‘Parkwood’ is the official campsite for Brighton and Hove District Scouts.
Situated within the South Downs National Park, our lovely site nestles at the foot of the South Downs close to Devil’s Dyke and the South Downs Way, and within easy reach of the vibrant seaside City of Brighton and Hove, and a number of attractive Sussex villages.
Within 23 acres of ancient woodland there are 19 secluded camping areas, each named after a part of Brighton or the surrounding settlements (see our Site Map). We can accommodate groups of various sizes, from teams of four doing their D of E (Duke of Edinburgh) training, to District Events of 300 plus. The site is totally self-contained, the only access being via the gate on the A281.
We also have indoor accommodation offering beds and bunks for up to 38 people, a well-equipped Kitchen and Dining Room, and a large hall (the ‘Tidy Cabin’) for meetings and activities. There are also separate male and female toilets, and shower facilities. This is ideal for Cub and Beaver Sleepovers, Training courses, School Trips, etc

1 Review on “Brighton Parkwood Scout Camp”
I spent lots of my youth at park wood as a scout.
they have the assault course and the caving complex which are both great fun and a good challenge,
I remember when the caving complex first ever opened up and had the privilege of being one of the first scouts to try out the caves.
Its got a large selection of woods with a main large field and also a decent size field towards the back of the camp tucked away in the trees.
Park wood felt like my second home and its a very safe secure campsite with easy hiking tracks all around.
Just remember don’t go over the fences into the farmers land.
