 Great few days, helped by the lovely weather. Staff were very friendly and helpful. As previously commented, the site and in particular the toilet block is very tired, but it is kept spotlessly clean.

Beautiful area, sand dunes are amazing. Easy walk into Formby where you can get the train into Liverpool or Southport

 What a lovely friendly site! Staff very helpful, facilities clean and well maintained, and very pleasant to walk through the statics and their lovely gardens - nice parrot too!

Site is well located for the dunes and beach, and the Lost Resort of Formby-by-the-Sea. Flora and fauna of the area amazing, in addition to the red squirrels listen for nightjars and inhale the scent of the balsam poplars!

Easy cycling into Formby for the pubs (enjoyed the Lifeboat and the Beer Station) and great shops, M&S, Waitrose and Charity.

Looking forward to visiting again!

 Had 4 nights at this site, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As previous reviewers have mentioned, the facilities are a bit dated, but everything works, so as they say. If it ain't broken why fix it? The site itself has more emphasis on the mobile home owners, which is fair enough because there are several fields of them!

Having said all that, the camper section is positioned in the best possible place to access the wonderful sand dunes being much closer to them than the mobiles. If you like walking, whether it be just for a few minutes, or for mile upon mile, you can't beat walking through the dunes, and along the fairly empty beach.

If like us, you prefer not to use your vehicle while you are away, there are one or two slight downsides though. The nearest pub/eating place is a mile and a half away, which isn't great if returning at night, and the nearest shop is roughly the same distance.

Also, apart from the local little run around bus, proper transport links to Southport and Liverpool are also a mile and a half away. Formby is a nondescript sort of place, despite the campsite raving about it. Full of charity shops, which says it all really.

The Mersey Rail day ticket for 5. 10 is fantastic value as you can go one way as far as The Wirral as we did (Port Sunlight) and to Southport in the other direction.

To sum up, the site is as advertised, and the area is outstanding so despite my moans I am happy to give the site (almost) full marks!

 Great location very close to the sea. Red squirrels on the campsite and in surrounding woodland. Staff helpful. Toilet facilities basic but clean.

Why do they have key locks on all the individual toilet and shower room doors? Also why the 20p showers and push down taps (a pain!). Pricey for one person 20 per night. The most I have paid per night in the three years I have been campervanning.

 Had a lovely weekend at this site, our first but won't be our last.

Booked in at reception which wasn't signposted but knew where to find it having read a previous review. The owner was really welcoming and friendly as were other campers. The facilities were clean and the site was tidy although the grass was parched due to lack of moisture.

The site is ideally placed for walking the dog. Entrance to the sand dunes just round the corner from the touring pitches, leading to the dog friendly beach. Also, a short walk through the site leads to a gate directly into the woods. Would definitely revisit this site if we were in the area again.

Reviewer: Eddiemac 1 review from this member

 We stayed for two nights in our little teardrop caravan and had an amazing pitch site, under the pine trees at the back of the site just yards away from the access path to the dunes. Such a quiet site, the staff were so friendly and helpful and the location near the beach and easy access to the squirrel reserve were just perfect for us.

Our kids are all grown up so holidays these days must be dog friendly and this was the best. Yes - like other reviews the site is a bit dated with 20p coin operated showers, no recycling bins, no camp shop to buy basics and no kitchen was up facilities. But the positives far out weighed these by a mile and in a way the old fashioned facilities were pretty quaint.

The staff friendliness shows that this is a well looked after site by people who care. We will definitely come here again especially if we can book up the same prime spot again. !

 Visited the site for our annual stay for the fifth year running.

The location is fantastic, . Various routes through the dunes to the beach, the easiest route is through the wooden gate and across Lifeboat road car park, and to the wooden walkway to the the old lifeboat station.

The site is quaint, dated but well maintained. Toilet/shower block is okay. Tourers can either pitch under the trees on grass or hard standing at the end of the site. Lots of static caravans.

Site is very quiet and peaceful. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Formby is a lovely village, lots of shops, restaurants and supermarkets.

Crosby beach and Antony Gormleys ANOTHER PLACE is a must and free parking too. Depending on the tides you can see lots of the Standing men.

Southport is also a short drive away and a good day out.

Will return once again.

 Just had 2 nights at this campsite with a small motorhome. The campsite itself is ideally located, very close to the excellent Formby Point Beach and local entire reserve. As others have said the site itself is somewhat dated, soakaway for grey water and the shower block shows its age somewhat. However the staff are friendly and helpful and the whole site is very clean especially the shower block. The static caravan area us obviously well loved by the residents, lots of flowers and plants. It is also quiet, perhaps not a great deal to do for young children but the beach is not far. The shower block is accessed through a key provided with a deposit. Seems somewhat odd but I presume done as a response to unauthorised access at times. My only gripe would be there are no recycling facilities and for me in this age there probably should be.

 Just back again from a short break at Formby point. Really enjoyed the time we spent there. Toilet and showers are a bit old fashioned but work well and are clean. The lady on reception is lovely, warm and helpful, your made to feel welcome straight away. Great walk into Formby and lovely beach. Quiet site but just what we wanted. We will be back.

 We used this site as a one night stopover before boarding Belfast ferry the next morning. As such the location was ideal for our needs. The site is rather old and tired, and facilities minimal, but we picked a lovely pitch under the trees and were able to make a swift exit to continue our journey. Staff very friendly and OK to just let us get on with it really. No on-line booking or email, no deposit required. Phone and book, pay cash on arrival, no nonsense. Good value.
