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. The caravan park 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.

Good site if you don't have a dog.

This is a site we use every year to end our season . The site itself is clean and well maintained with friendly staff. However, the experience is marred by the following:- having an arrival time of 1pm means , by the time you arrive, pitch up and erect an awning, the afternoon is gone and you are too tired to do anything else. There are only hard standing pitches which that are very difficult to get the steel pegs in. This year we bent 3 rock pegs, one of them almost by 90*. We have to put 3 groundsheets down to make it a bit more bearable on the feet. Lastly, the site entrance is on a very busy, narrow, badly maintained road. As we have a dog, you literally take your life in your hands each time you have to take your dog for a walk. There is also a rule where you cannot leave your dog unattended.Considering most people who come to Blackpool do so to take in the shows etc. this seems to discriminate against dog owners.

Bank Holiday Stay

Easy to access site straight off the motorway, upon arrival we noticed that it stated arrivals 13:00 fortunately for us it was about that time so please ensure you check arrival times when booking. Booking in was easy and straight forward (2 adults and 2 teenagers) wardens seemed friendly enough and were happy to give us advice on transport links into town best option the taxi service a fixed price of £8 to pleasure beach. Picked pitch 23 a lovely big corner plot but sometimes noisy due to Motorway and private road behind site fence. Site facilities well maintained and shower / toilet very clean. Site office sells a small selection of basic items both food and caravan spares. There is not a great deal to around the site no pubs or restaurants within short / easy walking distance. Overall a pleasant site and does what it says on the tin, but unfortunately Blackpool itself is now not a place we would rush back to, great for the teenagers not for us, not a reflection on site / wardens or the club.

Good as always

The wardens Dee and Steve were wonderful (we didn't see the other wardens so can't comment)Their hard work,neverending cheerfulness and humour make the site an excellent place to stay.The site is clean, organised and friendly. We have stayed many times over the years and enjoyed it, but (and we make this comment every year) the dog walk is rubbish! Please organise a new one. Thank you Dee and Steve for all your patience and hard work.

Great Site But..

This was a great site with the usual cleanliness and standard that we are used to with the caravan club. We chose this site for easy access to the Blackpool attractions as we have 2 children. What I hadn’t realised was the bus is over a 30 minute walk away, so I had to drive the family to Blackpool every day. We also had issues with the dogs as there is no dog walking on site and the roads outside the site were very busy. The wardens suggested a 15 minute drive to take them to the dunes. However the biggest issue by far was the attitude of the duty wardens! There was no friendly warm welcome which we are used to, just a very abrupt warden who was very unfriendly. During the stay I had further encounters with this warden and both were unfriendly and confrontational. On the last day of the stay the wardens changes and I have to say the new wardens were fabulous. Due to the unfriendly welcome, we won’t come back to this site.

Great site but.....

Very clean site and well maintained as it's expected of caravan Club sites this is no different we did enjoy our stay here however the location is a major concern as if you don't want to take your motorhome out yhen taxis or bus service is your only option as there is nowhere within walking distance so if you don't mind getting taxis and paying £8 just to get into town or walking for 30 minutes just to get to a bus stop this site is fine. On our next visit to this area we will probably stay in a campsite in Lytham itself as they are much closer to bus stops it's a shame because the club site itself is excellent just a very poor location as I'm sure I read in other reviews regarding this site
