 Having been born and still having family in Bristol, have tried several times to get a booking at this site. Managed it for last November only to be thwarted due to lockdowns.

So was really looking forward to this visit. I'm not sure I can add much to the reviews of this site, safe to say the location is brilliant.

Being next to the floating harbour for walks, within walking distance of countless pubs and restaurants, so many sights to see and the MH does not have to move.

I doubt I will be able to get another booking here due to other commitments, just so glad I finally made it, well worth it!

 We managed to get in again, following the latest council reprieve.

It's the first time we managed to get a pitch on the 'front row' overlooking the harbour and enjoyed uninterrupted views.

The weather was glorious and we couldn't believe the amount of people just over the hedge enjoying themselves. There were parties, barbecues, sing songs, as well as the youngsters having sailing lessons, so it was far from quiet, but just lovely to see people relaxing.

We had two great cycle rides from the site; one to Clevedon and one to Portishead;

Both used mostly quiet tracks and lanes.

It's going to be a big loss to us when the site finally closes.

 A brilliant city centre but secluded wooded campsite.

Open a secret door and you are straight onto the quiet end of the harbourside just few minutes walk to a pub, SS GB 🇬🇧 and the busy commercial area.

We will be so sorry when this site closes for redevelopment. Luckily we manage to get a booking when the lease was extended but it must close soon, depending on the roadworks outside the main gate.

 Amazing location, directly on the waterside with a beautiful quayside walk into city centre.

Close to a great range of pubs/bars/cafes and restaurants.

Immaculately maintained site.

 I was pleasantly surprised to get in for the one nights when Tredegar park was in lockdown.

This was our fifth visit and it was a great as ever and we took advantage of the wonderful walk around the floating harbour via the back gate.

Each time we think it's our final visit due to the council's decisions, we are always delighted to find they've given it a reprieve and let's hope it stays that way.

 This campsite will wow you simply because of its great location. You arrive through the usual barrier type approach, reception hut on your left.

The site has a feel of an Aire, gravel car park location, all service facilities, toilet, shower, washing up area, motorhome service point.

Park up and take your key for the gate on the opposite side from the entrance because that is where the magic lies, it is a gateway to harbour side, Baltic Wharf. Boats are there, paddle boarders, pubs, coffee shops, groups of people dot the waterside setting up their deck chairs. From here you can walk into Bristol City, water taxi a short cut to the other side, admire the colourful houses that speckle the rise from the water to city parks.

You can glimpse the Clifton Suspension and you can feel the city vibes, diners populate the bars as you walk the marina. There is history, culture and art in abundance in this vibrant city, easy to walk, the Cutty Sark, Banksy, a narrow boat community, city shopping and museums.

The site is a perfect place to pitch up if you want a city break.

 Unexpected peace in the city of Bristol. A secret doorway takes you from the camp site straight onto the quiet part of the Harbourside, but only a short walk from the SSGt. Britain.

Site is spotlessly clean and the facilities are well managed and CV19 compliant.

 The site itself could do with a little updating as there are no fully serviced pitches, or child play facilities and pitches are a little too close to each other.

The shop carries some very basic supplies and toilets are provided via porta-kabins but are modern and more than serviceable. The site is a 5 minute drive from Bath centre and around 30 minutes to Bristol.

However there are two local riverside pub/restaurants (The Locksbrook Inn & The Boathouse Inn) that are around a 15 minute and 4 minute walk from the site and they provided excellent atmosphere and food and I recommend them highly.

There is an excellent cycle path and a local Lidl for all your shopping needs. We'd definitely use the site again.

 Despite Storm Ciara and the road collapse outside the site, we made it!

There were quite a few folk that didn't though, so the site was nice and quiet for a couple of nights 'til the storm died down.

The torrential rain created quite a few large puddles on the site but they drained fairly rapidly.

As ever, the wardens kept the site pristine and should be congratulated, given the conditions.

We had a few good walks whilst there including the steep hill past the colourful houses in Cliftonwood, that can be seen from the site across the floating harbour.

During one heavy shower, we discovered Bar Chocolate in Clifton Village and dashed in for hot drinks. Once inside we decided upon an early lunch and were served delicious fresh food.

The newly created "Cargo" area near to M Shed is a lovely addition with attractive cafes and shops in the small units that appear to have been created from shipping containers.

We had evening meals in the Nova Scotia pub, which is a real traditional pub with associated fare at great prices; The Cottage Inn, which we thought was grossly overpriced and also the Stable Bar near the free terminal at the city centre. Their food and drink were great, but it's more of a younger element that frequent it, with noisy music in the background - but very friendly staff and a huge selection of (strong!) ciders.

No doubt this will be our last visit to Baltic Wharf, given the council's plans to build houses and apartments on it. We've enjoyed our half-dozen or so visits and will miss it greatly.

If you manage to find a couple of nights cancellations, I urge you to give it a go.

 Ideal site to explore Bristol city centre. Ferry is cheap and frequently run.

Site tidy, however the warden a bit unfriendly.

No dog run on site, but nice walks nearby.
