Isle of Wight Mooring

I am thinking of a camping trip to the Isle of Wight at the end of July but leaving the RIB at anchor may not be the best idea! Can anyone recommend somewhere to moore up? Camping not yet booked so will consider anything or a marina if costs allow!
Thanks

How about camping in the New Forest and berthing in Lymington, you could launch at the slip and take the trailer back to the camp site. If you contact Lymington Harbour office they have 6 berths and you get discount if you book for a week, think it's about 80. You need to avoid Cowes from the 3rd August as Cowes Week starts.

Kept mine in Bembridge for a week years ago, which worked out well with Priory Bay round the corner. Can get a bit interesting at low water getting in & out though!

Depending on how long you are going we camped last year at the back of the Folly Inn up the Medina. They have an out building with showers, toilets etc.

Its not a campsite perse more a bit of grass next to their car park.

You can then moor up on their pontoon. Great fried breakfasts in the morning

It's just been dredged again, you can sneak in at low water springs and the visitor moorings don't dry out

There is close by camping a short walk from the visitor's pontoon next to priory bay. You should book a mooring in advance with the harbour office.

Plenty of local restaurants etc and the Brading haven yacht club will welcome you as a visitor
