Relaxing & Peaceful site

We stayed at Rookesbury for 5 nights from 14th September. We arrived on Monday and did not have to move our Campervan until we left to go home on the Saturday. Site is located in a very quite sheltered area surrounded by trees - the woodland walks can be accessed through a gate at the back of the site and we walked each day we were there and found many different tracks to explore - excellent for a squirrel chasing dog. We also walked into nearby Wickham for breakfast using instructions supplied by the Wardens which only included crossing 1 busy road - the rest of the route is bridal/footpaths. Another walk through the woods that we would recommend is to the Roebuck Inn where we enjoyed a very substantial lunch served by friendly welcoming staff - even our dog was made to feel welcome. Our week ended with a fish & chip supper from the chip van that visits the site every Friday. Facilities excellent with extra restrictions working well and all the wardens always had a smile to greet you. Highly recommend this site if you want to arrive, set up and not drive anywhere for a few relaxing days.

Thank you Wardens

This was our first trip post lockdown, and it's fair to say we were apprehensive. The work done by the wardens, before the site was opened, and whilst we were there, made the whole stay feel very safe. Our week away was probably the most 'normal' week we've had since March. The site was busy but there's plenty of space at Rookesbury Park.

Excellent, as always

This was our umpteenth visit to Rookesbury, but our first venture out since the beginning of lockdown, so were a little apprehensive. The site was the busiest we have seen it, but we needn't have worried. The booking in procedure was Covid secure, but very safe and speedy. The washroom procedures were clearly explained, and we were given a wristband with our pitch number on. Everyone complied with the rules, and we never had any problem. The wardens were great. Hard working, but very friendly. We really felt very welcome. The only negative we have, and this applies to all sites, was speeding drivers. Despite additional signs put up by the wardens stating the limit of 5mph, people were still driving at speeds approaching 25mph. On one occasion someone from the tent area came around a bend at such speed, he nearly hit me. He got a a severe reprimand! We were pitched near the exit, and quite a few cars went up the gears as they approached the gate. The club probably needs to spend more money in this area if people can't be trusted to comply. Perhaps more speed bumps, which are a real pain, but its better than a child being killed

Great Week Holiday!

We stayed 3rd - 10th August 2020 and it was our first visit to Rookesbury Site. We really enjoyed it. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The campers were friendly too. the site entrance was easy to get in and out of. We visited Portsmouth including the Museum & Art Gallery and Model Village. Portchester Castle and Hurst Castle (booked in advance due to Covid19 restrictions) and Southampton. We had not been to Hampshire before and had always wanted to see it for ourselves. What a lovely surprise and adventure! We really enjoyed it and we were blessed with good weather too! Thanks to the Rookesbury team for looking after us, we would definately visit this site again when we are next in the area. :)

Fantastic family holiday made better by brilliant staff

Our second trip to Rookesbury in the month of August. this one with 3 other families 6 adults 9 kids over 10 days. staff excellent, helpful, polite, sympathetic and always happy to help with a big smile. site was in great order. the shop and knowledge of the area first class. i cannot rate them higher enough. Downside The WIFI. we have been coming to this site for a good 8 years and worse than ever. paid £30 for the year and stood by the signal booster mask and its simply broken and not fit for purpose. great as kids had no gaming and i couldnt get work emails. but dont bother paying for it. CAMC you need to fix this to accommodate younger members and their families. you can go to starbucks and get it for free so to pay for broken wifi not good enough.

Fabulous Site

This was our 3rd visit to this site during August. Again we were not disappointed, friendly staff, clean site and great site in a great location. Perfect for families, couples etc. We went with daughter and grandson and we all had a great time. Pitch was perfect, lots of room around hardstanding. Lots to do around the area. The site is kept immaculate. Will definitely visit again.

Great Site

Just had our 2nd short stay since reopening. Site and Staff very good as we have come to expect over the years. We were not affected but disappointed to see many individuals ignoring safe use of facility blocks . Special rules for these times so simple but unfortunately some individuals just will not conform. Used our own facilities to keep away from the situations. Feel sorry for staff as no way can they be everywhere at once and anyway should not have to control this sort of blatant disregard.

Campsite

It appears that the CC has decided to branch out, changing several grass pitches from caravan use into tent use! This is a Caravan Club Site, not a campsite, if you want camping, there is the Camping and Caravan Club. I spoke to the warden who agreed, stating the club had already halved the dog walk area to accommodate tents. During these times of restrictions it increases demand on the toilet blocks to accommodate the campers.

Great, clean, spacious site

I've used this site a couple of times as it's close to my parents and my company's head office. Wardens are fantastic are very friendly, site is very spacious and the dog walking area is the best I've seen on any site. Great fun taking my young puppy over to socialise with other dogs. COVID safety precautions are great with each member having their own wristband. Definitely can't wait to go back.

Usually fabulous but noisy and a group exhibiting anti social behaviour

This is our local site and we visit often. However these past few days have been very noisy . All the children on the site were excited and well behaved. The kids were shouting and squealing with laughter , and it is to be expected in the summer holidays. The offensive noise came from drunken adults who were swearing loudly and partied until the early hours of the morning. The families had dogs with them who barked incessantly at times. (The owners ignored the barking) They had three caravans together . A couple in their late 70s told us that they were upset by their behaviours and fearful as a fight almost broke out. We arrived on the Saturday morning and apart from the early mornings, it was noisy and the noise escalated as the day went on. The females could be heard effing in front of their children during the day . We have always liked the fact that MCC members are respectful. We were quite shocked. I contacted reception to be told that it’s not the wardens jobs to police people. And they had not had any complaints, I explained that people may be fearful to complain . The warden explained that generally they ask members to speak to their neighbours, but the warden understood that this could be an issue. The warden said that the families could be evicted from the site if they witnessed anti social behaviours. I don’t know what time the wardens finish work, but if they walked around at 11pm at night , it wouldn’t take long for them to hear and witness anti social behaviours. I felt security was needed to manage this large group. It’s a shame numerous members had sleepless nights , and were subjected to witnessing appalling language and anti social behaviours The group were intimidating !! For the first time, we were very happy to leave
