About Cottington Lakes Caravan & Camping

Cottington Lakes Camp Site is set in approximately 10 acres of Kentish Countryside, just outside Deal and off the A258 Sandwich Road 

The site itself consists of 3 separate designated camping areas.

  • There is a dedicated CL (Certificated Location) site for Caravan and Motorhome Club members which offers space for 4 caravans wanting electric hook-up and a further space for a self-contained motorhome.
  • The main site offers space for up to 15 caravans/motorhomes with electric hook-up, with space for a further 10 self-contained caravans in a large area of open grassland.
  • The final more secluded area is available for up to 5 small caravans and tents.

The campsite is well situated, on the outskirts of the popular seaside town of Deal, with its many pubs and restaurants, together with a variety of museums and a theatre. For those looking for a more rural holiday, Cottington is well situated for the many seaside/clifftop and countryside walks that make up the White Cliffs Country walks, as well as being adjacent to Betteshanger Country Park, a popular venue with cyclists, but which now also boasts an outdoor cinema (seasonal), as well as hosting many local events.

If sampling the local history is your pleasure then Deal and Walmer Castle are just a few minutes away, whilst Richborough and Dover Castles are also within easy reach of the site.


Cottington Campsite is situated within the very popular Cottington Fishery, which makes the campsite ideal for anyone wanting to spend a quiet afternoon on the bank with a rod in the water. There’s no need to book in advance (unless you are wanting to fish the specimen carp lakes where booking is essential) as there are 6 lakes to choose from and plenty of space to distance yourself, if you prefer.

Tickets are available from the on-site tackle shop – AKC, who not only supply a wide range of angling accessories, but are also more than happy to provide advice hints and tips free of charge!

There are limited shower and toilet facilities on site, which are cleaned daily by a local family run company.

Lastly, but by no means least, there is a café on site. The Lake House Kitchen (formerly the Kingfisher Cafe) is now open, offering a variety of hot and cold drinks, snacks and ice creams.
