Why stay here ...

Just 3 miles south of the cathedral city of Truro with its excellent shopping centre, restaurants, museum and theatre, Carnon Downs Camping and Caravan Park offers 20 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds with spacious pitches, backed by hedges and flowering shrubs. The nearby village of Carnon Downs is charming and peaceful, with a mini market, garden centre, fruit farm and fortnightly farmers' market. The caravan park is also located close to Looe Beach, which offers water sports tuition and hire. After a hard day's fun, there are three inns within walking distance to satisfy any appetite.

The Carnon Downs Camping and Caravan Park is an excellent base to explore the beauty of Cornwall. Wonderful walks can be enjoyed on and from the caravan site, with the River Fal and the creek side hamlets of Penpol and Devoran just a short stroll away.

Wonderful Site

As many others have said, this is definitely the best site ever. We stayed late May, early June... just a few days after they opened the café/wine bar. Everything about this site is first class.

Best site we have stayed on!

Although a long way to travel from East Yorkshire - it was well worth it! This site sets the standard towards which all others ought to strive. We stayed, for two weeks in The Paddock, which was a delightful spot, well away from any traffic noise. We received a warm and friendly greeting on arrival - mirrored by all the staff with whom we came into contact during our stay. The pitches are huge and well laid out and the immaculate state of the grounds is a credit to the unobtrusive staff who keep the place looking delightful. The toilet blocks - with individual shower rooms with toilet and basin really demonstrate what can be achieved with a little bit of thought for what visitors want and again, their cleanliness was a credit to the staff who keep them that way. One interesting point - and a bone of contention with many CAMC site users - despite there being no speed limit signs and only a few speed bumps around the Reception area - everyone seemed to stick to a 5mph limit when driving around the site. Probably something to do with everyone respecting their surroundings! Throughly recommended site and one which we would definitely use again.

This site is a really nice place to stay, the pitches are large, the facilities are very well maintained, the individual shower room/toilet/basin are a great idea, the dog run has got to be one of the largest I have seen one very big open field. The site is ideal for exploring Cornwall, being the owner of a large motorhome we hired a car to do our exploring, great local pubs to eat at, a big thank you to the boys at Enterprise Car hire in Truro, they came and picked me up from site and dropped me off when we were done, so easy!

September two weeks

We stayed here June 2017 for two weeks and returned as we enjoyed it so much. The site is kept uncomplicated and well run, facilities immaculate. What a treat to have a fully serviced pitch with plenty of room. The dogs have numerous choices of walks around the perimeter as well as a large field. Truro is a 10 minute drive away and the site is centrally located in Cornwall, easily found straight off a roundabout so fiddling around small lanes! Needless to say, we have booked for next year as many other people have done :-)

Now this is a Great site

Everything about this site is spot on. Although a large site, it is broken up into small chunks so feels friendly with large pitch sizes and very good facility blocks. Good bus services close to entrance if you do not want to drive. Very well kept and run. My only disappointment is - why have I not found this place before?
