 This was our second time at the site. Same field as before, Field B I think. Had electric hook up this time not a lot more expensive so well worth having. A bit busier than last time but then the weather was better. Still no queues for showers or washing up & still clean.

Some of the younger children on site were a bit noisy, but you can't blame the site for that. It doesn't have a club, but we didn't want a site with a club. If you want that then look at another site. Generally a good value family camp site with good facilities. We'll be going back soon & would recommend it to others.

 We are regular visitors to Dorset and have used the shop on many occasions,but this was our first stay. Afraid we had previously been a little snobbish about it,as we usually choose smaller sites without statics and play areas etc. But, have to say we were very impressed with it's facilities, tidiness and cleanliness.

We stayed on Field B which is close to the road, but the noise wasn't too bad - and I'm a very light sleeper. Units were perhaps too close together from a safety angle, but all our neighbours were friendly considerate campers. Our offspring are now adults but this site would have been absolutely perfect for them when younger.

Thankfully there is no club on site, but there's a great pub within walking distance. Although expensive- £27 per night for grass pitch plus electrics - we would definitely stay here again.

Nearby Wareham has everything necessary in the way of shops and Swanage, Studland, Monkey World, Corfe Castle etc are all easy to reach.

 Hi, just come back from a weeks holiday at this site. We came across it by accident after being disappointed with the site we had booked, and were glad we did! The pitches were lovely and flat, well marked out and well priced. Only £13 for 4 adults per night last week! Toilets were lovely and clean, and showers hot and powerful. The shop was very well stocked. The surrounding area was lovely, the only bad point was the wind. B field was a bit exposed in the centre, and after a windy night we moved to the top left corner. Caravanners told us the wind is very strong coming from the road side, so they always pitch their awnings facing the other way. Overall, a great site!

 Lookout park is a lovely site,nice and quiet just what we wanted,the caravan was lovely and clean and what was expected for a new caravan.

Site was clean and tidy with a well stocked shop,there was an entertainment centre for the children(we have no children so we didnot use it).

Park is walking distance to the small village of Wareham which have all the aminities that you need(chemists,chipshops,mini supermarket ect).

Wareham is close to many attractions(Weymouth,Dorchester,Bornmouth,Air museum ect).

Reviewer: Pb5691 6 reviews from this member

 I didn't read the other reviews until after my visit to the site - just as well as I may not have stayed there if I had. The truth is this site is well worth looking at. For those of you with a short memory the summer of 2007 was awful. Everywhere was flooded. We booked up the day before our holiday started. We spent 7 nights on the site with our†2 children (aged†8†& 12)†& loved†it,†we would definitely stay†again.

Good†Points -†site is†reasonably flat†& generally†quite†well drained. There were†a†few†puddles†on the day it rained all†day but generally†the site†seemed†quite good considering the torrential rain†leading up to†our stay.†We didn't have†an electrical†hook up,†but there†were†plenty of these available.

For a family site this was reasonably quiet. I've seen much noisier ones.

The toilets on field B were always clean, never crowded† the showers were hot, powerful & spacious. We didn't use the other shower / toilet blocks on the site, but would assume they are similar.

The washing up facilities were plentiful with lots of hot water, washing pace & drying space. Again these were never over crowded.

The kids loved the separate play area.

The lack of dogs on site made sure the place was clean.

Cold water points, chemical disposal points & bins were plentiful†& the bins†regularly emptied.

There is a games room which appeared to be full of machines to keep the kids quiet, but ours didn't use this.

The laundry was clean, with several washers & driers so you never had to wait long. Prices were reasonable too.

We paid £ 18.50 per night in August & feel this was very good value. Electric hook up was an extra £ 4.00 per night I think.

The shop was well stocked - better than most camp site shops.

Bad Points -†yes there†is†a fair degree of†road†noise. We were†pitched†very†near the main road, but to be honest you†soon got used to†it†&†it certainly†didn't ruin our holiday.†It didn't keep you up at night unless you are an exceptionlly light sleeper. My snoring†was probably†louder than the road†noise!†††

Apart from that I didn't find the shop staff over helpful although you could buy almost anything there. Not a major issue.

The main thing was the weather - but nobody can control that.

Overall an excellent†family site.†

I'd give the place 9 out of 10 (I never give 10)†

 Good Points - Weather was lovely, showers were powerful and hot, pitch was flat and well sized, plenty of water taps around.

Bad Points - The tourers are put on Field B which is near to the main road, and the noise of the traffic is constant especially through the night.

Would I stay here again - No not really unless it was for only a couple of nights and there was no other site in the area available.

 Good points: Centrally heated toilet blocks with powerful showers and good facilties. Good 'community shop' at site entrance.

Bad Points: Noise - significant from the road that runs adjacent. Even more noise from the incumbent residents whose Caravans appeared not have turned a wheel for a very long time. I'll echo the previous post as to the ' what are you doing here?' Village of the Damned' springs to mind.

 Site is on the south side of Wareham, slightly sloping touring fields. Site has a lot of statics + speed bumps to negotiate before the touring fields are accessed. Touring fields seem to be predominantly seasonal pitches, which to me lends itself to "what are you doing here attitudes...?
The field we were in backed onto a main road, screened by trees, nevertheless still noisy.
Water taps in abundance, 2 shower blocks in good nick, shop at the entrance. Ok for a tenner a night low season, not so £20 peak season..

We had a great time on are hoilday in dorset, we stayed at the look out hoilday park for three nights.
Set in a prime spot with lots to do for all age groups. Nice friendly pub only a short walk away that is reasonably priced. Mostly caravans but still quite a few tents . Only thing we were not that keen on is that you were pitched quite close together. But apart from that lovely big park for kids.  

Reviewer: Fiona

 Easter 2000
Booked 5 days but only stayed 2. Weather terrible, pitch was flooded when we got there, so they moved a caravan and put me on the dry bit. Nothing much to write about for this site, but the staff were helpful and refunded me for the other nights. Had to go home early due to storms.
