Almost Wild Campsite, Nazeing


Lee Valley Almost Wild Campsite on the borders of Essex and Hertfordshire is your chance for a wilderness adventure and an opportunity to get back to nature. The ultimate camping experience!

Embrace Mother Nature in this rugged, natural setting nestled among mature woodland and a grassy glade surrounded by water on three sides. With limited facilities and none of the trappings of more commercial campsites, you’ll be able to camp out under the stars, hang a hammock from the trees and enjoy an open fire in a fire pit.

Enjoy this hidden gem of a site with its 12 riverside and eight woodland pitches. There’s also a minimum age to stay at the campsite, 12 years old, not quite adult only but nearly.

What we mean by almost wild camping...

Make the most of your time at the site whether you choose to explore the local nature reserves and parks on foot, or hire a bike or canoe and explore from a different perspective. There’s even white water rafting a few miles away if you’d like to ramp up the adrenalin.

Have a question?

Like can I forage for food (no we’d rather you didn’t) or is there electricity on the site (no it’s a back to nature site) – then check out our frequently asked questions or contact us to know more.
