    I have been using the CC for about 3 years now and for the same reasons many have talked about I would like an alternative. Having 2 kids and 2 dogs I have looked into C&CC prices and they fall well above the CC prices so this is the only reason we have not used them yet the C&CC sites that I have seen look so much nicer, less regimental and a better family atmosphere yet I have no idea what the discounts are like for members. Currently we pay on average around £25 per night with CC sites so it would be helpful to know from some C&CC members what they pay for a similar setup so I can make an informed decision when renewal is due early next year.

    We tend to use THSs and rallies rather than main sites (or even CLs/CSs) these days. With the C&CC and MCC there is generally no booking required but that is not the case with the CC. For that reason we will retain C&CC and MCC membership but probably cancel CC membership.

    Hi Big bus man.
    Try CC. Cl's. I could stay on super CL's for £15 a night,with ehu/shower and some with views to die for.Most take dogs and being out in the country,(There are exceptions),walking,cycling is just a step off site.
    We are members of the c&cc,but only for a site in the New Forest,ex Forestry commision, a weeks discount there, and we have our subscriptions back,so if ever we needed to stay at another c&cc,we are ok. A mate of ours was into Country and Western music Rallies with the c&cc,and i was led to believe that at the Rallies,you just turned up and pitched up,perhaps someone could verify this for you.

    We do both; what else could we get for the price? - nothing that gives us so much value!

    We do both.. prefer c&cc though . . It's more expensive but a little less regimented imho

    I prefer CClub imo better quality sites and pitches .
    The only awkward warden I have encountered was on a c&c club site on Skye which has perhaps coloured my opinion as far as " the friendly club" is concerned.

    I have been a member of both but now only the C and CC, I am single though so don't seek family atmosphere for children.
    Definitely less regimented in my opinion.

    You really don't need either, just look at this site,
    http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/
    More sites than you can shake a stick at and most cheaper than any club, it also contains details of club sites which mostly you can use for a pound or two extra.

    Yup.. used that site quite a bit.. I find some of the reviews are a bit odd though.. We went to one site that had really been slated and found it lovely..
    Take reviews with a pinch of salt would be my advice ;)

    Joined both in first year if MH, only used c&cc once so didn't renew 2nd year. Would happily rejoin if planning a trip that covered sites of theirs in the future.
    Advantage for us with either is free dogs, a lot of commercial sites charge for dogs, don't allow, or restrict numbers.
    If there are locations you will use with either or even both would join at that point. c&cc you have to pay deposits.

    We are members of both as it gives us flexibility of location. There is usually one or other of the two in the area we want to visit.

    Prefer C&CC sites in general and the additional benefit of the Age Concession means they are our first choice on most occasions.

    I have known some quite young "old farts". So how old do you have to be to officially be an old fart??

    With two youngsters you qualify for the "family deal", is that still higher than the CC rates?

    I'm a member of both.
    I find that CC web booking is really easy. lots of sites/choice (CL's & club), club sites are to a good standard, won't tolerate any nonsense/noise etc. plus my breakdown cover is with them for me which covers any vehicle incl. MH and covers any vehicle my wife's in which for us, was cheaper and a better deal than elsewhere and you don't have to pay a deposit in most cases when booking a club site/72hrs can policy. Downsides are, most of the club sites are out of town/you need a car/public transport. Rules - too many. some good but a lot are pathetic and there's the good ol'wardens (not all of them, but a good proportion).
    C&CC - the worse web booking site I have experienced. Serious glitches. site descriptions inaccurate - all reported but to no avail. Plus, you have to pay a deposit at time of booking which is non refundable. Having said that, they've got plenty of choice, allow tents at all sites, a friendlier arrival welcome along with escorted to your pitch, more relaxed on rules, less stuck up.
    Ive kept with both because of locations of sites of where we wish to visit.
    Personally, I feel that pricing of a club site is very similar for both and what some may complain about one, others on here will disagree and say that they've not experienced the same.
    If you can afford it, join and see what you think for a year and then decide from your own personal experiences which best suites you.

    Like many we have been members of both organisations for many Years (circa 1971?) Recently we have used mostly access to C/S or C/L sites. And reserve use of Main sites for "special" outings. I was at one period an Officer of a Centre Even!.

    IMHO. there are good and bad aspects to both, I find that now that they are both doing "special offer" deals we have the best of both and using "off peak" periods, can be quite cost effective.

    I do however miss the "Full service, hookup" of the US sites!!. But I suppose we cannot have it all!!!:coffee::coffee::coffee:
