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.

Just love everything about Blackpool South Club Site

I was new to caravanning this year, having bought a Swift Basecamp in April. There's only myself and my 9 year old son, however, the wardens are always very helpful from the first visit to the site. As the Blackpool Club site is close to my storage site, I have visited the site about 5-6 times this year, from long weekends to just one night a couple of times, as its that flexible using this club. The site is perfect and brilliant for families as the location for Blackpool and Lytham is fantastic at this site, with Lytham 10-15 minutes away and Blackpool just 5-10 minutes. The site itself is very clean and all the facilities are also very clean and well looked after. The pitches are great location. We prefer to go to the right as we come in as the site is quieter towards that side. As mentioned, the wardens are very helpful and genuinely nice people, they even helped me when my jockey wheel slipped out, to ensure I could get going ASAP. Just gutted now that the site is closed for winter, but the wardens deserve their break. Already booked in again for next year and cant wait!!

First Visit to Blackpool South

Very friendly welcome from the site staff when we arrived. It was half term so pretty busy and not much choice of pitch. We eventually pitched at the end of the site nearest to the main roads. Some noise but not excessive given the location. Facilities whilst not the most modern were perfectly good although from where we were pitched it is a long way to the nearest chemical emptying point despite there being a service point quite near but only for fresh and waste water. The motorhome service point needs upgrading to an open grill. Given that it was half term at £17 a night the site was good value. The main downfall of this site is its remote location especially if you don't want to take a motorhome off site. We booked in full knowledge of this situation. I don't know what the options are for the Club to work with the local council to get some form of public transport nearer the site? A mile and a half walk to the nearest bus stop is not really on. The site staff have worked hard to provide useful information on local transport including taxis for which there is a fixed price fare to the various attractions in the town. We also found that the metered prices from the rank near the Tower were very similar. However you have to be prepared for this to add up even after a couple of visits we spent £40. There is also information on parking motorhomes in Blackpool but it is restricted to a few places. I wouldn't put anyone off using this site but just suggest they are fully aware of the constraints before booking.

OK I guess

On the first night there was a party in a nearby house until 1am - so much noise - unacceptable. Surprised Wardens failed to complain or put info about it on their board. Small site. No dog walk and busy road to walk dog outside - poor really. All clean as expected. Near the action. Chip van - wouldn't bother - poor quality chips with loads of eyes in urgh! Blackpool - was on list - now off - wont be back! Lights so over rated. Run down.

Good site but let down by others

Arrived at 1pm as instructed on website and email confirmation, shame others did not stick to this request, always get the greedy ones don't you (this was a problem for us on departure as we left at 12, car and caravan had arrived at 12, blocking the road! We had a job getting out, as the road you come out of site is narrow and a busy. I feel sorry for the wardens trying to jugle cleaning and early arrivals that think they can swan onto site early. Pitched on first pitch, lot of dog mess on the grass around the pitch so had to move. What's happened to basic site manners??? People walking on your pitch, kids constantly around the car and caravan, dogs not on leads? I have kids but I also try to teach them the basics when on site. As you can see from the above the issues arose were related to other guests rather than the site. Some road noise but to be expected. On the plus side the wardens were very welcoming, the toilet block warm and clean. The site is a 10 min drive to Blackpool seafront (expect to queue from pleasure beach onwards). Drove in each day and parked at the back of the Bonny Street Market, Central car park. Close to all attractions and shops. Loads for kids in Blackpool, went to Pleasure Beach paid £100 for 2 adults 2 kids under 7. Found this expensive as kids only went on a few rides more suitable for older kids, stick to funfair on pier for younger ones! Went to the circus in the tower, worth every penny and get 34% off via Caravan Club. Always come this time of year to see the lights, it's quite special for children.
