Why stay here ...

In an area which traditionally has a mild, warm climate making it an excellent summer getaway, Blackpool South Club Site is level and open, with good screening from the road. This caravan park in Lancashire gives visitors convenient access to the town of Blackpool, which as Britain's premier seaside resort offers non-stop amusement for the whole family from morning to night. Children can also enjoy the playground on site, and horse riding which is based just around the corner.

Blackpool South Club Site is an ideal gateway to the beautiful Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks. Famous attractions include The Sands and the Illuminations (late August to early November) and the Blackpool Pleasure Beach where you will find thrilling rides like the tallest, scariest roller coaster in the UK.

But the reasons to stay at Blackpool South aren't limited to the city limits of Blackpool. Just a few miles south of the site are the more relaxed towns of Lytham and St Anne's, famous for their golf courses and elegant shopping arcades as well as beautiful restaurants and exhilarating walks. St Anne's has plenty of sandy beaches ideal for families, and in Lytham you can take a leisurely stroll around Lowther Park or along Lytham Green. Blackpool South Club Site really does have something for everyone anytime of the year.

Motorhome with no car

The site was lovely and clean and wardens very friendly. We have a motorhome without a car and I would like to advise people In the same situation that there is no bus stops nearby and the nearest being around a twenty minute walk away. On day one we travelled in by bus at a cost of 7.60 for four adults. We can back by c cabs taxi from pleasure beach to campsite at a cost of £8.00. After that we had taxis everyday. Although the campsite was not on the doorstep of Blackpool we would certainly stop here again. Thanks to the wardens for all their hard work.

Lovely site!

A really well maintained site just off the motorway, clearly signposted and easy to drive into. Large hard standing pitches are laid out amongst mature trees to create a peaceful and relaxing haven just a short drive from the hustle and bustle of Blackpool. Very dog friendly! Dog walks straight from site and a great little enclosed dog area which is totally fenced in so that you can safely let dogs off the lead. The wardens were lovely! Very cheerful, welcoming and efficient. Check in (during these strangest of times) was easy and safe. Lots of written information about social distancing on site and how to stay safe meant that there was no confusion about what was required of everyone. Everything was explained with clear instruction. The toilet/shower block was immaculate and the wrist band system to ensure only 6 people were in the building at any one time was excellent. We loved this site so much we made another booking to return again in a few weeks. If you want a base to explore the North West then this place is right up there with the best options.

Great site

Lovely site just on the outskirts of Blackpool, the wardens are lovely and helpful on arrival check in was easy. The site is not massive plenty of space between the pitches. We were lucky to get a plot with a lot of space behind our van for our son to play with other children safely. The facilities were spotless clean I personally never had to queue for showers. The site is 5 minutes drive from Blackpool South and10 minutes from St Annes which has a lovely beach and is much nicer. We would certainly use the site again.

Nice site & wardens but shame Blackpool going downhill

We stayed for two nights at Blackpool South Club Site and having stayed here before, I still think that site is good. This was our first outing due to the Corona Virus lockdown and could only manage a short break. We stayed during Covid & social distancing and I have to say that the wardens - who were really helpful and friendly, are doing a fantastic job under the current circumstances. Our chosen pitch was to the right of the entrance barrier and amongst trees. Unfortunately, we could not use our satellite dish due to the trees and this Club site does not have a TV aerial outlet in the EHU Bollard. The alternative was to pitch next to a family in a trailer tent with 100 kids whereby all of them seemed to have different luminous hair colours sat out drinking. So we forfeited the TV! There is road noise although distant but Cropper Road attracts the odd big bore exhaust driver during the night, so my recommendation would be to select a pitch on the far side away from the entrance for maximum peace. We took a taxi into the centre and used the sites recommended taxi company. Great going outbound but failed to show for the booking on the return. We did manage to get an alternative booking though. Blackpool - I've been going to Blackpool at least once a year from birth and I have to say that this year, I was so disappointed. Firstly, there seemed to be zero social distancing at any of the attractions and staff weren't policing it whatsoever and without facemasks. South Pier - we was rubbing shoulders with others as it was that busy and hardly anyone else was wearing a face mask. Even the pier staff weren't bothered. Then there was the drugs. It seems acceptable now to smoke marijuana on Blackpool promenade and have a competition in who can say the worse swear words aloud. Unfortunately, such scenes were common between walking from the Pleasure Beach to the Tower. I accept that times change but if that is now the norm, I don't think that Blackpool will get our future business. As someone else has mentioned, Lytham St Annes is lovely and at the opposite to Blackpool and I would recommend visiting here for the town high street shops and the beach - which are clean. For those new to Blackpool, the site is situated at the end of the motorway, within 5mins drive to a supermarket & fuel and 10mins drive to the seafront at Starr Gate. For motorhomes, Public transport is a bit of a trek to the bus stop and I would suggest taking a taxi (between £8 to £11 depending on driver) or hiring a car.
