The site itself is looking tired and could do with some investment into it as it's in a great location for touring the local area and visiting the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard is very good value. It's easy to park at the Submarine Museum or the Explosion Museum and then get the boat from there into the Dockyard (included in entry) or you can catch a bus from outside the campsite to the bus station at Gosport Ferry and get the passenger ferry over to Portsmouth. Turn left for Historic Dockyard or right for outlet shopping at Gunwharf Quays. One thing to be aware of is that the last bus from Gosport Ferry to Stokes Bay/Lee on Solent is at 7. 15 in the evening, after that it's down to taxi's.

Back to the facilities on site, I had trouble on quite a few occasions trying to get the key entry to work on either of the toilet/shower blocks and also saw other people whose cards failed to work. This was not too much of a problem to us being in a van but if you were camping in a tent you could have been left with no access to a loo during the night.

The showers did smell damp & mouldy. The grass areas needed tidying up - this campsite could be so much better.

On the plus side you could chose your own pitch and you were left alone by the staff.

Not sure if we would stay again.

I stayed here with my partner, daughter and 11 week old puppy Ben for 2 nights. A lovely place and absolutely great bunch of people who were all very welcoming.

We were situated next to toilets -our choice- which were kept very clean and tidy. Guy comes to pick up after messy people each morning. My daughter and puppy got lots of attention from residents.

Will def be staying again in a couple of weeks.

Thank you for making our stay a great one!

We booked in for 4 nights and arrived late afternoon. Was able to select our own pitch. Not enough signage for the drinking water, grey water disposal and chemical toilet disposal. The site is untidy and very tired. Although the showers were clean they needed a refurbishment and updating. The trees and hedges needed trimming and the pitches are not all level. The club house was ok with drinks prices being acceptable (we did not try the food). Again it could do with updating and money spent on it. Staff were friendly in the bar but not so at Reception. The location is very good but a little pricey and not good value for money.

Spent 3 nights here. Never been before. But read reviews. Yep the place looks like its had its best years, could do with spending a few job on it. But its one of the most friendliest place I've been too for a long while. Lots of hard standings or grass, pitch where you want, , club site got free webb. Dogs allowed in club house. Various events on in evening. Very friendly staff and customer's. Toilet block adequate. Showers hot. Free. Lots to do in area. Submarine museum. Diving museum. Beach. Portsmouth over ferry. £24 per night. Yes I would return.

Visited this site some years ago and it was bit scrufy then sorry to say it was worse stayed on the large field which had lots of litter from previous users not the camps fault but they should have sent someone to clean up used tissues etc looked like they had been there a while.

As this was a peak holiday period there were very few units on site could this be due to the above or the Road noise was constant didn't get much sleep the toilet block is in need of re vamp or deep clean this site;s location is perfect cant faut it for convience but bit pricy will visit again in the hope they have improved the standards.

We stayed here over the Easter break. We booked without reading any reviews first and when we read them we wondered what to expect! We need not have worried

We arrived and were told we could pitch wherever we liked on a hard standing, and there were quite a few pitches available.

There is a club/pub which we had a drink in, the food looked god but we did not try it. The site is within walking distance of Stokes bay and Lee on the Solent. There is a bus stop outside which we used to go to Gosport and then caught the ferry to P Portsmouth.

On the day of departure there was no pressure to be off by a certain time which was good.

The only criticism is the touring field is tired. The grass between the pitches needed cutting, there were some wooden barriers that had been left where they had fallen etc. The showers are in a wooden lodge type building and they were a bit cobwebby and the shower cubicles needed some serious elbow grease and mould killer. ( Take a pair of flipflops as the floors were a bit grotty). An extra hook on the door or a shelf in the cubicle would be good as they are very small and there is no curtain to keep your clothes dry and one hook isn't really enough to put your clothes, towel and wash bag etc on. Having said that the showers were hot and powerful.

Some of the comments mention nothing for children to do, we took ours and they were fine, if you want a play park etc then book a site with one! The children were welcome in the club and there is a small amusement arcade attached.

We would return.
