Picked this site whilst on a tour of Kent and were pleasantly surprised and it turned out to be our favourite site, possibly helped by the best of the weather.

The greeting was efficient, if not particularly friendly and we were given a few different options as to where to pitch, we chose the furthest pitch in the quietest area and made the right choice, it was nice and quiet with plenty of space.

Facilities are as previously described, clean, a bit dated and there are only one for each sex.

Deal is a really nice town and we enjoyed Dover Castle and the walk along the White Cliffs from Dover to Deal.

If I was in the area I would stay here again, but feel I've got most out of the area for a few years at least.

We received a friendly welcome and check-in for the Caravan Club CL. We were given a site rules sheet and told we must not go near the fishing lakes without buying a permit. Fair enough we supposed, but the rules were a bit overdone. We were lucky enough to get one of the 4 CL EHUs (these cannot be booked if staying only 1 night) but they are all on one post in the corner of a large field. Fortunately we had an extension cable to allow us to pitch away from the other site users. We paid £16 and feel this was ok as it included use of a shower and toilet - there is only one though for each sex covering both the CL and adjoining commercial site. Dog walking had to be contained within the large (for a CL) site and the approach driveway. Recommended.

CL site used - Basic facilities and only one loo and shower in both male and female toilets for both the CL and adjacent large public site.

Handy for Sandwich and Deal both lovely towns.

Not fishing so can't comment on that.

EHU in corner of CL field means a bit squashed up if 5 on site at once so positioning of unit important if you want your privacy.

Very close is the Fowlmead park with long Tarmac cycle track and several off road sections, very good with bikes for hire if you don't take your own.

SWMBO loved the lack of traffic there.

Good bike ride from Deal to Sandwich too.

If you enjoy fishing then this is an ideal site. Fishing is very good here and there is a tackle shop on site. The site is quiet and secure with a token operated barrier. There is a small bar and café on site. There is a separate male and female shower and toilets, they are basic but clean. The showers are not on a timer and are included in the pitch price. They are hot and have good water pressure. The pitches are reasonably priced and are spacious. The site never seems to be overcrowded. A cycle park is next to the site and dogs can be walked there but have to be kept on a lead. The town of Deal is a short drive away. We love this site and have stayed here in a tent and a caravan.

I stayed here with my partner from Friday to Sunday, and it was a nice little site.


The staff were really friendly and helpful. They allowed us to arrive at any time in the morning, and as there was no one booked to take over our pitch we could stay as late as we wanted on the final day.

The facilities were kept clean, and the women's shower was the best I've ever had at a campsite.

The price was really fair.

If, like me, you're interested in history, both Walmer and Deal Castles are under 10 mins away, with lots of other attractions close by.


The toilets were closed from 10:30-11:30 am, which was really irritating as that's the time we usually shower after having breakfast. Other sites seem to do this early in the morning so it doesn't affect people. Also, there was no freezer available.

The fishing lakes are very popular, and the camp site is right at the entry so we had people driving past us all day, and the place wasn't particularly quiet.

Overall, I enjoyed my stay, and as my partner fishes he really enjoyed himself, so we would go back. However, bear in mind that it is a fishing destination first and a campsite second.

Reviewer: ThePeckhamites 1 review from this member

Very nice site - friendly staff and not expensive considering it's location. Toilets basic but perfectly adequate. A pity though, that if you're not fishing, you're not allowed to walk or cycle anywhere off the camping field and near any of the 7 or so fishing lakes. I know that's a shame, as I did cycle round for 10 minutes before I was informed of the rule! It's absolutely beautiful in the crisp October sunlight, but all out of bounds, and nothing at all else to do on the site. It's also a shame the staff didn't point out the extensive Foulmead country park next door. We found it anyhow, and had a fab 3 hours mountainbiking and walking around the extensive reclaimed pit.
