Camping and Watersports

There is something extra special about camping by the river or choosing a lakeside campsite for your trip. The calming and scenic backdrop of the water makes for a relaxing holiday, while providing plenty of entertainment options too.

Whether you want somewhere quiet and secluded to immerse yourself in a good book or three, a scenic location to enjoy a boat trip, or something more energetic such as kayaking or rafting, you will find it all at a Camping and Caravanning Club waterside campsite.

We have 24 campsites alongside some of the most picturesque rivers, canals, lakes and lochs up and down the UK, so take a look below and find the perfect holiday for you. You will also find more useful information on the Club's dedicated Boating Group website.
