DIY camping starts with the Internet

12 June 2008

Taking the DIY approach when planning a camping vacation could save more money than booking a packaged camping holiday during the school holidays in August, the Telegraph reported this week.

According to the newspaper, investing in a good camping guidebook written for caravanners and campers with tents is often a good place to begin planning a camping holiday, particularly as many focus on the facilities available in the site.

Meanwhile, for those holidaymakers looking for a site off the beaten track, a Cool Camping guidebook may be just the ticket, as many of the sites featured have picturesque views and quiet locations.

Other useful sources for campsite and touring caravan site information include the three caravan and camping guides published annually by the AA.

These include detailed reviews and ratings for campsites in Britain and Ireland, France and Europe - the last of which features a selection of sites across the continent that have been inspected by the Camping and Caravanning Club.

Last month, the Guardian listed a number of "fantastic campsites by the pub" which may appeal to UK holidaymakers. Destinations on the list include Gunwalloe Caravan Park in Cornwall and Greenhills Holiday Park in Derbyshire.
