Great location for Southport Town

Southport Club Campsite
Spent 3 nights at this site in early August. Straight forward to locate and easy check-in. Site is divided into two halves; one area is open, the other appears to be cited around what was a roadway. The latter is very narrow and bordered by over-bearing trees. There is no turning point at the end of the Esplanade section; we would suggest you walk down to view the pitches first. Our pitch in the open area was well spaced apart and level - however unfortunately, a large number of members appear oblivious to the Club Rules and were constantly walking between and over our and neighbouring pitches to short-cut the route to the washrooms - this was very irritating. The wardens are visible, checking pitches etc and on two occasions, had the need to ask members to contain their outfit and awnings/windbreaks within their pitch areas - not on the extended grass area behind your pitch. Facilities were clean and spacious; however, the 'hot' water for showering and more importantly for dishwashing was mostly tepid. To access the beach/sea, you need to cross quite an expanse of Saltmarsh which was muddy and messy and the sea itself was approx 1 mile distant. Adjacent to the site is Victoria Park where various events are held each year - check before you book - but also there is a model engineering club which operates model boats, a ride on gauge railway and radio controlled racetrack - these operate on Sundays and provided much interest and amusement during out stay. The walk to town is best tackled via Rotten Row, which presents a beautiful display of flowers and shrubs for the entire length of the road. Lord Street itself has many cafes/bars/bistros with most offering under canopy pavement seating areas. We enjoyed a late breakfast at The Pavilion and an evening meal at The Potting Shed - both very enjoyable. For the family entertainment, there is plenty of activities including an amusement arcade, fun fair rides, paddle boats etc at the Pier - which were all busy and thriving. Everything is easily accessible on foot.

Southport Club Campsite
Had a great service pitch (106) huge pitches still had a issue with lazy sods taking shorts cuts to bathrooms and also would prefer combi locks on toilet doors instead of keys kept forgetting mine so 2visits every time probably an age issue. But overall great place to visit ,pity Victoria gardens were no access due to setting up for flower show.

Excellent as always

Southport Club Campsite
Another most enjoyable stay at Southport. As always, the wardens are hard working, friendly and great sense of humour right from check-in. Check in is speedy, efficient, friendly. The site is so well maintained,both the facility blocks and the pitches. This site is within easy walking (if your are reasonably mobile) distance of the town, including the historic Lord Street, the long pier, beach, and supermarkets. Plenty of eateries and watering holes, including 2 Wetherspoons, and more traditional pubs. Decent shopping too, including M&S. Our favourite site, which we visit at least 4-5 times a year all seasons, even though we are based in the Midlands. A big thank you to all the wonderful wardens here.

Great site

Southport Club Campsite
We stayed here last week and as always enjoyed the holiday. Site kept clean as are facilities. Love the variation of cleaning times in the toilet blocks. Be good if other sites could clean in the afternoon when site is quiet. Wardens friendly. Only niggle is that shower cubicles other than disabled cubicle be fitted with a handrail. Otherwise will definitely return. Southport though not a fault of caravan club is in need of street cleaning especially the main shopping precinct. Be good if council addressed this.
