Why stay here ...

Located conveniently close to the A23, the Gatwick Club Campsite is well suited as a stopover base for exploring the treasures of the West Sussex area. A half hour train journey away from nearby Gatwick, this caravan park and camping location is also perfect for sightseeing or shopping trips to London; whereas keen plane spotters will be well provided for with the site being so near to Gatwick Airport.

To the south of Gatwick Club Campsite (formerly Amberley Fields), the lovely coastal town of Brighton is within a short driving distance for all the benefits of a traditional English seaside resort. This lively town is known to have a bustling but friendly atmosphere and is famous for its vast pebble beach as well as its 1,722 ft long pier. Those keen to stock up on conveniences as fast as possible will find nearby Crawley is well located to the caravan site. Apart from the usual necessities, the West Sussex town offers a fun arcade and a select variety of restaurants and shops to enjoy.

Whether you’re camping or touring in West Sussex, our Gatwick Club Site is a great base from which to discover what the county has to offer. Neighbouring Surrey also provides a wealth of potential with Horley’s historic town centre just a stone’s throw away.

Great site great staff

We have returned to the Gatwick site on a few occasions since the Covid restrictions were lifted. We were fortunate enough to be here on the weekend it reopened as well as having a number of other weekend stays and a longer 10 night stay in early September. The site is much quieter now, each time we have been recently it has never been over half full. I think this is due to all the contract workers at Gatwick no longer using the site to stay at as they have unfortunately lost their employment. I don't want to sound like I am profiting from their misfortune, but it does make for better pitch selection and we have always been able to get a pitch even at the last minute, something we have struggled with in the past. The site is well located for local shops as well as having good transport links to the many attractions in the area. We would like to compliment the wardens, both the regular ones and the ones providing cover for their leave. The site facilities are kept spotlessly clean and there is a great system in place to help ensure social distancing. With regards social distancing "It would be perfect if all the visitors to the site could read the paperwork given to them on arrival to the site and then abide by the instructions and rules on it". This would make the wardens job easier as well as ensuring all visitors are safe. The club and wardens have gone to great lengths to ensure the sites can open safely. All visitors should respect that to help ensure the sites stay safe and open for us all to enjoy. That includes users of the storage facility who generally seem not to follow the procedures. Post Covid lockdown we cannot fault the staff or the site. If you did have a problem at this site I am sure the wardens would do anything in their power to help you, they have always been great with us. This is a great small and friendly site.

Lovely, well maintained and clean site but let down by the wardens

This is close to being an excellent site, it is really noisy but is reflected in the price, its very cheap. My only issue is with the staff, I think they fit the job title of "Wardens" verry well.......

Overnight Stop

Used Gatwick for 1 night to avoid travelling on the M25 on a Monday. There was very little aircraft noise due to COVID but I think it would normally be very intrusive.

Wonderful wardens

We stayed here over the weekend of the 19/20th October. My 93 year old father had been rushed into East Grinstead hospital miles from home. We booked this site so that I could be close by to be with him. Carol the warden was fantastic....she called me back to confirm a booking for me....I was in a bit of a panic. She reassured me that a pitch would be available as long as we needed it. Nothing was too much trouble....she was so caring kind and helpful. Dad was not in as long as we thought and again Carol was able to help and cancel extra nights I had booked just in case. The site was perfect and immaculate, shower block was spotless. I cannot thank her and Geoff enough. Wonderful wardens. What would we do without them.

Lovely small site, wonderful wardens

We stayed on this for only one night to prepare our van for our first ever long trip with it. Carole and Geoff and are amazingly friendly and helpful; noting was too much bother and we arranged temporary storage so that we can pick up and go on Saturday. The site itself is small as the site also operates as a storage facility but it is immaculate and the toilet blocks were always spotless. It is right next to Gatwick Airport so so can see the planes take off and land. Flying stops around 11pm and commences around 6am but I loved the sound of the aircraft - it sent me into the deepest sleep I've had in months! We can't thank Carole and Geoff enough and look forward to seeing more of them over the coming months as we come and go with our van.
