I live on the edge of the Chase, but most of the car parks have signs saying no tents or overnight caravans. There are two formal sites, Sprinslade Lodge and a C&CC site at Rugeley, but the Forestry Commission have a site called Tackeroo, which only costs 10 a night as there are no toilets, although there is water and a chemical loo disposal point. I know it's not wild camping, but for 10 a night to camp in a pine forest I don't think that's bad. I haven't got my GPS with me, but if you type in Tackeroo you will find it. There is a Go Ape ropes course and two mountain biking trails within walking distance.
Cheers, John

PS, if you are staying on the Chase PM me and I'll come up and say hallo.

Have used Tackeroo with motorhome, Mitsubishi Delica and "Chuckle" (our Eriba puck caravan -everyone laughs but great fun). Great for mtb and walking plus even allow barbies. You have a limited no. of visits but a good venue for a family week end.
