Wild camping in Poole Harbour and jurassic coast

So I'm planning a few weekend excursion next year with the family and like to do some wild camping setting of from Christchurch. Any suggestions on places we could pitch a tipi for the night without getting moved on? Cheers joe

There are a number of coves and beaches we've used along the coast from Lulworth to Weymouth. Many are only accessible from the sea so having a bbq, tent and a light aren't an issue - or so we found.

I can't remember the rules around Kimmeridge, I know we've camped there but it's managede rather than just owned - and it's been a while. Hobarrow bay has been used and Ringstead and Osmington have too - just watch the tides

There is a camp site right on the water edge here but not entirely sure what it's called. It's not redcliff farm

Luke - I think that's a site for scouts - not the public but I'm not certain.

Wild camping is tricky in Poole. Most of the coast line of the harbour is either privately managed or owned. We have poached a few times just for one night at Arne, several kayaks come over from Lake road slip and spend a night here quietly but I thinks it's not really allowed as its RSPB managed here. The camp site at Redcliff is ok.

As for camping next to the beach Alderney is hard to beat, nestled behind a large earth bund to protect it from the wind and a safe harbour to moor up in its a great destination if you feel like an adventure.Click image for larger version

I've camped many times along studland beach. South beach is really well sheltered, shallow and clear water! No one has ever bothered me there. Loads of people do it in the summer. Only thing is only have fires or bbqs in the designated areas

In the summer the Trust have a quad patrol in the evenings to ask campers to move on. They are always worried about fires, naturally.
