We’ve had families coming to see us for over a century - 106 years in fact! So we reckon we must be doing something right. Maybe it’s the easy walk to the vast sandy beach. Or the location that’s close to the buzz of Great Yarmouth and beautiful and tranquil countryside. After all, there aren’t many places more relaxing than the Norfolk Broads.
Caister only opened touring for the first time in 2010, which provided a brand new touring area providing 46 luxury fully serviced Euro pitches and an excellent modern shower block. The touring area is ideally located close to the holiday park's central facilities which offer all-action holiday fun.
Or we have our comfy home from home, self-catering holiday homes? Take your pick from great value Standard to luxury Prestige.

I have to say that Haven have realy pulled out all the stops for this park, They send you a text to say how much they are looking forward to your visit about a week before you go ,a nice touch.
A warm welcome greets you when you arrive from the touring warden, THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE WHEN YOU ARRIVE IS HOW BIG THE PITCHES ARE,ALL YOU NEED IN ONE PLACE ,ELEC ,WATER,WASTE , TV HOOK UP.NICE LITTLE HEDGES AROUND THE PITCHES.
THE TOILET BLOCK IS MODERN, CLEAN AND WELL LOOKED AFTER,DISH WASHING AREA, ELSAN ,
ONLY A SHORT WALK TO THE MAIN COMPLEX WERE THERE IS EVERY THING TO KEEP YOU HAPPY.
THERE IS A LITTLE BIT OF ROAD NOISE IF YOU GET NEAR THE FENCE BUT YOU GET USE TO THAT.
YOU WILL NEED HEAVY DUTY PEGS FOR AWNING AS THE GROUND IS A BIT HARD ,
THE GRASS IS A LITTLE WORN OUT IN PLACES BUT THATS DOWN TO THE SOIL ,SOME THING THAT NEEDS TO BE LOOKED AT.
I REALY CANT FAULT THIS PARK AND WE HAVE BEEN TO MANY OVER THE YEARS,
I WOULD GIVE THIS PARK 5 STAR AND RECCOMEND TO EVERY ONE.
YOU NEED TO BOOK EARLY IF TOURING AS THERE ARE NOT A LOT OF PITCHES .

Just back from a 10 night holiday at Caister and I would thoroughly recommend it to any family with young children to entertain!
The all new touring section has really large pitches with EHU and drainage too. The pitches are large enough to accommodate any size caravan with a full awning, the car and still enough space to walk around all sides.
I didn't use the toilet block as we have our own shower but reports from neighbouring families said they were excellent too. With free swimming and a host of other leisure activities on site, junior football tournaments, table tennis and archery to name a few, there was always something to keep our grandchildren happy.
The chippy on-site is excellent, as is the pizza shop and both offer good food at reasonable prices. The Fun Tower has lots for the kids to have a go on and it's much cheaper than the fairgrounds in Yarmouth- try the steep slide and the zip wire- took years off me!
At night the bars are busy so go early if you want a table to enjoy the entertainment. Overall a brilliant campsite and quiet at night so no loss of sleep. Will definately go back as we have been to lots of Haven sites and this new touring one is excellent.

A new touring site for this Haven site. We have just got back from a week at Caister. Staying at the newly opened touring site on the formally all static and challet site was a treat.
We looked around the net for any sort of write up about this site but none was found so I guess it is up to me to start it off.
It has only been open since May this year (2010) and has 44 touring pitches available. All of them have their own EHU which supplies 16amps. Fitted to the stand is your water supply with a grey water drain just at the base. None of these are shared with any other pitch. The chemical desposable point is at the rear of the toilet block.
The pitches themselves are of a good size. Our caravan is 16 foot and with it set up there is three foot at the front end and six to seven foot at the rear so plenty of room for bigger units. When the van is set at one side of your pitch, as most were, you have enough room to put up your awning and have room to put the car next to it all. The front half of the pitch is euro reinforced while the back half is all grass. the pitch is surrounded by a hedge which has yet to do a bit of growing. When it does you will have a lovely private pitch.
The toilet block is all new so there was nothing to say about it other than they have the timer button on the showers and it only lasts for about 30 seconds but the temperature and water presure is good. It seemed to me that the toilet block was always clean, I think this was down to the people using the site and a very good warden called Joe. She will show you to your pitch on arrival and is very knollegable about the area.
On the site there is a fish and chip shop, Two bars and an ordinary shop and a chinnees takeaway who will deliver to your caravan. The main enertainment building has a bar and has the games machines in it. The mash and barrel pub serves meals but I found it lacking in quality and quantity. Two meals cost £20 and both added together might of made one meal. Nice fish from the on site fish shop though. Being a Haven site the prices are always higher than outside the site.
Just outside the site there is another fish shop and further along the road, about 500 yards yet another chinnees take away. Next door to that is a local pub and the beer was pretty good and cheaper than on site.
Out of the gates and turn left you will find the bus stop from where buses go to Yarmouth and the return stop is just up the road a few hundred yards. No need to use the car really.
If you arrive at the site from the north be aware that the tourer enterance is the second turn in. The sign cannot be seen from the first turn in which is the main complex. All in all a very good site with plans to expand from its 44 pitchs.
