Camping in St. Ives

Camping in St. Ives
St. Ives is a quaint seaside resort in Cornwall, which sits in the extreme southwestern corner of England. This former fishing town is now one of the more popular getaway spots in England, as well as being a major magnet for British surfers. If you're planning a visit to St. Ives, camping is a good way to keep the costs down.

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.
