Hello Divadeb, CC sites are caravan club sites,and Cl,s are certified locations. CL,s are small locations for 5 vans only. To use most caravan club sites you need to join the club,although some do allow non members. Hope this helps. Regards John.

Just to try to make it clear for novices - the two organisations for caravanners are the Caravan Club and the Camping and Caravanning Club - which, as its name suggests is also open to campers using tents, trailer tents etc. Both clubs operate their own sites, in both cases known as Club Sites. The advantage of using club sites is that you know what sort of standard to expect. Most CC club sites are 'members only'; a greater proportion of CCC club sites are open to non-members, although regular users will soon recoup their membership fees through the reduced site fees. The government has delegated the licensing and inspection of small sites to the two clubs - the CC calls these certificated locations (CL), the CCC calls them certificated sites (CS). Facilities at CL's and CS's range from just a tap and chemical disposal point to hook-ups and toilets/showers. However in all cases these are restricted to just 5 caravans or motorhomes, and are members only, although normally non-members can sign up for membership at the site in order to be able to use them.

I hope this information is useful.

Caravan Club (CC) has about 220 of it's own sites with about half open to members only and over 2500Cl's ( small 5 five van independant sites of variable standard licensed by the club for members only ) , the standard of it's sites is consistently high over the whole network, it provides every service that a caravanner could need and all the services are comparable with the best of service that you can find anywhere. When you arrive at a club site you book in and pay your fees, no deposits are taken so the whole fee is paid at this time, you are then given information about the site and are told to go go and have a look at the pitches available ( all empty pitches are available ) choose one, set up and then let the wardens know where you have gone. Should you decide for whtever reason that you need to leave before the date that you have paid till, you can inform the wardens that you are leaving and will receive a refund of all fees for the days that you have paid for but will not be staying for.

 

Camping and Caravanning Club (CCC) has about 110 sites of it's own about half of which are members only and a network of about 1000 CS's ( like CL's ), the standard of the sites over the whole network is of a more variable standard with the best sites comparing favourably with the CC sites. It also provides a full range of high quality services for the caravanner that are just as good as those provided by the CC. When you arrive at a club site you book in and pay the remainder of your fees ( a deposit will be taken when you book which if you have to cancel for any reason should be available for you to use at some later time in the same year), the warden will decide where you are to pitch and will escort you to it and ensure that you have pitched precisely as he requires. Should you need to leave for any reason the fees that you have paid will be forfeit ( though in some circumstances by special request to head office giving circumstances and doctors notes be placed on account for you to use in the rest of the year )

 

I have been a member of the CC for 17 years and have never regretted it, I have been a member of the CCC on two occasion in the last four years and have on both occasions resigned it just did not suit me. I know of a lot of people who like and use the CCC so I would suggest that it is worthwhile joining both clubs and seeing which one suits your purpose best

I wouldn't want people to have the impression that CCC club sites are very regimented - far from it, I have always found the site staff to be very relaxed and obliging. I usually find that if I have a preference as to pitches, this will be accommodated if at all possible. Site staff will assist you as much or as little as you need - if they know you are unsure or struggling they will help, otherwise let you get on with it. The only reason for precision on pitching (normally a marker post indicates the rear back corner of your pitch) is for safety, to keep to the club's rule of a minimum of six metres between units.

 

 

My parents have been members of both clubs, and found that the CC didn't suit them, so I would echo the sentiment - try both and see which you prefer.
