Whether you prefer a pitch with a sea view or want to park your camper in a leafy valley, Rozel Camping Park is a family-friendly Jersey campsite that offers both in a location that’s the perfect base for exploring the island. Here’s our review after staying over May half term.

About Rozel Camping Park

Rozel Camping Park is regarded as one of the best campsites in Jersey. It has the five AA pennants to its name and it’s not hard to see why.

It’s family-run with four camping fields, each with something different to offer. There’s sea views, pitches in a sheltered valley, pre-pitched tents and spots right next to the facilities.

The site is well maintained with attractive flower beds and plants around the main facilities. Add to that a friendly welcome, a great location and, top of my kids’ campsite wish list, a pool.

This is why Rozel Camping Park caught my attention while we were planning our holiday in Jersey.

So, what did we think after our stay? Read on for our full review!

Arriving and getting around

Just a short 20 minutes drive north east from the Port of St Helier, the campsite is on a bus and cycle route making it easy to get around without driving. 

We took the last ferry of the day from Poole and arrived at the campsite just after 6pm.

We were met by one of the owners who gave us a warm welcome and took our croissant order for the following morning.

Be aware that there is a separate entrance for motorhome and caravans as the main entrance has a tight corner. This is sign posted.

If you do want to avoid using a car, Jersey Zoo, the beach at Rozel and the coast path are walkable from the campsite, but be aware that there are no footpaths on the roads.

Expect narrow roads

We chose to drive most days so we could bring our beach gear. Expect narrow, winding roads not dissimilar to what you’d find in Devon and Cornwall. The maximum speed limit you’ll find in Jersey is 40mph and with good reason.

Pitches

There are three fields for camping: one with a sea view over fields, one in a small valley and another close to the converted farm buildings and play park.

Pitches at Camping Rozel are all on grass. They are marked out, good sized and flat. Bring your rock pegs as the ground is quite hard.

We were pitched in the sea view field but up against the hedge so couldn’t see the twinkling lights of Brittany in the evenings. However, we did get a spectacular sunset in the other direction.

Facilities 

Camping Rozel has lots on site to keep kids entertained all day; my girls’ favourite of which was the outdoor pool. This is heated and has sun beds (not the comfiest) on the poolside. There’s also a shallow toddler pool.

The swimming pool is open from 8am until 7pm each day. There’s no life guard.

There’s also a games room, free mini golf course, a play park and lots of space for children to play in front of pitches.

The toilet blocks have two family shower rooms with baby bath tubs and changing mats. The blocks were cleaned each morning and never felt busy, even towards the long May bank holiday weekend when more people started to arrive.

Other handy facilities include two sets of washing up sinks at each toilet block and a laundry room with coin operated washers and dryers. There were also irons and hair dryers.

Campsite shop

You can order fresh bread and pastries to collect from the campsite shop each morning.

The shop sells other food and camping basics plus drinks and ice creams. Don’t expect to be able to find full meal here. There was no meat, fruit or vegetables available when we stayed.

The campsite shop is open for an hour and a half in the morning and late afternoon.

There are lots of small convenience shops dotted around the island. We used Coop Locales. 

Is Rozel Camping Park dog-friendly?

Dogs are welcome at Rozel but you are asked to keep them on a lead. This wasn’t strictly enforced.

We didn’t find a designated dog walk onsite. We took Tin Box Dog for functional morning walks out the top of the sea view field towards the motorhome/caravan entrance.

Our Camping Rozel review

This is a relaxed and friendly Jersey campsite with perfect facilities for families and groups of friends. It felt safe to let the kids run backwards and forwards to the toilet block and mini golf on their own.

The swimming pool was a real bonus during the days when we decided to stay on site. The kids spent hours happily splashing about. And when we went out for the day it never took long to reach our destination. But this is Jersey – nowhere is far. 

If you’re looking for a well maintained, friendly site Camping Rozel Park is for you.
