http://www.essexscouts.org.uk/campsites/kingstonridge.php – Kingston Ridge camp site is an excellent woodland site with above average facilities. The volunteer crew does an excellent job staffing and maintaining the site.  Their official site is here: http://www.kingstonridgecampsite.co.uk/index2.html

http://www.essexscouts.org.uk/campsites/edwardviii_riffhams.php – Riffhams camp site is yet another local woodland site with basic facilities. It has a tree preservation order on it which can make bush craft difficult, but it is an excellent site and shouldn’t be overlooked.

http://www.belchamps.co.uk – Local International Scout camp site with full facilities.

http://www.fairmead.info/ – Fairmead Scout campsite in Loughton is right on the edge of Epping Forest. It has two large accommodation facilities, camping fields and adventure play area/assault course. Drainage can be an issue, however the accommodation has generous covered areas for outdoor activities.
