Brief History of Lower Lacon Caravan Park Shropshire

  Lower Lacon Caravan Park started life as the back entrance of the Aston Park American Army Camp (which was a munitions and distribution depot) built in the 2nd World War, on land compulsory purchased from Clive's paternal grandfather. When they were developing the area they lost a D8 Bulldozer (it sank in the soil) so the Americans covered most of the Park with hard-core up to a depth of 3 feet, brought from local foundries, (which makes pegging in most places quite difficult) but this means we have never had to turn any customers away due to bad weather as our pitches stay hard all the time. Our hardstanding pitches were originally large Nissen huts in the Army Camp, so they are the original concrete floor bases (some are now tarmac topped) which makes them perfect for a Motorhome, American RV or Caravaners who don't like the grass.

  In 1971 Clive's parents bought the ground back and decided to develop a caravan site in Shropshire. We opened in 1974 with permission for 60 Touring caravans, motorhomes & tents / camping pitches. In those days, there was 30 acres, no electric and only a small shop and one toilet block, which was smaller than it is today and we charged 66p per night. Clive, Judy and Clive's Dad continued to Market Garden, on land across the road, to fund the development of the Caravan Park. Clive, Judy and their two sons Richard and Robert now own the Caravan Park following the retirement of Clive's mother and later the death of his father.

  Things have moved on a lot since those early days. We now have 52 acres of land, and accommodate caravans, tents, motor homes, seasonal pitches and static holiday homes, making Lower Lacon one of the largest caravan and camping sites in the Midlands.
We have 230 electric points, 2 toilet and shower blocks, 2 laundries, an outdoor heated swimming pool and a fully stocked shop with an off licence.

  New for 2007, J.A.K.K.S Barn, which is a family bar holding discos & live entertainment during the summer months and the adult only Club with a marquee for the children, also has live entertainment throughout the season (Check Events Tab).

  Also for the children (or young at heart) we have a crazy golf course & a play area. Finally, why don’t you come and meet our wide variety of animals, such as our Alpacas, Sheep, Kune Kune Pigs, Ducks, Chickens, Plus lots of Wild Life.

Spacious 52 acre site in the heart of the North Shropshire countryside.
