Ça vaut vraiment le détour, des vues spectaculaires et de nombreuses randonnées à faire. Restez simple et ne déballez pas, etc. . Courte distance à pied de la ville / de la plage, mais raide!
Well worth the trip, spectacular views and plenty of hikes to do. Keep it simple and don't unpack etc... Short walk to town/beach, but steep!
Die Reise lohnt sich, spektakuläre Aussichten und viele Wanderungen. Halten Sie es einfach und packen Sie nicht aus usw. ... Kurzer Weg in die Stadt / zum Strand, aber steil!
Vale la pena el viaje, vistas espectaculares y muchas caminatas para hacer. Mantenlo simple y no desempaques, etc... Un paseo corto a la ciudad/playa, ¡pero empinado!

Sadly, a new sign went up this week 6/7/22. Parking is still free during the day, but parking here is only allowed between 6am-9pm. This applies to all vehicles. NO OVERNIGHT PARKING.

Honestly my favourite stop so far since Brighton Marina. The view is spectacular, the space is plenty, the hills are steep and hard to climb but that's my vans fault not the location! make sure you explore around, the barrow, quarry and coast walks are all amazing PLUS what could be quite possibly the best fish and chip shop in the UK is down the hill with a full vegan menu, didn't want to leave!

Lovely view at night of the lights over Weymouth. Was a bit windy but weather was not great! Im sure it would be even better in Summer!

Fantastic stop over, no charges any more, totally free with great views over Weymouth. Plenty of walks with views. Tesco and Lidl a short drive away. There are actually 3 parking areas, all hard standing and flat
24 10 2021
Great spot with fantastic views. public toilet within about 200m. Level parking and the end parking area has large capacity bins. Good walks if you have a dog. Does get a little windy. No sign of any charges applying. We shared with 3 other motorhomes and a camper van. There is a petrol station with small shop about 15 minutes walk away. One of our favourites.

Lugar con vistas inmejorables, donde poder avistar un increíble atardecer. Al ser en un mirador hace mucho viento, y en ocasiones se hace muy difícil dormir. En verano un paisano pasa cuando ve apropiado a cobrarte 10£. Por lo demás un sitio muy bueno, con bastantes zonas llanas y dónde elegir.

Good location for a stopover if not much else is available . guy who collects the money is nice and help.. some good views Portland is a bit of dump though. 2 prisons most of it is an industrial estate recycling centre. soon to have an incinerator and the walks are well walking through abandoned industrial area. in summary great if you want to just park for the night.
17 08 2021
Spent our first night here and our first night ever in the van! The guy that takes the money is really friendly and helpful. I've been coming to Portland for 30 years and never get over the spectacular views from here. Was a very quiet night, about 5 or 6 other vehicles here. we would definitely stay here again, felt very safe.

Great place to stay the night. Amazing views to wake up to and not bad for a tenner!!
29 07 2021
Stunning spot to stay the night. Views are outstanding. £10 overnight charge but worth every penny. If your are looking for something around Portland, this is a must!!!
21 07 2021
This place is a must for all park4night motorhomers The view of chesil and Portland below is outstanding. The parking is level and there are 3 separate parking bays along the road. The sat nav directions take you up a narrow road. Had to turn round half way up. Bailley was grounding on tow bar. Where the sat asks you to turn left go straight on up hill. £13 for 24 hrs. Will return again.

