Not impressed with the hard standing all are on a slope, the awning would not fit properly could not peg down close to the caravan, to close to a kerb, trees above made the roof a mess with sap. First time had to use four jack pads on front legs to level up, The staff are very good, customers are looked after, Fishing was very poor the fortnight we were there, The new owners are trying to get it right and are working at it, the shop is basic and expensive but will get you by, Two supermarkets in town, Asda and Tesco, Would I go back again (NO) My final gripe is that people with televisions/radios in awnings/tents should realize that the volume they listen at can be heard six and a half meters away at the same volume, As the seasonal one next to us did, I think the site will get better but will take a while, overall the site is worth going to, but not for us, You can only try it and form your own view, One last thing to the site, you need to fence in the water outlets on the banks as someone slipped and the water butt hit my friends awning and would have hit the child sleeping in there, lucky shes was not there, The fortnight we were there no attempt was made to rectify this DANGER. After it was reported.

First visit to this site with five adults and four children aged between 2 and 9 years old. We were pitched in the bluebell field which is adjacent to the children's play area. The pitch was a little sloped but drained well as a result on the one day we had torrential rain. The playground was handy for us and good for all the kids that were with us. The toilet/shower/pan wash facilities were very near and always clean. Could get busy but never had to wait too long for a free shower cubicle. My only criticism is that some of the showers were a bit weedy in terms of flow, and some of the female members of the group reported that the motion activated lights were faulty in their shower block, plunging them into darkness mid-shower! To be fair though the site owners knew about it and put signs up mid week warning about it. The temperature of the showers tended to fluctuate sometimes to very hot - something to be mindful of if you have young children with you. The outdoor pool was great although the biting insects that happened to be lurking around the pool on the day we went were less than welcome - quite a few horseflies at the site to be honest but that might down to the time of year, sunny weather and the nearby fishing lakes. The staff were all great at the site and the shop was well stocked and reasonably priced. The animal feeding time was a nice touch as was the evening film for the kids in the play barn. There is also a decent room for other kids to hang out and free wifi for those that can't tear themselves away from Facebook for a few days! Site is well placed with a supermarket within five miles and some great attractions and lovely beaches nearby. Would definitely go again and recommend it to others

Friendly and informative welcome, pitched up on block paved hardstanding with grass side, picture perfect view. 2 shower blocks which could do with a major revamp to bring them to a standard the campsite deserves, also hot water and toilet roll issues, shop selling all food requirements, facilities for children looked very good to keep them entertained, on site hot food outlet selling a wide variety at good prices. Entrance and exit roads have large road humps which throw a tourer about a bit even going slow (my opinion not required- go slow signs would be enough), fishing is excellent and out of the way of playing children. Situation is good to use as a base to visit other places. All supermarkets to be found in st austell 3 miles away. Took advantage of the 6 for 7 night deal in mid season and the holiday proved to be a steal. The weather was very hot which was the icing on the cake for us. We try to visit different sites but when we return to cornwall it will be hard not to book back onto this site

I could sit here all day trying to write something negative about this site but still wouldn't manage it. As campers who normally go to small basic sites we were a bit worried but there was absolutely no need, the pitches were a very good size the facilities were very good and always spotless and even though the site was busy when we were there we never once waited for a shower. The staff were always friendly and helpful and if we were ever visiting this part of Cornwall again would certainly return to this site.

Just returned from a fantastic holiday at Meadow Lakes.

We stayed in the family sized camping pod. Having stayed in standard pods in the past we loved having a bit of extra space.

We really loved this site. It was very family orientated but also had a lovely quiet, relaxing, outdoorsy feel!

There were two play areas. A large one on the bottom field and a smaller climbing frame and swings on the top field near the pods. Our children played here every night and met lots of new friends.

The swimming pool was a real bonus. We had a swim late afternoon most days and never found it to be too busy.

The shop was fantastic, stocking everything you could possibly need. They also had lovely croissants, hot sausage rolls and pasties which was perfect when we couldn't be bothered cooking.

There was also a little catering trailer there most nights selling takeaway food. They had a fantastic range of gourmet burgers (everything from aberdeen angus to kangaroo!) Plus pizzas, fish and chips etc.

There were three toilet/shower blocks. They were very clean and in the brown block there was a row of around 5 individual shower rooms and 2 bathrooms with a shower or bath, toilet and basin. We never found them to be too busy. The only downside we found was that the pods were at the top of a hill, a bit of walk to the facilities. Probably exaggerated as we have two young children and wouldn't be an issue in a tent or tourer as there were loads of pitches nearby.

All in all a fantastic holiday. Lots to do in the surrounding area. Lovely beaches, villages and plenty for kids. We would definitely return to Meadow Lakes.

We arrived after a very long journey and the site was a welcome sight.

The bluebell field (non electric)was an excellent size all be it a bit slopey we got a great pitch and could see the excellent childs play area from all areas of this field.

The swimming pool, animals enclosures, play areas and barn were excellent well kept facilities.

The shop was well stock with everything you could possible need, forgot or run out of.

The reception staff were very helpful and friendly

The changing areas and toilet and shower blocks were abundant and exceptionally clean ( could do with wooden mats though as floors did get quite wet after a shower).

The games room and wifi lounge were also an added bonus, unfortunately couldn't get wifi to work at all but just made me put away my technology for a while. Was a bit peeved I couldn't freeze my own ice blocks and had to rent the sites ice blocks even though it said in the welcome pack I could freeze my own.

Also we loved the fishinglakes but couldn't be bothered to go to the post office to buy a permit. It also said permits were available from reception which they weren't.

Our dog loved the site and our children had a ball and made lots of friends - would def recommend over any other st austell / mevagissey sites
