Blackpool South Caravan Club Site

We arrived on Sunday 16th June. Lovely staff member advised us on a nice quiet pitch ( we haven't stayed here for a few years). Pitched up and had a walk round. We noticed several caravans of the same make pitched by the children's play area. After seeing several Van's coming and going with men we realised they were traveller families. I have no problem with anyone as long as they abide by the rules, something Travelling families find difficult. The Van's were driving round the site offering people various boxes of gardening equipment and one even offered a generator! The toilets were cleaned and within half an hour the children were using the ladies as a play area, running up and down screaming and banging doors and toilet seats. The toilets were littered with knickers, bras, shampoo, toilet paper, wipes and dirty nappies. We reported this, the poor couple running the site were tearing their hair out. The atmosphere was tense at best all weekend. Having read Google reviews this seems to have happened in previous years. We are really worried that the relaxed rules allowing commercial vehicles will mean travellers are welcomed at all the club sites. We will not be renewing our membership if this is the case! So in all, the site is in a great location, have a great team running the site and would be great if travelling families not permitted which is the case at most caravan sites.
Visited Sat 18/19 May. Stayed at the site for the first time. Only did one night, but really liked it! Within a short (10-15 min) drive of Blackpool and Lytham. Ideally located, not far from the motorway. I was aware, from other reviews about the road noise, but the warden did mention which was the quieter side of the site, to be fair, we decided it didn't matter which pitch we had, they are all good pitches. Didn't really hear much noise during the day, more obvious in the evening. Hasn't stopped us from making it a regular site for us. Lovely garden centre/cafe (with dog menu!!) within 15 minute walk down the lane. Also, a roller rink/meerkat/animal corner/skate park on the same lane. Great base for the area. (By car). Even though only given the site a 3 rating for families, there are plenty of family friendly things to do nearby
