Why stay here ...

Wirral is a peninsula of great natural beauty, and the Wirral Country Park Club Campsite is set right in the midst of some of its loveliest landscapes with wonderful sea views. Located in a country park of 2,000 acres of unspoilt nature, the caravan park is made up of several pitching areas attractively separated by trees and shrubs. Some pitches overlook the Dee Estuary, which is one of many ideal places for scenic walks. There are lots of lovely wooded areas on site and plenty of bird life to observe.

Wirral Country Park Club Campsite puts you within easy reach of a wealth of fun activities to suit all tastes, whether for sports enthusiasts, young families or those with ultra-relaxed pursuits in mind. You will find the caravan park just perfect for sailing - no less than seven private Sailing Clubs offer temporary and family membership to visitors. Apart from a huge choice of unforgettably scenic walks, the area offers power-boating, water skiing and other water-based sports to enjoy along with several indoor swimming pools, sports and recreation centres and golf courses. One of our Merseyside touring sites, you’ll be conveniently located to visit Liverpool and explore north Wales.

Every Club Site should have a Phil!

Wirral Country Park Club Campsite
We had just arrived at this beautiful site with its stands of pine trees and coastal views when my husband colllapsed at a pub a few miles away. He was taken to hospital and the Manager there kindly brought me and our new rescue dog back to the Site. We had to leave the car with them as I am blind and so cannot drive any more. She alerted the Site office that I was on my own, and Phil and Donna immediately came to see if I needed anything. Happily my husband was returned to me at 0130 hours the next morning and, when he went to enquire about local taxi services, Phil offered to drive him across to pick up our car. He refused any payment and told us it 'was all part of the service'. We saw him several times after that, always working hard around the site which is kept extremely clean. When we were hitching up to leave we had an electrics problem, sorted quickly and cheerfully by Phil. He must have been glad to see the back of us, but instead he waved us off telling us to come back soon as they were always pleased to see new clients. What a star!

Great Site for Biking and Walking.

Wirral Country Park Club Campsite
First up don't think getting there early will give you a chance of a pitch with a view across the estuary. As mentioned by other reviews, as soon as one on the estuary pitches becomes vacant someone will move from another pitch into the vacant pitch. I saw it happen twice in the 5 days I was there. I don't know if there is any answer to this practice. Apart from that the site is well run with friendly wardens who keep the site in a good condition. The site is great for cycling as there is a disused railway track just ouside the site. The wife and myself cycled to West Kirby, Neston and Hoylake on different days. These cycle tracks can also be walked but it must be slightly annoying for walkers to move for cyclists frequently. A good walk to be had is along the beach as far as the restaurant Sheldrakes and back. About 4 miles in total. As stated by others only one shower and toilet block. This block also has the toilet emptying compartment. The showers were hot and adequate but out of action for a couple of days whilst brand new boilers were fitted. No geat problem. All in all the site is well positioned and worth a visit.

Great Site. Fantastic location

Wirral Country Park Club Campsite
Lovely site, Facilities are a little tired but as with most CAMC sites lovely and clean. This site would benefit from an Elsan Point at the other end of the site as you find there is a queue at the only toilet block to empty cassettes. I found it quite irritating as we arrived to book in around 1.30 people already on site were coming into reception saying they had changed pitches just to get an estuary view this is unfair on the wardens and people arriving that day. There is a lovely coffee shop along the Wirral Way nice flat walk. About 3 mile walk into West Kirby where there a loads of pubs and shops.

Nice site poor member etiquette

Wirral Country Park Club Campsite
Stayed end of May 22 for the first time. Excellent site, peaceful and tranquil. Brilliant for long walks or cycling. Clean but toilets need a refurb. Arrival time is 1pm and like others we timed it wrong arriving around 12.45. Formed an orderly queue around 3 in line to be joind by many others before one o'clock. Yes our mistake but managed well by staff letting us on and paying later to save time. So thanks staff. Problem arose with other members who are selfsh, rude and no idea of etiquette. Whilst queuing in a orderly manner many sent out a scout to view pitches, nothing wrong with that as forward planning and having a couple of pitches in mind is good. Some however, sent partners in on foot to sit on empty pitches to assure they got it. HOW SAD !!!! We had seen two blatantly do this and as one was near us as we pitched, borrowing items from another member to reserve the pitch, it was obvious. They were challenged and made aware how ignorant they were to 1st come 1st aerved rules. Wardens were made aware and although they acknowledged it goes on didn't seem to interested in dealing with it ( to hard to police ) was their attitude. Well its not. Would take 1 warden to be out and about for around 20 mins during arrival time., and these members taking the P**s could then be penalised in some way. Otherwise cracking site and recommend 👌

A Beautiful Site

Wirral Country Park Club Campsite
Access was easy and on arrival we were told which pitches were probably free which we appreciated. We were lucky to find pitch 79 free, which was a corner pitch and with a partial view of the estuary. Being right next to the facilities was also handy. The facilities were clean but very busy on the mornings. We loved the scenic view here but the site was the least quiet we had stayed on. It wasn’t noisy - just children playing on a caravan site because the weather was nice. But not what we are used to. The walks here were great with the Wirral Way directly opposite the site entrance - it would be handy to have a sign here. There is a handy coffee shop not far from the site but we didn’t get chance to try it. During our stay we walked: along the beach to the sailing club, around the country park, to West Kirby and Hoylake and to Heswall, all directly from the site. On our last night we watched a beautiful sun set from the sailing club.