Great location with fantastic views and security 24/7 who are very welcoming and friendly. Have stayed here several times and one of our favourite stop overs
30 06 2021
Great spot with lovely view over Chesil Beach. Friendly security guard £10 per night. We didn’t use the public toilets. The Heights Hotel is a stones throw from the car park but only open to residents at the moment. It is a VERY steep climb down to the local Indian and water front restaurants, we made it there and back but only just! Follow your Sat Nav to the Olympic Rings and it’s just passed them, our sat nav tried to take us down a tiny back road.
20 06 2021
Great place to stay. A security guy comes round to collect £10 if your staying for the night, there are toilets just down the road which is handy. Amazing sea views, we will be back.
10 06 2021
Stayed here for two nights. Great Views with the right weather and some great walks. Manned Security 24/7 £10 per night sleeping, Does have Council loos from 8am to 8pm very clean too. Day time parking is £1 per hr or £3 for the day.
28 05 2021
What a view. Opened our back campervan doors to this incredible view. Steep climb. Saw the parking attendant in the first car park on way in to pay. £10 8pm - 10am. He was lovely and led us to a great parking space. Easy to park up. Fabulous walks and views - part of the south west coast path, Fancy’s farm where we saw goats, alpacas and wallabies. Open 10:30-4:30 daily. Looks like a bit of history with HM prison the Verne which we thought was an old military building by the path down to town.
9 05 2021
Stayed here one night over the weekend. £10 for the night. Very friendly man that takes the money. Big rubbish bins and toilets just down the road. Amazing views! Worth it!
5 05 2021
Brilliant spot! £10 a bit steep for what's there but the view is stunning
3 05 2021
A great spot with views of Chesil Beach to one side and the nature reserve on the other. Feels safe with many campers and toilets just a short walk away. It does cost £10 for the night however you can park just round the corner in the street for free.
3 05 2021
Great sleep with a fantastic view. Pay the security guy £10 for the night. Quite a few campers here on the bank holiday, might want to get here early for a good spot.
30 04 2021
Stayed 1 night. for £10 well worth it. stunning views all round and a nice stroll in the evening. security guard very helpful.
26 04 2021
Amazing views day and night in these carparks, £10 a night from the warden who was very friendly and you get 24hrs security, toilets are just behind the hotel with a water tap 5 mins down the road at the petrol station by the car wash , 4G fast Internet and decent place to park even for a few nights getting to watch the sun rise and set from your camper absolutely perfect spot
21 04 2021
Excellent place for overnighting,security present,all for ten pounds a night,rubbish bins and beautiful views
15 04 2021
An absolutely stunning stay. It has beautiful views overlooking the harbour and bridge. A security guard came round to collect money for the evening stay. It cost us £11 as we arrived at 5pm and were staying till 10am. Toilets a walk distance away open from 8am-8pm. Highly reccomend.
30 12 2020
Great spot! Bit of a detour from along the coast but worth it as views are stunning in the morning and it’s very quiet. We arrived late (past midnight) so didn’t see the sign or anyone collecting money? We’ll pay double next time :)
11 10 2020
This was a very good site and the views are spectacular - toilets just down the road - open 8am - 8pm. £10 to spend the night - man collects I’m the early evening - we spent two nights there and loved it. Walk down to Ope cove to see the pirate graves. We will defo go back.
11 10 2020
A really nice area with spectacular views. £10 a night for vans which is collected by an attendant. Toilet facilities just a few hundred yards away. Lots of other vans around so very safe. lots of things to see and do on the island.
23 09 2020
Fantastic spot and lovely views... £10 for the night which you pay to the attendant and he couldn’t be more helpful... toilets just behind The heights hotel... We are in an 8m motorhome and there is plenty of room to manoeuvre..
22 09 2020
Great spot with amazing views. £10 for an overnight stay but totally worth it
12 08 2020
Extraordinary views. Nice and quiet. Friendly attendent. £10 overnight charge, but it's worth it for this beautiful site. Toilets are a five minute walk away, next to the hotel.
10 08 2020
All car parks open now, but £3/day parking charge, £10 for overnight camping. The only way to pay seems to be via the car park attendant - ie. no machine or app
10 08 2020
Beautiful spot, we were here yesterday but didn’t stay overnight, however there is a sign saying you can stay over night for £10.
15 07 2020
Great spot when open. Got a night here but council moved boulders back this morning. No doubt someone will roll them away again.
3 06 2020
Would be a beautiful spot to sleep, but currently blocked off by big rocks due to COVID19 so you can’t stop. Worth a drive just for the views!
19 11 2019
Awesome place to stay for the night, plenty of things to explore around the Isle of Portland and right out your van door! Didn't come across anything regarding public toilets however
15 08 2019
Bester Parkplatz auf der Insel. Gute Aussicht und Wandermöglichkeiten starten am Platz. Nachts ruhig. Tagsüber auf den vorderen Parkbuchten viel Betrieb.
7 08 2019
Superbe spot pour une nuit ou deux. Vue incroyable. Très venteux mais OK avec le toit pour notre nuit. Balade sympa à faire autour de la colline à droite (qui cache une prison). Même si vous n’y passez pas la nuit, faites un arrêt ou pique-nique, la vue le mérite.
1 08 2019
Tolle Aussicht, schöner Platz. Übernachten nicht erlaubt, aber keine Kontrolle. mit uns standen noch andere.
11 07 2019
Avons passé deux nuits tranquilles. Beaucoup de promeneurs de chiens et de gens qui viennent apprécier la vue. Préférez les parking sans vue avec les arbres hauts pour être moins dérangés le soir !
14 06 2019
One of the best I’ve stayed at. Says no overnight parking but no one came to check. Great views and toilets at the hotel a 5 minute walk away
10 06 2019
Really great FREE place to stay. Flat, hard standing car park with lots of spaces. Many overlooking a stunning view down on to Chesil Beach. We stayed 3 nights without any bother and we weren’t alone, there were about 10 vans most nights.
4 06 2019
Eine der schönsten Aussichten auf’s Meer, tolle Spazierwege, ein Paradies für Geocacher und alle anderen im nahe gelegenen Tout Quarry Skulpturenpark. Die Toiletten sind tagsüber geöffnet und sauber, es gibt sogar warmes Wasser! Die Plätze bieten nicht viel Privatsphäre keiner stört sich jedoch an den Campern. Man sollte sich aber zurückhalten, was große Aufbauten (Tische, Liegestühle etc.)!
17 04 2019
Superb view, and we were about 5 vans
26 03 2019
Great location only 1 other van there, very peaceful night and excellent walking area.
18 10 2018
Mooie gedoogplek op een berg bij "Tout Quarry Sculpture Park". Geen voorzieningen maar schitterende vergezichten. Wij hebben hier in oktober 2 nachten gestaan.
17 10 2018
Nous y avons passé une nuit agréable courant août 2018, utiliser le petit parking le plus haut si possible, il y aura moins de passage, magnifique panorama
16 08 2018
We popped up last week after we spent 3 nights in Weymouth port. Granted it's nice here but if I went back between the two I'd chose the port.
7 08 2018
You don't get much free. But this a great place to visit. Great views. great place to go for a walk. or bike ride. It states no sleeping over night. but people do..
21 06 2018
Effectivement la vue est magique ! Si vous aimez la musique les dérapages en voiture, les motos bruyantes, les kekes du coin vont vous ravir. Bref super le jour peu devenir moins sympa la nuit venue.
9 08 2017
Lovely views well worth a visit, no facilities but a quiet location with other motorhomes
