Beautiful camping nearby the town of Wick. The city centre is just a 15 minute scenic walk from the camping, leaving at the gate at the backside of the camping. The Asda supermarket is just a 10 minute walk from the front side of the camping.

The camping is reached by crossing a very low bridge. People with high vehicles, such as caravans, can call the warden and he'll show you an alternative route.

The reception is not always occupied, but the warden is easily called by ringing a bell. Next to the reception is an information desk with many leaflets on what to do in the neighbourhood. You can also borrow books here. Telephone on the site.

We could pitch our tent anywhere we liked on the tentfield. There are a couple of trees and bushes to pitch in the shade.

The toilets were in the middle of the camping. The cubicles were very small. As the doors turned inwards, you have to stand in the very tiny space between the toilet and the wall.

There was a separate sink for handwashing: there were some extra sinks for brushing your tooth, washing your face etcetera.

The showers were free, but there was a curtain instead of a door. You weren't allowed to enter the shower with shoes.

Outside, but under a roof, were 3 sinks for dishes.

Spent three days there beautiful site only let down by the width 0f the toilet cubicles far to narrow had to squeeze in and out and the position of the toilet paper dispensers did not help and sadly closed for a hour and a half each day for cleaning.

It was a short walk to the shops and pubs along by the river that was beautiful.

The wardens where very friendly and helpful.

Had a brilliant stay here, loved it! We have a large Motorhome and the owner came and met us at the local Tesco and escorted us down a river road into the site. There is a sign on the other entrance asking you to telephone if you are a larger vehicle so do not attempt to go under the bridge!

Such a friendly site and beautifully looked after. Key pad entry to toilet/showers and always found them to be very clean and tidy indeed!

Pitches are large and level and plenty of room between.

You will not be disappointed with this one and we will definitely return.

Had an enforced stop in Wick due to my wife becoming seriously ill whilst we were touring the Highlands in our motorhome. My wife was admitted to Cathness General Hospital for 9 days and had wonderful care. The campsite was ideal for me and was within a 10 minute walk to the hospital along the side of the river. The site owners were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. They keep the site so clean and tidy and the facilities were spotless. Wick has everything you need and there is even a large CO-OP store nearby. It was such a pity that my wife couldn't enjoy this lovely campsite, but now she is recovering we will certainly visit again once she is well enough for us to continue our holiday to this beautiful area. My thanks again to the owners for looking after me, and to all the friendly people of Wick and the brilliant staff of the Highlands NHS. Colin

Just back from one of my regular visits to the site in Wick. Once again Wick Caravan and Camping Site lived up to its normal high standards. As the sun was shining it made the stay all the more enjoyable!

I've noticed from a previous review that a visitor had difficulty accessing the site.

I access the site from the alternative road as my vehicle is in excess of nine metres long and had no problems. Whilst on the site I viewed an American RV which also used this road, without any issues.

The wardens' have always advised me to approach the alternative access road from the round about to get the correct angle, so I hope this review will ease any concerns. On most occasions the wardens' escort first time visitors along the alternative access route. If in doubt phone them, they're a lovely bunch!

I can't wait for my next visit and keeping my fingers crossed the weather is still good!

We had a warm welcome to this site.

The site shop is small with just a few basics (it was September though so near the end of the season for him) but wick is only a 5 minute walk or so.

The site is quite large, well laid out & secluded.

The facilities, keycode entry system, are dated & the cubicles small but all clean & plenty of them.

There is a river just outside the site so we did suffer a midge attack the next morning.

We only stayed a night as we were touring but all in all this is not a bad site at all & for £10 per night for a six man tent, two adults & two dogs itís a bargain we think!

Would return.
