge harbour by foot?
Also, how much can I expect to pay per day to keep the boat in a marina?

The marina up the cowes river just past the folly inn called Island Harbour has an area for camping I think,toilets,showers and shop on hand,you have to lock into the marina and I dont think its accesible all states of tide but they seem quite friendly,not sure about price though.

Hi Tim,

The nearest camp site to Bembridge Marina is Nodes Point at St Helens. About a miles walk. A good deal closer than White Cliff Bay.

http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/sites/de...asp?revid=3744

I will be on the Island from 30 July to 13 August with my rib in Bembridge. If you need any further help - just ask.

That one's not on your link, Louise.

No, I think you will find a passport is quite different.
You actually need it when you get back to the mainland.
Got to keep the Corkheads in check. (Sorry in advance to anyone who might be offended)

You live and learn.
I always thought it was cork to keep you afloat, not caulk to keep the water out.
Thanks for the info.
