A waterside site, right in the heart of Bristol's beautifully re-developed dockland, linked in the summer by a river ferry to the city centre, with its lively shops and entertainments. The Industrial Museum houses the first purpose built caravan, The Wanderer, built in 1880 for The Club's eventual first vice-president; the Bristol Jupiter aero engine, cars, buses, lorries and a replica of Concorde's flight deck. For families there is a lot of attractions and places to safely play.

Baltic Wharf Caravan Club Site
Baltic Wharf Caravan Club site is situated just 5 miles from the M5 motorway. This makes it an ideal location either for overnight stops or as a great base for exploring the historic cities of Bristol, Bath and the surrounding area.
It is to be found in the heart of Bristol’s redeveloped dockland and is just a stones throw away from the river. On our first visit we approached the site with some trepidation, not having stayed at an urban camp site before. However, on arrival we were pleasantly surprised, the site is neat, compact and secure.
The 2 1/2 acre site may be a little too compact for larger outfits, as some of the pitches are quite narrow. Although the site is small, clever planting of trees and grassy areas give it a tranquil air.
The washblock is modern and immaculate with free hot showers . There are facilities for disabled people, and there is a laundry and veg prep area. There are no childrens’ play areas or dog walk, although access to the quayside can be found through a locked gate (key provided on arrival).
The large dock basins built at the height of the Industrial Revolution are now given over to yachts and canoes. From here you can take a river ferry (or walk) into the centre of Bristol with it’s shops and waterfront bars and cafes. The Bristol to Bath cycle route also runs close by. Further down stream the SS Great Britain is well worth a visit if you have time.
If you don’t feel like cooking there is a friendly waterside pub close by which serves traditional food and on warm evenings the quay is a pleasant place to sit and watch the boats.
There is so much to see and do in the area for all ages, from Bristol zoo to National Trust properties. The site is open all year round and has level, all weather pitches, making it an ideal location for a weekend break, summer or winter.

I am not sure i want to share this gem with other people it might stop me getting a place next time we go with every one booking.
The wardens are very nice and helpfull ,we arrived on speck but they found a spot for us .
This is one of the nicest site have been to in many years of touring,
well layed out and spotless every were, toilets and shower immaculate,
a walk out the back gate takes you on to the river and you can walk or catch a ferry to Bristol.
Next door is a pub with good food and a nice place to have a drink as the sun sets.
This site will get very popular so you need to book but its worth it.
We will be back if you dont all book it up first.
