 This site is literally 10 mins walk from city centre within Sophia Gardens next to Glamorgan Cricket Ground. We booked as we were going to see Simple Minds in concert.

The site itself, I have to admit, was winter tired and desperately needs spring to arrive and the rain to stop as the ground even hard standing was mucky, wet and in need of some tlc. Narrow pitches meant having to walk through a quagmire for ehu and water as they were situated on the grass areas.

The site has shared access to Cosy Cinema and Pedal Power and with this in mind, I didn't feel entirely comfortable with the security as to be honest, it it completely accessible to all. Not sure either that the 6 metre rule between units is adhered to on this site, units were closer to each other than that, maybe 3 or 4 metres.

35 per night, is that usual for a city campsite? I'm now sat on a site in the middle of the Cheshire countryside with state of the art bathroom facilities, a fully accessible motorhome service point, free WiFi and glorious views, huge pitches, 23 per night. The Cardiff Caravan site served a purpose but with hindsight, I'd probably find a site a little out of Cardiff city centre and commute in for tourist stuff.

 Fantastic location, 15 minute walk to city centre.

Staff at reception were really friendly and helpful.

Facilities are all kept very clean.

The site has everything you could need for a few days away.

Will definitely visit again.

 Pleasant staff, convenient location to Cardiff city, good for cyclists and dog walkers.

The pitches too close to each other, site and facilities look in need of updating, telephone signal poor.

Seems expensive at 35 a night.

 Ideally located to explore Cardiff City Centre, yes surrounded by greenery, Sophia Gardens and the leafy suburbs of Pontcanna with it's great bars and even greater restaurants.

The site itself is well maintained and has a clean toilet and shower block.

Reviewer: Pault8 1 review from this member

 What's not to like? A site close to both the cricket and rugby and within walking distance of the City Centre.

We had a grass pitch, with electric, well sheltered from the weather midway between the latrine blocks, a parking place off road next to the tent and ample parkland close by for youngsters or others to play.

Shower blocks were basic but cleaned regularly and had hot water, loo paper and plugs for the sinks.

My only gripe, if it is one, do they have a noise policy as for 4 of the 7 nights had neighbours who wouldn't keep the noise down after 11pm.

But hey, if that's my only moan.

 What a great site, brilliant location 15 minuets walk and your in the middle of the city.

Only used the car twice to go to the supermarket.

Try The Cricketers pub just round the corner nice beer garden.

Quiet at night staff were friendly and helpful.

Only thing I could find wrong was the showers and wash ups needed updating.

Will definitely use this site again

 A small site located in the grounds of a lovely park by the side of the River Taff in the centre of Cardiff. For access it is best to follow the directions given by the campsite. There are separate entrance and exits gates and you have to drive past the exit to get to the entrance. The entrance itself is tight and bending so any large outfit or double axle caravans in our view would struggle. To this end there were not any on site. The campsite is owned and run by Cardiff City Council and is open all year.

We booked a hardstanding pitch which had its own water tap and 16 amp electricity but there are also non-electric pitches and soft standing pitches.

Easy access to Cardiff City Centre which was about a 15 minute walk. Also on the other side of the site is the Pontcanna area which had some very nice cafes and coffee shops. There are also several pubs and restaurants within walking distance. This is a great site to visit Cardiff's many attractions and we also took the Water Bus to Mermaid Quay which is worth a visit.

There are two facilities blocks which although dated were kept very clean. There are not many showers so those of you who use these facilities may have to queue when the site is full. Also on site is a bike hire shop to which is attached a cafe. Further there is Cosy Cinema, these are pods you can hire to watch films.

Because of the park setting, the cycle hire and the Cosy Cinema the campsite is open to members of the general public so Reception staff warn you to keep valuables out of sight and lock up your bike. No problems when we were there despite it being very busy.

The staff here were very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed our stay at Cardiff Caravan Park and would happily go there again when in the area.

 Very nice site within easy reach of city centre along a lovely path by the river (around a mile).

Friendly, helpful site staff and good facilities.

Tent area not particularly big but think camping in a minority these days.
