Camping, Caravanning & Glamping


Carney Pools Camping and Caravanning site will be closed from the evening of 16th September 2021 and will not re-open until 2oth September due to hosting the Staffs Fest 2021 Event. Please see latest news.




We hope you are all staying safe and welcome you as lockdown begins to ease. Here at Carney Pools we are keeping up to date with all current government guidelines and we would like to reassure everyone that we are taking all precautions to safeguard everyone accessing the site.

Presently, until 17th May 2021 we can only offer caravanning for self-contained units only. However, we are looking to open our new toilet/shower block from 17th May 2021 - so please watch this space!


The site is adjacent to the two coarse fishing pools known as Carney Pools, with panoramic views towards Cannock Chase and the surrounding countryside.

Carney Pools Glamping (Opening after 17th May on completion of new toilet block and shower facilities)

Why not come and spend a few days/nights in our newly purchased Bell Tents, set in the beautiful countryside adjacent to Cannock Chase AONB!

For more details please see Prices 2021

For touring caravans/camping and rallies there is a level seven acre field, sheltered by a well established hedge with fourteen electric hook ups, six of which are hard standing and grass so offer problem free caravanning even in the wettest of conditions. This area is open to all, so you do not have to be a member of any organisation to use it.  The field is ideal for most events, D of E camping and classic car rallies.  Both male and female toilets including an accessible toilet and two showers are in easy distance to the camping and caravanning field and CL site.

Dog owners can exercise their dogs in the designated dog walk area in the caravan field. No dogs are allowed around the fishing pools until after the fishery closes.  Please keep dogs on a lead and all fouling must be collected by the owner and placed in the designated bin. We ask that you view our Terms and Conditions before visiting our campsite.


Wolseley Bridge is less than one mile away, with a post office/shop and cash point within the petrol station. Bottled gas can be purchased from here too. There is a Vintage Inn Pub with good home cooking, an Indian restaurant/takeaway - with deliveries available to the site, a garden centre, craft and antique rooms and the well known Staffordshire Wildlife Trust Headquarters with visitor centre, cafe and walks. Other local attractions include The National Trust Shugborough Hall Estate, Amerton Farm Visitor Centre, Hednesford Races, Cannock Chase Visitor Centre and the National Arboretum. The area of Wolseley Bridge gives access to scenic canal walks too.  Canalside Farm Shop and cafe can be found just a stones throw from Great Haywood's Marina and both are well worth a visit!
