Heligan Caravan & Camping Park is just off the B3273 having turned off the A390 at St Austell. The campsite has about 50 pitches suitable for caravans or motorhomes, including a few with hardstanding and another 30 or so pitches for tents. A tree-lined avenue leads into the campsite and there's a recently updated reception building with a shop, located to the right of the entrance.
It has an open parkland feel about the main area with a number of more secluded pitches on the perimeter.
The pitches are clustered together in small groupings that are ideal for convivial groups of families and friends, with the arrangement designed to give good views over the surrounding rolling countryside.
The heated amenity block offers individual showers and toilets as well as a wet room
A few steps through a side gate leads directly to the entrance of the Lost Gardens of Heligan and whether you are a keen gardener or not this is a visit not to be missed. We absolutely guarantee that your camera will not stop clicking from the moment you begin your tour. It also has an excellent restaurant which you can you use without the need to pay for entry into the gardens.
With the Eden Project only 30 minutes’ drive away and Mevagissey, Charlestown and good beaches almost next door Heligan Woods makes an excellent base for this part of Cornwall.

Very very friendly staff. Relaxed vibe. Clean showers&toilets. Somewhat outdated, but who cares if its clean? The shop on site is small but the shop at heligan is great! Only a short walk away...
It's our second visit to this camp site. The reasons we've came back are mainly the views, then the amenities (clean, tidy and great) and then the location. The site have lovely access to nearby...
We stayed in our motorhome for 2 nights on this lovely, well kept site with pretty flower tubs dotted around. The wardens were friendly and very helpful, giving out info on walks and buses, nothing...
