Our “Top 100 Campsites” website has now received it’s phase II launch in 2011.

Top 100 Campsites

Top 100 Campsites

As the name suggests the site is only about featuring the top 100 campsites in the UK.

How do we decide what are the top 100 campsites? We don’t you do !

Our 500 Best Campsites site is undertaking a survey to find the best 500 campsites in the UK.

Only the top 100 campsites from the surveys will be featured on top 100 campsites.

The best of the best in other words.

Campsites that don’t make it into the top tear votes won’t be featured it is as simple as that.

Aims of Top 100 Campsites

The aims are simply to promote the top campsites only. Promoting the top also encourages less popular campsites to perhaps try a bit harder to please their visitors.

The simple reward for being a good site and making it into the “top 100″ is more visitors.

How to Vote

Voting is easy and no registration or personal details are required to vote for campsites in the voting.

Voting is taking place on Sites are listed by county.

If the campsite you think deserves to be in the top 100 is not yet nominated you can nominate the campsite using the “nominate a campsite” links on the site.

You can follow the progress of the Top 100 Campsites website here on our central Camping Blog Spot or on Twitter at

You can help by mentioning the site in your blog, twitters or facebook pages as the more voters the best the results.

We only want to feature the top voted campsites in Top 100 Campsites so your votes and nominations are important.


For the campsites that make it into the top 100 campsites listings the campsites will be able to feature our award shield on their own website to let visitors to their website know that are a top 100 voted campsite on an annual basis.

Categories for top campsite will include, England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

Top 100 Campsite award

Other categories planned for 2011 are “Coastal Campsites” and “Campsites in National Parks”.

Many of the websites we publish are to do with camping and campsites.

Many good campsites are also on “Holiday Parks” but not all holiday parks have camping facilities.

The two however are closely related.

We are splitting the holiday parks that we deal with into some websites dedicated to holiday parks whether or not they accept tents or tourers.

Holiday Parks that don’t accept tents and tourers are being removed from campsite specific websites such as Campsite Directory.


For 2011 we are Looking for the top voted holiday parks

International Camping | 2011 Update

No comments

The International Camping Club was originally launched in 2007.

International Camping Club

We are in the process of updating the International Camping Clubs’s website for a cleaner look and feel.

The ICC is a central place for Campsites and Camping Grounds to register and gain access to a growing network of camping website on which to promote their campsites and camping grounds.

There are already over 30 camping websites in the network and this is growing fast. Over the next year or two we expect to see this grow to around 200 camping websites dedicated to various regions, countries and types of website.

Some of the aims of the International Camping Club are to:

  • Link campers, caravanners and motorhome or RV’ers to camping websites
  • Help campsites and camping grounds promote themselves online
  • Bring together resources online to help campers find what they are looking for
  • Promote camping on the world wide web.

The International Camping Club is an independent club which is FREE TO JOIN.

Certain promotional activities undertaken by the club through a fast growing range of camping websites for campsite owners are subscription based but there is no charge to individual members to search the fast growing portfolio of camping websites that the ICC is involved in developing.

One central registration location at the ICC website gives campsites and campgrounds access to a huge network of marketing opportunities.

If you own or run a campsite, camping ground or camping business you need to get your camping business registered with the International Camping Club to gain access to these useful camping resources online.
