Strolling past the exclusive shops in historic Lord Street with their vaulted canopies and Victorian glass is like stepping into another era. Opposite the site, there is a nature reserve, Victoria Park with its croquet, bowling greens, and flower show in late August, as well as plenty of family fun on the nearby beach. The Merseyside caravan site is ideal for dog owners, with plenty of lovely walks in the local area, such as Formby beach.

First Visit

Southport Caravan Club Site
This was our first visit to the Southport site and we loved it! The wardens are really friendly and helpful, the site is well kept and the facilities are spotless. We had been warned about the poor TV reception, but we must have been on a good pitch as we didn’t have any problems at all. There are plenty of places to visit nearby, we went to Liverpool for the day, visited Crosby to see Anthony Gormley’s Another Place and had a walk into nearby Birkdale. Walking into Southport is an easy 15 minute walk (either along Rotten Row from the rear of the site, from the main entrance, or from the far end of the site into Victoria Park) where there are lots of shops and places to eat. We had a couple of lovely meals at the Fishermen’s Rest, which is about a 5 minute walk out of the back of the site. We enjoyed it so much that we’ve already booked for next year!

Wonderful Clean Quiet Campsite

Southport Caravan Club Site

A wonderful campsite within walking distance of Southport town and the beach. The Staff are very friendly and keep the site immaculate. We enjoyed the peace and quiet there so much we extended the stay by another night. There are no facilities for children on the site, however the town of Southport with its pier have plenty of places for children to enjoy. I will be using this site again as an escape from the busy world.

One of the caravan clubs top sites

Southport Caravan Club Site
Top site in great location with enthusiastic and cheerful wardens that keep the site spotless. The only downside being the poor WiFi and in some pitches poor TV reception. As this site which is one of the top sites in the network some investment to correct these problems would be greatly appreciated

Another wonderful visit

Southport Caravan Club Site
This was our 3rd visit to Southport and yet again we weren’t disappointed. It is in a great location for visiting the town and walking along the Esplanade. The added bonus was the Firework Championships, we left on Sunday morning but were lucky enough to see them on 2 nights, an amazing display, free for us sat outside the caravan with a glass of 🍷. The warden here is trying very hard to plant and re-wild areas in the “new” section of the site, he has planted saplings and grasses. I hope by the time we next visit these areas will look very different. All in all another great visit, looked after by wonderful wardens, had good weather and met some great people. Thank you 🙏

Great site, pity about the Wifi

Southport Caravan Club Site
Stayed a few days at the weekend as it’s on our list of favourite sites with excellent walks for the dog and conveniently located for parks, dunes and lakeside walks. Seemed to be a lot of visitors new to the site as we heard a few asking for the shortest route into Southport centre. We usually walk through the park, over the road and along the lakeside but as our dog is getting older we now use Park and Ride from the Ecocentre just a short walk from the site entrance. You don’t have to use the car park, just walk to the car park pay booth, pay the £2 (car fee) and you get a Park and Ride ticket. Buses run every few minutes and you can hop on and off as required. The route is along the Esplanade then loops round returning along Lord Street (main shopping street). We used it on Monday and the £2 for the two of us plus dog is great value. The only negative about the site this time was the abysmal access to the site Wifi. Maybe it’s because our pitch was in the long thin stretch and signal wasn’t good but my iPad didn’t even list the Club WiFi as a possibility and I had to use tethering instead.
