The Corf Campsite is located near Shalfleet, Isle of Wight, PO30 4NT, National Grid Ref. SZ417900. Shalfleet is on the Southern Vectis number 7 bus route between Newport and Yarmouth.
The campsite is accessed via a ¼ mile-long track off Corf Road and occupies land adjoining the Newtown River; it also is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). The Island Scouts have owned and operated the Corf Campsite since 1937.
Not all the buildings are available all year only the Mattinson Centre. Other buildings in the main area are available from 1st April (Or Easter whichever comes First) until 30th November each year. The campsite consists of a central group of buildings (instructional and meeting rooms, toilets, showers, dormitories/kitchen/dining room, tuck shop, stores, etc.) surrounded by some 35 camping areas which are separated by bushes and hedging, a land area totaling some 8.9 hectares (22 acres).
The utility services provided at the campsite are electricity, water, sewage (on-site treatment), and internet (via Wi-Fi).
The northern boundary of the campsite is a shoreline with the Newtown River, this allows many water activities to be undertaken from the campsite.
The campsite is open for camping from 1st April (or Easter) to 31st October and closes to camping in the winter in order to comply with the requirements of the SSSI. However, the buildings in the central area are available for use all the year-round.
