As the credit crunch bites tighter people are looking for cheaper holiday alternatives Gone for now are the days of the package tour, so staying in the UK and using campsites is certainly a good start. They tend to be low cost, which is great for the wallet, and most are child safe too.

There are a wide range of alternatives available, from luxury UK campsites with swimming pools, to more basic (but cheaper) alternatives. Campsite usually cater for three types of camper, those who prefer the comfort of a static caravan, where you just turn up and cater for yourself, and leave at the end of the week, those who have their own campervan or caravan just looking for a nice place to stay, and if possible have access to an electrical hook-up, and those who prefer to camp in tents, where electrics are an option, but most prefer just the basics.

Where To Start Looking For A Campsite

When trying to find a campsite decide on the things that you need most for your family, whether it is the child friendly aspect so you feel confident that the children won't come to any harm, the location, maybe being close to the sea is important so you can walk to the beach, or whether you need to be able to take your pets, and dog friendly is a crucial aspect.

Once you have decided what features you need in a good campsite, why not try using the Internet, and a search engine, simply putting in "campsites caravan sites", or narrowing the search by using region, town or postcode, this is almost guaranteed to bring up one of the numerous campsite finder websites as well as smaller places that do their own advertising.

Many of the campsite finder websites have excellent search criteria and you can change many aspects of your search to help you find the best campsite for you and your family, including searching by price, which is always important, as well as being able to search by some of the key facilities that you have already decided are important.

If you are planning on camping a lot, it could well be worth investing in a caravan and camping club membership.

As well as receiving a monthly magazine, you will be sent an annual campsite guide, which rates many sites across the UK and provides information about each one, shows the facilities on offer, plus there are normally fee discounts on offer for those with membership cards, so it could be well worth joining.
