Quiet site and a good base for visiting the surrounding area.

We picked this site as a convenient base for visiting relatives in Port Isaac. The site is generally on a slope from back to front and if conditions are wet could cause problems if you are positioned on grass. There are some hard standings in the middle of the site but these are usually the first pitches to be taken so if you want one of these, arrive early. Many people have complained about the electricity pylon on site but we had no problems with this. The toilet facilities are a bit old, but they function ok. The dog walk is very small but there are plenty of lanes nearby to exercise your dog(s). The town is a few minutes drive away and has a few shops. We can recommend the fish & chip shop. There is also a shop attached to the local petrol station which is very handy and a golf course close by. If you are expecting a club site with fantastic modern facilities, lots of hard standing, super fast wi-fi and all the mod cons then you will be disappointed. If you want a site that is clean with all the basics you need and is an ideal base for visiting the surrounding areas like Boscastle, Tintagel, Port Isaac and Wadebridge etc then this is the site for you. We will definately visit this site again.

Mediocre Stite

We stayed at this site as it was convient for an event we were attending and luckily managed to obtain the last hard standing. The Good Points: Beautiful views over the valley, friendly wardens and the access straight on to the lane from which you can access a number of footpaths which are ideal for dog walks. All usual service points available. Loved the fairy lights in the trees and the general upkeep of the grounds was good. The Could Be Better Points: The large pylon in the middle makes quite a noise when wet or windy and those lovely views also mean you are exposed to wind and rain. The dog walk is tiny. The toilet blocks are old and tired, and certainly the ladies could have been cleaner - lots of cobwebs in the ceiling and lights, hair on the walls that looked like it had been there a lot time. Showers are not that powerful and the tiles look like they could do with a deep steam clean. The WIFI (free version) is useless but not just on this site! The Wider Area: Camelford itself sadly does not have many amenities and sadly since the Town Council have changed the car parks it is very difficult for any form of motorhome to part (we are under 7 metres and were prohibited from the car parks. The site does however give you good access to some of the North Cornwall attractions such as Boscastle and Tingagel, both of which cater for motorhome parking.

Not the best

Probably the worst CAMC site we have visited and we have visited plenty, poor signage from the main road so easy to miss. The site is mostly grass and quite muddy when wet, we arrived in a large MH to be told we needed to leave as we were too heavy for the grass and there were no hardstanding's left, nope, not a great start. Eventually managed to get a HS (Much longer story) after we found one where someone had left early although we have to request that the wardens contacted the person to check. Very uneven pitches, you will need blocks and chock and plenty of them. It is in the country so expect it to smell especially near the road end as there was a mound of manure in the field opposite. Toilets were clean, but the oldest and poorest facilities compared to other sites. Would we return? absolutely not On a positive note, the town and only pub is only a 15 minute walk away, or turn left out of the site and its a lovely walk to the 14th century church at the bottom of the hill which you can go in and explore, also a golf club you can use the bar and restaurant of, but currently not open to non residents due to C19.

Lovely small site but a little isolated

We have just had 6 nights at Camelford. Overall an enjoyable stay. The site is spotlessly clean and well cared for. The shower block is probably the oldest we have seen on a club site but still adequate and very clean. The wristband Outside the facilities system worked well and seemed better than on other sites where everyone had a band, much less confusion and never had to check if anyone was there or not. There is an Electricity pylon on site in a dominant position so be aware if you have worries about these. The dog walk is tiny and our dog refused to do anything in there, but there is a small green next door. On the whole one of the less dog friendly sites we stayed on due to lack of lead free area. Be aware that the site is quite exposed in some parts, we had high winds and several of us lost our awnings despite anchoring them well. The wardens were friendly, helpful and lovely. Fab fish and chip shop in Camelford.

Great stay for our first trip since lockdown

Pat gave us warmest welcome we have had when we got to the site and made us feel at home right away. She and husband Mick are so friendly, helpful and hard working. We were lucky enough to get a hard standing for our motorhome, so no issues with wet grass etc. The facilities are perfectly acceptable and despite there only being 2 showers and 2 toilets available, there was never a queue when I used them. There is a good local bus service to Padstow, Bodmin and Bude - for Tintagel and Boscastle. However, the routes are through the local villages and therefore not speedy on the longer routes. A taxi to Tintagel and bus back works well. The Camel Trail between Padstow and Wadebridge is a lovely walk and fits in with the buses from the site. St Julitta's Church just down the road from the site is worth walking to, lovely location and fascinating gravestones. Thanks Pat and Mick for a great stay.
