First time of visiting rowan park and it certainly wont be the last, what a lovely site.

Staff very friendly and booking in quick and easy.

Pitch was flat and behind a hedge so felt secluded and private plus shelter from the wind.

Toilet block one of the best we have encountered at any site, spotless and no nasty whiffs, plenty of showers and privacy washing cubicles, water nice and hot.

They do advertise a play area but at the time we visited this was closed.

Very peaceful place considering that they were full this weekend.

If you want to brave a dash across the main roads there is a kfc, lidl, homewear shop on oneside and macdonalds and another homeware shop on the other. Sainsburys and tescos, pizza hut and a costa further down the road.

Butlins and the beach is about a 10 min drive from the site.

Will look forward to returning at some point. Highly recommended.

This is a pretty site. Unfortunately it is situated on the junction/ roundabout of four main roads. The site is very noisy and the traffic noise can keep you awake at night it can go on well into the early hours. There are a lot of boy racers and bikers who use the adjacent roads as a racetrack and meet at McDonalds opposite the site. There is no zebra/ pedestrian crossing at this junction ( it badly needs one) and it can be quite fraught when trying to cross. The site is as usual for a C&MC site well kept with good toilets, showers and washing up facilities. There is a big Lidl across the road from the site that stocks all you would need. Buses timetables are not the best from the site but they connect with other buses ok. It's a shame about the noise noise because this is the only real critic about the site.

Fantastic campsite, we stayed as part of a family group, which included 2 tents and a campervan. We were placed next too each other. The facilities on site were great and the ablutions were always clean. All the children loved the small play park on site. There is a great dog walk just outside the site and is just over the road is local fast food and a supermarket. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends.

To find site:- Leave Chichester A27 bypass onto the A259 signed for Bognor Regis. On the approach to Bersted take first left on roundabout onto new Bersted bypass which exits on a roundabout first left onto Rowan Way. Watch out for retail park to the right and the campsite entrance is on left opposite just before roundabout.

Rowan Park is situated just to the north of the seaside town of Bognor Regis. The site accepts non-members. The site has 92 pitches in total with most being on level grass but there are 32 hardstanding pitches and a handful of tent pitches. Some of the grass pitches are available for seasonal use. There are some nice stands of trees which help to divide the landscape up. Given their closeness to the main road some pitches that back onto the road experience traffic noise. This seems more of a problem during the day rather than at night although some people have reported noise from the fast food outlet opposite but this won’t affect the whole site and we didn't notice it during our stay. Electric points are convenient to pitches, they are rated at 16amps using CEE17 connectors. Terrestrial TV reception is rated as poor but each electrical bollard has a co-ax TV connections which can be used free of charge but you have to use your own cable. Satellite reception will require careful selection of your pitch owing to tree cover. The site has one centrally toilet block which is up to the usual Club standards. Services points are dotted around the site but inevitably some pitches require quite a walk away. The motorhome service point has good access but unfortunately still requires the lifting of heavy drain covers to facilitate the emptying of waste tanks. There is site wide Wi-Fi and time can be purchased online. I found the signal strength reasonable. One of the wardens was saying they are due to be connected to fibre broadband soon which should make it even better. For children there is a fairly small climbing frame. Reception sells a few essentials and next door is a small information room.

The seafront and town centre at Bognor is about two miles from the site. Further afield are Chichester and Portsmouth in one direction and Littlehampton in the other. Inland you have Arundel, Tangmere and Fontwell are within easy travelling distance. For those who prefer not to use their own transport there is a bus service from near the campsite although services run at 90 minute intervals Monday to Saturday, details from reception. In the town the 700 Coastliner bus route runs between Brighton and Portsmouth with quite a frequent service. Just opposite the campsite is a small retail park with a Halfords and a Lidl which is the nearest for food shopping. Within about a mile of the site there is a large Sainsbury’s and a Tesco.

New to touring caravanning we chose this site for it's location, our first extended stay anywhere, told the staff to video us putting up our awning for the first time as they could earn some money from 'you've been framed', staff were very helpful and friendly and very laid back, a very well planned out site, super clean and with plenty of room, some reviews complained of road noise, was in the back ground but not an annoyance, we were knocked out by the faculties, so modern and spotlessly clean, shops are nearby, major shops at that, supermarkets

The access was superb, a slight criticism is that to return the keys for the toilet and shower block at the end of your stay you had to block the road with your outfit, but that's a very minor point

We were as former tent campers more than impressed by the site and the location allowed us to explore from Brighton to Portsmouth and all places in between without hours of driving, Dog walking paths were fantastic with large fields nearby to really let them exercise

To sum up, we are so glad we joined the Caravan Club, we are informed that what we had on this site is the norm for Caravan Club sites

Storing our caravan in West Wittering we have used a lot of sites around the area. We recently bought a new van and joined the caravan club at the same time. Of all the CC sites in the vicinity this is our favourite. Its true, the site is opposite a business park and can hardly be described as rural but complaints and poor ratings purely based on noise are a bit unfair. Some may view proximity to this as a plus. I don't but c'est la vie. Its a large site with good sized level pitches and the staff are the best CC staff in the area. Occasionally the local boyracers shatter the silence but the general road noise is acceptable. Facilities are immaculate. It seems family friendly but fortunately we don't have to take our kids anymore so don't take my word for it. Dog friendly with good dog walking area. If you don't fancy KFC over the road the Sunny Garden chinese in Bognor was good value. If you want to throw something in the oven, Turner Pies is 5 minutes away. They supply Harrods and you can see why.
