Thank you for visiting the Lower Micklin Touring Park website. We are a small caravan park just ½ mile outside the village of Alton in rural Staffordshire.

We have 30 well spaced pitches (17 hard standing, 4 Super Grass and 9 grass) all with electric hook-up, set in a 2 acre field surrounded by further fields and with a fantastic view of the Weaver Hills and the southern end of the Peak District.

In addition to the adrenalin filled Alton Towers (2 miles) there is great walking, cycling and pub visiting in the Churnet Valley for those who are looking for more gentle activities.

    Overall, a great site, very very clean, very quiet, exactly what we hoped caravanning would be like, would definitely recommend it. Just hope future sites are of the same standard because the bar has now been set.


    The new purpose-built toilet/shower block is very very nice - possibly one of the best showers I've had on a campsite - and I like to stay on 5 star sites normally. Very new, very clean.


    The site is very quiet & peaceful with a play area for children and a good sized, mowed field where a ball can be kicked around. We really enjoyed our stay at this well thought out, family run campsite and would recommend it to other users visiting the area.
