Why stay here ...

Great Yarmouth Racecourse Club Site is located in an excellent position next to the racecourse should you fancy a flutter and the famous 18-hole golf course offers hours of leisurely pleasure. The caravan site is a mere 300 metres from the seafront, with a bus stop just outside the site entrance making it perfect for sunbathing in summer and long relaxing strolls. Also within the lively holiday resort of Yarmouth, visitors have access to a self-contained six-acre pleasure beach complete with countless traditional seaside attractions to delight both young and old.

With a bus stop just outside the site entrance there are many attractions within easy reach of Great Yarmouth Racecourse Club Site including the Yarmouth Time and Tide Museum, the Sea Life centre and Thirgby Hall Wildlife Gardens, which houses an interesting range of big cats, crocodiles and other reptiles. Moving inland from the caravan site you will discover the Broads, popular for romantic boat cruises and the rolling unspoilt beauty of Britain's newest National Park. Great places to visit during a day trip to the Broads include the National Trust site, Horsey Windpump and nearby coastal town of Sea Palling, which boasts a sandy Blue Flag beach.

**Members are welcome on site during race days, however we are unable to accept arrivals on a race day. Dogs are also welcome on race days but we ask that you please keep them on a lead. Visit the Great Yarmouth Racecourse website for the most up to date information**

Nice Stay

Stayed here for a few days recently. Really big wide roads on the approach, across the horse racing track into the site. As usual the wardens were amazing - very helpful and friendly. Washrooms were immaculate during our stay and covid safe. We didn't need to queue very often to used the facilities which was lovely. Some reviewers grumble about the standard of the grass on the pitches. I can see where they are coming from - the classic perfect grass lawn is not here at Great Yarmouth. But, in defence of the CC, this site had a very sandy soil so probably not the best place in the UK to try to grow grass, especially with the camping traffic a popular site like this generates. And in all honesty the free draining soil meant we did not get stuck in the October mud and no puddles in the grass so in our opinion the mainly grassy pitches were a great compromise between practicality and aesthetics. No protection from the wind as the site is very open plan. We found the wind was blowing alot during our visit and there was no getting away from it as there are no bushes or trees to act as a wind break. This meant a few times our sleep was disrupted by wind noise and our motorhome rocking in the wind. Not a disaster but worth considering if you are visiting like us, out of season. If you want to visit Great Yarmouth is is an easy level walk or cycle to the town. We loved the "kiss me quick" atmosphere of the town. Plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants to visit AND they have Ceasars Palace (Las Vegas anyone?) plus Joyland - what more could you ask for!!!

Thank you!

Wanted to sincerely thank the Wardens for making our first experience a good one. They could not have explained everything more and made everything easier if they tried and it is very much appreciated. Facilities were very clean and we were made to feel most welcome. Lovely 10 min walk to the very quiet sandy beach was just what we needed - thank you! Looking forward to revisiting again on raceday.

Nice Site

Visited in September 2020. Originally booked two weeks but changed to one week when we learnt about racing day restriction movement, on this occasion it was three days in one week. Realise this wasn’t down to the Club but Racecourse. Site wardens are very friendly and helpful. After reading reviews about grass condition we wondered just what we would end up with. Have to say we found the grass a bit patchy in places but please remember this site is close to a beach so will have sand about! We found it perfectly acceptable. It must be hard maintaining grass on a busy site, but we felt the wardens did their best. Toilet and shower blocks felt very safe to use with the restricted number system in place. I feel hand sanitizer at water, waste and chemical toilet stations would be a benefit. Another good stay at Great Yarmouth.

Well travelled

Very disappointed with the ground on this site . It is about time something was done about the grass or lack of it . We booked a grass pitch but finished with a dirty sandy pitch..I. am sure something can be done when you look at the beautifully grass racing track. This review doesn't include the wardens who were very helpful and facilities looked after very well. Also very disappointed with the club for not supplying hand sanitizer at service points. I will not be returning to this site although it is well placed but do not want to pitch on sand Come on CAMC get your act together and sort out the grass.

Close to the beach and the delights of Gt Yarmouth

Our first stay here or any racecourse site. Friendly warm booking in and a decent level pitch found easily even though very busy. We didn’t use the facilities through personal choice due to COVID-19 but all precautions seemed in place. We loved the walks on the beach and river but were less impressed with the town but that’s a personal opinion,
