Penderleath Caravan and Camping Park
This 10-acre campground is about a 5-minute drive from local beaches, and has access to a hiking trail that runs along the entire Cornish coast. There is a pub on the campground, and for those who don't have an RV ("caravan" in British English) or tent there is a stone cottage available for rent. The place is a former farm, and the old stone barns have been converted into the campgrounds showers, bathrooms, market and laundry. There are electrical hook-ups for RVs, but not water hook-ups.

Trevalgan Touring Park
Situated amid heather-covered hills, this site also accommodates RVs, but has only electrical hook-ups for them. There are showers, as well as a common TV room and common game room on the property. For the kids, there is miniature golf and a playground. During the peak season (summer months, give or take a few weeks), the park operates a shuttle bus to St. Ives. The campground accepts pets, but requests that they be kept on a leash.

Little Trevarrack Holiday Park
Within sight of Carbis Bay, this 20-acre campground is within walking distance of a local beach. The campground has an outdoor pool, game room, and WiFi available across the park (although signal strength varies). There are also showers, a laundry and a shuttle bus to St. Ives. The property is divided into five meadows, which in turn have three levels of facilities. The most RV-friendly set-ups have electrical, water and waste hook-ups. There are others with only the electrical hook-ups, and then there are meadows with no hook-ups at all. The latter are therefore the most tent-friendly, since RVs are not likely to be found there. Pets are permitted if kept on a leash.
