The campsites are open all across the UK. Some countries opened a little later than others and, at the time of visiting, I found that many had not been able to open their full facilities, mainly the toilet and shower blocks, so could only accept self-contained units. This is frustrating for those of the camping community with tents or campervans but means those of us with motorhome or caravans can take to the road once again.
I have been on three camping trips since sites re-opened. Two were in England – a large independent site and a small CL. And one small campsite in Wales.
The sites seem to be coping well with the new, hopefully temporary, practices and procedures but there will inevitably be teething problems as we all work out what works best.
I visited an English site on 4th July, the first day campsites re-opened, and the Welsh one a few days after their official re-opening, and could only spot a few, minor differences to the norm. Apart from the closure of the toilets and washrooms there were hand sanitizer at the doors to any open buildings, e.g. reception, and where handles would be touched, e.g. water taps and pedestrian gates. The pitches were large enough not to require empty slots to be left, the hosts and the other campers were as friendly as ever (in fact, perhaps because there were fewer of us in these first days or because of a shared ‘Blitz Spirit’ in the face of what had gone before, even more friendly).
