Book a forest campsite in or near the woods

If you're looking to get away from it all and experience some true peace and quiet, then a camping trip in a forest is the perfect option for you. First of all, you'll need to decide which kind of forest you want to stay in - there are coniferous forests and deciduous forests, each with their own unique charm. If you choose coniferous, you'll go to sleep after a long day hiking with the scent of pine and Douglas fir in your tent. Browse these campsites near a forest if you love long forest walks, mountain biking, birdwatching, or foraging. We've got plenty of different campsite styles in many different countries on Campspace, so if you want to browse more nature campsites around beaches, mountains and nature reserves, you'll surely find what you need!

Outdoor activities and forest bathing while camping in the woods

Spending time in a forest is believed to have benefits for both mental and physical health. Studies have shown that both exercising in forests and simply sitting looking at the trees reduces stress-related hormones and blood pressure. In general, nature can have astoundingly positive effects on one's mental health, by facilitating creativity,  joy and calmness.
