Hi, I live not far from southport and there is a real lovely one (which we always say if we did not live so close we would like to try).  It is called Willow Bank, you have the sand dunes and the beach on your door step, Southport Town and Fair just 5 Mins down to road.  As I said we have never used it but it does look so lovely, clean.  There is another one in Banks which is a lot bigger.  Hope this helps.

As I said before Willowbank is a good one and the Southport one is good too. Do not go to leisurte lakes or the riverside. 

Hope all this helps. Let me know if anymore help is needed

Cheers Kathy

Hi Kathy

Willowbank is full so have booked at Abbey Farm (between Ormskirk and Burscough). A little further out but has good reviews.

Thanks for your help and recommendations.

We intend to try to fit in Red Squirrels/Red Arrows/Red faces on the sunny sand at Ainsdale and a little retail therapy for OH in town!!

Hi Kathy

We're thinking of coming to Southport for the first weekend in September and the site on the front sounds perfect for the Airshow.

Do you have the site name/contact please?

Much appreciated

John H

Hi all,

 

Just wanted to let you know that we arrived in Southport and went to the tourist information kiosk and they gave us a list of campsites and every single one was booked up, we couldnt get an answer from Riverside so we went down there and they were booked up too, but the really nice man in reception gave us a leaflet about another site a little further out and we went there and had a brilliant night (apart from a few wasps), so thanks to everyone for their help!!!

 

This is where we stayed: http://www.royalumpire.co.uk/

From all accounts avoid Leisure Lakes like the plague - unless it has undergone a great deal of improvement it's not nice.
Riverside has mixed reviews.  I've been there twice - first time was great, no problems.     The second time was at a meet - tents were treated like dirt from the moment we went to reception to check in.

Abbey Farm is lovely.    

Can't vouch for Willowbank - but it is meant to be very nice.


we were supposed to be going to leisure lakes for our weeks holiday - this thursday it starts, thought it would be perfect for all of us - the hubbys fishing and the kids, plenty to do - till we went and had a look the other day !!! OMG, No thank you, only a couple of touring places left with hookup, all the rest of the vans are permanently sited - and both the lakes are closed!!! IMHO IT needs to be upgraded -

It gets better every time you do it.
It makes every one feel better.
