I know this thread is a bit old now but just read and it is pertinent to me now. We have been members of both clubs for years. Now decided to ditch Camping and Caravaning Club, stay with Caravan and Motorhome Club and try more CLs.
We have had a number of run-ins with over -zealous wardens and on reflection (plenty of time in lockdown) they were all on C&C sites. We found that one site had left a negative comment about us on “the system” but never said a word to us. Next site maybe 6 months later we were welcomed by a warden saying she expected us to be trouble and would we like to leave now? All about family size and tent size.
Also found C&CC stops negative reviews from appearing on their website.
C&MC on the other hand are just clear on their rules, never had any issues.
Please note that C&MotorhomeClub do allow tents if they are just for sleeping, storage or wc. In practice that means you can have a 2 or 3 man small tent as an ancillary to your camper. A few of their sites allow tent to be your main unit.
People placing defamatory comments on a ‘system’ without you having access to them is an offence under Data Protection, contact the CCC and make a ‘subject access request’ they have to release anything with your details etc. by law. Outrageous.

Hi larrylamb. Looking to join the CAMC instead of paying but can’t seem to message you? If this is still possible are you able to message me? Cheers
Just to say this should have said ‘instead of paying for Britstops again’ - I wasn’t expecting to pay nothing to join CAMC! Have joined now and hope to get some use the next 12 months.

Just parked up on Cambridge, Cherry Hinton site.

Absolutely lovely. No traffic noise, clean facilities (just enjoyed a shower), good Mobile signal so was able to watch I-Player last night, dog walking just over the road, pub a few minutes away, easy access to centre of Cambridge, £20 a night.

It is great site, I am surprised that their facilities are open prior to the 17th, any details of the requirements/cleaning regime for such luxury?

They can open limited facilities because there are enough of them. Every other one closed to achieve distancing still leaves 3 open.

Standard wristband routine. Each time I went in I was the only one there. Covid influenced obviously but a trend I have noticed in the last few years of less and less using public facilities and relying more on own.
