5 Caravan Parks Open this New Year’s Eve 

Not all campsites and caravan parks close their gates come December. Lucky for us camping fans, many stay open over the Christmas period and some even put on special New Year’s Eve celebrations and parties for their guests.  

So if you fancy seeing in the new year somewhere different (and much less crowded than by the River Thames) we’ve put together a list of our favourite caravan parks open in the UK this New Year’s Eve. All of them are family-friendly and all will ensure your 2020 begins with a bang!
