This is a lovely clean site with really helpful staff. One of the wardens is an ex chef, and he makes and sells great curries and pizzas etc. The site is quiet but we could hear road noise, especially motorbikes.

The showers and facilities are kept very clean.

Their is no tv signal, but they rent out sky boxes and leads so you can watch tv.

Great area for walking or trudging, I wouldn't take kids here as there is nothing for them.

A group of about 12 teens turned up with their teachers, they were quiet, but maybe the teachers should tell them to read stuff :)

Door clearly marked laundry, huge notice over the sink 'No Dishwashing' what were they doing? Yep, washing up. I sent them to the other door marked 'dishwashing' another couple were trying to wash up at the fresh water tap. Another boy was fascinated by the elsan point and spent ages with the hose flushing it. Bet he didn't realise what it was. LOL.

Overall a nice site, but not for kids.

Couldn't have been more welcoming - backpacking on the Pennine Way, we turned up without booking, got a flat pitch with immaculate toilet block and free hot showers. We were also offered the use of a socket to charge our phones.

The (new?) manager is a former chef and offers home made pizzas (the dough smelled good whilst proving) and curries - a fairly mild but very flavourful Chicken Jalfrezi with rice and naan for 6. Well worth it, and far nicer than our fallback of trangia cooking. We didn't even need to go to the hut to get the curry - he delivered it to our tents! That level of pricing extended to the camp shop too.

Just back from our first visit to Crowden. We've been to many campsites and this is now definitely one of our top few. We felt well looked after, superb facilities- great care and attention clearly given. A nice sized site with relaxed and respectful atmosphere. The rope swing in the woods was a huge hit with the children. And the choice of walks on the doorstep was a huge hit with me. We'll definitely be back as soon as possible. The wardens are doing a brilliant job.

Spent a week here as a base for walking and going to a concert in Manchester. Excellent place for walking and exploring in the hills. There is a good disused railway track for walking or cycling. Being a railway track there aren't many hills on it! Once on the track you can walk to Hadfield where there are shops, a bakery and tea rooms for refreshment before walking back. The other way takes you to the entrance of a disused tunnel, there is a board there with its history.

It was quite wet when we visited so grass was a bit muddy but that is only to be expected at that time of year. The facilities were despite this, kept immaculate. Knowledgeable, helpful and friendly wardens.

Lovely site.

I think I paid 9. 45 for one person backpacking. Cheaper than booking through main CCC website.

Lovely facilities. Flat site.

On Pennine Way but off main path and away from elements.

Staff were lovely.

This is a great campsite to use when walking the Pennine Way. After a long walk on the first leg this campsite was perfect, it had great facilities and was very clean and quiet. The shop on site also makes food so you can order a meal and there is a drying room and tumble dryer which we needed as the weather was atrocious and we had cold, wet and hungry teenagers. Very friendly staff and because this site was so good we have become members of the caravan and camping club as seeing their logo now means an assurance of a good camping experience. Thanks again to all at the Crowden campsite.

Fantastic camp site. We were greeted with a menu of hot food and hot showers. With breakfast baps available in the morning who could ask for more. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Like most of the Camping and Caravanning Club sites it was a very well managed site; however Crowden does it with a relaxed style that I hadn't experienced at their other sites. Definitely would return.

This site has had new managers this year after last years abissmal episode with a manager who thought

She was too good for the site. Looking forward the new mamnager has made a fantastic improvement. I go to this site every other week and can say the walks are tremendous being on the Pennine Way. The toilets are old but very clean, and may be due for upgrading. The shops will need transport to get to and various good eating pubs will also. Just got back but looking forward to returning week after next.

I would like to add there is a well stocked shop on site as well as a very good food menue, pizza's, burgers, and curries are popular as well as all day breakfasts all at good prices.

You will not get a warmer welcome at any other site.

Well done to Steve, Paula, and Richard.

This is a lovely little club site that has recently come under new management. They've put a lot of effort into renovating the site and you can really tell.

The toilets and showers are immaculate and the shop is well stocked. It's a great place to stop for Pennine Wayfarers (they really look after walkers and backpackers here) and also a perfect base for exploring the Peak District National Park.

I'll definitely go back the next time I'm in the area!

What a fabulous site!

The grounds and facilities are beautifully presented and maintained. The site staff are friendly, relaxed and meticulous.

The site is level, the pitches and hard standings are generous size.

Pizzas that were cooked on site, were good, made & delivered by Steve-the warden himself.

We walked to Tintwhistle for a pint, by the side of the reservoirs. It was an easy but, rather lengthy walk fand took us around an hour and a quarter. The Bulls Head is a friendly pub, but not really worthy of the hike. Didn't seem geared up for food, but may be wrong. It welcomes dogs and is very relaxed. We got a taxi back to the site, which cost 10 including the dogs.

The walking is simply fantastic from this site, straight onto the Pennine Way within yards.

Spring sunshine made our stay all the better.

Paid 19:10 for motorhome, 2 adults ( club members), 2 dogs and electricity.
