Great site for humans and dogs

Lovely quiet site, in a good central location for the Camel Trail and beaches, with some good local walks as well. Dog friendly pubs within walking distance and on the Camel Trail. Some pitches sloping, but not a problem if you have good levelling equipment. Very friendly and helpful wardens, we will be visiting again 16 nights was too short.

Pleasant site, but needs updating

This is the second time at this site, as has been previously mentioned by other reviewers, the toilet and showers are in need of a major upgrade. But the wardens do a good job of keeping then clean and the rest of the site is very tidy. I was disappointed that there had not been any Wi-Fi installed because I'm sure we were told last year that this was planned, but overall I would still use this site again.

Nice site in need of modernisation

I recently visited this site with my family and parents (previously visited by them) and it was fairly easy to find given this was my first time in Cornwall. The wardens were nice and friendly and the site itself is clean and tranquil. Throughout the seven nights that we stayed I would say that it was only ever half full at the most. The site is apparently privately owned and doesn't seem to be like some of the other Caravan Club sites that I've previously visited. The toilet and shower block certainly in my opinion are in need of modernisation. The hand dryer broke whilst we were there but was replaced with a better model. The shower cubicles could do with being updated as could the whole toilet block just to bring it up to the usual Club site standards. The pathways aren't lit up come dusk and as its a secluded site this means it does become quite dark and can make for a tricky walk back to your van. There isn't anything for children to do on the site so this meant taking our kids out (when the weather let up) or keeping them entertained in the caravan. On a whole the site is a pleasant one and more suited to caravaners who are after some peace and quiet. For those with families it takes roughly 25 minutes plus to find any attractions or things to do. I possibly won't visit the site again as I have two kids but please don't let my review deter others from visiting a pleasant and friendly site.

Ideally situated for a relaxing holiday in Cornwall

Lovely clean site and very well maintained by the wardens but what a shame that the shower block and washing up facilities still require updating. The mens block does not have privacy cubicles for sink washing and apparently the hand dryer had not been working for weeks!! The shower cubicles are very dated and tiny. This was our 3rd visit to Camelford Site as we love the area but it really is time some money was spent on improving the facilities.

loved this site

We don't enjoy the big CC sites full of hustle and bustle but this smaller quieter site was lovely, plenty of choice for a pitch, staff were fantastic and the place is centrally located for all sorts of days out. I was going to write that the hand drier in the gents was rubbish but it got renewed on our last day there!

A Gem of a site

Camelford Club Site is a wonderful little oasis which on first impressions did not exactly float my boat. However after a nine night stay we grew to love it for its simple charm, central location and excellent Wardens. Yes there is a pylon in the middle of the field but it is tactfully surrounded by trees and flowers. The windfarm across the valley consists of four large wind turbines but I never heard any noise from them. The nearby road does have some traffic but it is hardly noticeable. I have noted from a previous review concerns over site security. This is Cornwall not some inner city sink estate. Never once during the entire stay did we feel vulnerable and having learned of the Warden's previous occupation any fears I might have had would have been allayed immediately. Camelford is a nice little town with some decent pubs and rather good chip shop. Within 500yds of the site down a lane you have the Coach House Pub which sells good honest pub grub and beer at a price that won't damage your wallet. The bar staff and residents all being very friendly. To us a site is where we base ourselves to go out and explore knowing we have a safe haven to return to and Camelford Club Site did this job perfectly. There is no Wifi and I know the reason why so make sure you take you satellite kit if you want Sky TV. Some of the nearby pubs do have free Wifi so its not the end of the world...in fact it was quite nice to be off it for a week... This is a site we will be coming back to.

An Honest review

camelford caravan site As another reviewer stated the faculties are dated and tired ,the site is noisy at the eastern end by the road and the MOT garage adjacent to pitch 14 around 6am begins it's working day , revving cars and door slamming all day, we feel that we should have been warned of this, also not a fan of electric pylons and one stands in the centre of the site, another 'feature' not mentioned, signs under forbid pitching but my understanding is power radiates out over several hundred yards, not for me this Site security a joke, site accessible by road or from side road easily by walkers who can jump over the low wall, I made sure I applied all measures to secure caravan but was always pleasantly surprised when it was still there when I got back, no wifi was available despite my paying for a year upfront, so no online discounts to visit popular attractions could be attained, the dog walk a joke it's so small, site needs a total makeover to bring it to the normal Caravan Club standard A small site very central to the Devon and Cornwell coasts, there were in all honesty better pitches but the unhelpful staff failed to advise, I will not be staying here again and nor could I recommend it to other users based on a 10 night stay in August 2015

A fantastic site but could benefit from better sign posting from the A39.

Fab site, fab location and a fantastic holiday! Great site and great location for lots of fabulous places in Cornwall. Had a lovely feel to it. However, would benefit from better sign posting as it isn't the easiest site to find, as both ourselves and the couple before us struggled.
