 Lovely location. Very easy to find.

Harry very nice Warden.

Plenty to do or just chill out.

Am returning to do some Watersport activity and karting.

Gnats around the lake early evening took delight at biting us.

 Reasonably priced, atmospheric site with big skies.

Nice and quiet (even with the kart track next door) and a friendly, chilled vibe.

A flat, well-kept camping field with clean facilities.

Dungeness beach is around 30-40 mins pleasant walk, Lydd is a short distance away.

Small shop on site selling some basic items.

Great value camping. Will visit again.

 Lovely little campsite with friendly helpful staff.

Has good facilities with a useful little shop selling a lot of what you might need.

Great entertainment nearby with water park, go karts and beaches.

Would use again

 Stayed here for one night, on a bike packing trip along South Coast. Wasn't quite sure what to expect as it didn't sound that inspiring being next to go Kart track.

The reality was it was absolutely perfect for our short stay. Harry who was on duty could not have been more friendly and helpful, directing us to a large flat pitch.

As others have said the camping area is basically a large flat field, but its well maintained, toilets and showers are good, with plenty of hot water and there is a very handy area (based in an old container) for doing washing up, again with hot water and a fridge/freezer.

The reception area also boasts a small shop with essentials, including chilled wine !

One great plus for cycle tourers is that the site offers a backpacking rate, so unlike many sites now you are not paying the same as somebody who rocks up in a motor home or with a tent the size of Buckingham Palace. Go Kart noise wasn't an issue for us as we weren't staying during the day.

It was a bit windy and cold when we stayed, but think that is as much to do with the time of year as the location, but I guess being almost on the coast, it's always going to be a bit windier and cooler than inland.

Certainly if you are looking for a one night stay while cycle touring this is the place to stay.

Lydd is a quick bike ride away, there was a great Fish and Chip shop there and a couple of convenience stores.

 Very nice flat, level site. Excellent showers and toilets, but as there are only 2 cubicles and showers I can see they might they could be very busy when the site is full.

Pleasant walk round the adjacent lake and lots to see and do in the area.

Beware the Go Kart track next door, this could make it very noisy at weekends, but we were there midweek and all was quiet.

The staff are friendly and helpful.

All in all a good choice.

 It was a relaxed friendly site, just a flat field really with big skies and well placed for Dungeness and great for bird watchers. Facilities were very clean, hot water in the showers and good soap and paper towels etc. Covered washing up, again hot water, wifi available near reception.

To get there you drive through Lydd which is rather dull, then through its side streets onto the site. Not quite an industrial estate as some have said, but there is a great stone and gravel outlet, (check out their flints).

Then past a water park, water skiing, etc and past a Go Kart track onto the site. All around are beautiful flat marshlands, dotted with pylons from the power station, hundreds of sheep and many birds, quite atmospheric.

Much of the area is on an old wartime airfield and there are walks from the site to the beach, (about 40 minutes slow pace, 15 jogging) and over the other side to Dungeness, but you need an Ordnance survey map.

Fascinating signs go up when the army are practising guns! but I guess if there are sheep there you will be fine but you must stick to the public areas.

Dungeness is busy and if you fancy a good walk cut across the marshes, saves driving up to Lydd and around. Bikes would be good too.

The only downside, slight irritating buzz from the Go Karts and smelly turkey farm (battery turkeys) from a farm on the walk to the beach. Otherwise it's very quiet, no traffic noise.

 Excellent campsite, clean facilities,

Nev was really friendly and helpful.

Great location so if you don't like the noise from the go karts (if it's a race weekend) you can get away from it.

 A fairly flat grass site, with reasonable toilet/shower facilities. Small shop with a few essentials.

On the side of the site away from the hedges it can be quite windy. At least 30mins walk to bus stop a Lydd Camp, bus to New Romney and ride the train from Hythe to Dungeness.

Not a lot in Lydd but it was a Monday night.

 Friendly, clean, spacious, no frills camping. Plenty of hot water and free use of fridge/ freezer which was a real bonus.

Ideally located for Dungeness lighthouse, RSPB reserve and RH&D railway. Lake setting. Thoroughly enjoyed our 2 day hassle-free stay.

 The approach to this site past the Kart track and I have to say I was thinking about moving on in the morning because of the close proximity to the Kart track. For us we didn't notice noise from the Kart track, even though it was Easter and the track was busy.

Really friendly booking in gave us details of the local area and recommended restaurants.

We didn't need to self level as our pitch was flat, the pitch size was extremely generous and it really gave a feel of space.

We didn't use the camp fire option but plenty of campers did.

Ladies Toilets only 2 toilets for females and 2 showers, busy periods not enough, men's 3 toilets and one shower not enough, there were 2 family shower facilities ( didn't look in so can't comment).

Would we return, it's a surprise to say but yes we would, quiet, no light pollution, convenient for Rye, Hythe and the surrounding area, we have a scooter so really easy for to get around.
