John’s Lee Wood Campsite covers 33 acres of woodland within the National Forest area. We have 24 clearings in the woodland for camping pitches & these vary in size from Patrol to Group camp. The site is owned by the City of Leicester Scout Districts & is open thoughout the year except for Christmas weekend to most organisations who hold public liability insurance. The site is staffed by volunteer warden teams on an eight week rota system with a separate team of volunteers to staff the providore & another team of retired staff who work on the site in the week.   Unfortunately, we cannot allow members of the general public to use the campsite.

Please Note:

All visits to the site must be pre-booked with the Bookings Secretary. Visit our contact page to get in touch.
