Dunbar Camping and Caravanning Club Site is situated perfectly on Scotland’s “Sunshine Coast,” the range of nearby attractions making it one of Dunbar’s most popular holiday parks as well as one of the best in all of East Lothian. Open from late March until early November, the park has pitches suitable for motorhomes, tents, and touring campervans.
In addition to offering electric hook-up capability, we also provide natural gas canisters on site for guests that need it, as well as facilities allowing you complete laundry, washing up, and dispose of any chemical waste you may have. Our on-site shop means you never have to leave the site if you are looking to escape life and simply switch off and relax during your time with us. On-site internet access means you can keep up to date with whatever you need to from the comfort of your accommodation, too.
Our site has a children’s play area for younger family members to explore and run around in, while we also welcome guests who bring their pets along to experience the joy and wonder of the East Lothian coast. We are situated between Dunbar Golf Club and Brox Burn, meaning golf and angling are immediately available for lovers of these relaxing activities. You can also walk alongside the burn, which comes out at the coast, or veer off into Vaults Wood to explore nature and enjoy some beautiful photo opportunities.
We are also close to a nature trail and wildlife reserve, from where you can take guided walks during the summer months. The town of Dunbar itself is only three miles away from the site, and there are several routes you can take should you wish to walk on a good weather day, although there is ample parking to take advantage of in the town centre should you prefer to drive.
You can access a number of popular local landmarks and attractions from the site, with museums, breweries, and distilleries proving to be especially popular. You are also only a short drive away from many other great places, including Edinburgh, which has one of the best zoos in the United Kingdom, and North Berwick, which houses a Concorde aircraft at its Museum of Flight.
An ideal base for exploring East Lothian and venturing further into Scotland, Dunbar Camping and Caravanning Club Site places you in the perfect spot whether you want to find the best towns and cities, coastline, or countryside in the local area.

We have stayed on this site twice and have enjoyed the stay both times. Both stays were two week duration.The site is kept litter free and the wardens different ones on each of our visits were equally as friendly and helpful. The shower and toilet facilities were kept in excellent condition.Plenty of showers and toilets and wash basins in mens and womens blocks. There is an Asda store just down the road on the A1. The site is quite exposed and we had some fantastic gales while on our visits so an awning was out of the question for us. If walking is what you like its a good walk down to the beach with the dog and a good walk along to Barns Ness lighthouse. You will even be able to collect golf balls on the beach that have over shot the runway from the nearby golf club. For first time visitors to the DUNBAR site if heading along the A1 from Edinburgh you will need to pass the Asda store and carry further on 1/4 mile to pick up the sign for the cement works and turn. Coming from the Berwick upon Tweed A1 side you will pick up the cement works first, you will have to cross over the A1.I think landmarks are always useful for visitors if its their first visit.
We will be coming again at some point in 2010. If we could give stars I would give it a 5. Thankyou caravanning and camping club.
