Why stay here ...

Updated 6 May 2022: We are now welcoming arrivals up to and including Sunday 25 September 2022, departing no later than 12 noon, on Monday 26 September 2022.

Please Note: Although not expected, June-September bookings could be subject to cancellation if notice is received from the landlord.

The Club has been operating Baltic Wharf campsite for several years on a renewable, short term lease while the Council planned for redevelopment of the site into up to 190 new homes. After the departure date above the Club will sadly vacate the site.

Important: Significant construction works on the regeneration of Bristol's Western Harbour area is currently ongoing directly outside of the site grounds and will continue until the end of 2022 at the earliest. Noise disruption whilst on site can be expected seven days per week between 7am-7pm. Due to the extensive roadworks through Bristol, please ensure you review the driving directions on the "Map" tab below before you set off.

Baltic Wharf Club Campsite is a waterside haven, located right in the heart of Bristol's beautifully re-developed dockland and close to the city centre with its lively shops and entertainment. For families staying at the campsite, great attractions include the Zoo and Downs Park: a cosy and safe place for young children to play and also an ideal picnic spot.

Many excellent cycle paths can be easily accessed from Baltic Wharf Club Campsite, including the Bristol to Bath path if you are feeling particularly energetic and adventurous. A selection of boat trips are available from the campsite, which makes for an excellent way to take in some of the most scenic views in this part of the county.

A great stroll directly from site would take you around the harbour passing the narrowboat marina, S.S.Great Britain and the M Shed Museum. Continue along into the restaurant area of Bristol with a return along the opposite side of the harbour through Underfall Boat Yard.

From J18 of the M5 follow the A4 Bristow Broadway towards Bristol and Airport, at the roundabout continue to follow the A4 signposted City Centre, Bristol Airport and Park and Ride. Continue on the A4 with the River Avon on your right.

After Clifton Suspension Bridge above you keep in the right hand lane towards A3029 signed Weston S Mare, Airport, Bath and Taunton, stay in the left hand lane where you will cross locks and bridges of the river, the big red brick buildings will be on your left. Keep left and take the first exit (left) from Brunel Way, after you cross the river Avon. Safestore will be on your left, continue to follow this road (A370). Road bears round to the left, petrol station on left and continue to follow road.

Happy to be here.

Baltic Wharf Club Campsite
Always good to arrive here.choice of pitch which makes a change.hook up point different to some sites.better signs needed. Shower curtains returned at wash cubicles but not in showers. Not much noise from workmen.perhaps if they take longer to finish road then the site might stay open after September!! Still find things to do and places to go .we had been coming here for years.had trip on the matthew which we saw being built in the harbour area in mid 90,s here as well when launched here for millennium and too many birthdays etc to keep count of.still don't understand why council won't consider leaving it alone !! Far too many empty flats etc for sale all along harbour.return September.cant wait !!

Visit Bristol

Baltic Wharf Club Campsite
Great site for a visit to Bristol and especially the dockside attractions. The facilities are looking somewhat tired and run down so perhaps some investment is called for.

Love the location of this site

Baltic Wharf Club Campsite
Great site for location. Such a shame it’s closing..at some point! The temporary warden possibly needs to balance efficiency with bluntness. I thought he was a little rude whilst being efficient. There are ways of talking to people even people who possibly haven’t followed rules. All members are adults and no need to embarrass in front of other members. Just a quiet word would be needed, issue a bit of a warning. Saying that, he was frustrated the rules hadn’t been followed and was probably sick of it - I’d followed the rules, just witnessed how he spoke to the chap. But don’t let it put you off. If you’re like me, you have very little to do with the wardens. If you can get a pitch in site… do it before it closes. You won’t regret it.

excellent stay

Baltic Wharf Club Campsite
Really enjoyed our time here, it was excellent, site clean and tidy, staff polite and efficient, facilities were very clean. Would be happy to visit again and recommend to anyone. The site is extremely well located for our needs and well placed to visit SS Great Britain. Plenty to see and do close by. Pub just outside the back gate on edge of Wharf. It'll be a shame if the site has to shut at some point.

Here again.

Baltic Wharf Club Campsite
Good to be here again.well run by wardens and the little dog. We made bad choice pitch (39) as all family behind other side of hedge constantly walked through.doesnt do much for tree or hedge !! Pleased to see another date for closing.we keep thinking it will be our last visit.perhaps Council have finally seen how many people are happy to visit and spend money in the city. Looking forward to summer and autumn return.
