Search Press Releases

Friday 12 October 2007

The Camping and Caravanning Club’s SiteSeeker on-line camp site search facility is proving phenomenally popular, and has received over a million viewings since its launch in June.

SiteSeeker allows campers of all types to find their ideal campsite, whether they want to search through area, events or on the available facilities.  All Club Sites and Certificated Sites are featured, meaning that the user can view over 1360 sites across the UK. Aerial views of the sites and surrounding areas are accessible, as are motorhome friendly directions to sites; Ordnance Survey coordinates and OS style maps show the local terrain. 

Club Sites Committee Chairman Trevor Woodward says: “This new facility gives another opportunity for those looking for an adventure to find their perfect base.  It is really encouraging that we have had so many viewings – and it shows that the web is becoming an ever more popular way of finding a great holiday destination.

“A lot of hard work has gone into making this facility easy to use, and we will continue to review and update Siteseeker in 2008. The Club is committed to helping everyone share the adventure of the outdoors.”
