AA Campsite of the Year

Recognising excellence in campsites

The AA annually awards the title of national and regional campsites of the year to sites in recognition of exceptionally high standards, service and presentation.

To shortlist a potential award winner the inspector looks at recent improvements and innovations that make the park stand out from the crowd, as well looking at the overall quality of the park.
