    Please could I get advice on the most useful caravan site "clubs" to belong to?

    And do they provide members with a book of sites, where they are, facilities, etc?

    I know of the Caravan and Camping Club and I think there is another one but I can't remember its name. Is it worth belonging to more than one? And which are the other clubs which I don't know about please?

    Any advice gratefully received.

    Regardless of the recommendations you will receive on here, the only way to find out which club(s) are suitable for you is to take out a years membership and try it. We joined the Caravan Club and the Camping & Caravan Club and settled on the former. It suits us and the way we camp. You might find it's the other way round or indeed that none of them are for you.

    we have also been members of both clubs for many years but in the last 10 yrs have always leaned towards the CC sites,just our opinion of course(y)

    We're in both as well but if it had to be one it would be the CC. For some reason they just seem to have sites in the places where we want to go. However, we certainly don't use club sites exclusively. Look in a local book shop and you will find guides to UK campsites, the AA do one I think and there are the Alan Rogers books as well, both UK and Europe. But a lot of information now available on line, for example www.campercontact.com although its coverage of the UK is not perfect - it doesn't show some sites near where I live for example but it is certainly a good guide for Europe - which is where you should be planning to go! :)

    We're in the C&CC, MCC and CC. We mainly use C&CC and MCC meets and THSs but retain CC membership just in case we want to use a CL or site. More notes Here.

    :happy:This has all been very useful advice, thank you to one and all who have responded. I am now joining the CC as that seems to be the most popular and I'd rather not join more than one for financial reasons!

    Although I will always prefer a nice big pull-in layby ...
