Established in 1984 by the present owners John and Barbara Walden and now managed by their son Sam, the site covers 15 acres, is beautifully landscaped, interesting and well equipped. It is graded by the AA (3 pennants) and has a silver Professor David Bellamy conservation award.
The facilities, which are being upgraded are just right for the family. It is surrounded by open countryside and a perimeter trail which is ideal for children with their bikes and walking your dog. For the fisherman there are lots of large carp, tench, roach, perch and bream. Good Pubs are within walking distance.

England 02 May 2012
Peaceful, charming and very relaxed. Having stayed several times with my daughter we have always found Blackland Lakes to be a charming, lovely little English campsite. Its set in a fantastic part of England with wonderful views and great charm. Its a perfect little retreat for families being also very dog friendly with great grounds to walk on and let your children play freely and absorb a lot of nature - which is what campings all about! It has great facilities which cater to all your basic needs. The site is well maintained, clean and tidy. Being tucked away in a gorgeous part of Wiltshire we always enjoy our stay. We love this campsite and look forward to coming back later this year.

We visited this site with friends and have never stayed on such a disgusting site before. Firstly there were no screw fittings on the taps to enable us to attach our water hose. The pressure was so great that it damaged our pressure reduction valve. The pitches were appalling, mostly weeds and mud. As for the shower blocks they were so disgusting, completely unusable, not only old but covered in mud, mould and were dirty. We luckly had showeres in our caravans and didn't use the shower blocks. The dishwashing/vegetable preparation areas were also very dirty. The shop was extremely poor. The whole site looked extremely rundown and untidy. There was a general smell of drains throughout the whole site. [Part of this review has been removed due to it's unfair and rude nature]
