Finding a campsite can be tough work. Whether you’re looking for somewhere to quickly park up for the night or a fun filled adventure park-style campsite, there are thousands to choose from. That means you can a lot of choice, but research can be crucial to finding a site well suited to your motorhome adventure. From our own holiday and travel experience, thinking about where to go in a motorhome can help you fill your adventure with things to do, and finding the right place to stay can be just as important in making your holiday all the more memorable.
One place to start is Google Maps. Simply type your chosen destination followed by “camping”. You should get a list of results organised by distance and how relative it is to your search. This is great if you want to find a campsite close to a specific attraction or landmark you want to visit, for example: Corfe Castle camping.
In addition, all of our vehicles are members of the Camping and Caravanning Club and you can use their online directory to find sites and you can give them a call to make a booking. Find out more about the membership here.
We also give you membership of ACSI which is useful if you’re venturing abroad to the rest of Europe. On their partner website EuroCampings you can search for sites with particular facilities. So if you are looking for a site with a Tropical swimming paradise that allows dogs in high season, the ACSI can help you.
Finding a Campsite Through Directories
Pitchup allows you to search your location, pitch type and dates, with a directory of over 2,000 UK campsites to choose from. You can compare campsites and book through their website, or redirect to the campsite’s own site.
Search for sites, originally an offline database, is great for finding not only campsites, but stopover places for motorhomers too. Stopovers tend to be pub car parks or other pieces of private land that the owners open up for motorhomes to stay temporarily. Most commonly, you’ll find you are free to stay the night as long as you pop in and spend a few pounds on a drink and dinner in the pub.
There are lots of other directories out there, so if you’re feeling stuck just ask! We can help you with some suggestions to get you started.
Things to keep in mind
When choosing your campsite, it’s good to make sure you are on a bus route or have a level cycle ride in to town. Doing so means you won’t have to pack up the motorhome each time you want to pop out for your loaf of bread, milk and favourite beer to enjoy that evening.
