Description

Pitches: 90

Opening Dates this year:  29/04/2024 to 31/10/2024

This site has just recently been taken over by Wick Development Trust as a community enterprise, with all profits being reinvested back into the campsite to improve the facilities or into local community projects to help the regeneration and economic growth of the town, and to improve local facilities for the local inhabitants and for visitors alike.

As you will see from previous reviews about the site, it was very well run by the previous tennants, so we have some pretty big shoes to fill, but as a community organisation it is our highest priority to give our guests the best possible experience so they will come back again or tell their friends about this wonderful campsite.

This Site over looks Wick River and is a very quiet, secluded, picturesque Site and as it is surrounded by trees, it is probably one of the most sheltered Sites in Caithness.

This Touring Park is licenced for 90 pitches, of which 15 are hard standings and the rest is level grass area. There are 42 electric hook ups.

We can provide electric hook up points and drinking water. There are two grey waste disposal points, one of which is drive over.

If your vehicle is higher than 2.89m please contact us for information relating to the alternative access route which allows access for high sided vehicles.

Dogs are also welcome but must be kept on a lead at all times.

There is no playpark on site but there is one right next to the campsite, as well as some wonderful riverside trails which are magnificent for taking a walk, going for a cyce with the family, or exercising your dog.

This Site is a pleasant ten minute walk away from the town centre where there are various shops, restaurants and food take away facilities. The indoor Swimming Pool, local heritage centre, harbour and the Pulteney Distillery are all nearby, as well as an outdoor tidal swimming baths for those brave enough to test their stamina in the freezing waters of the North Sea!. There is an 18 hole golf course and 3 miles of beautiful sandy beach within the vicinity. If wildlife is your thing then there is an abundance of things to see along our coastline from Puffins and seals to Killer Whales. This Site is also very popular with people who wish to go fishing on our local river or lochs.
