My favourite place to go boating is Weymouth. The puplic slip is excellent and only costs £10 or you they have a park and launch (they launch and recover for you) at Blue Water Horizons in Portland Harbour which is a bargain at £20.

If you dont have any luck finding a slip near where you camp. We always found Beacon Hill Touring Park a pretty cool place to camp, its just outside Poole but only a 10 to 15 min. drive to Baiter. You might also wanna try Rockley Park in Poole, you can camp and launch the boat there. Usually have to book a bit in advance at rockley though!!
