Camping at Hoe Mill Lock

Hoe Mill Lock campsite 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.

Pitch up alongside the Chelmer & Blackwater Navigation

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.

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.
