Chichester Lakeside Holiday Park is one of the best camping sites in West Sussex, a short distance from the popular seaside town of Bognor Regis. Chichester Lakeside is famous for its hundreds of permanently owned holiday retreats, and also welcomes motorhomes, touring caravans and tents to their modern facilities and a variety of pitches, most with electric hook-up.
Chichester Lakeside Holiday Park stretches out over 150 acres of beautifully maintained grounds, the centrepiece of which is undoubtedly the park’s fishing lakes, of which there are ten in total. There is an excellent decking section stretching across the main lake, giving you great views or the perfect place to kick back and relax for the day.
A heated swimming pool welcomes the family members who are looking to be more active, whether they just want a fun splash or are looking for a serious swim.
Just a few of the many attractions in around Chichester to take up an entire day or just a few hours, include Chichester Cathedral, well worth a visit to view its modern art or to take part in a service.
For those who love to spend their day outdoors walking, near Chichester you can challenge yourself with a walk through Kingley Vale, an old woodland that feels like you’re walking back through the centuries. Experience lots of wildlife, staggering views, and a real feeling of peace and tranquillity.
Your whole family will enjoy an informative, lively and well guided tour through Fishbourne Roman Palace which commemorates, protects and preserves some of the remains of an excavated Roman villa in situ. You will be impressed and gain an appreciation of just how advanced Roman technology and engineering skills were.
On a bright sunny day visit Cass Sculpture Foundation, which offers beautiful pieces of work by renowned sculptors from the area, all in a stunning woodland setting and all for sale, meaning you can get a truly unique memento of your holiday on the south coast.

I wish i had read the reviews before i booked.
the touring site was uneven the tolets were so dirty i would not let my grandchild go in them. I was lied to by the staff when my grandaughters leg went down an open sewage pipe which was not covered and the uncut grass on the pitch had grown over it. this is the worst site i have ever had the misfortune to stay at. The pictures may look good but this place needs to be inspected for the safety of our children.

Me and my family had a great easter holiday at the park! We had a great clean well equipped caravan for the week we stayed. Also, we camped at the park last summer and will be camping there this summer, the staff are very friendly and helpful. Lovely settings, overall a lovely place to have a holiday!!

We have been to this site twice this year , and are hoping to go again soon!
The site is great, situated within 7 (?) lakes, friendly staff (nothing is too much).The Caravan we were in the first and second time we went were both VERY clean and very comftable. Entertainment is first class. We had there different generations visit the site, and we all completely loved it. The bar isnt over priced, and the food is lovely. I would definately recomend this site.

Oh dear - what a shocking site! Not a place to stay with young children. Very noisy with loud traffic early in the morning and late at night. Our caravan was filthy both indoors and outdoors with cobwebs, soiled sheets, loo top and squashed flies on the inside of the windows. Complained numerous times to staff but with no apology and no response. Never again!

Having not gone to this site for a few years thought we would give it another try.
Wish we had not bothered.
The Touring pitches were still uneven, double booked and we were put by the A27
was like staying on the Hard should of the motorway.
Staff not very helpful although always busy on the phone. Could not find dog walk or exercise field despite given a map.

We stayed a couple of weeks ago in a flooded touring field, with accompanying ducks swimming in the field! Our worst camping holiday ever. We were not allowed onto the site on Friday at 7pm as someone had already got stuck in the mud and had had to pay the AA to be towed out. We had to park in the late arrivals section and move in the morning . We asked why they had not cancelled our booking - they stated they were too busy to call everyone! We had previously booked into Bunn Leisure in Selsey who cancelled our booking the week before due to flooding on thier site and gave us a full refund. A policy this company should take note of. I asked for a refund and was told they do not give refunds due to bad weather! I persisted and finally got a refund for the awning only - but only because the lady in reception said "I caught the manager on a good day". There was no way you could pitch your awning in the water and mud! No-one was allowed to park on the grass - we all had to park in a line on the road in the touring field. We could not get our caravan out until the caravans in front had left as the road was only 1 1/2 vehicles wide. The lights in the touring field did not work, when questioned on this they said it was unusual bulbs and they did not have an electirian to fit them. We were parked less than 20 yards from the A27 and had to sleep for 4 nights with cotton wool in my ears!
The toilets were OK, but with a note saying they are closed each Monday for a couple of hours for cleaning - I would hate to there in a busy period - also no soap in the dispensers and a hand dryer which did not work. The only positive note - the park warden was very pleasant in the very adverse conditions his company had put him under.
A lovely clean site with great staff who are always willing to help, Clubhouse a bit on the small side but good entertainment, always somthing going on for the kids
Nice clean, bright pool with a lot of space to relax, the fishermen in the family will love the lakes

this site is very clean well run site,we found the staff very helpful.only thing that was not up to scratch was the fishing lakes ,the weed in them was covering most of the lakes , and some of the landing stages needed to be cleared ,it is these items that let the site down,but as a camper i would use this site again ,toilets are a1 as are the showers,
