Camping at Hoe Mill Lock

Hoe Mill Lock Camping & Caravan Site overlooks the glorious Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation in a quiet rural area in the South East of England, with plenty of good footpaths to explore the countryside.

About the area

The village of Woodham Walter is just under one mile to the south and has three pubs and a church.  The small village of Ulting, to the north, has a picturesque church beside the Navigation.

The Navigation here is very popular amongst canoeists and paddleboarders.

Book your pitch

The site is a Camping and Caravanning Club Certificated Site, and you can bring your caravan, motorhome, trailer-tent, or tents. Membership of the Club is required, but you can join at the site on arrival.

The site is open between Easter and November. Find out more about the campsite.

About the site


There is a small toilet block with a wash basin and drinking water, but no showers.  Electric hook-up is available for each pitch, and the cost of use is included in the pitch fee. 


Pitch Charges: £19 per pitch per night


Caravan Access

If you are approaching Hoe Mill Campsite from the south, you will cross the Navigation over a bridge which has a three tonne weight restriction and 2 metre width restriction enforced by concrete barriers.  We recommend, therefore, that you always approach from the North via Ulting and Hatfield Peverel.  The turning into the gated drive for Hoe Mill Campsite is immediately before the traffic lights controlling access to the bridge, so you may wish to ring ahead from Hatfield Peverel to ensure the gate is open for you ready, otherwise you could block the road to oncoming traffic, while you wait for the gate to be unlocked.
