Overnight parking at Poole ferry terminal is available alongside the check in lanes. This stopover facility enables motorhomers and caravanners to be in the right place at the right time! This is a great solution for those catching an early ferry, noting that some campsites do not allow vehicle movements within certain hours.
At the time of writing, the fee is £5.00 for overnight caravan parking. The same tariff applies to motorhomes too. The overnight fee is payable at the “Harry Rocks” cafe, adjacent to the check-in lanes.
For those spending the night at Poole before a crossing, follow the signs for vehicle check in. There is further signage detailing the tariff. For those leaving a ferry, follow the white sign for “caravan parking”

The area is quiet enough at night. However, the “Barfleur” Brittany Ferry was in residence overnight with her engines running, but the noise was nothing to get upset about. A large ASDA supermarket is about fifteen minutes walk away, with a similar distance to Poole shopping centre.
There are two ferry operators serving the Poole ferry terminal. Condor Ferries have their high speed service to the Channel Islands/St Malo whilst Brittany Ferries have a service to Cherbourg.
