16 Great Holiday Parks with Fishing for Fishing Holidays
Our Favourite Caravan Sites with Fishing Lakes
There are no firm figures on the number of anglers in the UK, estimates vary from around 700 000 to 2 million, that is a lot of people and as a keen fisherman myself, I love the peace and tranquility, the de-stressing and the skill of coarse fishing. There are lots of holiday parks with fishing lakes in the UK, some are really good and some are ok-ish, it all depends on what you want to catch.
We have a selection of 16 holiday parks here with good fishing on site, some have very decent sized carp for example and some are more for those that just want to catch a fish, silvers as they are known, and have a bit of fun. These are not holiday parks that are set up specifically for experienced monster carp chasers, more for those that want family friendly facilities, good accommodation and where fishing is part of the holiday experience and we have 16 top caravan parks with fishing lakes for caravan fishing holidays here.
A lot of counties are covered here for our top 16 fishing holiday parks but we would love to add more so please let us know if we have missed a great park. If you have a more of a specimen fishing park, get in contact as we would love to build a page of parks where the fish get to a really good size for those with the patience to catch a specimen carp, pike, perch or tench for example, we might even come and try it ourselves. If you are looking for a late availability holiday, try searching through our last minute caravan park deals to find the latest discounts from the major park chains.
