Things To Do
Hoe Mill Lock Camping & Caravan Site overlooks the glorious Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation in a quiet rural area in the South East of England, with plenty of good footpaths to explore the countryside.
The village of Woodham Walter is just under one mile to the south and has three pubs and a church. The small village of Ulting, to the north, has a picturesque church beside the Navigation.
The Navigation here is very popular amongst canoeists and paddleboarders.
The site is a Camping and Caravanning Club Certificated Site, and you can bring your caravan or motorhome. Membership of the Club is required. Unfortunately we do not have the facilities to be able to accept tents.
The site is open between Easter and October. Find out more about the campsite.

If you are approaching Hoe Mill Campsite from the south, you will cross the Navigation over a bridge which has a three tonne weight restriction and 2 metre width restriction enforced by concrete barriers. We recommend, therefore, that you always approach from the North via Ulting and Hatfield Peverel. The turning into the gated drive for Hoe Mill Campsite is immediately before the traffic lights controlling access to the bridge.
