South coast campsite with slipway

Can anyone recommend a quality, quiet, clean, campsite, with electric hook up that will take tent and boat trailer. Must be within reach of a good solid slipway as I don't have a 4x4. Preferably near to the Hamble area but I'm not fussy providing I can get easy access to the Solent. I want to bring the family down for a couple of long weekends this summer and maybe meet some of the people I met at last years SR gathering for a run out and possibly a few beers.

A family of 2 adults & 2 children with a 4m RIB, staying in a 4-man tent would be charged £43/night during the school summer holidays

Yes, 'tis nice. The campsite has a tractor launch facility over the beach, but it gets really busy and you can end up queuing for ages to launch and you have to be back out early(ish).
