Stayed here Friday 9 August 2019, location is open with no barriers as previously reported - now all clear.
Fantastic place to spend a night. Keep it clean and be nice and it should remain accessible.
Quiet at night. It is a sharp left turn from the A303 - keep eyes open for road entry point.

Took a drive to Stonehenge and tried the Drove. Yes it is open and when I went (July 2019) there were only two other vans there. Probably about a dozen by the next morning. The access is easy and the byway has been gravelled but a few lumps and bumps. Completely free (obviously no services) and you can use a public path to see the stones without the exorbitant fee. Took some great photos at sunset and sunrise. Magical

Stayed 29 July 2019. Top end of the drove would appear to be for campers passing through. Bottom end of the drove past entry to Stonehenge would appear to be where the long stay travelers congregate. All of whom were very friendly.
Suitable for all sizes of motor home, caravan and tents.
Lots of dog walks from the drove and of course spectacular views all around.
There is a walk past the Henge which gets you very close to the stones without making paymemt.

July 2019 THE ROAD IS OPEN. Apparently it was closed last year for re-gravelling, and it closes for the summer solstice, but we are parked there right now, 18th July 2019, and so are about 8 other vans.
The most popular area is just north of Stonehenge, where the road has a flattish section.
Access is quite good from Larkhill to the north.

Unique location for an overnight stop! The Drove looks to have been recently resurfaced with gravel and sand - suprisingly level and wide enough for parking on either side.

The most level areas seem to be on the section at the start of the Drove which also have the best / closest view of Stonehenge.

English Heritage allow general viewing of the stones for free - walk down the track to where paid visitors are dropped off by bus - you will be directed by security on a seperate track where you get within 20m of the stones (and even closer to the Heel Stone) with a great view. If you want to get even closer, you’ll need to walk to the visitor center to buy a ticket - about 20mins away.

This site is still open. The metal gate was open when we were there (4th Jan) and there were quite a few vans coming and going. Great spot for sunrise over the stones. Quite eerie with hundreds of crows flying around the site at sunrise and sunset. As you walk down towards the entrance there is a path to the left which you can walk past one side of the stones without paying.

We managed to navigate the potholes and find a spot on high ground quite close to Stonehenge. We saw a beautiful sunset and hopefully we will get a beautiful sunrise too.

Only ever accessed from A303 - do this going East bound only. Bumpy track but lots of space. Fantastic views of Stonehenge and a good walk into Amesbury (Wetherspoons, Aldi, Post Office and other pubs/shops/bakery).

brilliant site for wild camp. Access road is gravel/tarmac but firm and you can park either side of the road for the majority of the lane.
I have a 7.5ton motorhome and there were others in caravans and a couple of tents to but i met witha few other campers and we enjoyed a BBQ and a fire pit.
Very peacefull

Parked up in The Drove for a night and loved it!! Am still very new to wild camping so felt a bit nervous driving into the area as I didn't know how we'd be received but needn't have have as everyone we met was very welcoming. We parked quite far down the Drove (which was an experience in itself due to the potholes) and had stunning views of Stonehenge and surrounding areas. We chose to walk through the field to get a close up view rather than pay the £20 each to get in.
After stretching our legs for a while, we settled down by the log burner, ate dinner and chilled out with a cpl of ciders. As it got later, the number of people wandering past dwindled and we sat and watched the mist roll in across the fields - very spooky but an amazing sight to see.
Lazy start the next day, and once we were sure we hadn't left any mess we headed off about 11am but will definitely be back again soon!
Couldn't really rate the facilities as the only ones around would be in the visitor centre, although the guy selling strawberries was great!!

Views of Stonehenge . As mentioned gravel road lots of large pot-holes . But several level spaces ,4 others campers there on our visit. Can walk in field next to stones but to get up close need to pay£20!! Apparently council come round in the morning to move people on but as we left at 6am cannot confirm this. Very busy with cars stopping to look/walk but calms down after sunset. When you exit slip road ( the closer you get the worse the pot-holes get) straight on to A303 which is busy as traffic builds ....this is a very busy and congested area as several points where two lanes merge to one. Petrol station and Nice pub The Bell Inn (heading east) good food good prices nice staff and big car park to pull into to refresh before your stop over.

An excellent spot for visiting Stonehenge BUT The Drove is an unmade road (a by-way) with vehicular right of way and, as such, it can be very muddy and there can be big potholes. I strongly advise approaching from the north as access from the south (A303) can be tricky because of fast traffic and - when I was there - the biggest potholes are at the south end.

Free parking on drove road overlooking the stones. No facilities but great views and quiet at night once the day visitors have gone home. You can walk up to the fence and see the stones for free or go to the visitor centre and pay for the bus ride and entry.
