Top site for beaches
This campsite is just over a mile from the beach and next to Africa Alive wildlife park.
The glorious beaches of the Suffolk coast are just one of the draws for our lovely Kessingland Club campsite which is tucked away behind the former fishing village with which is shares its name.
The campsite is spacious and well presented with level pitches, a family shower room, laundry and disabled facilities as well as a small site shop selling essentials.
The sand/shingle Kessingland Beach, is just a mile and a half from the campsite. This huge expanse of sand and sand hills (seals can be spotted from here) is popular with families. The beach also runs into Benacre nature reserve - famous for bird sightings every spring as migrating birds hit British land fall.
The area around our Kessingland campsite is great for animal lovers – in addition to Benacre you can see 300 species of birds at the RSBP reserve at Minsmere and right next door to the campsite is Africa Alive wildlife park, home to more than 80 species of animals from around Africa. Thrigby Hall Wildlife Gardens near Great Yarmouth has a tiger compound and tree-top walk to view the animals.
Lowestoft has everything you need for a traditional British seaside holiday from Victorian Seafront Gardens, fountains and two piers, plus Blue Flag award winning beaches. The sandy Lowestoft Beach, North Claremont has two piers and a number of cafes and seafront shops. The vast expanse of sand of the Blue Flag Lowestoft Beach, South Claremont makes it the ideal beach for sunbathing and sandcastles. Beach huts can be hired and there is an area with shops.
Head south to the beautiful seaside resort of Southwold. The town’s Museum and Sailor’s Reading Room provide an insight into the towns maritime past. There’s also a boating lake, Adnam’s Brewery is based in the town and head to the seafront to enjoy the award-winning beach, also famous for its colourful beach huts.

Right next to Africa alive which was a great day out.. could hear the animals. Wind turbines can create some sound but nothing unbearable. Pitches were great and had lots of space. Can't wait to return again :)

Reception lady was stressed and complaining of too many people arriving at once (it was bank holiday weekend, should have been expected). She later proved helpful and much nicer to talk too. Apparently a boiler was out so very limited (in fact none that we found) hot water, with the weather being cold the showers were unbearable, I had a 3yr and 5yr old with me too! No discount was offered, infact the only explanation of this appalling situation was a note on the shower room door! The wind turbines are right next door to the campsite, one either side, you cannot escape them and they are noisy at night, squeaking loudly as they turn (need some WD40). All in all it was a not one of my best camping experiences and I won't be returning.
