An excellent Camping Club site. Good clean modern facilities, spacious pitches (some grass, some hardstanding). The WiFi worked very well all over the site, at £2 for 24 hrs or £10 for a week. Wardens extremely helpful, especially Paul.

Dunbar is a good walk or short cycle ride away, or you can park free at the swimming baths near the harbour and High Street. Nice to see a range of individual shops along the High St. If you need a supermarket, there is a large Asda, with cheap fuel, a couple of miles away on the A1.

Very much enjoyed a short stay and intend to return for longer.

Stayed here for 2 weeks in August together with group of families and lots of kids. It's a fantastic site with a high quality playground and was thoroughly enjoyed by all the family.

It's a spacious site and we never felt crowded.

There are quite a lot of rules but that's typical for a CCC site and the rules are there for a purpose. (Rules also help prevent the type of campers who aren't interested in rules).

As noted in the other reviews, it's a windy site but that's the price to pay for a magnificent view of the sea. We actually had to pitch our tent on the day that (the tailwinds) of Hurricane Bertha were passing over the UK and we therefore needed lots of help pitching our tent, and got it up at the second attempt with the help of the legendary Schleiders and Bambergers.

There's lots to do in the area - I'll list a few:

North Berwick Law and Air Museum.

St Abbs Head - clifftop walk

Pease Bay and Cove

John Muir Country Park - you can then walk from there to the campsite

Lammermuir Hills - Lammer Law

Edinburgh and attractions - incl the Fringe during Aug

Pressmenan Woods

Trapain Law - has a picnic spot

Blairdrummon Safari and zoo - 1. 25 hours drive but well worth it if you get there early enough.

Will no doubt be returning at some point.

We hve visited before but got quite a surprise at the new play park that has been built. It never had one until this year. There is also a large, fenced in grassy area for children to play very safely.

There is a dog walk with a great view and a ball games pitch.

The pitches are really large. Both the hard standing and the grass.

Staff were cheerful and friendly.

The shower block is well kept inside the building as well as outside with flowers in pots and patches.

Even the chemical disposal was spotlessly clean.

This site is now one of my favourites due to it now feeling welcoming to families.

A sea view from every pitch just adds yet another positive.

Lovely site, with great sea views. Staff friendly and welcoming, showed us to our pitch. All facilities clean and tidy. Great motorhome service area, although water points on site can be a bit of a trek depending on where you are pitched. Nice walk along the coast into Dunbar, about an hour and half. Most of it along side the golf course so dogs must be on leads for most of the way. Dunbar itself is not that exciting, but a drive to North Berwick is a must, lovely beach and seabird centre and a high street with some lovely independent shops and nice cafés.

We went to this site to do some walking on the john muir way. And planned to walk down to cockburnspath. Cracking site well kept with nice clean toilets etc. Didn't use the site shop but it had the usual basics. Bit windy when we were there but it's on a hill by the sea so probably not a surprise. Planning to return in a few weeks to do some more walking. Would recommend the site to anyone!

An open and spacious site overlooking the sea and the small harbour town of Dunbar.

We arrived at just after 8pm on a Friday. The site was easy to find off the A1. Reception was closed but staff were on hand to take us to our pitch. Friendly and helpful with advice etc.

Pitch was on one of the lower slopes looking out to the sea. Site was busy as expected in peak season. Mostly motor homes and touring vans.

Rock pegs absolutely essential. Hard work pitching nevertheless.

Toilets and showers clean and fairly modern. Ample water and waste points about the site. Pitches well separated and lots of grassy spaces around. Two dog walking areas. Site is enclosed but still advisable to stay on leads.

Beach is 15 minutes walk from the site. Quite attractive but there are better ones a short drive away eg pease bay and belhaven bay.

Dunbar is 10 minutes by car. There is an asda just outside of town, which also has a petrol station. In town there are a number of eateries including Chinese, Indian, Turkish Kebabs, Italian, and Fish and Chips, as well as Coop, bakery, hardware shop, post office, banks and ATMs etc

Some people have commented on the cement works. From most parts of the site you don't see it. Only the higher ridge pitches have views to the Cement Works, and even then its almost a mile away. Noise from the A1 and railway line is minimal, only hearing them faintly during the night.

We camped in calm weather. I imagine the cold easterly winds could be problematic when they blow up because there's little shelter on site.

All in all a nicely placed site that is spacious and close to good facilities.
