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.

Very Helpfull Staff

Gatwick Caravan Club Site
I would like to say thank you to the staff at Gatwick site for thier help when my caravan blew a tyre as we were leaving the site. If you like aircraft this is a very good site and when they are not flying it is a quiet site. It has some great open areas including a great enclosed dog walking area though whatch out for the rabbits. We had a great time Thanks again. Mr & Mrs Paisey

Planes

Gatwick Caravan Club Site
Lovely if you want to see the planes, but can be a bit noisy. Location is ideal, but could with more information where safe to cycle or catch a bus if you don’t have a car. Lovely friendly helpful staff.

Convenient, good for plane spotting but rules don't apply to everyone it seems!

Gatwick Caravan Club Site
First the good. This site is spotless, showers & facilities great, nice dog field with bins, lots of birds (& rabbits), interesting to watch the planes & convenient for the M23. I wouldn't stay here when the planes aren't stopped by Covid but people complaining it is noisy because of them I just don't get. It's Gatwick airport. Does that really need an explanation? The wardens are lovely too so lots to like. Yes there are a lot of people living here and I do get people take offence to them taking pitches, but we have done it whilst moving & they pay their way, so no problem for us. The problem we had was that there are rules but they didn't seem to apply to one family. Taking up more than their share of the site with belonging & washing. Child running around naked not under any control as is supposed to happen, which is embarrassing and dangerous for her & drivers. At 10.15 at night they all take a walk of the whole site, child shouting when people are in bed & dog running everywhere off lead under no control. Most club sites are strict but you get a standard you expect & we thought this let that down sadly. That may not offend some people but for us it let things down.

I'm glad we went during travel restrictions

Gatwick Caravan Club Site
This is a delightful site, with signage that was very clear and amusing. However, it is extremely close to Gatwick Airport, and I imagine that in normal times the aircraft noise is very intrusive. As there is very restricted overseas travel just now, this was not a problem, as there were no flights the evening we stayed there, and very few the following morning.

Great site great staff

Gatwick Caravan Club Site
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.
